PR for Your Business
Public relations (PR) is all about getting your business noticed. Launching a new product range, opening a new factory, recruiting new directors, securing a large order or celebrating a decade in business? These are all opportunities to make your business stand out.
PR can involve a wide range of activities including finding speaking opportunities, writing and issuing news releases, developing relationships with the media, crisis communications, social media engagement and internal communications and engagement campaigns for your staff. If you’re launching a new product or service at a major exhibition, there are many ways to attract media attention.
PR plays an increasingly crucial role in helping you manage your business reputation online. Awareness and monitoring of online sentiment about a business or issue can also an important part of any corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme.
How your business can benefit from effective PR

- Differentiates your organisation within a specific market
- Helps to proactively manage change communications regarding e.g., a factory move, M&A, closure or change of company management
- Profiles and communicates company strategy to business/financial markets in a pre-IPO situation
- Creates a credible media profile for a company figurehead, e.g. a CEO, chairman, managing director
