Motivated by a desire to address pressing social challenges through effective communications, Becky founded Slack Communications in March 2013.

She is author of Effective Media Relations for Charities: What Journalists Want and How to Deliver it and regularly trains charities and businesses in how to work with the media.
An experienced event curator and chair, Becky has worked on political events in Westminster, at the political party conferences and for large charity conferences.
