If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.

Alison Palmer

Tenacious contact maker

If you’re newly acquainted with Ridgemount, chances are that you will have spoken to Ali: our in-house befriender of organisations who could use great PR support.

Ali’s greatest characteristic is a cheery inability to take no for an answer. Her focus is to make sure Ridgemount continues to promote itself and make new friends who may just turn into business contacts.

Ali is also possibly the busiest member of the Ridgemount team: when not working for us she volunteers at a local foodbank, runs a music business for pre-school children and co-founded an organisation providing book clubs for schools. Combine that with ownership of the world’s most unruly dog and you can see why she’s generally moving quite quickly.
