Hills Balfour is the pre-eminent  travel and tourism PR agency in the UK without a single, tiny flicker of a shadow of a doubt. They have the best clients, the best staff and - most importantly - the best ideas.

In the five years I have worked with them, I have found their grasp of what makes a good story to be impeccable. Many of the very best stories - travel or otherwise - I have been involved in, either writing or commissioning - or even just reading - have been Hills Balfour productions.

There is a reassuring stamp of class about everything the company does and I would not hesitate for a single second in wholeheartedly recommending them to anybody and everybody looking for representation in this field.
There's actually a semi-official Hills Balfour appreciation society among London's travel writing fraternity. It's called everybody.

What I have done…
After graduating and a brief stint in a local council, I spent some time travelling around the world across 6 continents, which made me realise I wanted to pursue a career in the travel industry.  On my return I spent over four years working for Trailfinders across the general sales, bespoke touring and product departments.
