Amplify PR writes headline-grabbing news releases and advises on how to deal with the media to raise your business profile and manage your reputation. Director, Lisa Preston is a former BBC journalist and so she understands news and what journalists expect. She draws on this strong background to offer an effective media relations service for clients and the best possible news coverage.

We work with clients ad-hoc or on a rolling monthly basis writing news releases and dealing with the media. Amplify PR can manage your news output or be an extension to your press office, helping to support your media relations activities. We provide expert consultancy advising on media relations, campaign planning, strategy and reputation management. We can also amplify your news further by integrating it with your wider communications, for example creating content suitable for sharing on social media.

Finally, we provide bespoke Media Training on a one-to-one or in a small group workshop. These sessions ensure that spokespeople are equipped with the skills and confidence to do successful print/online, radio and TV interviews.

“I wanted lots of people to know about my world record attempt, so I contacted Amplify PR. Lisa was extremely helpful, wrote the perfect news release and liaised with journalists on my behalf. My world-record attempt was on BBC and ITV local news, I was in all the local papers and magazines, and picked up on BBC News Online and by national newspapers. I’m hugely grateful for her amazing work and I highly recommend Lisa and Amplify PR.”
