PR Strategy

A PR strategy is important to have in place to manage the reputation of your brand. Without it, you won’t be able to fully support your business vision and objectives or demonstrate the value and return on investment PR has.

The PR strategy needs to be integrated with marketing to really help drive brand awareness, reach and engagement with relevant audiences and media outlets. The campaigns and stories, which support the strategy, must be authentic to achieve coverage. So, there is a lot to consider!

Our PR team are strategic, commercially-minded thinkers, as well as talented, creative writers with an extensive range of media contacts. We can support you in the development of your PR strategy.

Crisis Communications

In the digital age, a social media crisis can spark from very little – and the flames can blaze at an alarming rate.

An Instagram or Facebook post on an apparently trivial matter can go viral within minutes – spelling potential disaster for the organisation concerned. But a PR crisis can also follow a more traditional route – from a fire in a warehouse to a company director embezzling funds and any number of other scenarios.

At Chalk + Ward we have the expertise to plan for any crisis – and the skills to help you cope when the unexpected happens.

Media Training

The reputation of any organisation can stand or fall on the quality of its spokespeople.

The opportunities to give interviews to the press are many and varied – but thorough training is required before venturing near a microphone.

Chalk + Ward offers a detailed programme of practical training aimed at helping to transform even the most reluctant interviewees into seasoned performers.

PR events

A dramatic stunt or a witty advertising slogan can be the cornerstone in launching a memorable PR campaign.

At Chalk + Ward we have many years of experience in creating a truly memorable event. Our creative, digital, marketing and PR teams work seamlessly together in creating events that will be the talk of the town – and attract widespread media attention.
