Introducing PR and Marketing Assistant Lisa Foote


Born and bred in Falmouth, Lisa loves the laid-back lifestyle of her hometown in Cornwall. With a talent for writing, she moved away from home at 19 to study Creative and Media Writing at the University of Portsmouth. During her degree she moved to London for a year to intern as an Editorial Assistant at Debenhams, where she found her passion for marketing and blogging. As well as writing, she loves photography and animals – especially cats!

After experiencing the fast-paced lifestyle in bigger cities, Lisa couldn’t wait to move back home to the south west. Now living on the beautiful Lizard peninsula, she says that returning to the Cornish coast is a dream. She joined The Greenbank team straight after her final year at university as our PR and Marketing Assistant.

Lisa is based at The Greenbank Hotel in Falmouth but also works for our sister hotel, The Alverton in Truro. She loves utilising her creative writing skills to produce inspiring content for both hotels.

What is your favourite part about the job?

As PR and Marketing Assistant, every day is different and the teams at both hotels are so lovely. I love writing creative content for our blog and shouting about all that Cornwall has to offer. It’s such a beautiful part of the world.

What one activity/attraction/place would you recommend to guests as a must-see?

One of my favourite places in the world is St Ives. On a summer’s day it’s the perfect destination to enjoy a Cornish pasty or ice-cream and wander around the charming streets bursting with local gift shops and boutiques. Just make sure you guard your food with caution as the seagulls are renowned for swooping on unsuspecting visitors!

Can you describe Cornwall in five words?

Community, charismatic, stunning, coastal, home.
