Freelance PR & Communications Consultant at Mancroft Communications
I’m a freelance Public Relations and Communications consultant with fifteen years’ experience in PR, both in house and agency, and 20 years of front line political experience.
I help organisations to have a strategic approach to PR to support their business goals. In particular, I develop and deliver tailored stakeholder, community and political engagement programmes.
I am a CIPR Chartered Practitioner with a broad knowledge of communications, business, management, politics and community activities. I have an MBA, the CIPR Diploma in PR and am a Member of CIPR.
As a skilled communicator across many sectors I have been heavily involved in media relations, internal and external communications and multi-stakeholder engagement.
A particular area of expertise is in managing stakeholder engagement around controversial projects and major planning applications, having delivered numerous public consultation programmes and political engagement activities.
I have a detailed political understanding, having been directly involved in local politics for over 20 years. I am a local councillor and was a Parliamentary candidate in 2017 and 2019. I’m passionate about sustainability, corporate responsibility and business ethics and like to think of myself as adaptable and flexible, an experienced manager with strong consultancy, organisational and team leading skills.
