Born and raised in Surrey, Gabrielle studied in Bristol before moving to London in 2015. Before she started work in PR she worked for her friend's start-up food truck, which has since gone on to open two restaurants in Bristol.

Gabrielle has almost 3 years experience in food and beverage PR, garnering experience in everything from strategy planning with global corporations to nurturing fresh start-ups. A foodie from the get-go, she is always keen to try the next trend or newest opening, and so it's only right that she's found her feet in the restaurant side of PR.

In her spare time, Gabrielle can be found hanging out with office dog/part-time best friend Jeff, or sniffing out the next best place for ramen in London.

HEAD OF DIGITAL

WhatsApp Image 2018-09-14 at 15.53.55.jpeg

Fleur started out on the career ladder as a copywriter for a fashion catalogue (remember those?). As traditional marketing naturally evolved into digital, Fleur followed it on its path, turning her passion for social media in its early days into a profession.

She now has well over a decade of professional experience producing effective copy for print and digital media and divides her time between copywriting, social media/community management and digital content creation. Specialising in social media management for restaurants, bars and events, she's not bad with a camera either. When not working (if you ever really get a day off with social), she can be found at heavy metal gigs, wrestling shows, vintage events or at home in East London with the cats.
