About us

We were founded by former Guardian Media Group Senior Journalist, Rachel Burks back in 1994.

As a result of Rachel’s background and experience, we base our methods of communication on the principles of good journalism, combined with commercial common sense – hence our strapline: ‘Profit from PR’.

Why PR?

Editorial coverage has credibility. It is seen as the independent & objective views made by an impartial journalist or with social media, member of the public. Consumers trust and believe it.

Years of experience

All our team members have experience of working with or in the national and regional media and have undertaken training as journalists.

Media contacts

We know which media to target, we understand what content the media is looking for, when to pitch to them and the best way to deliver your message within the story to enhance your brand.

PR can be more cost effective than other marketing

What you achieve in the way of visibility through PR-driven media coverage, and the improvement in the perception of your business, would cost you much, much more if you did other forms of marketing.

To achieve brand awareness and positive name checks, your PR has to be persistent and to have a consistent message and format.
