Virtual, on-demand Public Relations and copywriting to get your business noticed
Hello. I’m Tam. I’m an independent PR consultant and copywriter in Cambridge with clients in the UK and beyond.
With 14 years' experience raising profiles for some of the best-known consumer brands and B2B organisations, I know how to get you noticed.
If you're short on time or resource but need effective, results-driven PR or copy that converts: Gather Creative is the small, but perfectly formed agency for you.
Food & drink, tech and health & lifestyle brands are my passion and my little black book is packed with high profile contacts. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of the UK’s biggest-selling FMCG brands and, thanks to spectacular planetary alignment - the European Space Agency and CERN. Start-up or larger organisation, consumer or B2B audience, I develop campaigns to help you stand out from the crowd.
If you're looking for bespoke PR that delivers measurable results, or tight, bright copywriting to persuade your customers: my virtual service gives you exactly that. Get in touch for a free consultation and find out how Gather Creative can add real value to your business.

Tam is a rare individual whose no-nonsense, get it done attitude is mixed with depth of quality and real passion for her work. She is not only one of the most effective and energetic people I've met, she's also a pleasure to work with, being down to earth, humble, helpful and sharp.
Paul Maurice, Senior Communications Officer, DANTE
Tamsin is reliable, diligent and has a good sense of humour. She was responsible for many of our marcoms functions; producing copy for the European Space Agency and Technology Strategy Board. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a marketing professional who can apply themselves to a wide range of challenges.
Alexander Efimov, Director of Sensors and Instrumentation, Electronics, Sensors, Photonics KTN
Over the last few years we have worked with many marketing and copywriting professionals but Tam has proved to be the best. Her talent to understand client’s needs, professional approach and ability to meet deadlines make her our first choice.
Eugene Rozidor, Managing Director, Belsize Construction Ltd
Tam did an outstanding job drumming up some excellent opportunistic PR for our website. She's proactive, highly efficient and benefits from excellent contacts with top UK journalists. She achieved much better than expected results in a fraction of the time we'd allocated. Very highly recommended.
I needed to raise the profile of my company locally. Gather Creative managed to get us three fantastic pieces of editorial in our local paper within the same two weeks. The phones started ringing almost immediately. Highly recommended.
Rob Elton, Owner, Point Blank Fitness
Tam has the advantage of having spent a number of years as a senior PR practitioner, which has provided her with valuable expertise for her current role, and to interpret a client's brief and provide high quality work. She is also a pleasure to work with.
Wendy Akers, Managing Director, Mustard Communication
The European Space Agency wanted to highlight how space technology could benefit the rail industry. Tamsin secured a double page of editorial in the industry’s key magazine to coincide with the UK's leading rail event.
Mark Littlewood, Senior Business Development Manager, Qi3
Tam is an active member of Cambridge AWiSE and regularly takes part in group discussions and other activities. She has provided us with some excellent blog posts, through which she has displayed her high-quality copywriting skills, attention to detail and sense of humour.
Claire Lucas, Information Scientist, Cambridge Display Technology
Tam is extremely knowledgeable and was more than able to give PR support when needed. I was very happy with the work Gather Creative did for the launch of our school and we are now working together on another project.
Ana P, Owner, The Garden school
