Director’s Doctorate Delight
City PR firm, Bridge PR & Media Services has a new doctor in the house as managing director, Denise Taylor, is awarded a PhD degree by Nottingham University for her work in international wildlife conservation.
Dr Taylor has devoted much of her spare time in understanding the political, social and cultural problems affecting wolf populations around the world, many of which continued to be threatened by on-going persecution.
Over the years, she has collaborated with many of the world’s leading experts in wolf conservation and worked closely with the UK Wolf Conservation Trust, near Reading. Much of her understanding and unique insight has also been gained from the development of a Large Carnivore Education Centre in Bulgaria that Dr Taylor has helped to support by raising over £200,000 in funding since 2005.
A well known PR figure in the Coventry area, Dr Taylor completed her first degree in Business Administration in 1995, and has worked as a management consultant in both the private and public sector with her main focus being on marketing. She has managed to combine both her commercial and conservation roles successfully, and said: “Anyone who knows me through business, also knows how passionate I am about wildlife conservation and the environment. When I’m not marketing and promoting our clients, I’m usually trying to raise funding for environmental education projects.”
She added: “Completing the doctorate part-time has taken me a while, but the results and everything I’ve learned along the way have made the effort very worthwhile. My examiners from Nottingham and Roehampton Universities are now working closely with me on how my achievements can be applied to other areas of conservation, and to adult education in general.”
Denise’s co-director at Bridge PR, Gary Lillistone commented: “We are all very excited for Denise. She fully deserves the recognition and she’s done it the hard way by juggling several strands of her life. As well as completing her research she has also been running two businesses including Eduction4Conservation, a not-for-profit organisation she set up in 2003, as well as being a single parent.”
Dr Taylor is now waiting to hear from Nottingham University to confirm the date when she will officially be honoured with the presentation of her PhD degree.
