Since setting up her freelance business, Caitlin has worked with clients in different sectors including retail, interior design, homeware and antiques, food and health and the charity sector, but with her wide experience, is happy to have a chat about your business needs and ways to help position its brand, developing a PR campaign and support your marketing.

Relationships are key and the way you manage and handle the spread of your information can significantly raise your company's public profile. I can provide you with creative and engaging content to promote your business and communicate with your audience in press and print.
The perception of your brand is vitally important. I work with businesses to build their brand and to find the best ways to boost their social media platforms, develop e-marketing campaigns and create website copy, driving footfall and sending new clients your way!
In conjunction with PR and Brand Building, I work on strategic fundraising for charities, including corporate partnerships and sponsorships as revenue streams. I have experience in organising high profile fundraising events, developing and managing corporate partnerships and community engagement.
PR, brand building & fundraising consultant
My career began twenty years ago in Dublin. I worked for two national charities on their fundraising portfolios: building up events, corporate partnerships and PR reach and income; ultimately helping them achieve their strategic visions and goals. In 2006 I set off for the bright lights of London and for the next eight years I worked helping to developing links with top designers and celebrity clientele.
When the opportunity arose to work with York Theatre Royal as their Development Manager I took it. Once again I could put my PR degree and previous years working in the charity sector to good use. I developed corporate relationships for the theatre across the city, increased the number of stage partnerships and sponsors and grew the reputation of the organisation as a charity as well as a landmark theatre for its community.
Fast forward five years; I’m now putting my years of experience to work in my freelance career. I have the opportunity to work again with interior designers, retailers and the family business, and, am also able to utilise my learned expertise in fundraising and the corporate world.
