Blakeborough PR is generally retained by clients for an initial period of one year, with a minimum period of notice of three months on either side.
We also undertake work on a project or adhoc basis as required. 

Regular conference calls are vitally important, both to enable us to update clients on our activities and to discuss new areas of opportunity. They also offer a forum to evaluate the success of the PR campaign.

“I've worked with Liz Blakeborough and her team for many, many years.
She's always been right on the ball and nothing phases her. I've rarely met a PR that understands her clients like Liz does.  
If you want something done quickly and efficiently, she totally gets it.”

“I deal with PR agencies around the world on a daily basis and without question Liz Blakeborough and her fabulous team rank among the best.
Liz’s deep understanding of publishing and media (both print and digital) means she’s is brilliant at tailoring stories to meet the needs of individual publications – there’s never a one-size-fits-all approach at Blakeborough. It means we’ve been able to work on bespoke, inspirational features that really resonate with our audience and for me it doesn’t get better than that.”
