About me

RSDR7124I established Straight Bat PR in 2012 after a fifteen year career in local government and charity communications.

An established PR professional and communications manager, I now work with clients in charity, retail and technology providing strategic communications support and media relations services.

During my career I have been responsible for large teams providing 24 hour media response for front line services including fire & rescue, highways and social services.

My experience includes crisis and reputation management, emergency response, social media, campaigns and internal communications.

I played a lead role in the emergency response press team during the 2007 Gloucestershire floods and was responsible for flood recovery communications during the clean-up. I have extensive charity experience, from repositioning and rebrand campaigns, to public affairs and corporate partnerships.

My CIPR awards include a national award for flood recovery communications and a CIPR Pride award for a change campaign related to the redesign of council services.
