The internet, online communications and social media have certainly revolutionised the way we all do business. But there will always be a place for face-to-face meetings, pressing the flesh and making connections in person. That’s why we’ve developed corporate business development and networking programmes that have been fundamental in changing the shape of our clients’ businesses and organisations.
In fact, some of the key players at Livewire PR have been in the PR industry since 1990. This means that not only do we possess a vast range of traditional PR skills and experience, and a thorough grounding in the new online communications channels, but it also means that we have a little black book of hot contacts in the education and technology sectors that other PR agencies would love to get their hands on.
Livewire has been instrumental in significantly extending our reach into UK schools through its stakeholder and influencer relations PR campaigns.

Our contacts are at the heart of everything we do for our education and technology clients, and they have helped us to develop corporate business development and networking programmes that have proved highly successful in advancing our clients’ businesses and organisations. Now we’d like to do the same for you.
A strategy for your corporate business development
As with all of our PR services, everything begins with an in-depth conversation with your team. We’ll review your sales and marketing plan and key business objectives. Then we’ll formulate a strategy that will enable us to help you achieve these objectives.
Our strategy will include several important strands that we’ll put into operation to help you start building business relationships. Firstly, we’ll define a variety of activities, and identify networking opportunities that will help you to extend your reach within your industry. We’ll secure meetings for you with the key players and stakeholders you need to be talking to.
Finally, we host regular business engagement and networking events for all of our clients. These will be an outstanding opportunity for you to establish mutually beneficial relationships with other clients within Livewire’s portfolio. Take a look at our client list and you might even see some people you’ve been keen to talk to. Well, we’d be pleased to make the introductions.
The result will soon be far greater reach for you into your particular sector, through vastly expanded partner networks – with all of the long-term benefits that this will bring.
