What our clients say about Livewire Public Relations
Bill Nimmo, Chair of Trustees, ACE Centre Advisory Trust
Sound crisis comms advice coupled with stunning coverage on the BBC, ITN and in regional Oxford and SEN trade media generated by Livewire Public Relations, brought the desperate financial plight of The ACE Centre, a charity which supports people with complex difficulties who struggle to communicate, to the personal attention of David Cameron during Prime Minister’s Question Time. Livewire’s outstanding work has been instrumental in securing the crucial government funding we needed to avert the centre’s imminent closure, enabling us to continue to provide vital support to thousands of people who are unable to communicate without the aid of assistive technology. The team at Livewire did a truly outstanding job.
Gary Morrison, General Manager EMEA, Turning Technologies
Working with Livewire PR is like having a professional PR guru as part of our team. Their staff promote the interests of Turning Technologies with enthusiasm, creativity and passion.
Tom Hooper, Managing Director, BrightSpark Education
Livewire’s launch of BrightSpark Education’s online maths tuition service was stunning – reaching 240 million listeners/readers in the first month alone – securing coverage on BBC television, radio and online, all the top UK nationals and a wide range of Asian and American titles. The high level coverage they generated also resulted in a number of significant networking opportunities along with approaches from both partners and potential investors.
Christos Papakyriacou, Managing Director, Alpha Micro Components
The coverage achieved by Livewire PR, both online and offline, has led to a flood of new business leads that are keeping us very busy!
Elaine Emerson, Marketing Manager
Livewire helped to drive visitors to www.texthelp.com through an online video campaign it secured with a leading education website which receives over 200,000 monthly unique visitors. During the two-month click-through campaign, the education site appeared as one of the top referral sites to our website with visitors spending on average eight minutes and viewing approximately six pages per visit.
Sean O’Sullivan, Headteacher, Frank Wise School
Livewire’s media relations work has increased awareness on a national and regional level of our recent ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted inspection and the crucial work we do to help SEN pupils. Pupils and teachers alike were particularly thrilled to be filmed for ITV News!
Neil Milliken, Head of Mobile Development, Mobispeech
The high-quality regional television coverage Livewire generated has created widespread interest in our product from the mobile sector and enabled me to talk with large hardware manufacturers where previously I had been unsuccessful. This visual representation of our technology has excited companies across the UK and the US and demonstrated all the cool things you can do with it - something I’d never have been able to convey in an e-mail or on a phone call. The return on investment for this media activity has surpassed expectations - as the direct result of TV coverage, I am now in regular touch with the right people at key technology companies which hits my objectives spot-on!
Helen Pollard, Director of Marketing and Admissions, The Royal Alexandra & Albert School
Livewire has secured some excellent media coverage on national TV and in the national press for The Royal Alexandra & Albert School. This has really helped to significantly raise our profile as a state boarding school. The PR services provided by Livewire represent excellent value especially when compared with the cost of advertising.
Tim Spencer, Business Development Manager, Aurora Computer Services Ltd
The coverage that Livewire secured for us at the BETT Show was simply amazing and has ensured that we have a growing list of schools who wish to work with us.
Sarah Mussi, Author and Winner of the Glen Dimplex Children’s Book of the Year Award
The Livewire PR team has never failed to impress me. Their professionalism, competence and sheer enthusiasm makes it a pleasure to interact with them. Working with Livewire has not only opened up a world of media opportunities and awards recognition for me as a new author but has also been a significant help in promoting my books to the general public. I would have no hesitation in recommending Livewire.
Tristan Wood, Managing Director, Livewire Digital
Livewire PR has supported our communications requirements since 2002, during which time the team has consistently applied PR strategies which have been timely, creative and delivered excellent results. The team is responsive, not only understanding the client’s products and services, but also the media. Furthermore, in what can be seen as a technically complex area, the account team has demonstrated its clear understanding of our business and the challenges we face. I do not hesitate to recommend them whenever I can.
Chris Scarth, Director, Prime Principle
We have been really impressed not only by the coverage received so far but also with the professionalism and support received from Livewire!
Stephen Clarke, Managing Director, Contact Group
Livewire's work to raise awareness of truancy and promote Truancy Call in the media has helped to further enhance our profile within UK schools. We have had some excellent media coverage thanks to Livewire's innovative approach and knowledge of the media. There is no doubt that this has presented us with additional business, which without the coverage we would have been unlikely to attain.
Stephen Breslin, CEO, Futurelab
Livewire's outstanding work in promoting Futurelab's events, publications and software has been instrumental in raising Futurelab's profile with key industry, policy and practitioner communities. Livewire excels at bringing a story to life and communicating complex issues in an accessible and meaningful way.
Barbara Higginbotham, Sales Director, Data Harvest
Since signing up with Livewire Public Relations, Data Harvest has won 4 major awards and has been consistently featured in the education press. An increase in sales of 17% in one year is almost unheard of these days. We are sure that our regular presence in the education press, and the winning of 4 major education awards - all the result of Livewire's activity - have played a significant role in that increase.
Gareth Phillips, Director of Sales & Business Strategy, EDI plc
Since appointing Livewire PR, we have seen the profile of EDI's qualifications and GOAL assessments raised to new levels. Regular coverage across national and local media has furnished our sales teams with great marketing collateral they can use to open doors and close sales. Livewire is professional and innovative and has made a very real difference to our business in terms of profile and coverage.
