Our Latest News
We have been very excited to welcome four new members to The Book Publicist team in the last few months. We thought it was about time we got round to introducing them all to you, for those of you who haven’t met them already. So, without further ado…
Teresa has a CV that would knock most people’s socks off. One of the first women to be appointed Head of Press at the London Stock Exchange, she went on to be Director of Media and Audio Visual at Amnesty international. There, she led the organisation’s global media response to the war on terror, successfully raising issues like Guantanamo Bay and the Abu Ghraib scandal.
She’s particularly proud of the fact that her team at Amnesty won the Foreign Press Association Press Office of the Year two years running. And that that her expertise was noted by the White House: “Amnesty International is entitled to their opinion. They’re pretty good at press releases we’ve noticed.” Sean McCormack, White House spokesman.
Teresa moved from London to Hay on Wye and we snapped her up in an instant. She loves working with all the amazing entrepreneurs and experts we are proud to call our clients – and the feeling is mutual!
Natalie read Philosophy at Cardiff University before joining the team last summer. She was an instant hit with both our clients and the journalists we work with – securing one of our clients a spot on national TV in her very first week in the job.
Jess also studied at Cardiff University, achieving an MA in Data Journalism. With her brilliant journalistic mind, she has sixth sense for exactly what the press are looking for and how to nab the best coverage for our clients.
Emma joined the team from the world of book publishing. After reading English and History at the University of York and completing an MA at University College London, Emma began her career at Headline (a Hachette UK company).
She spent three years working with some of the UK’s bestselling authors, helping to propel them into the Sunday Times bestseller lists. After developing a brand new independent publishers for a company in Herefordshire, we’re very pleased to say she joined us at The Book Publicist this month and is already securing national coverage and BBC radio interviews for our clients.
