PR, Marketing & Events Manager

Natalie Vizard, herself a Cordon Bleu trained cook, brings with her a passion for the food industry combined with her extensive experience as a PR and marketing professional.

She is tireless in her promotion of Exeter Cookery School as the ‘go-to’ cookery school in the South West. Having worked with Jim and Lucy in her role as account manager of a buzzing PR & Marketing agency, Natalie recruited herself such was her enthusiasm for Jim and Lucy’s vision and her faith in the future success of Exeter Cookery School.

As well as managing all the cookery school’s marketing and social media campaigns, she is busy liaising with food bloggers and journalists to arrange press reviews. In addition to cajoling the most delicious recipes out of Jim to share with members of the public, she ensures Jim is top of the list for guest appearances at all the local food and drink festivals and shows.

As a keen foodie herself, she has also played an instrumental role in developing new courses, and is working on extending the cookery school's network of organisations with which to collaborate.

In addition to working full time at the cookery school, Natalie is mum of two young children and supports the residents of Exeter’s Newtown and St Leonard’s ward through her role as an Exeter City Councillor.
