1. Can you tell us a bit about PR Agency One and what you do?
We build and nurture reputations for businesses, as well as boosting their visibility online. As a fully integrated public relations business, delivering both B2B PR and consumer PR, we’ve got an expert team trained in both traditional and digital practices. As one of the first to combine PR and SEO, we’ve cracked the age old dilemma of how to measure results via our proprietary evaluation system OneEval. We’ve won awards for our evaluation which is what we’re proud of and why we’ve grown so rapidly over the last four years or so.
2. What made you sign up as an exhibitor at ProlificNorthLive?
It’s a brilliant platform to get our clients from across the North important messages about the digital sector out there, and as champions of digital ourselves, we’ve been keen readers of Prolific North since it emerged in 2013. When we found out about ProlificNorthLive, it made sense for us to get involved and join the thriving digital community in our brilliant region. We want to show our support for the industry and to meet other, like-minded people, that are as excited about it as us.
3. What are you looking forward to bringing to the event?
Mostly, we’re excited to network with the people that are building this brilliant community with us to see how we can work together to make it even more successful. Manchester wants to be the tech hub of the UK, and to do so we all need to come together at events like this to make it happen. We’re also excited to discuss with delegates the ways in which we can all individually bring something to the table.
4. What excites you most about the North’s media and creative sectors?
The North is a great place to be because it makes the fast-paced nature of the industry feel a bit more manageable than some of the other regions within the UK. We attract world class businesses and talent from all over the world, but we still have a tight community, which is unusual.
5. Why is the North such an exciting place to be right now for creative and digital businesses?
There’s so much happening and heaps of opportunity for businesses to work together. And although there is healthy competition, there is a real feeling that we all want each other to succeed. With plans like TechNorth, there really is no better time for businesses to be here. Innovations like graphene that came out of University of Manchester, prove there is a strong academic profile in the region.
6. Where do you see PR Agency One in five years’ time?
We’re going to keep doing what we’re doing and building on what we already know, to stay ahead of the game in terms of PR and the digital space. As one of the first to adopt the digital first approach to PR, we’re committed to make sure that we remain ahead of our competition and build new innovations into the business to do so.
7. If PR Agency One could have a dinner party with three people, dead or alive, who would they be?
Eric Cantona because he’s the King. Also, being French probably means he eats well and knows a good bottle of wine when he sees it.
The mercurial Mark E Smith from The Fall.
And Kate Moss. Definitely Kate Moss.
