THE SCOOP ON OUR FOUNDER

Where the Passion Begins

Gail Sham, founder of Scoop Communications, is a dynamic Communications and Public Relations consultant with over 17 years of experience in the industry.

 

After completing a BA Corporate Communications Honours Degree (Cum Laude), Gail spent nine years at Magna Carta Public Relations (Voted Agency of the Year seven years in succession during her tenure), working on numerous blue-chip clients across a range of both bussiness-to-business and business-to-consumer clients.

 

She then moved to KFC (Yum Restaurants International) where she spearheaded the inception of their communications team. Here she looked after the promotion and protection of the KFC brand in South Africa driving KFC’s external communications portfolio, also leading the KFC Add Hope CSR initiative and the KFC Mini Cricket sponsorship portfolio.

 

Gail is a creative and strong storyteller. Her years of media relations experience have culminated in her thorough understanding of the media landscape and what makes them tick! Gail has a deep and heartfelt passion for Corporate Social Investment and developing brands with meaningful purpose.

 

Leaving the corporate world in 2017, Gail followed her dream and took the bold move of starting her own PR Consultancy.

 

Scoop Communications was born... and she hasn't looked back since!
