For over a decade I have been working with some of the world’s leading companies – Harper Collins, LazyTown, Stobart, Warner Bros. to create award winning campaigns that get noticed, achieve results and make a significant impact on the bottom line. I have a particular expertise in working on preschool brands, brand licensing, health and fitness. I like to think of myself than more than a PR chick and my clients can attest for this. By understanding their business, I help their business to grow and these days that's as much about column inches as business development. After twenty years working in the media and endless networking, I have a fat contacts book that I like to share with the people I know. So, aside from PR, I also experienced in sourcing third party strategic partnerships opportunities, marketing and social media. I take for granted what other agencies make a big deal about!

Talk to me and I'll get others talking about you...

Wave Goodbye to Bad Bacteria, Say Hello to Better Air

“We all know that outdoor air quality causes massive health problems. What about indoor air? The same applies. You’ve heard of Sick Building Syndrome. And doubtless you’ve felt tired or listless in an office, other public space or even at home. Or you may have allergies or asthma, meaning purity of air is vital.

Our modern buildings, often sealed off from fresh air, allow bad bacteria to multiply, leading to illness, bad smells, moulds, and allergens. But what can be done about it? Filter the air, add chemicals to it or condition it? Is that still the best way to combat the cause of the problem?IMG_3009

At Better Air we think not. You’ve heard of adding probiotics to your digestive system, by eating yoghurts like Actimel or Yakult, or in tablet form. A simple and effective idea, the good probiotic bacteria drive out the harmful bad bacteria.

Now you can do the same with air. Here’s a simple way to improve your air quality, by injecting good probiotic bacteria into your indoor space as a mist. The misters are either handheld pumps, or an electronic version.

The good bacteria get into every nook and cranny, literally. They cover all surfaces, invisibly. They occupy the bad bacteria’s living space, and with nowhere to live or multiply, they die out. Goodbye mould, bad odours, allergens.

The mist is totally safe. Pure water and tiny quantities of probiotic bacteria. Colourless. Odourless. No preservatives, no chemicals. A 100% green solution to a worsening problem.

How do we know it works? Solid scientific research proves it. You can read more at www.better-air.org.uk

And testimonials from satisfied customers. Here are two.

From the Sisley family in New York, concerned about dust mites and mould.

“I have been using Better Air products since May 2014. We love it…the best I have purchased for air purification”

From Thomas Lee in Hong Kong, whose son Paul has asthma.
“So grateful for Better Air. We have tried many alternative treatments and nothing worked.  2 weeks ago he has stopped his medications and has not used it since. His general mood and vitality increases”

Perhaps the best thing about Better Air’s BioZone Probiotics™ is it removes the need for chemicals to combat bacteria. Recently much has been made of microbial resistance to chemicals. They don’t work as well as they used to. Many people are reluctant to allow any chemical based products into their homes, precisely because of worries about their ineffectiveness, and adverse allergic reactions.

With Better Air, no concern is necessary. No chemicals are used. No allergic reactions to worry about. Just better indoor air. Read more about the product and the science at www.better-air.org.uk or contact our authorised reseller www.healthy-house.co.uk for expert guidance on which product to buy, and how and when to use it.

Better Air is suitable for any indoor environment. Use electronic version BA-008 safely in your home, or workplace, or use the travel sprays for hotels, trains, planes, or your car.”
