Liz Lean PR – more than just public relations

Meet The Team

Liz Willingham

Liz Willingham

Liz Willingham, formerly Lean, is our leader and MD. She started the business 20 years ago, long before Sandbanks became synonymous with footballers and playboy millionaires. (Funny how we never meet any!) Liz is a maelstrom within a whirlwind inside a hurricane. Her energy is inspiring and she has the best ‘little black book’ of contacts ever.

Carol Middleton

Carol Middleton

Carol has been with Liz for ten years. Utterly unflappable – probably because she likes nothing better than snowboarding down a mountain or wakeboarding behind a speedboat in her spare time – Carol is highly respected in the business community. The ultimate PR professional, she makes it all look so easy.

Lisa Barry

Lisa Barry

Lisa B, our second Lisa in the team, is an account manager. She loves horses almost as much as she loves her clients. Almost.

Louise Williams

Louise Williams

Louise is one of our account managers. In 2008 Louise graduated with a BA (Hons) in Journalism from Southampton Solent University and has been working in communications based roles ever since.

We think Louise has biggest smile ever, and the biggest smiley eyes too!

Ellie Cowley

Ellie Cowley

Ellie is an extremely likeable lady, her personality is totally infectious (she is slightly mad too!)

‘Drama’ is Ellie’s middle name. She loves the theatre and is on the committee for Equity’s Dorset Branch. She also enjoys creative writing, including play writing and children’s stories – she’s even working on her very own novel.

Beth Kendall

Beth Kendall

Beth joined the LLPR team in January and is one of our account managers. She is extremely creative and loves to travel. Beth told us that her favourite things are: yoga, the smell of new books, cooking, the great outdoors and getting lost in big cities.

Lisa Illingworth

Lisa Illingworth

Lovely Lisa is one of our account managers. She’s no ordinary account manager though, she’s a brilliant PR consultant. Eternally jolly, we’ve never seen her frown. The love of Lisa’s life is her beautiful little cockapoo named Badger- we all love him too.

Katie Damiani

Katie Damiani

Katie is the LLPR office manager. She loves being organised, so this job suits her pretty much down to a tee. Katie loves cats. She has three of her own and would have more if her husband would allow it.

Sally Windsor

Sally Windsor

After a long career in PR and marketing, Sally now uses that experience to provide our clients with a comprehensive ‘crisis management’ service.  Carefully structured to meet the individual needs of each business, it ensures our clients won’t get caught out when life doesn’t run as smoothly as it should.
