“Brunswick supports the Foundation for three reasons: it’s a very effective way of encouraging a more diverse group of talented young graduates into the communications world; it benefits Brunswick; and you should practise what you preach. Brunswick has been supporting the courses since 2008. About fifteen Brunswick people have been involved in training and managing each course, which provides opportunities for younger members of the firm to develop their mentoring and management skills”
Simon Sporborg, UK Managing Partner, Brunswick

“Having followed the considerable progress of the Taylor Bennett Foundation from afar in recent years, it is wonderful to now be developing plans to partner with them in 2015. Both the course content and the calibre of their graduates are exceptional.

“I’ve been working in the political, media and communications industry for nearly 20 years. While I am proud of the work we do, I am bitterly disappointed at the lack of diversity in the profession. We are indebted to Heather McGregor for her vision and her generosity, and to the team at the Taylor Bennett Foundation for the role they are playing in giving young BAME professionals a foot on the ladder”

To discuss hosting a visit for Taylor Bennett Foundation trainees contact sarah@taylorbennettfoundation.org

“We have loved hosting the Taylor Bennett Foundation trainees at our theatres at Stratford-upon-Avon. They have always been smart, enthusiastic and eager to find out about arts PR. We have enjoyed talking with them very much and have learnt a great deal from them too. It has been a really good experience for us and their thoughts and ideas are already finding their way into our own equalities and diversity planning”
Liz Thompson, Director of Communications, Royal Shakespeare Company
