Testimonials

I really enjoyed working with Helen. From just one long conversation, she came up with loads of angles for interviews ahead of my ITV Dancing on Ice appearance, resulting in a great piece in The Mail on Sunday. It was refreshing to work with someone who understands the TV industry too, having worked in it herself. And she gave interview advice on how to avoid answering things I didn’t want to answer.

Lucrezia Millarini, ITV News Presenter

Helen has been the missing link for me becoming a thought leader for building enterprise leaders. Helen complemented my domain expertise by driving awareness and branding. She got me a high profile speaking engagement at Collision and helped me write articles around my books and placed them in publications targeting entrepreneurs. I enjoy my weekly call with Helen and am impressed by her follow through.

I’m impressed by Helen’s multi- skills. She helped me with many aspects of my MEP publicity campaign after putting myself forward to be London MEP in the May 2019 Euro elections, advising on the wording of my website, filming short videos for social media, finding press opportunities and giving an overall advice. Being an ex journalist she is good at matching the things that I am passionate about and can talk with authority on, to the topics in the news.

It was a pleasure for my Marketing & Communications team at Samsung Electronics to work with Helen and her company. She consulted and supported us in enhancing marketing coverage in the EU and UK regions across various media including social media, blogs, videos for strategic marketing campaigns, and the Ventures side. Once the plan was is in place, Helen was very dedicated to executing to achieve the deliverables, and provide periodic progress reports, and highlighting key outcomes.

The Thought Leadership PR Team

Helen Croydon Journalist and Author turned Media Consultant

Helen Croydon

Behind Thought Leadership PR's concept is Helen Croydon. She created a fresh approach to PR, focussing on raising the profiles of the people behind a business, rather than the business itself. That's because people have more PR value than businesses do!

It's also because, with nearly two decades experience working as a journalist across broadcast, radio and print, and as a best-selling author, she had to work hard to raise her own profile.

Helen has written for every major national UK newspaper from The Sunday Times to Metro to The Daily Mail, worked as a producer for ITN for a decade and has appeared on Sky News, BBC News Channel, ITV This Morning, Newsnight, Woman’s Hour and more.

It is this decades worth of knowledge and media contacts with which she applies her unique results-driven formula for creating thought leaders and boosting personal profiles.
