CREATING ENGAGING CONTENT WHICH TELLS YOUR STORY AND BUILDS YOUR BUSINESS
Being bold isn’t about being the loudest and making the most noise; it’s about daring to be different.
We are Be Bold – and everything we do is concentrated on delivering results for our clients. From service sector to advanced manufacturing, environmental technology to economic development policy, our track record speaks for itself.
We talk the language of business as well as the language of the newsroom, giving us a rare blend of skills and insight which we put to use on your behalf.
WHAT WE DELIVER
Enhanced engagement with your target audience, a raised profile
for your company, and a virtuous circle of communications across digital and mainstream platforms to ensure reach and relevance.
Whether we are the calm voice in a media crisis, creating
infographics for key audiences, developing case studies or writing your news story to release to the media, blogging, pinning, tweeting or sharing, Be Bold is your bolt-on PR and communications team.
Ultimately, we add value to your business.
Words. They mean nothing until you say the right ones to the right people
Be Bold offers a proven cross-platform and results-driven approach to business communications. Our directors are former journalists with an inside knowledge of the media and impeccable contacts.
Amy Bould, experienced in broadcast and print, is a former news and business editor with one of the UK’s top five regional newspapers
and Mark Waugh, with a background in radio, print and corporate comms, is an award-winning digital media editor and journalist.
The team includes consultants with both international and national PR agency experience, a former news editor of a leading national industry title and a multi-award winning photographer.
Content. Research, relevance and resonance are the new three 'R
Every business is a media business. The changing communications landscape means you can speak directly to your target audiences, to the markets and the customers which matter most. But they have to want to read what you write, like what you do and trust you to know what they want. That’s where the new three Rs come in.
Creating engaging content is not about buzzwords, jargon or meaningless quotes which fill white space; it’s finding out what you want to say, who you want to say it to and developing a relationship with clients and customers which will ultimately improve your bottom line.
Be Bold’s unique blend of journalism and public relations experience has seen us win clients across the UK, developing regional, national and international campaigns throughout
a range of sectors.
Whether we’re working with one of our service sector SMEs, multi-site manufacturing businesses or FTSE-listed companies, our core values and ethos remain the same. And our success on behalf of our clients is our calling card.
It’s about more than parts and products, we’ll amplify the heart of your business.
From innovation in fencing to covert ops and cyber security, we have it locked-up tight.
ENTERPRISE & ECONOMY
Investment, regeneration, infrastructure. Big concepts that we communicate with clarity.
In a competitive PR landscape, Be Bold clients stand out from the crowd.
AGRICULTURE & RURAL AFFAIRS
Tackling EU agricultural policy or sharing trial data, we excel at telling it straight.
ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT
Biomass boilers, solar power, organics, AD and more – we have the insight and contacts.
Share. It's not enough to simply tell the story
The story is, and has always been, what matters most. Without the story behind the business, the deal, the contract, the people, there is nothing to say. But it’s not just about telling, it’s about sharing.
Sharing across traditional and new media, across a multitude of digital platforms. We understand the social space in which every business now operates – and know how best to leverage it for the benefit of our clients.
Trends in how people speak seem to come around like flu viruses. I recall very well the ranting of my first chief reporter at a sudden proliferation of the use of ‘sooooo…’ at the end of a sentence. Suddenly, everyone seemed to be doing it (this was about 20 years ago). It was, as she quite […]
An awful lot of people, egged on by certain quarters in the media, are thoroughly up-in-arms about vacuum cleaners. You can’t fail to have heard about the recent EU ban on machines that have a motor larger than 1600w. It’s perfect grist for the “look what those idiots in Brussels have gone and done again” brigade. […]
The English language is a truly amazing thing; dynamic, diverse, evolving, complex, sometimes unfathomable and irrational. Very, very few people are true masters of it and those who really understand it would never think to claim that they’ve fully tamed it. The fact that it does evolve is one of the most marvellous things about […]
It’s all very well coming up with smashing, whizz-bang ideas for getting the attention of journalists, but when you cause a bomb scare and the evacuation of major media outlet, you probably haven’t thought it through. Call us old school, but we prefer to concentrate on the fundamentals of working with journalists to make sure […]
I was struck quite forcibly this morning by Michael Gove repeatedly using that term, “political class”, while commenting on the breaking news of Maria Miller’s resignation on Radio 4’s Today programme. You could call this my Thought for the Day, but it actually made me physically cringe to hear it. It felt like that little […]
