Our Services

Reputation management

We work with our clients to actively manage their business’ reputations. From understanding the impact of regulatory threats to the changing winds of the news agenda, we provide clear and practical insight and advice.

Communications strategy and implementation

We listen to our clients. We take time to truly understand their businesses and the issues they face.

This is how we create communications strategies that make measurable impact. Our strategies are a fundamental part of your business growth plans, not an added ‘nice to have’. Our strategies and their implementation are ruthlessly tracked, measured and reported on, ensuring our clients see clear and transparent results – with no nonsense added.

Creative and corporate media relations

We are news junkies. We get a buzz from working with the media, whether traditional print and broadcast, or online and viral. We get a kick from seeing our clients and campaigns in the headlines.

We don’t ‘do’ PR for its own sake. Everything we do– from a press release to a digital film – is carefully designed to add value to our clients’ overall communications strategies and business.

Messaging

We work closely with clients to understand their brand, work and goals. From here, we devise and evidence messages that can help them engage and influence key audiences.

We also help clients to place their existing messaging into an external, competitive context and advise on how their story can resonate with media and other stakeholders.

Specialisms include messaging audits, workshops, functional frameworks and rehearsals.

Media training

People are scared of public speaking. When that ‘public’ is actually thousands of readers, viewers, listeners or followers and you are representing your business, the stakes are incredibly high.

We work with clients to prepare them for the spotlight, helping them to feel calm, confident and on message. Done well, media interviews and public events are incredible opportunities to influence and engage. We help our clients take full advantage.

Specialisms include one on one and group training sessions, messaging workshops, presentation training, social media management tutorials and executive coaching.

Stakeholder Engagement

Communicating effectively with influential stakeholder groups is vital for the success of all businesses. At Story, we work with clients to help them identify, understand and engage their stakeholders.

  • Identify and order – First, we work with the client to map out who their stakeholders are, what they think and their level of influence
  • Strategy – Working with clients, we devise engagement plans, messages and tactics
  • Implementation – As a team, we execute the agreed tactics, tracking all the time the impact they have. Tactics from across our service suite may be used including events, tailored content and media activity

We understand the vital importance of stakeholders and our engagement strategies are often the first step in building effective and business focused communications plans for our clients.
