I’m excited to grow professionally alongside such a dedicated group.”

“We’ve been delighted with both Sophie’s approach and enthusiasm to learning about both PR and our clients, making a positive contribution to agency life,” says Nick Bailey, director at Elan PR. “Her experience of dealing with snappy penguins, stubborn zebras and soft and cuddly bears could well be valuable with some media!”
