Founder & Managing Director
With an impressive PR & marketing background, Layla set up Aspire in 2010. Prior to this she worked as Sports Agent at Nuff Respect and Marketing Manager for Quintus Events and motive8. She has a lifelong passion for fitness and studied Sports Science at Exeter University. When not working she cycles, runs and explores the great outdoors, living the dream in her VW campervan with faithful dog by her side.
Kate has more than 18 years’ experience in PR and communications and is a keen cyclist. During her time at Aspire, she has survived Club Peloton’s Cycle to MIPIM, pedElle and Cycle to MAPIC all in one year and presented on stage to 900 people for former client X-POLE (providing moral support to their Marketing Manager who hated it more than she did!). Outside work, Kate prefers two wheels to two feet, exploring the countryside on her bike with an occasional foray into running.
Becky has over 20 years’ experience in marketing and communications, working in the interior design, architectural, hospitality and event industries. Becky has managed marketing teams, delivered strategic plans and launched events and exhibitions in both domestic and global markets. Away from work she likes to keep active and can be found on a football or rugby side-line most weekends.
Tom spent the last 5 years of his working life following the snow and enjoying winter seasons around the world. Last May, he moved home from France, deciding to take a new professional direction. Over the last year, he has worked his way through various content and social media roles until finally stumbling upon, and completing our very own Aspire internship. Now, he manages the Aspire community and works across both Aspire’s marketing and PR departments. He is a qualified ski instructor and a keen outdoorsman, with passions in skiing, climbing, hiking and mountain biking (to name a few).
Nicole specialises in Creative Strategy and Digital Lifestyle at Aspire.
Passionate about data driven planning and business driven measurement, Nicole has extensive experience turning start-ups into category leaders as well as re-energising communications for blue-chip brands.
A qualified personal trainer she's busy keeping others fit as well as running around after an energetic pre-schooler.
Warren has over 20 years of creative experience working within agencies, large and small, creating and designing for everyone from small start-up companies to some of the world’s best-known brands.
He works with Aspire on a variety of projects and when he's not scribbling on a drawing pad or sitting at his Mac, he’ll be climbing, running, riding or skateboarding around Bushy Park. Less as sporting pursuits, but more entertaining his 4-year old daughter - either way he’s still knackered afterwards!
Media Relations Lead
Kate has worked in PR for over ten years, specialising in endurance sports and fitness. She is a keen time trial cyclist and triathlete, racing for the competitive Drag2Zero ladies team. Kate’s proudest sporting achievement is riding 50 miles in 1 hour 45 minutes (and 36 seconds), the second-fastest British ladies result in history.
Kate keeps the Aspire finances in order and has over 15 years experience working in accounts departments in varying industries.
She has studied with the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers and is now taking on the additional challenge of an accountancy diploma, AAT. Kate loves nothing more than a pile of receipts to put in order and a bank account to reconcile.
When she’s not busy sorting the numbers she’s organising her husband, 2 children and her Cocker Spaniel. She loves walking her dog Poppy in nearby Bushy Park and can be seen speeding through the streets of Hampton Hill on her trusty bicycle.
Bunty joined Aspire in 2014 and brings with her a varied skill set from emptying the office bins to taking mental notes in client meetings. She specialises in promoting a calm working environment and making people laugh.
She enjoys all types of food, running in Bushy Park and above anything else chasing squirrels.
We are always on the look out for new interns. This is a very varied role where you will get involved in all aspects of our PR and marketing offering.
