Media, PR & crisis communications

I can help you reach your target audiences via the mainstream or specialist media, manage your public relations campaigns and provide crisis communications management for any issue or crisis, potential or realised.

Strategy, advice & counsel 

Bespoke communications, PR, media and stakeholder engagement strategies to help you communicate more effectively with your audiences. I can also provide strategic advice and counsel for strategies or issues you may already be working on. 

Training, workshops &  capacity building

I provide tailored private or group training for all communications disciplines and making sure you or your team are equipped to manage your own communications through capacity building and upskilling.

Strategic communication

Strategic communications can help drive alignment between the communications function and an organisation’s core objectives. I can design plans, tactics and messages to help contribute to the effective delivery of an organisation’s overarching positioning, influence and strategy.

Advocacy communication

I can work with you to develop a strategic advocacy campaign to assist your organisation to influence and drive change including policy, laws, regulations, or other decisions that affect people’s lives by increasing awareness of issues, and influencing uptake of research findings and policy briefs.

Jackie's expertise has given us a communications roadmap to where we want to be. Her understanding of who we are and how we can best convey this has been amazing. Jackie has worked with us at both strategic and tactical levels to iron out kinks, explore new approaches and further develop our message; she gave us solutions to questions we didn't even know to ask! We look forward to continuing to work with Jackie into the future and highly recommend her.
