About Derek Harris
Hello – thanks for visiting. I’m Derek Harris. I have a talent for understanding what’s complex and making it accessible. I enjoy conceiving, writing and telling newsworthy business stories. I’ve been an independent PR professional since 2002 and still get a kick out of winning great press coverage for clients!
Before setting up independently as 'Harris Communications', I was an IT-sector account director with a pan-European PR agency. Before that, I ran marketing communications for a mid-sized software company (having earlier spent a few short years selling IT consulting services).
I’m a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and hold a degree in business administration. I speak conversational German.
