You don’t have to love the outdoors to work with us, but it does help! Our team includes:

Rebecca Lees:

Rebecca got hooked on the great outdoors at the age of eight – around the time she set her heart on becoming a journalist. She’s been doing her best to combine the two ever since, working on programmes such as BBC Wales’ Weatherman Walking and ITV’s Coast & Country and notching up four walking trails books. After several years as a staff reporter at the South Wales Echo, Rebecca worked as a freelance for many national titles before founding Chatterbox in 2016. Rumours that she chose our Taffs Well office solely for its view of Garth Mountain are completely founded.


Eve Powell:     

Eve is one of our canny wordsmiths, so words are her bag*. With a talent for cutting through the hyperbole (big word), she loves to get to the heart of the message and help our clients communicate in a clear, engaging and approachable way. Despite having lived and worked in the Big Smoke, Cardiff girl Eve now spends her days happily working as a freelance marketing consultant and copywriter, mostly to support her coffee habit in and around Roath.

*although actually, bags are also her bag. And shoes as well, come to that.

Andy North:

Andy’s our guy in the north – quite literally. Firmly ensconced on a Cumbrian sheep farm (no, he’s not a shepherd), he’s had a love of the Great Outdoors since he was route-marched around the Lake District as a teenager. Seamlessly changing career from primary school deputy head to grizzled outdoor man many years ago, he’s now a whizz in social media, as well as championing accessibility in the countryside with his wife, Debbie, alongside Julia Bradbury and The Outdoor Guide. Andy’s also a documentary photographer and finds nothing more relaxing than being lost on a hill. In the wind. And the rain. And the fog.

Lesley Ball, Chatterbox PR and Communications

Lesley Ball:

Lesley’s the lady who makes our life easier, taking care of our admin with aplomb. She keeps us on well-organised toes, managing databases and schedules and ensuring we never miss a deadline. When not taking the ‘busy’ out of business for her Ty Cae PA and Office Services clients, Lesley loves looking after her animals and enjoys long walks in the countryside… just one of the many reasons she fits in so well around here!
