What we do

PLMR BIRMINGHAM IS A DYNAMIC COMMUNICATIONS AGENCY, DELIVERING PR, PUBLIC AFFAIRS, STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT AND DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS

Based in Birmingham, we serve clients across the Midlands region in sectors including property, infrastructure, health, social care and education.

Our team includes genuine specialists across both sectors and specialisms so we can support our clients across all aspects of their external communications. 

We work closely with the wider PLMR Group to ensure our clients have access to dynamic teams with the experience necessary to deliver on the most complex and sensitive of briefs.

Public and Media Relations

PR is constantly evolving. We get to know our clients and never lose sight of the strategic objectives. We produce and implement strong PR strategies and discover the best stories, so that we can secure the right media coverage, both online and offline.

Our team has the media contacts and the relationships, at both national and local level, and we know exactly what journalists are looking for. We help organisations gain exposure in national media, local press or trade publications, become thought leaders, attract the best employees, and spark conversations. 

Public Affairs

Increasingly, decisions are being made at the local and regional level. Whether through councils or Combined Authorities, the decisions which impact business and economic growth are the subject of a complex web of decision makers.

We understand local and regional institutions, especially across the Midlands, how decisions are made, why they are made and who is making them. PLMR Birmingham supports our clients to engage with the issues and ensure the vision and priorities are understood.

Our Birmingham team works closely with our colleagues in Westminster to also support clients engage with Whitehall, Parliament and the political parties. In turn, we support PLMR Group’s national and international client base engage with institutions across the Midlands – helping to deliver positive change and investment in our region. 

 

Planning Communications

When delivering change, particularly for development and regeneration projects, it is vital that stakeholders are consulted to positively influence the outcome. We advise and work with our clients to identify key stakeholders and work with them to build support for change. This includes councillors, MPs, parish councils, local interest groups, residents and businesses.

Led by a detailed understanding of how stakeholder groups think and operate, we deliver targeted messages using a range of communications channels – including digital, public exhibitions, workshops and meetings. Working closely with our in-house digital team we work hard to remain at the cutting edge of communications to better support our clients and secure support for change.

Digital Marketing

Our world is digital and more than ever people expect to communicate using digital channels. Whether its social media, website development, video production, animation and video or graphic design our in-house digital team is at the cutting edge of communication trends and technology.

This cuts across all sectors and specialisms and we support our clients to deliver outstanding websites, engaging social media campaigns and innovative consultation strategies.

Crisis Communications

Your reputation is the most valuable sales tool for your business. It sets you apart from your competitors and gives your clients confidence. However, in this age of fast moving communications, reputations can be undone in days – after years of careful building.

Our specialists in crisis communications help you prepare and manage a crisis, should it arise. We ensure media protocols are in place and senior representatives are media trained and prepared. When a crisis hits, we engage with the media, and advise our clients, so your reputation is protected.

Video & Animation

Social media and digital communications are fast becoming the principle tool of any engaging campaign. Our expert video and animation team can create graphic and short animations for social media, as well as longer promotional films to be used in presentations or online.

We have recently been working with Virgin Media to produce content for their fitness TV channel by creating the Daley Fitness programme alongside double-Olympic medallist, Daley Thompson.
