Bio :
I run Parrot PR and Marketing, and while my head office is in Shrewsbury I work across the whole of the UK and internationally. Parrot is a creative marketing agency working across a range of sectors with a specialism in the specification industry.
What's your biggest accomplishment? :
After more than a decade of marketing and PR in the lighting industry, I set up Parrot PR and Marketing. With my extensive communications experience, combined with a specialist knowledge of the sector, I was inspired to set up my own consultancy with a focus on this. Being able to represent a plethora of brands from across the whole spectrum of the industry has been the best decision I have ever made.
What advice would i give others looking for a job in lighting design? :
Marketing and PR is a fantastic industry with lots of opportunities, so my advice would be to not overthink it, simply take the plunge and start applying for jobs. Working in marketing builds up a wealth of transferable skills, so don’t feel you will be pigeonholed into one sector – try different ones out and see what makes you happiest.
