WHO IS BILL HUNT?
Someone who never writes about himself in the third person. I’ve spent 25 years working in PR, nine in agency and the remainder working as a freelance PR consultant. Working primarily on global brands, my agency life includes Cohn & Wolfe, Hill & Knowlton, Porter Novelli and Havas PR.
My early days were spent primarily on consumer and youth accounts during which time I co-founded BL Alternative, Biss Lancaster’s specialist youth marketing division. In later years I worked on more issues based, government and technology business, including co-founding Hill & Knowlton’s consumer technology group in 1999.
When I left H&K I concentrated on building my role as creative director, firstly for Village PR, then Catalysis, and then as digital and creative director for HAVAS PR. I was responsible for devising strategies, churning out ideas, staff and client training, running brainstorms and looking after our consumer business.
Industry awards include PRWeek Best Promotional Campaign for Bertie goes to Sotheby’s, a PRCA commendation for Re-Turn Bertie, and a ‘PR in Food Marketing’ Bronze award from Marketing magazine for a cheeky tethering of a 155 ft tall hot air balloon in front of the TV cameras at the London Marathon. The Bridget Jones Diary SMS and FHM’s High Street Honeys campaigns were both finalists for PRWeek Awards.
The name ‘TopDog’ came about as a homage to my faithful, forever happy English Bull Terrier Tilly, who, when she’s not sleeping or playing with a mangled old rope, provides a constant distraction from anything constructive I might dare to attempt.
I now work as a self-employed consultant specialising in online PR, designing and writing websites, dabbling in guerrilla marketing and managing social media for a range of clients.
