Heather Butcher

Currently working as Head of PR for a road safety charity. I started my career in journalism where I trained in-house. I worked on B2B trade titles including Supermarketing and Hairdressers Journal for seven years, splitting my time in the editorial teams across the news and features desks.

I then moved into PR where I have spent the last 25 years in a variety of agency and in-house roles. I have run my own agency, headed up clients and key accounts in specialist and full-service teams. I’ve worked on many blue-chip and international clients, celebrities, influencers, start-ups, and global companies. I also offer crisis PR support and training. Throughout my PR career I’ve taken the lead on crisis communications for hospitality and key consumer brands.
