This week's Wednesday Winner is the uber talented Camilla Brown of Campbell Brown PR. Camilla is an established PR + social media expert, who left Manifest London earlier this year to co-found her own agency with Helen Campbell. Camilla's past work includes campaigns for BrewDog, Sarah Beeny and Thomas Cook.
Newnham: What's your background?
Brown: I had NO idea what I wanted to do when I was younger, but just knew I loved working hard and the money that came with it. When you're 16 and loaded, it makes the decision about NOT going to Uni WAY easier! So I started in fashion, moved to hospitality, before randomly temping at a social media agency (1000 Heads). It was there I discovered my love for social, which led me into PR at Manifest London. From there I found my calling!
Newnham: What do you do now?
Brown: At the beginning of this year I set up a brand spanking new PR agency called Campbell Brown with my superstar partner, Helen Campbell. It's been a whirlwind so far, but a bloody fun one. We have won around 20 clients/projects in under a year and they're still coming in thick and fast. Our team has gone from two to five and we hope to see more and more CamBros joining the team soon.
Newnham: If there's one piece of advice you could give a younger Camilla, what would it be?
Brown: Don't mess with your hair too much! And remember that a broken heart at this age ain't got nothing on when you're older...
