Hi, I’m Mark, founder and director of Mark Smith Media Consultants. I’m a Member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations and have over 16 years of experience in health, beauty and lifestyle PR.



Supported by a team of hand-picked consultants, I work in partnership with your business, consulting on PR, media strategy, brand positioning, social media and marketing.

With strong media relations and an established, reliable and ever-growing contacts book we work to deliver exceptional results in print, broadcast and online media.


After completing a law degree in Australia I moved to the UK in 1996, and worked as Manager of Screenface, opening the second branch of the business in Covent Garden in 1997.

Retraining in PR in 1999 I quickly rose to Account Director overseeing all aspects of client accounts. I also lectured in PR and Marketing at Westminster Adult Education, contributed spa and grooming features to various magazines and wrote Henna Body Art, published by Haldane and Mason.

I launched Mark Smith Media in 2012 as a freelance consultant offering personalised PR campaigns for beauty and health clients. Since then I have hand-picked a small group of consultants who work alongside me delivering excellent results in both print and online media raising the profile of clients in the consumer and business press.
