Our values

Honest & open

We do everything with integrity. From fact checking the articles we publish to being honest and upfront with our clients and team members – saying what needs to be said, not what wants to be heard.


Progressive partnerships

We earn our partners’ trust by listening and understanding. Every query is a conversation, every problem is a shared challenge. It’s a modern, down-to-earth, people-first approach and we wouldn’t have it any other way.


Free-range working

We’re not afraid to go off the beaten track. Our tried and tested processes are a guide, not a hard and fast rule. We give ourselves the freedom to go with our instincts and get things done. The same goes for our people too. We trust them to work from their homes, a short term rental in Italy, or wherever makes them feel most comfortable to be their best and most productive.


Creative thinking

We support each other to think beyond the brief we’re given. Our imagination and creativity are our secret sauce, the USP that our clients love and that brings extra value to their business.


Raising others up

We aim to be a breath of fresh air in the public relations industry. That means supporting equality by empowering more women to lead, and embracing and coaching the next generation of public relations and content specialists, from all walks of life.
