PHIL CAPLIN

Founder

I have loved being in the world of Broadcast PR for over 20 years' working with some amazing brands to deliver broadcast coverage on TV & Radio. I love getting under the skin of a client and a brief and seeing how broadcast can be best used to deliver a clients messaging across top tier media. I still get a buzz from seeing a client on national TV or hearing them on the radio. I am also known as Spill-I-Am as I always seem to forget to avoid having fried eggs, soy sauce or burritos before meetings.

Clients have a golden rule with me that I am not allowed to call before 1030 to allow them at least 2 coffees before they speak to me and they are prepared for my volume and energy. When not in the office, you will find me watching, playing, coaching sport with or (if Mrs Caplin allows) without my kids.

Favourite broadcast presenter/show: Magic At The Musicals……….don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!!!

SARAH CANN

Senior Account Manager

Over the last three years I’ve worked closely with brands such as Uber, the University of Bath, Amazon, Santander and Royal National Institute of Blind People to land top tier broadcast coverage. As a bit of a news junkie, I am passionate about reacting to the daily news agenda, working closely with clients to build long term strategies to get their brand on broadcasters’ radar, and creating meaningful and impactful campaigns that drive change.

A country, Midlands girl at heart, I’m also referred to around the office as “Sazzle”, “I’ll have a tea please” and “the snorter” when I laugh. I love reading, yoga, investigative journalism podcasts and if I’m not at work I’m usually getting a sweat on at spin or planning my next big holiday adventure.

Favourite broadcast presenter/show: Gayle Lofthouse on BBC Radio Leeds at teatime. She’s a gem.

Shelley Cukier

Account Executive

I joined BR as a gossip column reader but have since been converted to a real news lover who enjoys nothing as much as impressing my friends and family with my knowledge of current affairs. My favourite campaigns are those supporting a cause and I am proud to have worked along side prominent charities such as Time to Change and Spread a Smile.

As the newest team member at BR, I embrace being surrounded by almost 60 years of combined experience and aim to utilise my flair in blogging, instagramming and making people laugh (admittedly often at me rather than with me). My boss did always say work hard, play hard.

Favourite show- This morning with Holly and Phil

Charlotte McConkey

Consultant

Having explored the realms of journalism and ‘traditional’ PR, I turned my hand to broadcast PR in 2009 and it’s safe to say – have never looked back.

My career in the industry has spanned so many different sectors; from consumer to healthcare and everything in between. I often think that’s what keeps be glued to broadcast as each and every campaign is so different. Other than starting my own agency, by far my career highlight to date was playing a key role in Always’ #EndPeriodPoverty campaign which resulted in the Government changing the law, and is still running 4 years later.

My working week is usually full of meetings, catching up with my lovely clients and writing proposals – but I love nothing more than getting out and being creative; whether that’s on a video shoot, producing podcasts or just a good ol’ brainstorm where I get to flex my creative muscles!

My favourite broadcast show? Since Phil stole Magic at the Musicals (it really is truly brilliant), I’ll have to plump for Nick Ferrari or Iain Dale on LBC.

DARREN RUBACK

Director

I have worked in PR for almost 15 years with the majority of my experience in Broadcast. I am a true broadcast enthusiast, so much so that my dream job was to be the breakfast DJ on Radio 1, a dream I still hold to this day but sadly it’s fading away. But while the dream slowly vanishes, my enthusiasm for broadcast PR remains strong.

Over the last 15 years I have run the media teams as well as managed key clients including Smyths Toys, BT Sport, Gibraltar Tourist Board and Lloyds Banking Group

When it comes to the working week, you can either find me in the office eating fizzy sweets, running 5k’s or in the studio schmoozing our celebrity talent. Outside the office you'll find me in the gym, spinning the tunes on the disco decks or keeping my two boys out of trouble.

Favourite broadcast presenter/show – Chris Moyles (obviously)

JOSH WHEELER

Head of Broadcast Revolution North

I’ve worked in the magical and mystical world of PR for the last ten years. My first account in traditional PR was the Economist – which focused heavily on delivering broadcast coverage for analysts. Working at 2AM in the office placing spokespeople around the Arab Spring got me hooked.

Over that period, I have run regional offices as well as managed clients like Co-op Group, Kelloggs, United Utilities and Vodafone. During this time I have been lucky enough to be nominated for various awards – and take home the Best PR Campaign in the North.

In an average working week – you can either find me furiously scribbling down ideas to make a story fly or taking in as much news content as possible or I’m on the road (to meetings) performing in my car as the North’s leading Ariana Grande tribute act.

Favourite broadcast presenter/show – Victoria Derbyshire, nobody else comes close.

Dan Tredler

Director

I can’t believe I’ve been in the wonderful world of broadcast PR for over 15 years, surely I don’t look old enough! One things is for sure, I’ve loved what I have done since day one and that’s helped build great relationships with clients and deliver amazing campaigns of activity for them.
Luckily for me, this has taken me to some exotic and less exotic places all over the world, filming and recording content and running broadcast activity.
Work life balance is mostly achieved by being clad in Lycra and cycling or running 5 or 6 days a week and having a very understanding wife and two teenage boys.

Favourite broadcast presenter: Ken Bruce BBC Radio 2
