I’m Leigh Greenwood, Corporate PR Manager for Slimming World. I’ve been working in PR since about 2003 after a couple of years as a journalist at a local newspaper.
I completed the CIPR Diploma in 2013, graduating with a Distinction, and found that really changed my perception of how important a good PR person can be to an organisation. Since then I’ve been part of a PRCA award-winning in-house team at Slimming World, led a CIPR award-winning ‘best healthcare campaign’ (see my ‘what’s your tipping point?’ post) and presented on social media best practice at the PRCA BRAG Awards.
I am currently on the PRCA/PR Week Fast Track Mentoring Scheme, which aims to develop the next generation of PR and communications leaders and have done some work with the Media Trust, who put media professionals in touch with charities that could benefit from their skills. I’m a sporadic blogger, dipping in and out so don’t be alarmed if I go a while without posting. I’m probably still alive!
