RandallFox is a small agency working for some big names.
We do this by working with a group of highly experienced and trusted associates.
When we set up RandallFox in 2008, we created a new business model; a collective of trusted freelance associates, each with their own specialist skill or area, coming together to work under the RandallFox brand.
Our approach means that we develop close working relationships with clients. There are no junior staff behind the scenes at RandallFox. The people who pitch for your project, work on your project. It also means that your budget buys a group of highly experienced professionals who, if charged at commercial agency rates, would be beyond the means of many of our third sector clients.
Selina specialises in working with communications teams to help them find new direction, motivation and focus.
She is passionate about creating strategic communications approaches that transform ways of working. Her approach is always tailored to the particular needs and culture of each client to ensure that what they get is real change rather than a report sitting on a shelf.
In house, she held senior comms posts in the arts, heritage and international development as well as building a new division at an award-winning PR agency. At RandallFox, she has worked with a range of clients including those in health, international development, environmental, academic and research sectors. She has written and delivered training programmes, guides and online toolkits to help spread uptake of good strategic communications approaches.
Susannah has specialised in resolving complex communication issues in the health, higher education, research and membership sectors.
She has board-level experience running large communications teams for the Wellcome Trust and the National Patient Safety Agency, overseeing organisational change, communications strategy and high-profile reports. She has also run successful campaigns for charities and the NHS, receiving two Chartered Institute of PR excellence awards for a campaign with doctors.
As a consultant, Susannah enjoys working with senior decision-makers and communications professionals to develop more focused and effective teams and strategies. She is a trustee for the British Society for Haematology, and an author of practical guides for applying communications approaches to improvement work.
