Gather Creative

Virtual, on-demand Public Relations and Copywriting to get your business noticed

About


Gather Creative, blacknwhite460x288v3 About, Cambridge Public Relations

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.

Praise


Tam is a wonderful find. She is very skilled, obliging, patient and helpful to work with!

Dr Janet P. Palmer, Lord Ashcroft International Business School, Anglia Ruskin University

Creating a 50 page manual for SME's from three years of EC research was always going to be a challenge. With a tight turnaround and little guidance due to a turbulent few weeks of travel, even more so. Tam really surprised us by delivering on time and above expectations. We are delighted and the guide has now been translated into three languages.

Arend Roos, Project manager CURA-B at Economische Impuls Zeeland

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, Head of Space at The Knowledge Transfer Network

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.

Paul Iliffe, Managing Director, The Exotic Teapot

I needed to raise the profile locally so decided to invest in a Cambridge PR campaign. 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 consultant, 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 an amazing PR professional. She is truly dedicated and passionate, providing plenty of feedback and she is really willing to push your brands forward. Many thanks, I would recommend her to everyone !

Eric Delloye, General Manager, Lucimed

I put together an online web development course and Tam wrote the the course description, video script and website. The course has a conversion (to email list) rate of over 90% - almost unbelievable! The course had over 2000 signups and 70 reviews in the first week, with very little effort on my part. Several people specifically mentioned the inspiring course description as a major reason why they signed up.
