Fast PR - Give yourself a huge media boost

Paul Blanchard is a PR consigliere to CEOs, global thought leaders and billionaires, and has been running his media consultancy firm for nearly twenty miserable years.

If it doesn’t work - this book will tell you why. It’s packed with snippets of accessible and highly practical advice from some of the most able communicators in the world. There’s no waffle, and no messing about – just exactly what you need to know.

About the author

Paul Blanchard

Paul started in business aged 17 and is the founder and principal consultant of Right Angles. With offices in London and New York, and a staff of twenty, his practice is at the cutting edge of professional reputation management. For his clients Paul is an enabler; a consigliere, confidante, adviser, fixer and friend. He’s had some spectacular global PR successes – all of which you will read about in his book – and some ridiculous failures too – of which only some will appear.

Alongside his media consultancy practice, Paul had an active career in politics for well over a decade: a former parliamentary advisor, he served six years elected in local government and stood for Parliament in 2005, his campaign gaining the largest vote increase in the country. He has a degree in Law, and Fellowships of the RSA, The Royal Institution, and the Institute of Leadership & Management.

A self-confessed media geek, he also presents the popular podcast Media Masters – a series of one-to-one interviews with the very top people in the media world. With several hundred thousand listeners, it is one of the most listened-to media podcasts in the world. Away from work, he lives with his wife Heather (and their dogs Billy and Betty) on a farm near the village of Moulsoe, Buckinghamshire, UK.
