About me

I am Amanda Thurston. Content Creator. PR Consultant. Brand Communications Expert.

With 15 years’ experience spanning reputable London and Bristol PR agencies including Seventy Seven PR (Fishburn), Four, and Speed Communications,  I am a hands-on PR and Copywriting professional with a proven track record in developing insight-driven strategies that get to the heart of a business story, creating compelling content to engage and inspire, and delivering meaningful campaigns with tangible results.

Working with consumer and b2b clients, my experience spans global brands – Nestlé, Bidfood, Nescafé, Hamleys, Hotels.com, Expedia Inc, Hyatt hotels and Cuddledry – through to smaller independents and start-up businesses.

“Coming up to our 10 year milestone since first appearing on Dragon’s Den, we were keen to reinvigorate our communications strategy to create cross channel campaigns that take us ‘beyond the product pages’…

“Amanda has done a great job for us, driving forward some consumer research that has not only created new shareable content  for PR, but also for our wider marketing, digital, and social platforms, which is so vital as we grow the e-commerce arm of our business.

“She has also made good headway with our Christmas PR campaign and has supported our new product pipeline: reaching out to the national media, collaborating with digital influencers, and generating thought leadership and advice.”

“We recently worked with Amanda to help raise our profile in the SME investor media, with the aim of exposing the business to new investment opportunities. As a result, we’ve been featured in a number of great SME media titles, which has not only raised our business profile but has also created a solid talking point for potential investors.”
