We’re not the biggest or the loudest agency in the Bath and Bristol area – but pound for pound, we are the best.
The company was founded in 2013 by husband and wife team Kevin and Annette Maxwell. Kevin is a 20-year veteran of newsrooms including the BBC, Bloomberg, the Associated Press, Sky News, Sports News Television and the ABC. His experience includes reporting, producing, writing, video editing, media training and running news and planning desks.
Kevin excels at tailoring and pitching stories and generating great media coverage. Over the years he has directed a wide range of campaigns – ranging from tech, B2B, B2C, marketing, e-commerce and personal finance – promoting pioneering British and international companies in national, technical and trade press.
Away from the office, he’s been known to grace the basketball courts of Bath and enjoys the occasional pint of cider!
Annette is a published author, proofreader, editor and copywriter. She provides support with planning and implementing new accounts, whilst managing the office, maintaining the company accounts and updating the website.
After ten years of living in Sydney, she’s enjoying discovering and sampling the coffee houses of Bath and Bristol in her quest for the perfect flat white!
Unfortunately most PR agencies exaggerate and embellish what they can deliver. The reality is they don’t have our journalistic experience – very few worked in newsrooms, and even fewer held senior editorial roles.
We’re different – we’re realistic – and we punch above our weight.
Our track record includes generating coverage in titles including the BBC, The Guardian, the Daily Mail, the New York Times, The Times, CNET, GigaOm, Sky News, Wired, Forbes, the Daily Mirror, the Financial Times, the LA Times, the Mail On Sunday, The Metro, Retail Week and City A.M.
The majority of our clients are start-ups and SMEs involved in technology, B2B, B2C, marketing, retail and personal finance who want one thing – media coverage to drive sales and reinforce their credentials.
PR isn’t about mailing out a press release – it’s about creating and crafting story ideas.
And with 20 years newsroom experience – coupled with five years working in PR – we know the titles and journalists who’ll be interested in your story.
What you’ll get:
Honesty – we won’t take work we don’t think we can deliver on
Two decades of newsroom experience and knowledge combined with five years in PR
A bespoke media strategy centred on relevant titles and journalists
A ban on spamming – we open our contacts book and call journalists
An agency that genuinely loves generating media coverage and raising a brand’s profile
What you won’t get:
A team of head nodding sycophants – we believe in honesty and transparency
Time wasting – we don’t take on accounts outside of our areas of expertise
A reliance on emailing press releases – we pick up the phone and speak to journalists
A ‘one size fits all’ approach – we know each client’s story needs to be told differently
Buck-passing – unlike larger agencies, your account won’t be won by a ‘grown-up’ before being passed onto cheaper and less experienced colleagues
