Verity Blake

Verity Blake

Managing Director

Verity’s love of media started when auditioning as a BBC weather girl many, many years ago. Unfortunately for her, she forgot her glasses and so couldn’t read the autocue very well so turned her attention to the world of PR.

She’s since built her reputation as a communications specialist over 20 years, creating communications and digital strategies for some of the most exciting B2B and B2C brands worldwide including Ericsson, Norton security, 3Mobile, 3M, Ovo Energy, First Utility, AXA PPP, BusinessLink and Groundwork UK.

She’s particularly skilled in legal, finance, technology, energy and the HR/ Learning and Development sectors and has built HeadOn PR to become well recognised as ‘the ideas people’ – a creative PR consultancy that creates different opportunities that go above and beyond expectations. Verity has also worked client side as well as in agency, so understands the demands of her clients and builds strategies that deliver against KPIs, supporting bottom line results.
