Kayleigh McGann

I am an ambitious, determined individual with a passion for communication, currently studying Public Relations at Leeds Beckett University. In my first year, I attended a placement one day a week at Brass Agency, where I gained experience working in a fast-paced, professional environment. I both acquired, and built on, relevant skills needed to work in a PR environment. These skills include being a coherent writer of press releases, blog posts, media lists, and various other social media posts. It has also given me the confidence to be able to speak to a diverse range of people in a professional manner. I can offer the ability to generate fresh, new ideas that give new perspectives for a company and can also improve their strategies.

My fascination for Public Relations stems from my desire to write and my enthusiasm for social media, as I love having the ability to connect with so many people on so many different platforms. I have the relevant abilities to create innovative campaign ideas and social media content tailored to a company’s needs. Examples of this include managing the social media accounts for Slumberdown and Hammonds Furniture, creating media lists for Blacks Solicitors, and writing blog posts for Snuggledown.

The ideal sectors I would like to progress into following my graduation include music and entertainment, B2B, consumer, and public affairs. Music and entertainment are areas I feel I would be strongest in given my passion for both, and I am already trying to involve myself in this category by assisting in the PR for Leeds music collective Youth Club Sounds.
