Welcome to AH! PR run by journalist, PR and author Andy Hirst who specialises in getting your message where it counts... in the media.

After many years in a senior editorial role in journalism he's ideally placed to know what newsdesks want and how press releases should be written to give them the very best chance of being published. His skill is quickly grasping what you want to say and then transforming it into news stories and features.

He's worked in the media in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, for many years and has excellent contacts across the region.

Andy also has several years experience in PR too, devising and writing blogs, websites, press releases and successfully applying for high profile awards for clients. He relishes working under pressure to tight deadlines.

He's totally flexible and can write you a one-off press release through to providing a daily, weekly or monthly service.

So if you have a story worth telling then contact Andy who will be delighted to give you an initial email or phone consultation for free to see if it is really worth telling.

Andy will make sure that every one of your PR pennies count. After all, he is from Yorkshire.

"I have worked alongside Andrew Hirst for a decade now, co-presenting an annual awards ceremony to recognise the bravery, commitment and talent of those around us.

"Each year at this major event he compiles the inspirational stories of those who are being honoured. The script is so clear and comprehensive I can sight read it on arrival at the venue and it gives a real insight into the people behind the achievements.

"Andy writes with empathy and humour and always delivers both the script on time and for the audience in terms of his performance on stage."
