It’s been twenty years since Lisa Jones first cut her PR teeth with London’s Heart FM. Since then, she’s operated in the retail, FMCG, financial, transport, healthcare, construction, technology and media sectors in London and the Midlands; picking up a few regional and national communications awards and coveted Chartered Practitioner status from the CIPR.
Working with brands ranging from Lloydspharmacy and Warburton’s to Pitcher & Piano and the NHS, Lisa has always been willing to take on a new challenge, successfully turning her creative copywriting hand to event management, media relations, internal communications, training, blogging and social media. She loves nothing more than dreaming up an engaging concept and rolling it out in as many ways as possible – thinking about every single route to a client’s customer.
In a voluntary capacity, Lisa is a Trustee and Director of the Phoenix Cinema and Arts Centre in Leicester and has been elected to the CIPR National Council for 2017-18. She was also a judge for this year’s CIPR Excellence Awards and CIPR PRide Awards, and has close links with the CIPR Midlands committee.
