Nicola's Profile

Experience Summary

I work full-time in PR and am now in-house. I have experience running national PR campaigns, organising and running promotions and events across private, third and public sectors both B2B and B2C. I'm a media relations expert and have worked on Microsoft and Palm accounts. On promotions work, I've done everything from leafleting and hostessing to creative direction for photo shoots and promotions. I have specialist knowledge of the equestrian industry due to a personal hobby, alternative music (as opposed to pop and funky house) and I'm interested in either promo work that I can fit in round a full-time job and or festivals and music events. I'm confident, articulate and passionate about literature and the arts with a 2:1 degree in English. I can turn my hand to most things so drop me a line if there's something you think I could assist with whether it's PR strategy for a new product or an event you need help organising.
