Meet the members: Pearl Comms

Over the coming months we’ll be showcasing our members. First up, we talk to Pearl Comms a new PR agency.

Name: Pearl Comms Industry: Public relations Specialism: Corporate PR, professional services Workspace: Private Office 21.14 Team: Alia, Christine, Nick, Lucy and James Biggest weakness: Gin and beer   The story Pearl Comms is a new PR agency and proud of it. Born out of client demand to retain our service following the closure of our existing office, the Pearl Comms vision became a reality. As the ‘new agency on the block’, we have a point to prove, the bit between our teeth and a passion for delivering what many agencies fail to do – exceptional, honest, results-driven PR. Despite being just a few months old, we have the client roster, infrastructure and maturity of an established agency combined with the agility, innovative nature and energy of a start-up – it’s the best of both worlds for us and for our clients and we make no apologies for being ambitious. When we came to realise that our clients were giving us no choice but to set up a new agency, one of our first thoughts (other than whether we’d all lost the plot) was location and office space. Enter Alpha Works and Theresa’s team…   Their Alpha Works home From deciding to start the business, the team at Pearl Comms had about two weeks to set-up and get our house in order – literally.      
From trawling the city for office space, it became clear that nothing came close to what Alpha Works had to offer. From our first initial conversation with Theresa, to a sneak peek of the office space in its construction phase, we just knew that this was where Pearl Comms was meant to be. And, in the six months that we have been here, it has not disappointed. As a small team, we thrive on having the wider business community at our fingertips. We use the Hot-Desking spaces to support our network of freelancers, the meeting rooms to welcome our clients and the views from our office to restore some zen into our somewhat manic days. Not only are we proud to invite our clients to Alpha Works, but we are happy to call it our ‘home from home’ too. You can’t deny that the workspace looks great, but Alpha Works also delivers on its promise to bring like-minded businesses and individuals together with ease. Not only have we provided PR and communications advice to our neighbours, we have also picked up work too. Now that’s what we call being part of a community. The vision Aside from world domination… We are PR pros, wordsmiths at heart and as the lines of demarcation blur across the communications world, many agencies are trying their hand at the entire marketing arsenal, but few are managing it. We have recognised that many clients want PR specialists, not generalists and that is exactly what Pearl Comms provides. We act as guardians of our clients’ reputations across all written and verbal communications and specialise in delivering unrivalled media results. Thanks to Alpha Works, we don’t just sound the part, we look the part too!
