About Us

Each PR/communications activity - whether briefed in as an all-year coverage requirement, launch splash, Christmas burst, interview programme or a strategically planned refreshment campaign, is carefully evolved and crafted from scratch.

Every appropriate communications platform is utilised, including 'classic' press and broadcast (national and regional TV and radio), online/social media relations and promotions, launch parties and 'Open House' events, book tours and road shows, TV and film product placement, down-the-line interviews, targeted sampling - and Anniversaries, Awards and Championships.

Our long-term and very varied experience - working with many high-profile and internationally acclaimed companies, organisations and services means that we know what we are doing, and we won't be wasting your money, whatever your requirement.
