PR is about reputation - the result of what you do, what you say and what others say about you. PR is about making sure that what you want to say is what your audience hears and understands. It is also about protecting your brand as well as promoting it. As a specialist financial services consultancy, we have considerable experience in building brands and managing reputations of high profile companies across a range of sectors including protection, pensions, annuities, mortgages, general insurance, savings and investments.
Social media should form a core part of a company’s communications activity, to directly engage and build awareness among your target audience. With extensive experience in running effective social media programmes, we can review and advise your business on its current social media activity, devise a social media strategy to complement public relations or marketing activity, run standalone social media campaigns, and advise on how to measure its impact.
With extensive event management experience we manage both small and large events including hosting, tailored events, award ceremonies, conferences, round tables and parties.
Reputation management is about understanding how and why your organisation is seen in a certain way and understanding how to both build and improve a company or individual's reputation.
