Our #CrackingClientCoverage for June!

Posted by LolaTagged ,

Every month we compile a few of our favourite #CrackingClientCoverage and social success stories – here are our picks for June.

City Year

Social mobility has been in the news this month with the report from the Social Mobility Commission. One of our clients, City Year UK, addresses the issue of social mobility head-on through their programme of placing volunteers in schools in deprived areas. On the back of this report, we secured two thought leadership pieces for Sophie Livingstone, the Chief Executive of City Year in The Independent and The Times Educational Supplement.

Meet Stand Agency’s… Katie Elliott!

Meet the newest member of the Stand Agency team!

How and why did you get involved in PR?

For me, it actually dates way back to my childhood days where I spent many hours sticking my very own newspapers and magazines together (so cool I know!). After embarking on a Multimedia Journalism degree, I knew I was destined to be a story teller. It wasn’t until I began working on the feature desks of regional newspapers and glossy lifestyle magazines and hearing from passionate PRs, that I realised my heart lies with the ‘dark side’. PR affords the opportunity to completely immerse yourself in an idea, a campaign or a client and see it come to life.

Meet Stand Agency’s… Grace French!

Posted by LolaTagged

Here’s a quick intro to our newest Senior Account Executive.

How and why did you get involved in PR?

I’ve always been fascinated by what makes people tick and how we engage with the world around us. I studied psychology at university, and when I finished my degree I was drawn to the variety and interactivity of PR. I wanted to work in a creative yet challenging environment that focuses on inspiring change, and PR was a great fit.

What drew you to Stand Agency?

I immediately felt so at home when I joined Stand. The passion that everyone has for the organisations we work with is so inspiring, and I love helping our clients towards positive change. It’s an incredibly supportive and encouraging environment; you’re given the opportunity to work on brilliant projects and you have so much fun whilst doing so.

After a year-long restoration in Southampton, Maiden will sail again as an ambassador for The Maiden Factor, fundraising for girls’ access to education across the globe.

We launched The Maiden Factor with a bang – and secured national broadcast coverage on BBC Breakfast, BBC News at One, The One Show, Sky News and there is still more to come… watch this space.
