about me.

about me.

As a former Business Editor at a daily newspaper, I know exactly what journalists, editors and broadcasters are looking for in both written and visual content and what a business can do to ensure their content is used every time. I also know exactly what journalists don’t like and what mistakes not to make. Coming from a journalism background, I have another form of knowledge in the industry that publicists do not, as well as established relationships with local publications.

I have worked with a broad range of B2B and B2C businesses in lots of different sectors, from small local start-ups, to international corporate firms. One of the benefits of journalism that lends itself to public relations is being able to be an expert in any subject. Whatever your sector and whatever your objectives, I have an option for you.

My services, which include written, visual and multimedia content, public relations, videography, photography, design, social media management and training, cost a fraction of an in-house PR professional and will ensure success, every time.

My aim is to help you utilise what you already have to allow your business to, not only grow, but flourish.

After studying multimedia journalism at South Downs College, I went on to spend four years studying media and journalism at the University of Portsmouth, leaving with a degree in journalism. I then spent a year working at The News, Portsmouth as the Business Editor, on a temporary basis. During this time I built up a good network of both media and business professionals, from a broad range of industries. I also discovered a love I had for helping people grow their businesses, which is from where Hope Mckellar PR was born.
