Six Sigma Public Relations was founded by Andrew Turner, a member of both the UK’s Chartered Institute of Public Relations and the National Union of Journalists. He has more than 18 years of in-house and PR consultancy experience.
Six Sigma Public Relations is all the things that many traditional PR firms are not: grounded; pragmatic; cost-conscious; value-led; fleet; intelligent; literate; technology-aware and commercial.
Andrew has provided PR consultancy to many major corporations, including Corus, Kvaerner, Amex, Nokia, IBM, Sony, GE and ICL, as well as many less-well-known businesses in niche sectors.
Andrew began his career in the marketing department of BT, gaining Communications, Advertising and Marketing Foundation (CAM) qualifications. In 1998, he left his position as a board director of The Public Relations Practice Ltd, a consultancy he helped to establish, and formed Six Sigma PR after working as an independent consultant, writer and editor. www.sixsigma-pr.co.uk
He is a member of PRI, the group for independent PR consultants who have passed stringent scrutiny of their professionalism and financial standing. Click here for more information: www.indiepr.org.uk/
