WIKIPEDIA & wikitribune/supporting community powered knowledge and journalism

Wikipedia started in just 2001 with a small number of contributors and now has a community of over 70,000 contributors working on more than 47 million articles in 299 languages.  Helen worked with the Wikimedia Foundation and Oliver Global to run PR and communications related to Wikipedia, including the press for the launch of the transparency report with Channel 4 and BBC coverage, and the annual Wikimania conference - with hundreds of media stories including the front page running story of the monkey selfie.

Since working on Wikipedia, Helen has gone on to work closely with Jimmy Wales on his new project - Wikitribune - combatting fake news by building a community of journalists and volunteers to deliver a fact-based news platform. Helen launched the new project in the media and provides ongoing PR and strategic support.
