Today we’re speaking with ocean writer and PR freelancer Melissa Hobson.
Mel is passionate about communicating how we can all make a difference for the marine environment, our planet and people’s lives.
She’s a certified scuba diver and has worked in PR for over a decade – at first outside of conservation and then more recently turning her considerable talents towards helping wildlife to flourish.
During our chat we talk about her work in PR and writing and she shares tips on how to be a freelancer in conservation, win clients and craft messages that work.
We also discuss her squiggly career to date, and how we switched into wildlife conservation.
Finally Mel shares her advice for people who might be wishing to work in conservation too.
It’s a wide-ranging, engaging and fun discussion.
