Alison Bell

Writer, runner, project manager


I am a talented PR and communications project manager, with 10 years' agency experience and a particular knack for writing.

As an English native speaker with excellent French and German skills, I have worked on several international projects and campaigns with a special focus on clients in the political and tech sectors. And I write a regular section on Berlin's startup scene for a local city magazine.

Always sure to go the extra mile, I'm also a very keen marathon runner.

Based in Berlin.

A marathon ambition

I have a goal in life: 80 cities, 80 marathons. A Phileas Fogg-esque voyage around the world in 80 races. The personal challenge started in Paris in 2009, and since then I've run 10 more marathons in cities across Europe. In February 2017 I took my first steps in Asia, completing the Tokyo marathon. Next stop: tbc.
