Sue Bradbury PR

Good communication is vital to building reputation and brand awareness and we’ve got the toolkit, experience and enthusiasm to ensure clients get it right. Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, famously said: “If I was down to the last dollar of my marketing budget I’d spend it on PR!” Why? Because he understands how vital it is to keep in the public eye, generating both interest and engagement.

We’re delighted to be supporting TEDx Truro with specialist public speaking coaching. With only a limited amount of time to create a lasting impression that truly will inspire, TEDx presentations are chosen carefully for their content and require a lot of preparation and practice. That is why they are so highly regarded and why we’re very proud to be involved.

Verity Westcott

I am a professional, freelance photographer with over 15 years of experience behind the lens and my roots are in the Cornish community. I use photographs to tell my stories, and believe this use of photography can connect us to the world. I specialise in commercial photography, using a reportage style. Weddings, portraiture and fashion photography are my passion.

For me TED is about discovering new things, and discovery is what I love most about my work, as no two projects are the same. I am delighted to be involved in the first TEDxTruro event to be held in my community and greatly look forward to capturing the moment in action.

In 2013 I relocated to Cornwall to extend my services and experience to one of the most exciting and fast growing business communities in the UK …… it may also have had something to do with the beautiful landscape, lovely people and awesome surf!

As a huge TED fan, I’m really excited to be involved in TEDxTruro. Designers are always looking for inspiration, for new and emerging technology and for ground breaking ideas – TED is a great forum for all of these and more.
