Ann Pilkington (MCIPR MSc Dip CAM)

What Ann says:

It’s a real privilege to meet and work with so many professional communicators. Studying provides a great opportunity to step back a bit from the “day job” and so I like sessions to be reflective, challenging and interactive.

One of my interests is communication on projects, an area that is often overlooked which is what prompted me to write my book on the subject.

I also do consultancy which helps me to understand how communication practice is changing and reflect this in my teaching.

Having started out in regional journalism, I moved into PR working with high profile brands The AA, BT, The Woolwich and Barclays. My next step was to lead on communication for large government change programmes before co-founding  PR Academy in 2007.
