Christine Allen is an award-winning editorial writer and influential campaign journalist. She has worked in media for over 14 years, in Ireland and NZ and is the former chief reporter and business editor of the Northern Advocate newspaper in Whangarei.

I’ve written over 10,000 stories throughout my career and have had an estimated 160,000 press releases sent to me.

But enough about me!

I’m just chomping at the bit to hear about you and your business!

I help business owners get in front of a media audience and boost their profile through positive media exposure.

Journalists love a good yarn and most businesses are bursting with stories.
If you want to work with me, I offer a free consultation where you get to tell me more about your business.

If you’re fed up with being invisible in the marketplace and need to grow your business, get in touch.

What does Solas mean?

 Solas: The Irish word for light; enlightenment; disclosure; comfort.


Earned media needs to be part of your marketing strategy.  It’s an affordable option with a powerful impact. And yet, so many companies fail to consider earned media in their plans.

Free publicity is possible when you give the media what they want – great stories!

Solas Media Solutions helps business owners and leaders bag heaps of positive media exposure. I work with influencers and thought-leaders, campaigners, marketers, small business owners and start-up founders.
