About Us

Based in Corby, Northamptonshire, Ballyhoo PR was founded by Emma Speirs.

Emma has 12 years of PR and copywriting experience, working for advertising and PR agencies and in in-house PR departments at a number of companies. Emma has also edited various business to business magazines and managed the social media accounts of several firms.

After handling the PR activity for companies that included a leading national housebuilder, SATRA Technology Centre and Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce, Emma decided to set up Ballyhoo PR to offer small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) cost-effective PR and copywriting services that can help them to share their story and raise their profile.

The name Ballyhoo seemed to encapsulate the ethos of the business, which is to generate a buzz or publicise something. It is also the name of a fish!
