Public Relations

Our experience ranges from telecommunications, IT security, smart infrastructure, electric vehicles to enterprise hardware and software, and data centres. We excel in making technology relevant to all audiences and strive to continually learn and adapt the way we work to meet the rapid changes in the industry.

Business to Business PR

Health Sector PR

In health sector PR our experience ranges from working for global health and life sciences companies, operating across many fields including, healthcare insurance, drug development, COVID PPE and vaccines and disease diagnosis processes, molecular imaging, radio-therapeutics and analytical instruments, as well as offshore outsourcing, business intelligence and strategic consulting services for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.

VP built a foundation for their clients establishing them as thought leaders in their key areas. By generating positive coverage and more balanced reporting, the campaigns not only increased awareness but also helped to avert coverage of any potentially sensitive news.
Healthcare PR

Our expertise in healthcare PR has led to some impressive campaigns for our clients. We combine consumer PR, business to business PR and even technology PR to ensure we spread the message of our healthcare clients to as wide an audience as possible.

VP launches health app for android and iphone

App PR is an exceedingly competitive area. Newspapers and magazines have limited space to write about apps and they are bombarded with information about new app launches on a daily basis. While journalists are generally happy to write about new products and services, apps are a far less popular source of news because of the sheer volume launched each and every day. When VP was tasked with launching the iphone and android app by the British Osteopathic Association we secured coverage in the Daily Record, Hello, Natural Health and Sainsburys magazine not to mention countless other regional publications and blogs.

VP launches newly built care home with ITV publicity

When Cambian Healthcare asked VP to announce it had combined its operation with Care Aspirations, which would operate under the name Cambian Healthcare, VP used its first and newly built care home as a hook to grab media attention. Prior to the opening of Delfyn Lodge, a mental health unit for women, VP contacted local newspaper, online and broadcast media as well as important trade publications and journals. This resulted in coverage in Care Management Matters, Healthcare Market News, local coverage in a number of weekly publications and substantial coverage in daily newspaper the East Anglian Daily Times. The campaign peaked with a pre-recorded, on location broadcast feature by ITV Wales which lasted more than two minutes and was repeated throughout the day and online. ITV and BBC online both ran news stories about the new home.

VP secures £100,000 of print coverage during Back Care Awareness Week

Back Care Awareness Week is an exceptionally competitive time for back care organisations seeking coverage in the media. To make the British Osteopathic Association stand out VP created a campaign to ensure drivers wear their seatbelts properly to protect them from whiplash – a condition many osteopaths have to treat following car accidents. This resulted in:

  • 72 pieces of coverage with an advertising equivalent value of over £90,000 and reached 2.5 million people
  • 166 radio interviews with an advertising equivalent value of over £180,000 with reach to 28 million listeners
  • See the video opposite to see a previous Back Care Awareness Week campaign around carrying big, heavy bags

Consumer PR

In consumer PR, VP has worked for companies in the leisure, entertainment and travel, fashion and jewellery, online communities, and comparison sites, as well as for charities and organisations in complementary health.

Trade Association PR

Trade Association PR is a very specialist area. There are councils, local branches, secretariat functions and varying structures to understand and build relationships with. Stakeholders are wide and varied and require careful consideration and consultation to ensure PR campaigns are a success.

The VoIP pioneer, Audicodes came to us with a very ‘esoteric’ – how do we get the world interested in our Enterprise-Session Border Controllers (E-SBC)? To most E-SBC is just a bunch of letters but to big business it’s a device that stops someone hijacking your telephone system to make illegal calls or intercept your messages.

‘Phone phreakers’ were a phenomenon of the 80’s, a subculture of people who wreaked havoc with telephone systems. We took the idea and gave it a modern twist. The News of the World journalists hacking episode was firmly in the spotlight, so we were able to highlight the dangers of VoIP communications in a very modern way. We achieved coverage in UK, Germany and France.

VP started working for BroardGroup for their very first conference in 2004 and then subsequent conferences up until 2019. This involved managing international media outreach to support BroadGroup’s Datacloud conferences in the UK, Monaco, Singapore, Abu Dhabi, Mauritius, Hong Kong, Sweden, Norway and Ireland. Activities included generating media coverage, securing journalist attendance, profiling BroadGroup analysts, producing thought leadership content around the industry issues and regional reports and supporting sponsors. As well as helping with speaker acquisition, business contacts and staff attendance at selected conferences

Before being acquired, the Health Insurance Group (HIG) was wholly-owned by AXA PPP and advised on appropriate medical insurance for companies and individuals. The company wanted to create brand awareness in the relevant markets; healthcare, insurance, HR & personnel, business, consumer and national media. Focusing on SMEs and the issue of wellbeing in the workplace, VP created a number of campaigns and a varied programme of thought leadership that would cover everything from mental illness, general employee health, insuring employees abroad and maintaining employee engagement.  The PR activity developed in line with HIG’s expanding PMI services such as the introduction of employee health audits, a low-cost benefits portal as well as providing industry perspective on issues such as new government regulations (IPT).  This achieved coverage across target trade, HR and SME media as well as nationals and vertical publications.

In 2013 VP was contracted to act as the press office for the newly formed CHF Media Group, to launch their new children’s animated series – Pip Ahoy! and support associated toy launches and events. CHF was born out of the multi award winning animation house, Cosgrove Hall, famous for big brand children’s shows such as Danger Mouse, Wind in the Willows and Count Duckula. This led to VP representing the award-winning documentary maker, Glasshead, supporting their involvement in Bloodhound and educational programmes for C4 and Al Jazeera TV.
