Nottingham PR agency heads south of the river with office move

Nottingham PR agency Press For Attention PR has announced a move to a new base outside of the city in West Bridgford.

Set up in 2008 by former business journalist and published author on PR Greg Simpson, Press For Attention PR will be working from Bridgford Business Centre as soon as the lockdown is lifted.

The new location will play host to the agency’s PR and Marketing training academy, launching in the second half of the year.

Greg said: “I’ve been looking for a base that has the kind of flexibility I need in terms of meeting room hire and the adaptability to become a studio because I am creating a suite of training packages for businesses that will help them to generate their own PR results.

“A great deal of that will be delivered online of course, especially since we’ve all seen this training become the new ‘normal’ during lockdown but there will be some more advanced programmes that will be best delivered face to face.

“I could do that from a city centre address but to be honest, I think business owners and marketing managers will relish the opportunity to get away from the city-based office scene to do some planning and training on this specialist area of marketing. I will also be bringing in experts in other areas to help run the training and add further value to ensure everyone gets a fully integrated package that will really help to drive their marketing to new heights.”

Greg set up Press For Attention PR in 2008, just as the last recession began to really bite and whilst there are similarities again in terms of market uncertainty and the economy, Greg advises now is not the time to go quiet.

“You might say that I would say this, doing what I do for a living but the businesses that will survive and indeed thrive will be the ones who keep themselves visible and keep communicating.

“That doesn’t have to be focused purely on winning new business, it might be supplier relationships and stakeholder management and crucially, the messages you are sending out to employees, both current and future.

“PR is about how you are perceived by your key audiences and right now, more than ever, organisations need to make sure they are managing that as best they can.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £33.60 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
