Tom Johnston Media

Journalist, business writer and PR consultant

Tom Johnston full

An experienced and well-connected journalist and public relations consultant,  I offer top quality editorial services to businesses, agencies and publications.

Having worked on both sides of the media fence – as a journalist and editor, and as a senior PR manager – I offer a unique understanding of the media.

My editorial experience spans national and regional newspapers, leading consumer magazines and in-house publications. Previous PR work includes stints in-house with global car brands and as a consultant working on everything from transport, utilities and theatre, to celebrities seeking closer relationships with the media.

As a business journalist (copywriter) I specialise in producing clear, crisp copy on almost any subject. Company owners often know what they want to say, but don’t have the time or inclination to sit down and put pen to paper. That’s where I come in. Armed with all the facts, I will provide a well-written press release, news story, report, speech or presentation.

A veteran of hundreds of product launches, shows, exhibitions, conferences, and industry dinners, I also offer expert event support, planning, logistics and hosting.

My contacts book contains a rich mix of journalists, agents, business leaders and celebrities, many of whom are personal friends.

Areas of expertise include:

  • Automotive
  • Construction
  • Entertainment & celebrity
  • Leisure industry
  • Public sector & utilities
  • Travel
