Jennie Spears

Jennie is an experienced and confident communications professional.

A relocation to Bristol to start a family in 2006 prompted Jennie’s decision to leave her role as Head of PR and Media for the UK’s leading autism charity, and set up a freelance PR agency.

With a background in horticulture and experience across gardening, lifestyle, environment, education and food and drink, Jennie specialises in strategic planning, crisis and reputation management and consumer-facing PR projects.

“I am driven, in the main, by a love for helping people, businesses and organisations be the best they can be through effective communications. The changing media environment offers incredible opportunities for businesses and charities to talk directly with their audiences and stakeholders and we can help them do that in a timely and relevant way.”

Ali Hadley

Ali has more than 12 years of experience in communications, PR and marketing at international publishing companies, charities and not-for-profits. It was not long after going freelance in May 2017, that Ali started working with the Bloom PR & Communications team. 

Ali provides an extra pair of safe and steady hands across the full marketing and communications mix, supporting client projects with content and asset creation. This is often in the form of email campaigns, news stories, print promotional materials, social media management or photo research.

"I believe that good PR and communication is about sharing honest stories that help people in some way. We work alongside your existing team to build your story’s momentum and deliver effective communication that resonates with your audiences."

Sue Amiel

Sue has over 20 years experience with a background in business to business PR, and a particular interest in the environment and sustainability. Aside from her environmental work, Sue has worked in a range of sectors including property and regeneration, the public sector and charities.

Having directed numerous campaigns and projects, Sue is proficient at PR planning and targeting effort to the most effective channels. Media relations is at the heart of Sue’s experience and she has a breadth of expertise across regional, lifestyle and trade press.

“I always get a buzz from helping my clients get in front of new audiences, whether that’s via the media or other routes. My work is centred around supporting organisations that are having a positive influence on the world and communities. It’s a huge motivation for me to know that I’m helping good causes.”
