About Us

 


PR with Perkes is a boutique style PR agency that works with fiercely ambitious entrepreneurs who are ready to step away from the mundane and into the magnificent.

We prides itself on being able to deliver the results that clients require: getting featured in the press. But not just once. Over and over and over again.

Public Relations isn’t a one-and-done. You don’t get featured once and then become the next best thing since sliced bread. Uh-huh honey, it takes strategic thinking, it takes intentional positioning. And it takes a super strong message that not only gets journalists banging down your door, but gets your ideal clients and customers investing in themselves and buying from you.

Public Relations exists to protect a brand’s biggest asset: it’s reputation. But how do you build a reputation when no-one knows about you? That’s where we come in.

Our combined talents help to accelerate you to where you want to go. They build your authority, create notoriety and allow you to deliver the transformational results to even more people, often on a global scale.

Laura

Founder and
self-confessed
Pitch Bitch

 
 

Founder and self-confessed Pitch-BitchPublic Relations has been in Laura’s blood since before she was legally allowed to drink. Having studied PR and Media Studies at Exeter University, you could say that it’s her superpower.

And you wouldn’t be wrong.

She believes that connection and communication are at the heart of everything that we do. Building relationships is fundamental to being hot or not in the PR world. Luckily she has the gift of the gab and knows exactly how to get what she wants.

A networking Ninja - Laura has the ability to spot raw talent and bring specialists into the agency when necessary.

While she’s the leader of the pack at PR with Perkes, she’s very much ruled by her three French Bulldogs: Frank, Tiger and Poppy, (AKA ‘The Shitbags’, who you’ll no doubt get to meet on Zoom calls, whether you want to or not!

A huge fan of pizza and strength & conditioning workouts, you’ll often find her wide awake at 2am, buzzing with new ideas.
 

Superpowers:

 

Strategic thinking
Idea generation
Forward thinking
Being disruptive

Sarah

 
 

Sarah ripped up the rulebook in 2017 and quit her corporate job to be able to work in flow and create a freedom life full of laughter, joy and magical energy.

An intuitive and Reiki Energy Master, Sarah specialises in working in ‘flow’. The 9-5 ‘norm’ just isn’t a thing in Sarah’s world, and we love that she’s paving the way for others who no longer want to conform to societal norms as it no longer serves them.

Her mission is to teach and guide others to share their stories, without fear, on their terms.

She very much specialises in her own brand of magic based, conscious PR and communications, created around a big vision, mission and purpose.

Mum of two gorgeous little girls, so knows exactly how to multitask like a boss!

Self-development and self-awareness

Meet Hannah

Meet
Hannah

 
 

Earning herself the nickname ‘The Badger’, Hannah is one of the most tenacious people you will ever meet.

With an eclectic mix of clients under her belt, Hannah is what you’d call an all-rounder, rolling up her sleeves and creating media magic, whoever and whatever that’s for.

2019 saw her take a short break from the hustle and bustle of agency life, in order to move her life to another part of the country and start a family. During this time she realised that the ‘lady of leisure’ Mum life didn’t suit her and she missed the buzz of being at an agency.

Now she’s back at her best and utterly loving life.

 

Superpowers:

 

Being a drama queen (trust me, this is a good thing!)
Writing epic press releases and pitches
Being tenacious
Having firm boundaries

Meet dog

Meet
the 'Shitbags'

 
 

Frank, Tiger and Poppy are the driving force behind the naughty and mischievous side of PR with Perkes.

With an incessant desire to be the centre of attention, they each know how to raise their profile and use their voices to get what they want.

When not sleeping they’re playing, fighting, barking, and generally being a nuisance while mummy is trying to appear all professional on Zoom calls!

    Laura was a PR breath of fresh air, away from all those “blue skies” PR chat we’d seen a million times before. She got immediate local impact, and it was like working with a friend!
    Would recommend Laura to anyone.

    I love how Laura approaches the topic of PR. She understood what I wanted and made sure the PR campaign was in alignment with my brand.  She totally got that the message was more important than simply being in a magazine.

    Laura really understood my business needs and created a PR campaign that ticked all the right boxes. She helped to raise the profile of the brand which led to more people attending classes and more fitness professionals wanting to become BalletBeFit instructors.
