The net.mentor team

A small team with a powerful network

The core of Net.Mentor is a team of two: Peter & Sheila Brill. When it comes to content, we know our colons from our ellipses. But we don’t know everything! That’s why we’ve built a team of trusted, experienced Associates to provide a collaborative approach to all aspects of content and content marketing.


Peter Brill

Born around the corner from the site of the 2012 Olympics, Peter grew up in East London before heading to York University for a BA(Hons) in Politics. This was followed by a Postgraduate Diploma in Radio Journalism from City University in London.

After a career as a financial and sports journalist, Peter turned to Public and Media Relations, working for in-house for Toyota(GB) and as a consultant for clients including Mobil1 , Follett, Shell, Kia Cars and Eurotech, before becoming Head of Public Relations at RAC Motoring Services.

He founded Net.Mentor in 2000, applying his journalistic, PR and marketing skills to creating content for a wide range of clients. Additional experience has included Media and Crisis Management training at Executive Board level; lecturing in PR for the Cambridge Marketing College and facilitating 72 media conferences in just two weeks at the Basketball Arena of the London 2012 Olympics.

In 2014, Peter was appointed Non-Executive Director of NWN Blue Squared, specialist accountants to the music and creative industries.

Peter is a Member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations and the Motor Industry Public Affairs Association. He is a former Trustee of Sense, the Deafblind and Rubella Association, and a Trustee of Salaam Shalom - the UK’s first Muslim/Jewish radio station turned arts and media project.


Sheila Brill

Born and educated in Glasgow, Sheila has an Education Diploma in Primary Teaching (DCE) from Jordanhill College (Glasgow) and a BA (Open University).

Sheila's teaching career spanned 16 years in primary, special needs and advisory teaching in Glasgow, Winnipeg and London. She then turned her attention to publishing and worked in education and social care publishing as managing editor, development editor and textbook author for online and offline courses. Over the years, her clients have included ACCA, WordHouse/Nelson Thornes, Macmillan, Addison Wesley Longman, Pearson Education, Sense (The Deafblind Rubella Association) and the Society for Endocrinology.

Joining Peter to work as a co-Director in Net.Mentor, Sheila brought her teaching and publishing experience together to write online and offline courses for the not-for-profit sector as well as an online tutor for e-learning students in the social care sector. With a qualification from the London School of Journalism, Sheila has developed her news and business writing skills and now writes regularly for many of Net.Mentor's clients.
