Powell and Barns Media founder, Marceline Powell was born in Nottingham, East Midlands. After graduating with Honours from Nottingham Trent University in the Humanities, Marceline completed post grad certificates from Nottingham Business School in Marketing and project management respectively. After several years living and working in Greater London, she now resides near the Kent coast.
In 2007, Marceline set up the first licensed community radio station and media training platform in Nottinghamshire. The platform aims to increase diversification in media and supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, and graduates to work together and gain work experience and training in broadcast media. Several trainees and volunteers have gone on to work for mainstream media channels in radio and television, including BBC and Sky.
Marceline enjoyed many comms roles, and later worked in marketing and media consultant roles for many years, working in the public sector and later for regional newspapers and magazines, gaining specialist experience across business development, events, media comms and targeted campaigns.
In 2018 Marceline launched Marketing and PR Consultancy Powell and Barns Media which specialises in targeted digital campaigns and offline content creation. Campaigns include strategic planning, content creation, marketing & PR management, website creation / online branding, Digital & Social Media Campaigns, awareness / engagement campaigns, event management and internal communications.
Powell and Barns Media has won two national awards for targeted campaigns, including National Crime Beat Award 2021 for best awareness campaign and a Lord Lieutenant Award for services to the voluntary sector, and in 2022 Marceline was nominated for a National Black Talent Award.
In 2020, Marceline was included in the Nottingham University Media Pioneers Archive: In Safe Hands - The Voices of Black Britain, an online exhibition and audio documentary series that recognises and celebrates Black pioneers in British broadcasting since the 1920s.
