Leila & Geoffrey Communications offers a relaxed, friendly and professional approach to guide you through the world of publicity.

Whether you run creative projects, are a musician looking to build your fan-base, or a charity or small businesses looking to increase exposure, we have a range of ways to help you get noticed.

Good PR is essentially about communication. In the first instance, that means your ability to communicate with the communicators – the journalists, broadcasters, bloggers and vloggers.

We will show you:
• How to write a press release
• What journalists are looking for – and crucially what they’re NOT looking for
• What makes a story newsworthy
• Who to approach and how best to approach them
• How to build trust and integrity as the basis of a productive relationship with the media
