I’m Fiona Taylerson. I set up as a senior freelance communications consultant in 2016 following a successful career at various blue-chip organisations in the UK and USA.
I have more than 17 years of experience (four in the USA) and offer expertise across business-to-business (B2B), business-to-consumer (B2C) and corporate PR, social media and internal communications (see the services I offer here).
My background includes a mix of PR agency experience, a client-side role managing a PR agency at Pernod Ricard UK, providing in-house PR support at A-B InBev in the US and heading up an in-house communications team of eight for the B2B division of Sky.
If you need me to focus on high-level strategy and planning, no problem. Equally, I’m just as happy rolling up my sleeves and getting stuck into day-to-day tasks to deliver what you need.
I specialise in drinks (spirits, wine, beer and no-alcohol) and technology (B2C and B2B across a broad range of tech subsectors).
I’ve invested in training and qualifications to deliver strategic advice and expertise you can trust:
- Digital Mums Advanced Diploma in Strategic Social Media Marketing (read about my experience here)
- CIPR Internal Communications Diploma
- WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) Advanced Level 3 Certificate
- PR Academy Social Media Certificate
- Potential Life 10x Leadership Programme
- Institute of Leadership & Management accredited training
Finding the right freelancer, often at short notice, can be a headache. Until someone is ‘tried and tested’ it’s impossible to know whether you’re making the right choice. Reassuringly, my clients consistently come back to me when they need support and recommend me to others. Why? I work to integrate quickly to deliver results and pride myself on providing the type of support you’d expect from a permanent senior hire.
