We will provide strategic communications advice based on your company’s specific needs. Services we can offer as part of an integrated communications package of support include:
Supporting our clients to develop communications strategies that support their organisational goals is an important part of our work. For many of our clients, such as the People’s Powerhouse movement, we work as part of their core team, helping to make their communications activity as impactful as possible.
Our public relations and media support is second to none. We won’t just get you column inches, we will make sure you are targeting the right media outlets and journalists to achieve your strategic objectives. From promoting a new product or service to media management in a breaking news situation our experienced team can help.
We will advise you on the best way of reaching your target audiences, including through digital channels where appropriate. We specialise in social value marketing campaigns, putting people and communities at the heart of campaign planning and delivery. Our unique partnership with a Manchester-based media buying agency means we can offer competitive advertising rates.
We can help you tell your story visually, through our in-house filming and editing team. We can also support you to create impactful social video content, that your audiences want to watch, share and engage with.
We film in 4K as standard and can also provide time-lapse filming services.
Social Value PR & Communications
With clients including ANTZ Group, the People's Powerhouse and Transform Lives we are the communications agency for clients working to deliver social value. Our strategic communications support helps our clients support the development of stronger communities. We care about giving a voice to people who are less often heard.
Our Managing Director Helen Furnivall is part of the People's Powerhouse strategic team and in 2017 we provided support to the first ever People's Powerhouse conference in Doncaster. This was followed later in the year by a high profile report launch at the House of Lords which secured national and regional media coverage.
