Antonia Brickell - Head of Communications
"I joined Magpas at the end of 2011 and have never looked back! The inspirational atmosphere and team ethos, matches no other organisation I have ever worked with. It is an absolute privilege to be part of the Magpas family of lifesavers. My job is to head the communications, PR and corporate partnership side of Magpas Helimedix, with a focus on immediately increasing the charity profile and fundraising support. I work alongside our former patients and the rest of the Magpas team, to create and facilitate local, regional and national media opportunities. I also promote the Magpas service to individuals and businesses, based regionally and across the UK, whilst highlighting key partnership and sponsorship working. I’m also heavily involved in event organisation, mainly with corporate supporters.
Before coming on board at Magpas, I spent 17 years working as a BBC Broadcast Journalist and radio presenter with the BBC and commercial radio. I was also a presenter mentor for the BBC College of Journalism, a media trainer, a voice-over artist and I worked for a London based direct marketing agency."
