By Palompo PR | The Podcast
Welcome to Palompo PR, The podcast.
I’ve been working in PR for 16 years and one of the best parts of my job is hearing the stories from the clients that have built their brands from the bottom up.
This Podcast will be delving in to the professional and personal lives of some inspiring entrepreneurs.
I’ll be asking them what makes them tick at home and at work and everything in between.
This will be a totally uncensored, authentic and entirely relatable show about building business and juggling the work life balance.

Episode 1: Building a brand with a Pumpkin Patch
Today on the Palompo PR Podcast, I’m delving in to the life of Rebecca McEwen from Arnprior Farm – it's not a common career path but Rebecca gave up a career in TV and film to become known as Scotland's pumpkin queen. She trained as a props buyer and worked on productions such as Monarch of the Glen, River City and Peter Mullan's Neds. But when she married a farmer, she threw herself into making a success of her new life and set about making farming fun for her and her three children. Rebecca and her husband wanted to modernise the way things were done at Arnprior Farm and they started with the humble pumpkin seed back in 2015. Hear her story here…and check out Arnprior Farm www.arnpriorfarm.com
