Durham & Co is a small and independent PR agency committed to offering professional, high quality and trusted communications services.
It was founded by me, Beth Durham, a strategic communications advisor, following a career in journalism and public sector PR spanning more than 20 years.
I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and a CIPR Accredited Practitioner.
The vast majority of my career has been spent delivering integrated communications in policing and local Government. I have provided advice and built enduring relationships with people operating at all levels locally, regionally and nationally.
My early career as a print journalist ingrained discipline and attention to detail, and a` respect for quality and collaborative working that underpins my service offer.
At a strategic level, as a senior manager and head of service for two police forces, I led the communications response to multiple complex and high profile events including serious crime and homicide, recent and non-recent sexual abuse, counter-terrorism, civil emergencies, VIP and Royal events, as well as integrated organisational change and public awareness campaigns.
More recently, I have developed and overseen implementation of the corporate communications function for a multi-million pound economic growth partnership in the UK’s fastest growing city of Cambridge, achieving greater stakeholder awareness, understanding and support.
I have many years’ experience in people management and in all areas of service delivery including HR, procurement and budgetary control.
