Hi there, I'm Claire McGill. I am a writer and freelance PR - and I love communicating and communications. Based in Cheltenham, but working for clients across the UK and abroad, I believe communications is a truly powerful tool that can be used in a truthful and positive way. My job in PR is to see potential in everything and try to get you the best results possible. Simply, I am motivated by honest and ethical goals, and I seek to shape my PR around providing people, businesses, and charities with brilliant PR output to raise awareness of them and their product or service, share their messages, innovations, creativity, skills, and missions. My PR is accountable, authentic and visible.

With over 20 years in the PR and communications world, plus a wealth of knowledge from travelling and writing, I've come to the conclusion that communications is one of the great things that can bind us and help us, if used in the right way, or undo us, if used in the wrong way. My aim is to nurture and be responsive to your values, with honest and competent advocacy, support, and full integrity. I'm all about sincere and inspiring collaborations focused on positive, intelligent outcomes, with a large dollop of fun and laughter thrown in. And maybe a spot of lunch......



As a PR professional I have the knowledge, skills and contacts to strategically communicate with the public and media. As well as issuing press releases for you, working on features, developing editorial, and writing copy, I can manage your social media, increase brand awareness, pitch stories, drive forward campaigns, and generate proactive PR. I'm also skilled in managing critical situations and protecting clients’ public image and reputation. And I'm passionate about what I do, so everything is done with a huge amount of positivity and joy!
I can help you create and maintain a good reputation, develop your profile, and work with you towards your goals of success. That's the beauty of PR with Garfunkel Communications.

I'm full of ideas, and you're sure to have your own too. I believe in relationships and collaboration. I've never regretted things I've done, only opportunities I haven't taken, so with this philosophy, we can embark on bringing all our ideas together, and I will make sure they get actioned in the most successful way possible to create wonderful PR.


Steve Jobs said this: 'Creativity is just connecting things.' My skill is to connect the dots between you and your business and the outside world, to share your message, and to bring about positive change.

I'm a big fan of creativity - looking at things a different way, thinking how we can use this, connect that, reflect on things, work with these people.  'Passion is one great force that unleashes creativity, because if you're passionate about something, then you're more willing to take risks.' said the great Yo Ma Ma. I'm right there on that creative journey for you, if you're willing too!


Inspiration comes from all places and all people. In creating great, authentic PR we will find that inspiration together and stick with it and it will work as our strength. You can then inspire other people with your message and that's why I'm working in PR. My role is to inspire you to inspire other people.

The PR  and communications style that I like to work with is about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire those around you - customers, staff, the media, the public - anyone. We'll get them to listen by having inspiring messages led by inspiring PR.

'Next to doing the right thing, the most important thing is letting people know you are doing the right thing.' John D Rockerfeller
