Public and Media Relations
We’re adept at using the full range of media channels – including social and new media – to build confidence and trust in you, your company and your brand.
Our core PR services include:
We project key news and information about your organisation through the print, broadcast and online media to make sure you’re part of the news agenda. With the media landscape constantly evolving, we use our excellent contacts and knowledge of how journalists tick to get you noticed, on your terms.
Whether you’re wanting to raise awareness, change attitudes or influence behaviour, it often takes a sustained effort to bring about meaningful results. We can put your issue on the news agenda to help achieve your aims.
Rolling news and social media can quickly shatter a carefully crafted public image. We use media channels judiciously to protect and enhance your reputation, so that you’re held in high regard and to put you firmly on the front foot when your reputation is at risk.
By putting in place a thorough and resilient crisis plan, we respond to unforeseen or extreme events to ensure stakeholders receive accurate, timely information through media channels or directly.
Business to Business (B2B) communications
We provide clear, concise and accurate communications between businesses – for example between a company and its supply chain partners – to build understanding and trust.
Public affairs is about ensuring your message is heard and acted upon in the corridors of power.
Engaging politicians effectively is about more than highlighting problems. It’s about proposing solutions as well. Developing a compelling case, forging alliances and speaking to the right people at the right time are all crucial to success.
Core public affairs services include:
Using our in-depth knowledge of the Scottish, UK and European political systems, we enable our clients to communicate effectively with politicians in Holyrood, Westminster and Brussels. We equip you with the skills and information you need to put forward your case and influence the legislative process, through meetings with politicians and civil servants, committee hearings, briefings, policy publications and themed events.
Often, it’s the decisions made at local level that have a big impact on our lives. We give you the tools to engage with local government constructively, to ease your company’s path through the planning process, ensure your organisation is top of the list for funding or that the significance of your investment in a local area is fully recognised.
Political monitoring and analysis
We provide regular bulletins and briefing papers to update you on political or legislative developments which could affect your business or sector, together with solutions to help you rise to any challenges or opportunities.
Community and Stakeholder Engagement
We specialise in community and stakeholder engagement. From wind farms to supermarkets, we have extensive experience of guiding applications successfully through the planning process. From launching new products or services to running grassroots campaigns, we can also put together targeted programmes to secure local engagement and public support.
We are currently working on community and stakeholder engagement projects across the length and breadth of Scotland and beyond.
Core community and stakeholder engagement services include:
We enable you to communicate constructively and persuasively with key target audiences in a particular locality or group. Using media and direct communications channels, we help you to respond to criticism and galvanise potential supporters into action.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
Giving back to the communities you work in doesn’t just make your company feel good about itself. It can make a real difference to people’s lives and deserves to be promoted. We help you adopt the most appropriate strategy for highlighting the good you’re doing and securing local recognition.
We can help you organise the planning and delivery of events, giving you a platform to communicate a message directly and act as a focus for engaging with your target audience.
Copywriting and design coordination
We have extensive experience in writing everything from newsletters to websites and acting as a single point of contact for a complete package, including coordination of design and production.
