Suzanna Hammond

“During the course of my career I’ve been very privileged to work with many talented people: my team, of course, and also many clients both from major brands and start-ups. I still get a buzz from seeing them all flourish.

What we offer is a ‘360-degree’ approach, based on a blend of consultancy, marketing and PR support, backed up by relevant experience and impressive contacts.

Over the years, I have worked with businesses across a wide range of sectors, from food, healthcare, technology and green energy, to luxury, lifestyle and fashion. To mention just a few, these include TSB bank, Price Waterhouse, SmithKline Beecham, Hewlett Packard, Amex, Kodak, Ford and British Gas. 

Sally Bodo-Davis MBE
Corporate Associate

“I am a seasoned communications professional with over 25 years’ experience working for local, national, and international businesses and organisations.

Throughout my career I have developed and implemented communications campaigns for manufacturing, education, health, trade associations, property development, green construction and green energy, and the public sector. I have also supported numerous professional services businesses in the following industries: law, accountancy, HR and people development, and financial headhunting.

Skilled in the development of strategy to communicate core values and key USPs to target audiences, I have the ability to tell compelling corporate stories that help win allies and influence people.

Communication is increasingly a two-way street and, with my good understanding of interactive social media and its contribution to effective campaigns, I believe I am a safe pair of hands to help build profile, win respect and attract new business for any organisation pursuing high visibility and growth.

After a 4-year period as a social entrepreneur, I was awarded the MBE in 2013 for my unique, pioneering portal for careers speakers in schools and universities. Now under the banner ‘Inspiring the Future’, it is also operating in New Zealand and Iceland.

Jenny Hall-Thompson
Lifestyle and Retail Associate

“My background was originally in retail, initially at Harvey Nichols, ultimately heading up their press and marketing department. I then moved to head up PR at Liberty, then to Aveda as UK Marketing Director, before moving into PR consultancy.

Retail is my forte and I am fortunate to have forged good shopping and lifestyle contacts. I enjoy the creative process and adding marketing value to our PR programmes – as well as masterminding our consumer campaigns, both nationally and regionally. I also enjoy working with brands that have green and eco interests.”

Carole Stewart
Creative and Media Associate

“Having worked at Reuters, I focus on the corporate and business side. What I especially enjoy is getting ‘under the skin’ of a company to understand what makes them tick.

I have a very forensic approach and along with my journalistic skills enjoy creating and running successful international launches and campaigns with a particular emphasis on the healthcare sector.”
