MEET THE TEAM

Lara Ballard

What I have done?

The communications industry has always intrigued me and after my first few internships I was instantly driven to achieve a degree in Public Relations at Bournemouth University. After graduating, my career path begun in the press office of the UK’s most notorious department store Harrods, although I was soon steered off-piste with the opportunity to become a Personal Assistant for Dame Joan Collins, a position I enjoyed for three years. As a PA travelling the world, I was motivated to continue my exploration whilst also regaining my passion for PR. I joined a distinguished luxury travel PR agency based in Mayfair where I grew and developed my skills as a PR professional leading me to the position I hold now at Hills Balfour. A fairy tale ending.
