Hello! I'm Amanda O'Shaughnessy - Communications Manager and Writer with six years of experience working across beauty, lifestyle and B2B. With a background in beauty and wellness, I’ve worked with the world’s leading beauty and retail brands, including SpaceNK, COTY, and Johnson & Johnson EMEA. My passion for the beauty industry led me to volunteer for industry organisation, The British Beauty Council, during which I wrote, interviewed and curated their owned channel content, and developed two of their most crucial insights reports, Diversity & Inclusion Report 2020 and Lessons from COVID-19.
In recent years, I have been driving PR and communications for world-renowned communications agency, M&C Saatchi TALK, having just supported in the development and launch of their new agency proposition, while leading on the management of their global independent communications network, SERMO Communications.
I’ve been described by bosses as an amazing self-starter and a positive force, consistently recognised by peers as someone who always comes through for their team. Millie Kendall, OBE described my contribution during the pandemic as “a great sounding board and an utter inspiration at such a troubling time for us all personally and professionally.” (See LinkedIn Recommendations).
I'm also a writer and content creator, contributing to female-led creative content publications Fearless She Wrote and Atta Girl and creative writers' hub, Writers’ Blokke. Author & Broadcaster, Elizabeth Day has described my writing as “insightful and cogent”.
