Position: Chair 2019-2021
On Council: Since 2018
I have been involved with the Birmingham Publicity Association since I moved back from London in 2004 and after a previous three-year stint on the Council I have been elected as Chair for the 2019 – 2021 period.
I believe the BPA is an important organisation for the marketing and creative industry of Greater Birmingham. It creates a real sense of community across a range of organisations, from the big international agencies and media groups through to smaller start-up organisations and freelancers. By working together through networking and knowledge creation this community can deliver great things, from raising thousands of pounds for local charities to engaging speaker and events, through to some fantastic social occasions.
I’ve benefited from being a member over the last 15 years and it’s helping my new business welikeconversation.com and it’s great to be able to part of the Council to create those opportunities for others in and around the city.
