About the instructor
Asha Clearwater of Turquoise Tiger is an NCTJ* qualified journalist who has been creating engaging content for more than 30 years. She’s been a news reporter, features editor and arts editor, as well as editing a number of national business magazines.
Today, Asha divides her time between coaching SMEs on the art of great storytelling to promote their products and services and producing written and digital content for her varied PR clients.
Asha’s experience spans writing for local and regional press, breaking national news stories and even launching the world’s first interactive magazine for the ‘Twitterverse’, which drew her numerous accolades and awards nods as well as a bulging celebrity contacts book and a testimonial from none other than Stephen Fry.
She has also managed PR, publicity and social media for national charities, a world champion sports star, a best selling author, a national veterinary chain and pretty much everything in between.
Asha has been running her own PR, content coaching and consultancy business for more than 15 years.
She occasionally freelances as a writer for national magazines, and she’s even behind some of the information boards you’ll find strolling through Woodland Trust forests. Pick up an information leaflet for a business or tourist attraction and you might even find she penned that too!
In short, what Asha doesn’t know about PR, content creation, storytelling and journalism ain’t worth knowing!
