"Now is a complex time to be in PR with more ways than ever to tell meaningful stories across an ever growing number of media platforms. Together with my partner Lisa Sheeran, we create those all-important personal relationships across print, blogs, broadcast, podcasts and those new communication platforms that have yet to be invented!"
