We combine a creative approach and deep understanding of your sector to curate your story so that is strong enough to earn the attention of journalists and relevant enough to provide them with engaging content for their audiences, whether across print, digital or broadcast channels.
pre-IPO + IPO
Gracechurch has a strong track record in positioning companies that are coming to market. We create compelling narratives – ensuring visibility in the business and investment media. The process starts during the pre-IPO period, delivering the Company’s key business messages and through the IPO process to reach the investment community. We employ a range of media channels to engage with potential investors, establish a profile and educate the market on the investment proposition.
Media is a key stakeholder in any M&A event. Handled well, they can amplify the positives of a deal. Handled poorly or not at all, you let someone else set the narrative. Backed by a team with experience handling media relations on more than 200 transactions over the past 25 years, we provide the informed media strategy and implementation that will set your transaction off on the right foot.
corporate and brand reputation management – specialist sector outreach
Even the most compelling corporate stories get left untold if you don’t have a partner who can connect the narrative to the one telling it. That’s where we come in. Our deep understanding of a myriad of industries and the journalists covering it allow us to carefully craft messaging that engages with the media, so your brand gets the platform it deserves.
Gracechurch frequently works with clients as an embedded PR partner, providing all the functions of a plugged-in press room.
