My first PR project that I took on was helping publicise the website launch of www.alexswallow.com; Alex is a social entrepreneur and a charity titan who started his own charity ‘Young Charity Trustees’ and became a Chief Executive for a charity at the age of 30. I provided a social media coverage and advice and distributed press releases to industry specific journalists, writers and bloggers. I raised awareness of the launch and who Alex Swallow actually is through writing a blog about his credibility and achievements throughout his working life.
“Kieren very kindly provided pro-bono PR support for the launch of my website, alexswallow.com (social entrepreneurship). I was extremely impressed with the effort Kieren put into the assignment, how quickly he mastered the brief and how he brought many ideas to the table that I wouldn’t have thought of. It was a pleasure to work with him. Kieren is rapidly making a name for himself in PR- a talented individual who will go far.” Alex Swallow- Linkedin
Very early in my career I sought the help of PR professional Peter Holt. Peter runs his own practice which focuses on the private sector. He commissioned me to do a research project for a project he is looking to run. I had to market research on who was providing a similar service across social media platforms and other methods of sharing across the internet. The next section of the research was investigating and reporting on what different platforms are available, for example, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, WordPress ect. The final aspect of the report was advice for the launch. My ideas for helping him launch his project, which consisted of competitions and prize give-aways.
On the 16th January 2015 KEPR (Kieren Exley Public Relations Ltd) came a registered Corporation!
