About Candid Pr

Steve Wright and Emma Mortimer founded candid PR in 2009. Both worked at several big name PR firms before taking the plunge and quitting their secure agency jobs in the midst of the worst recession for a generation.

The company’s ethos has always been about offering straightforward advice and generating great results. If you want a PR company that spends your budget throwing glamorous parties, creating endless reports and billing you for their time rather than their results, then we’re not the firm for you.

But, if you want to raise awareness of your business or product, enhance your reputation, generate enquiries and ultimately grow your bottom line, then we can definitely help.

After we have wowed you with our amazing pitch, we won’t then disappear off into the sunset leaving you to deal with the work experience kid and we won’t need our hand holding throughout every project. We take pride in making your life as easy as possible and continually use our initiative and tenacity to get the job done, achieving superb results that will make your competitors weep green with envy.

We’re very cost-effective too. Bill Gates famously said if he was down to his last dollar, he’d spend it on PR, now in this day and age a dollar won’t get you very far, but our services are not as expensive as you might think.

We are also very flexible and can work on individual projects and well as ongoing campaigns, although it’s fair to say that the majority of our clients are retained ones, as they can see the value in the work we do and the fee we charge.

Now, if you’re still here, after reading all this, you might as well give us a call. We will come and have a chat, bring some examples of our work and let you know what we can do for you.

Did Ronaldo score an own goal by passing Coke bottles?

Our friends over at Kantar regularly share their research and insight reports with us about PR, social media and marketing, and one in particular caught our eye this month – not least because it’s (loosely) about football and landed right in the middle of the Euros!

Candid celebrates the art of giving gracefully – and not just at Christmas.

The Festive Season is almost upon us and for many, it’s an exciting time full of family, fun and frivolity, with the odd mince pie and secret Santa thrown in.  But, for some it can be a lonely time fraught with worry about how to afford the perfect Christmas often portrayed online and on TV. Worse still, there will be children living in Leeds and West Yorkshire who won’t get a single present on Christmas morning.
