Former BAE Systems Barrow communications officers' venture takes first steps

FOR some, motherhood is an all-consuming role.


But for 32-year-old Rachel Drinkwater, it’s provided a step towards following her ambitions of setting up her own PR company.

Following the birth of her son Stephen, Mrs Drinkwater left her role as a communications officer at BAE Systems in Barrow and decided to set up her own company, Copipop PR.

Living with her husband Fraser in Ulverston, Mrs Drinkwater is hoping to build on her past experience to help businesses and individuals across South Cumbria to maximise their potential.

With experience working for Microsoft, motorsport teams and the Environment Agency, Mrs Drinkwater has tackled everything from internal communications to crisis management.

She said: “With Copipop I’m trying to combine being a mum with my own business.

“I’ve thought about freelancing for years and since having my little boy, Stephen, it seemed like the right time to do it.”

Along with her PR work, Mrs Drinkwater has been using her linguistic skills to help jobseekers rewrite their CVs.

While her first clients include a local newspaper in the south of England, Mrs Drinkwater’s previous experience means she can help businesses and individuals get the best from the media.

She added: “I can do everything from auditing what clients are already doing to crisis management, I can provide companies with a full service.

“I said I wanted to get up and running before my son was one and I think I have just about managed it!”
