Ian Monk is a widely respected media professional, wielding influence with discretion on behalf of clients to whom control of reputation and management of profile are crucial.
Working with MP’s, businessmen, sports stars and brands he harnesses the synergies of new and traditional media to build, enhance and protect profile and reputation by creating and directing bespoke media strategies which shape and control perceptions.
He has worked as a high level PR professional for 15 years delivering aggressive, creative and successful outcomes for clients and brands requiring positive publicity, crisis management, issues management or redress from the media.

He says: “The power of the media to make or break reputation is absolute and, although not always wielded responsibly, is susceptible to persuasive influence.”
