Name: Angharad Welshangharad-welsh

Job role: Account Director

Place of birth: Newport, South Wales

Did you go to uni? Yes, I’m a Broadcast Journalism graduate from the University of Gloucestershire *cough* First Class Honours *cough*. It’s one of the few things I feel comfortable bragging about.

Favourite film? God, I love cinema so picking a favourite is really hard! My go-to is the Lord of the Rings trilogy – I’m a massive Tolkein nerd. But don’t talk to me about The Hobbit. I’m still disappointed.

Favourite site to waste time on? I am a prolific Buzzfeed quiz-taker – who doesn’t want to know how hipster their grandparents are or which Disney Prince I would marry? 

Why PR? I love storytelling and using great stories to build brands. Plus PR has the culture, creativity and pace that I crave in my work. Even after nearly a decade in the business, I still get a rush whenever a new piece of coverage hits! 

Tell us three interesting facts about you:

1) Angharad translates to ‘beloved / much-loved’ in English. My middle name is Sian which is ‘God’s greatest gift’. I think my parents were really, really pleased to have me!

2) I’m happiest when hill walking with my dog and fiancé. Any hill will do – so long as it has a great view and we have it all to ourselves.

3) I got my first tattoo when I was 16 and have spent the last 13 years trying to decide what my next one will be. Feel free to suggest something! 

Describe yourself in a few sentences: Sarcastic, witty with a classic type A personality. Rugby fan (obvs) and typically patriotic about Wales. I’m also one of those crazy dog parents and will talk about Max any chance I get. You have been warned… 

What are you most looking forward to doing here? Teaching the team to say Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, getting great results for clients and helping to build the agency into one of the best in the UK. I’m up to the challenge on all three counts!

Where can we find you online? I‘m most at home on Twitter @Welsh_PR If you love cute dog pictures (and who doesn’t?) then follow my Instagram – angharadwelsh.
