Freelancer

Work:
After an extensive career as a journalist in broadcast media, running news teams at radio stations in the north of England, Alistair joined the team at Freedman Brown around 10 years ago to provide freelance PR/event support and media training for their clients. Elsewhere, he works closely with social enterprises and charities to improve their public image and marketing offer and another string to his bow is his work as a chartered business adviser where he has helped to start-up dozens of new companies.

About me:
Having worked on several newsdesks, I know how to deal with journalists to get coverage for clients. Among my many highlights on the radio, I interviewed the tallest and fastest men in Britain on the same day, built up contacts with a host of politicians of all parties and had the last recorded interview with comedian Les Dawson, 24 hours before he died.
