Venti Comms is a new PR, content and communications consultancy run by former journalist and PR Director, Lara Page. Find out a little more about Lara here…
Lara is a highly experienced journalist and PR professional who has worked in the media and marketing fields for over 15 years.
As a journalist, she has written for a diverse range of consumer media, from Channel 4’s 10 Years Younger and 4Talent websites to glossy regional lifestyle magazines. She also spent three years as an Online Features Journalist for the Express & Star and the Shropshire Star, two of the largest regional newspapers in the UK, and pioneered their presence on social media.
Crossing naturally into PR, Lara has supported a plethora of brands and names including Microsoft, HSBC Corporate, Beaverbrooks, Marshall Amplification, Handelsbanken, Kuoni, RM Education, the Feathers Hotel Group and Sir Stirling Moss, as well as a diverse portfolio of trade and consumer-focussed SME clients.
Her wider marketing experience includes both agency and in-house roles, working on major copywriting projects, digital marketing campaigns, SEO-led content creation and everything in between!
Lara brings together a wholesome respect for the art of storytelling and a solid understanding of grammar and syntax – combined with a deep understanding of the media agenda and a knack for finding the most compelling angles – to craft exceptional content for every channel.
Here at Venti, Lara works very happily from her kitchen table in a rural corner of Shrewsbury, bringing in a wider network of Venti collaborators such as photographers, videographers, designers and other specialists to support clients whenever required.
Outside of the ‘office’, she can usually be found swimming in lakes, boating around the coast of North Wales, walking in Snowdonia, putting together gift boxes for friends and family, or – on a rainy day – indulging her love of 80s movies with a glass of pudding wine and a block of marzipan!
