Corporate communications

We help companies communicate effectively with key stakeholders – both internal and external. Experts in communication we use our insight and analysis to develop strategies to inform and motivate audiences, that reflect commercial objectives, reinforce brand values and make a difference to the bottom line.

Media Relations

We build lasting relationships with journalists on behalf of our clients, helping secure column inches in print and build a presence that raises their profile – in the right way. Working with our clients we deliver persuasive PR programmes that offer a good return on investment – and we always get excited about the results we achieve.

Crisis Management

We work with organisations to identify crisis scenarios and create robust communications procedures that can be put into use should the worst happen. We also act as a gatekeeper for clients, liaising with media contacts so the core team can focus on getting the issue in question resolved. In the past we’ve provided crisis support to help handle industrial accidents, restructuring programmes and IT infrastructure system failures. It pays to be prepared for the unexpected.

Internal communications

In a busy marketing communications department, it’s easy to channel all of your efforts externally and forget about employee engagement. We’re adept at devising materials that can help organisations maintain a dialogue between management and staff.

Copywriting

If you are puzzling over a critical piece of marketing communications collateral or struggling to establish the correct tone of voice, then why not let us help. Over the years we have written compelling content for websites, customer magazines, newsletters, features, whitepapers, case studies, reports, awards, brochures, speeches, presentations, proposals and more.

Social Media

Do you need to build a presence online using social media channels? If you aren’t sure what to do, we can help you get social, assisting with the creation of accounts; the formulation of a delivery strategy; and – if you need it – practical assistance with tweets, status updates and general engagement issues.

We worked with Ubisense from 2013 to 2016 – helping the company promote its technology and its ability to locate, connect and manage assets, in automated manufacturing environments, in a way that increases productivity, flexibility and quality.

5/5
Natalie's personal drive and "anything I can do to help" attitude have meant that I can get on with my work knowing full well that promises will be kept, status will be regularly updated without the need to ask, and results will always delivered.

a different pr agency

Ask us why we’re different to other PR agencies and we’ll tell you it’s because we don’t want to be a big agency. Of course we’re ambitious – just not in a big bucks / world domination way. We’re motivated by working with clients on interesting projects where the objectives are clear and where we can form small, effective teams. This cuts down on the politics and admin, which ultimately means we can focus on delivering work we’re proud of, and achieving results that make a difference.

Whatever the communications brief we’re flexible, working with organisations on both a retained and project basis. Some of our clients have worked with us for more than a decade – using us as an extension of their in-house team. Others turn to us at regular intervals for the delivery of finite campaigns that will create a short, sharp burst of publicity. Tell us what you need and we’re sure we’ll come up with the goods.

Recognition

The calibre and effectiveness of our PR & marketing agency has been recognised by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) via its annual, regional PRide Awards. In 2013 we took home two awards for our work for ACT – Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust.

Huntsman was MayFifteen’s very first retained client (December 2009) – but our relationship with the business dates back to 2002. 

Today, we provide Huntsman with a range of PR, media relations and copywriting support services – working closely with communications associates based in Europe, Asia and the United States – on the delivery of internal and external communications activities.

5/5
Natalie has provided PR consultancy to me at Huntsman for more than 10 years. I truly appreciate her ability to quickly grasp a brief, turn the work around and deliver powerful results time after time. She's a real asset to our business and a great person to work with.
