Sophie Drake

Account Director

Sophie has been with Story since the get-go, having been recruited by Amanda straight out of university who noticed her talent from the very beginning. Since then Sophie’s proved Amanda to be spot on.  She’s gone from strength to strength as a top strategist, copywriter, and digital specialist. Sophie is passionate about building strong client relationships, getting to know the brands she works with inside-out and becoming an expert on the finer points of their strategy – the devil is in the detail for Drake.


She has produced thought-provoking and highly creative communications on a regional and national level, with clients including law firm Mills & Reeve, executive search firm Berwick Partners and the Greater Birmingham & Solihull LEP. No story is too big for Sophie – she led the announcements for Birmingham’s bid for the Commonwealth Games and HS2’s Royal Assent.

Sophie’s former role in the Marketing and Comms team at Birmingham City University saw her deliver a collection of events, media relations and content for its award-winning 2016 clearing campaign.  She’s an expert leader and strategist – and not just for Story Comms. Sophie was appointed the UK’s first Director for Young People on the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership board. This means she has been tasked with galvanizing the city’s young people and, together with her place on Birmingham Live’s 30 under 30, confirms her as one of Brum’s best and brightest. We knew that anyway.

Sophie takes a break from her high-powered work life by cuddling with her cat, Luna, and searching for serial killer documentaries on Netflix – don’t worry, she isn’t looking for tips (or so she reassures us…)
