I’ve been supporting Virgin’s team with its regional PR this week, as its #VOOM Pitch to Rich campaign hit Manchester. This national competition is inviting entrepreneurs to pitch to Sir Richard Branson for the chance to win a share of a £1m prize fund, with regional events all over the UK in the run up to the London final. My client Renaud Visage, founder and CTO of Eventbrite, was on the expert panel at the Manchester event, offering advice to contestants and inspiring them with his own startup story. Working alongside the Virgin team and their PR agency as the Manchester consultant, I secured media attendance and interviews around the evening, generating coverage in all the key business titles in the city. It was an inspiring event and great to be involved.
