Sarah Chidgey, Net PR

PR, Publishing / Press / Media, Social Media

Sarah is a smart, highly-experienced PR, with a proven track record for getting B2B businesses vital profile on a national and regional stage.

Sarah works with clients to understand their business and marketing objectives and turns this into a strategic but actionable PR plan.

An NCE qualified journalist with over 10 years’ PR experience, Sarah is adept at extracting compelling and meaningful angles from complex business propositions to secure awards, high-profile press coverage both online and offline, while building strategic relationships (analyst or otherwise).

Net PR was started in 2012 after Sarah witnessed the impact the Internet was having on the way news was generated and disseminated. From Twitter to Facebook, to Instagram, the rise of bloggers and Vloggers, news is being moulded by influencers like never before – and is affecting how companies interact with customers, stakeholders and industry peers.

Clients span the full B2B spectrum including technology, sustainability and manufacturing. Sarah also has experience in the education and digital agency marketing sectors.

Net PR’s approach is strategy-first. All retained and project clients will receive a strategy that details where they want to get to, and how that will be achieved.

Before going into PR, Sarah cut her media teeth as a cub reporter on a weekly newspaper, moving to the sister daily publication, where she rose through the ranks to health correspondent; undertaking a number of investigative stories and honing her emotional intelligence. Sarah is a runner, tennis player and keen traveller. See www.netpr.co.uk
