Lucinda Dargavel

PR & Communications Manager

Growing up I was heavily integrated in the business community through my father’s role and have always enjoyed meeting people, looking for new connections and creating opportunities to work with new clients. I have also been competing in equestrian events since I was a child and I think that the competitive spirit this encourages carries over into my working life. I love spending time at trade shows and events promoting the work we do at PDR and sharing our successes through our blog and social media. The creative environment here makes it an inspiring place to work and being able to help the designers and researchers tell their stories as well as seeing potential clients connect with the right people really motivates me.
I started working in PR and marketing after finishing my degree in French and Spanish at Cardiff University. I also hold a distinction in International Business Marketing and prior to my appointment at PDR I was the Editor of several publications including Welsh Government’s Advances and Medilink UK’s UK Lifescience Industry Magazine with my work showcased globally. Since joining PDR it has been really nice to have the opportunity to use my languages again. We are working on more European projects all the time across both the research and commercial teams and it is satisfying to be able to welcome and converse with our clients and partners in their own language.
