Hel's corporate comms background

Back in 2007, Hel first started using social media when she was a communications officer in local government, with a MySpace page dedicated to getting people to help a council restore a town hall.

There was no rulebook, and what she learned in those early days was invaluable.

 

During her time in the public sector, she worked on many creative digital communications projects designed to be shared and talked about, like this campaign about dog poo or this social media response to snowy weather or this ‘learn as you do’ approach to a budget consultation on YouTube.

 

Then she built a business helping comms teams tackle the problems she had faced as a comms and digital team leader.
