Founder and MD
Entrepreneurs and the UK’s go-to PR expert for disruptive entrepreneurs. Alison has over 20 years international PR and Marketing experience, working for the European Commission in Brussels, Accenture in London, a pioneering e-commerce in Italy and a property firm in New York.
With that experience behind her, Alison founded her first business in 2003 in the food industry. With no budget for marketing, Alison used her PR skills to get the business noticed. Within months, her business and products were mentioned in leading magazines and national newspapers and talked about by influencers in the industry. The business did so well on the consumer side, she launched into the trade sector too and was soon supplying the foodhalls of Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason and Harrods as well as Michelin starred restaurants across the UK.
In 2013, Alison set up Adia PR to help other businesses both B2C and B2B achieve PR success. In just under 3 years, Adia PR is now supporting some of the UK’s top entrepreneurs who are change-makers, industry-disrupters, thought-leaders and experts in their field.
Adia PR helps entrepreneurs to raise their personal profiles in their industry and increase their brand visibility predominantly via media coverage, awards and crowdfunding. Alison is ranked in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards Top 100 Most influential journalists, bloggers and writers in the entrepreneurial space.
