She worked across a number of marketing and design roles in the UK, Sydney and Melbourne before setting up her PR agency, Handle Communications, in 2003. Jules has worked with numerous small and micro businesses and start-ups since then, helping them to get media coverage, and then she realised that although many people couldn't afford to hire a PR agency, they had great stories to tell and the media would be excited to hear from them. So, in the aftermath of the GFC, she decided to set up Handle Your Own PR. Jules works hard to show people that doing PR is a skill that can be learned. She believes wholeheartedly that it is the best choice for small businesses and start-ups who want to create awareness and get free media coverage for their business.
