Opinion: My Best Hire

Matt Neale, joint MD of Golin Harris, on the 'outrageously brilliant' Lisa Collin.

'I hired Lisa in 2001, fresh from the Royal Opera House. It was immediately clear that she had her own PR Magic Flute. She joined as a senior exec and left the agency as associate director four years later.

'Lisa wowed clients running global product launches from New York to Berlin. She has the ability to work at lightening speed and juggle several projects with complete ease. Often PROs who are good at running global campaigns can't cut it at UK level - Lisa is equally at home pitching creative ideas to British brand managers as she is to global V-Ps.

'Lisa is currently taking a sabbatical but will be returning to the UK later this year. Headhunters form an orderly queue - that is, if I can't persuade her to work for me again.'

- Lisa Collin is currently travelling.
