Congratulations to Tom Hunt and Laura Gale (now Hunt!!) – who met at Wildwood six years ago – and who enjoyed a wonderful wedding this weekend. Even though they’ve both gone on to develop careers elsewhere, we still keep in touch and it is lovely to see their love flourish.
We are delighted to announce that Melissa Baker has been promoted to Account Manager at Wildwood PR.
Since starting Wildwood in 2017, Melissa has continued to grow and excel in her role. She joined Wildwood fresh from internships in fashion and art gallery PR and, over the last two years, has become an invaluable member of the AWE, CEDIA, Meridian, ISE and BIID teams.
Shereen Russell, Senior Account Director at Wildwood PR, comments, “I work closely with Melissa on a number of accounts and this promotion is recognition of the hard work and commitment she puts into everything she does, she is always willing to go the extra mile for clients. I am thrilled for her — it is truly deserved.”

On Friday 30th November, more than 215 PR professionals gathered at Bristol’s Marriott Hotel for the CIPR South of England and Channel Islands PRide Awards – a celebration of the region’s annual public relations success stories. The Wildwood team was delighted to be there to celebrate with our colleagues in the industry, after being nominated for awards in two categories; Best Publication and Outstanding Young Communicator.
The Wildwood team has recently worked with media intelligence and social monitoring company Meltwater to develop a webinar on competitor benchmarking and its importance.
We were delighted to be asked to present a webinar by the Meltwater team as it gave us the opportunity to explain the benefits of monitoring and analysing competitor data. Within the webinar we provided a brief introduction into competitive intelligence, outlined why it is important and more importantly how it can be done.

Meridian Audio, the pioneers of high resolution audio, hosted a ‘Distributed by Meridian Day’ at its UK headquarters in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire on the 28th of June, and I was lucky enough to be invited to experience the event first-hand. Still being fairly new to the Wildwood team, this was my first time visiting Meridian HQ and meeting the Meridian team. I was excited to take part in the workshop whilst simultaneously gaining a further understanding of Meridian.
