Adam Howlett

Adam is our Media Relations Lead with more than a decade’s experience working as a regional and national newspaper journalist.

He has interviewed numerous Prime Ministers and high-profile celebrities, and now plays a leading role in our editorial team – editing copy to the highest standard and identifying the best angles for our clients.

He works on a range of accounts from varying sectors and is often the first port of call for those looking to get their name in the papers – or to keep them out of them through strong crisis communications.

He holds the journalism gold standard, with 100wpm shorthand and an in-depth knowledge of media law, with much of his career spent reporting from the court room.

That experience is invaluable to our clients, with Adam and the other former journalists in our team holding regular media training sessions for those looking for interview support.

When it comes to press releases, newspapers regularly fight over being the first to publish his content – and routinely call him on the hunt for a good news story.

Adam has written tens of thousands of stories and hundreds of front pages across his career – from breaking news to court cases, inquests to council meetings and features to community issues.

He comes from a strong media background, with his father Ivan being instrumental in the establishment of BBC Radio Suffolk before working as a theatre writer for the East Anglian Daily Times.

Keen to follow in his father’s footsteps, Adam began his career as a reporter at a national news agency in Birmingham, writing stories for the tabloids to the tightest of deadlines.

He later returned to Suffolk to work for the Bury Free Press, where he qualified as a senior journalist, before moving to the East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star.

On the weekends, you can regularly find Adam at local drum and bass gigs, following the Tractor Boys, or performing with his funk band Pouch.

He’s also headlined gigs at Norwich Arts Centre and twice performed at Latitude Festival – but his real dream is to perform at Portman Road!
