Biography

Elizabeth is a senior comms consultant listed in the PRWeek Power Book 2019. She has an in-house and agency background and experience in a range of sectors including fintech, personal finance, tech, youth, education, nfp, international development, health, housing and the arts.

Elizabeth is the founder of BME PR Pros which she describes as “one person’s little attempt to promote diversity in the sector”. She developed and manages every aspect of the initiative in her spare time including the popular BME PR Pros / PRWeek Mentoring Scheme, the website (which she likes to point out "has had had more than 200k hits all through organic growth in a 16-month period") and all social media channels (she takes full credit for the Daniel Kaluuya gifs). She has held BME PR Pro events (with all BME panels), delivered diversity workshops for agencies including Weber Shandwick and lobbied industry publications to diversify their judging panels, speakers and commentators. Future plans for BME PR Pros include what Elizabeth describes as “a big scary idea” as well as the first BME PR Pros conference in November '19 (she stresses it will have all BME speakers but won't be about diversity) and “the inevitable” podcast.
