Driving awareness of new Biotech firm helping develop the world’s first treatment for TUBB4a leukodystrophy.
The media results kicked off with a bang in the new year as BBC World Service aired a fantastic business programme featuring the founder of SynaptixBio. A big win for our client SynaptixBio which is aiming to develop the world’s first treatment for TUBB4a leukodystrophy.
This set in motion a phenomenal year of coverage for the client, which now includes major features on Sky News, ITV News, BBC News, and Yahoo! News.
In total, we helped SynaptixBio secure 149 articles internationally in 2022, with an estimated audience reach of 2.2 billion. The company was mentioned almost 400 times in media content – and the year isn’t quite over yet.
Having developed a unique concept in which we invited some of the world’s leading sports journalists to literally sweat for several hours in 2021, its popularity among media couldn’t be ignored.
Granted, the idea is slightly more complex and nuanced: We invited journalists from the UK’s biggest media outlets to train in a heat chamber at the Porsche Human Performance centre – one of the UK’s leading sports science labs – to experience the unique heat challenges faced by footballers playing in Qatar.
It was a huge success, with Sky Sports News, BBC News, The Times, Daily Mail and renowned international news agencies Reuters and PA Media chosen from an impressive list of hopefuls to attend.
The popularity of the event led to an entire year of media days focused on major sporting events where heat is a factor.
Throughout 2022, we have worked with titles including ESPN, Business Insider, Sky Sports News, Daily Mail and The Times (again), The Athletic, Daily Telegraph and Daily Mirror to take part in a range of sporting and physical tests.
It helped us secure 41 pieces of top-tier articles in some of the world’s most-read and respected platforms. The estimated global audience reach was 1 billion.
Launching #INSPIRE, an RFU / ACME Whistles collaboration to attract 500 more female referees into the sport by the end of 2024
It might not come a s a surprise to hear that we love sport, so when we had the chance to partner with the Rugby Football Union (RFU) alongside our client ACME Whistles – we jumped at it.
The RFU was tasked with attracting 500 more female referees into the sport by the end of 2024. A huge undertaking, that required a hero moment to launch the campaign.
Linking with our good friends at RUCK.co.uk, we designed a campaign to find and celebrate 50 inspiring female referee stories from around England and gather them all at the home of Rugby (Twickenham) ahead of one of 2022’s highlight autumn internationals.
The stage was literally set, and the incredible female referees stories started flooding in!
The resulting media interest generated over 105 pieces of TV, radio, print and online articles reaching a massive 29 million people.
Media relations to help the only national charity dedicated to empowering individuals living with bipolar– Bipolar UK
We’ve also worked on some incredible projects that have made a marked improvement on people’s lives – none more so than helping the only national charity dedicated to empowering individuals living with bipolar– Bipolar UK.
The campaign not only engaged sports stars, major film producers, and even a songwriter who co-penned a Christmas classic, but it resulted in a highlight moment for us as an agency – taking the findings of 18 months’ worth of research and recommendations to policy makers at the Houses of Commons.
Expert positioning through media relations for a leading tax advisor.
As well as long-term clients, we were also delighted to welcome several new brands on board.
Tax specialist Forbes Dawson was among the many new clients to begin working with us this year.
It was an interesting autumn for Forbes Dawson. Following one failed Budget by former chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng, the subsequent U-turn and his successor Jeremy Hunt’s Autumn Statement, tax was undoubtedly high on the UK news agenda.
This placed the firm in prime position to deliver expert reactive comment to the announcements to a variety of high-profile media platforms, including Sky News, FT Adviser, Daily Express and a range of leading trade publications.
