About Bridget Stott

Working as both an in-house and freelance consumer PR consultant and events organiser since 1996, Iíve gained recognition for delivering great stories and original angles about my clients to key journalists in radio, international, national and regional newspapers and glossy magazines at just the right time.

Iíve also been working as a freelance design, lifestyle and travel writer since 1998, for, amongst others, The Telegraph, the Observer, the Guardian, Sunday Times Style, Sunday Times Travel magazine, Conde Nast Traveller, Harpers Bazaar, Tatler, Brides, Elle Decoration and Marie Claire.

Combining pr skills and freelance writing has given me a unique insider track on what editors are after. I know what makes a good story angle, understand and can advise on photography and have a huge list of contacts and long-lasting friendships within the media. Working from home also means my overheads are minimal, making me more affordable.

Educated in the UK and in New Zealand, I attended Auckland University and then Bristol Polytechnic, where I read Law. On graduating, I worked in magazine publishing and at News International, before landing my first job in pr as an account executive for a wine distributor in New Zealand. I later worked as a full-time staff writer on an Auckland-based design magazine. On returning to London, in-house at Virgin.net. Clients included Wrigley, Lego, Virgin.net, Miele, Centura Foods, Whitbread and Nestle.

In 2001, I moved to the Cotswolds, where I continue to work as a freelance pr consultant and writer, stylist and events organiser.
