While we’re more than happy to shout about our clients’ achievements, we were brought up to believe it’s never polite to boast about your own.
Instead, we’ll leave that to our clients.
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the work the Encore team has done on our behalf since your engagement with us in April 2013.
You will recall from our early meetings that some of my colleagues were a little sceptical as to the benefits of public relations programme. 18 months later and the story couldn’t be much more removed from that initial starting point.
Everyone who has become involved in the PR side of the business is very pleased with what we have achieved and is totally sold on the approach we now take.
From a personal point of view, I now fully understand that the timing and method of release of information is of huge importance and have witnessed first-hand the benefit of sticking to the plan: I don’t think it’s coincidental that the Prime Minister visited our stand at Farnborough Airshow – our messages of investment, employment creation, research and development and international co-operation have all played their part.
I also think the energy we’ve created using considered, strategic method is ten times that of an unplanned, ad-hoc approach. The fact that you and your team are all so professional, energetic and fun to deal with only makes the process so much easier. Thank you!

As a firm of solicitors that specialises in a number of areas of law and has many different personalities and PR requirements, straight off the bat Encore was able to spot a good story, making it current and interesting to our potential clients.
Their turnaround times and creative thinking are second to none and we have picked up work as a direct result of their coverage. Their knowledge of different media and thinking outside the box is exceptional and I have no doubts in their abilities as PR professionals.

We have found a true partner in Encore Communications. They have worked to gain a solid understanding of this early stage technology accelerator and it’s clear they are passionate about finding the right platforms for our brand and our founders. BetaDen has benefitted through the numerous media opportunities, bylined articles, and panel discussions Encore Communications has secured for us.
“They are always one step ahead in keeping the messaging clear and connected to the new audiences and ecosystem development being connected with our name. As a direct result, we’ve seen real impact for the cohort, wider tech communities and BetaDen. Thank you, Liz and all at Encore Communications!”

Liz (founder of Encore Communications) worked with me when I was Director of Regeneration and Enterprise at Birmingham Chamber of Commerce. She helped devise a new strategy and branding approach for my team.
Her work was extremely helpful in clarifying our direction and included an excellent brand identity and articles to help us capture thought leadership in our field.
I have no hesitation in recommending her for any kind of branding, marketing or strategy development work. She and the team developed a deep understanding of our goals and values and produced high quality work.
