WHAT WE DO...

PRESS RELATIONS

Our goal: bringing your brand’s image to life by creating crystal-clear messages to raise your media profile. Experts in strategic consulting, we implement media campaigns through editorial direction and brand content creation (press releases, breaking news, invitations). We create and maintain tailor-made media databases, working closely with journalists, bloggers and influencers to manage on and offline media relations.

Our transversal approach enables us to adapt our services to meet our clients’ needs:

 

International press

The trilingual team (English, French, Italian) provides the perfect link between your brand and the international media, so nothing is lost in translation. We have particularly strong relationships with the French, Italian and Anglophone media (supported by our teams in in Paris, Milan and NYC).

International PR co-ordination (for brands without a country-specific agency)

We combine our international expertise and act as the go-between, overseeing the coordination your brand’s global PR strategy, with a particular emphasis on our partner countries France and Italy.

We promote global and local clients to our well-established network of UK media relations. And as native English speakers, we always get the right message across.
