Pilkington Communications were instrumental in the development of our website and the promotion of our Velocity Growth Hub – publicising events and workshops, writing press releases, building strong media relationships with the press, radio and television and working hard to raise the profile of SEMLEP on social media.
The Pilkington Communications team have excellent skills in all these areas and maintain an incredibly professional approach to their work with clients. I thoroughly recommended them.

Pilkington Communications have been supporting us with PR coaching as their chosen ‘Charity of the Year’, giving us advice about how to revamp our website and create our own e-newsletter, guidance on how to approach our corporate relationships and communicate with our stakeholders more effectively, and also helped us generate media coverage.
When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, they held our hand and helped us make some difficult decisions about our fundraising plans and social media activity. We are so grateful for their backing.

We are now the only industrial estate in the UK, and quite possibly Europe, to have secured a third term as a BID – this is a huge achievement, with Pilkington Communications and its strategic PR approach central to all we do.
The Pilkington Communications team lead on all our website content, rebranding, e-newsletters, printed publications, case studies, all our films and social media channels and much, much more.

Pilkington Communications are a very important and highly cherished members of our team, and to say they have made a difference to our charity’s profile and reputation across the county would be an understatement.
Their comprehensive public relations service is completely tailored to our specific needs and our mission, vision and values. They have helped us write successful award applications, generated significant media coverage, helped us boost our social media presence, set up new communication channels with our key stakeholders, funding bodies and partner organisations, and played a significant role in a number of high profile events and launches. Their strategic, professional approach ensures that all our key messages, stories and campaigns are aligned, and we are delighted with the results.

The team at Pilkington Communications achieved phenomenal results for our virtual assistant business. In the space of just two months, we gained media coverage in local and national online publications and print magazines, had interviews on radio and even made an appearance on primetime regional TV – boosting our reputation and generating leads.
Being a small, independent, family-run business – we did not think any of this was possible. Results aside, what is most impressive about Pilkington Communications is the way they do things. They are personal, professional, friendly, realistic, consultative, passionate and honest. As former journalists they have expertise, experience, integrity and a work ethic of the highest standard.
When a journalist compliments you on your choice of PR firm, you know you’ve made a good decision.

Pilkington Communications helped us boost our profile with messages about the positive impact we make as a social enterprise. Through their creative use of film, images and words, we have been able to reach a wide audience – something we would not have been able to achieve on our own. They have also supported us with awards and funding applications and, thanks to their knowledge of Northamptonshire, helped us build relationships with some highly relevant key organisations. Their support has put us in a good position to grow as a business as we try to promote more active and sustainable travel.

We approached Pilkington Communications because we wanted a more professional tone of voice to communicate with key stakeholders – FHA hairdressers, suppliers, and potential sponsors and members. In just over a year they helped us boost our profile with these audiences and others. I can trust them to take on a project from start to finish, whether that is liaising with designers, writing copy for our regular e-newsletters, capturing the moments from our high-profile events, managing the content on our social media channels and much more. Their passion, enthusiasm and commitment is impressive, and it is because of them that I recognise the value of effective public relations.
