Hello. Thanks for visiting my website

Alex Singleton

Perhaps you:

  • are looking for public relations advice and ideas
  • want your team to be PR trained by someone who really knows inside the media
  • need a new PR strategy
  • want your PR department to be audited and benchmarked against competitors, and receive a report with genuinely helpful advice on how to increase results
  • want a top PR consultant who knows what will work

I’m a former journalist, who’s written for The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, Mail Online and a whole range of newsstand magazines over a 16 year period. And I’ve been on pretty much every important TV and news channel including BBC Breakfast, Channel 4, Newsnight, Sky News, and BBC radios 1-5 during my career.

The result? I instinctively know how to create a story that will interest the media – whether in print, online or for broadcast.

More recently, I’ve trained, coached or consulted for hundreds of firms large and small, such as Kellogg’s, AXA Insurance, HSBC and Harrods, charities such as the Joseph Rowntree Trust and AsthmaUK, plus governmental bodies such as UK Trade & Investment and the CPS.

Enjoy the site – there’s normally something new. And why not drop me a line and let me know your needs? I normally reply personally.
