Yorkshire lass, pig owner and founder of Listening Pig.
I’m Katy Pollard and provide quality, no-nonsense PR for people who care about people.
I’m a journalist turned PR pro who specialises in health and wellbeing and small businesses and have more than 15 years’ PR experience – plus time spent as a journalist and editor which means I can see the view from both sides of the fence.
I believe it’s not just about who or what you know, it’s about the right attitude. As a northern lass and pig owner, it’s in my nature to be practical and straight with people. You won’t get any ‘sweety, darling’ Absolutely Fabulous waffle from me! Just plain old Yorkshire gumption.
My clients have described me as tenacious, focused and deadline-driven and I believe that’s why I get high profile articles published in, for example, The Guardian, HuffPost, Telegraph, Independent, Stylist magazine. Ask me if you want to see examples.
As someone who is constantly curious and life-long lover of learning, I have a CIPR Diploma and MA Journalism and have particular expertise in media relations, copywriting and internal communications.
When not writing, you can find me hiking in the Yorkshire countryside with my Beagle, Ivy; contemplating what to conjure up from the garden for the next meal, tending to my menagerie (which includes GwenPig, chickens, ducks, dogs and a male human) or searching for the perfect Rioja.
Don't leave me this way
