Sarah Hall is a pioneer of best practice in the PR industry. The holder of the CIPR’s Sir Stephen Tallents Medal 2014 for exceptional achievement in public relations practice, she has established a reputation as an ethics tsar and diversity and inclusivity champion.

She is a strong advocate of accountable leadership and women in business and believes in helping young talent break through. 

Sarah is the CIPR's President for 2018, a member of the Northern Power Women Power List, features in the PRWeek UK Power Book and is a regular speaker at industry events.  She is one of Lissted's top North East England digital influencers and her PR-related blog is one of the top ten in the UK according to Vuelio.

Sarah is proud to be on the Athena40 Global Committee, an initiative launched  by the Global Thinkers Forum to discover and acknowledge the work of the 40 most dynamic, active and fearless female thought leaders, columnists, commentators and activists across all industries and from all over the world.

She was the first North East practitioner to become Chartered, a status that recognises the highest standard of knowledge, expertise and ethical practice within the PR industry and is a benchmark of professional excellence and integrity.

The founder and editor of #FuturePRoof, a series of books and community aimed at reasserting the role of public relations as a management function, Sarah co-edited a white paper with Ketchum CEO Stephen Waddington characterising the public relations agency business and another exploring the mental wellbeing of the public relations profession.

She spearheaded and has led the CIPR's gender policy work from 2014 onwards and this year launched a joint initiative between the CIPR, PRCA and Career Ready to improve social mobility within the industry. 

Her other voluntary commitments include acting as a Trustee for the Sunshine Fund

Sarah holds an MA in Marketing from Northumbria University, a BA (Hons) in French and Media from Leeds University and is a Google Squared digital marketing graduate.

When she’s not at work you’ll find her busy being Mum to two boys and walking her cocker spaniel Madge. You can also catch her being rather noisy on Twitter @Hallmeister.

The team at Sarah Hall Consulting Ltd is highly experienced in providing strategic counsel and aiding clients to articulate their purpose so they can communicate effectively with their target audiences.

As members of the CIPR and PRCA we adhere to a Code of Conduct through which we commit to maintaining the highest professional standards and investing in our CPD.

Prior to starting activity we carry out a full communications audit which includes the internal marketing function and wider marketplace. We also employ a channel agnostic approach to our clients' needs, which allows us to ensure the public relations and social media approach is based on robust research and insight.

We look at where your target customers and stakeholders are, what they consume, how they interact, what they want to know and ensure you have a presence on the channels that will have most impact, in a way that enables the organisation to properly engage.

This can be through media relations, influencer campaigns, events and social media, with activity monitored, measured and evolved as necessary along the way. Our public relations, content creation and video production specialists ensure clients benefit from high calibre work that achieves the desired results in terms of increased profile, engagement and sales. 

We utilise what is known as the Paid, Earned, Shared and Owned (PESO) model, which sees us focus on your Own content so this is pertinent and relevant to your target audiences. We then use Paid, Shared and Earned content, which means we employ influencers, the media and paid promotion to amplify reach and resonance.

This is recognised as best practice and reflects the latest thinking within the public relations industry. It also aids Search Engine Optimisation.
