At Campus PR, our particular speciality is promoting research in the media. Whether it’s gaining front page coverage, slots on broadcast television or in-depth feature in key industry publications – we can help you, whatever discipline you work in. But it’s not all we do. We also provide content for websites, brochures and magazines; help clients with strategic planning around communications and impact; and we also share our expertise to build in house capacity, through a series of specialised training workshops.
We don’t think academics need to be media relations or communications experts but we do think that bit of specialist knowledge about communicating research and working with the media can help. We’ve developed a series of training workshops to help researchers learn the skills they’ll need, particularly given the demands for greater impact from research. We also run workshops for the press officers who have to do the rest, based on our expertise gained over many years of working in research promotion.
Working with Campus PR is a real joy. Their flexible but professional approach make our life easy. They have such a great intuition and can produce content based on a minimal brief, which is a skill in its own right.
You’ve been nothing but enthusiastic and skilful in your approach – especially in the training – and we’ve enjoyed working with you. You’ve left us much more able to share the valuable work we produce and much more confident in doing so.
We very much enjoy working with the Campus PR team on the press activities at our annual Congress. We can really rely on their expertise, they just know the drill. They are very flexible and, not unimportantly, also great fun to work with!
Your thoughtfulness and attention to detail have been such a help, indeed a saviour. We quite literally couldn’t have done this without you.
Many thanks for all your work over the past few months. It has been great working with you. The quality of your releases superb, everything is done efficiently, and basically – you have seamlessly fitted into the UCL Media Relations team!
Campus PR’s approach was entirely flexible to suit our needs and the team gladly accommodated last-minute changes. I highly recommend Campus PR for their high-quality work, good communication and excellent results.
I really appreciated your input – I felt in safe hands! I know my requests were a bit random at times but you responded beautifully and actually just knowing we could call on you was so helpful.
I cannot state highly enough how impressed we were with Campus PR. Sam and the team were so responsive, flexible, understanding and skilled in their expertise. We are delighted with the end result.
Thanks again for the incredible help you gave us in pulling together our REF submission. Your skill in drawing out the narratives and evidence has made it all so much stronger – we couldn’t have done it without you! I hope to get the chance to work with you again in the future.
Just to say that the science team are over the moon with the coverage, as are our funders! Thank you so much.
Flexible. Professional. Invaluable. Campus PR will always go the extra mile and act as a vital extension of the team. Above all, they are honest and trustworthy. If you want to talk through how and why we’ve worked with them, just drop me a line.
I was absolutely delighted that the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund Tissue Bank featured on the BBC News! This was a complex project to pull together – in particular co-ordinating and liaising between so many partner institutions and individual people. You did this with great patience and diplomacy and gave the Tissue Bank the best start we could have hoped for.
We’d been speaking to Smith & Nephew for a few years about working with us to commercialise the technology and we’d had some excellent publications on the research, but what got the company’s attention was the media coverage which Campus PR helped us achieve. The science on its own couldn’t do it – it was the publicity that clinched the deal.
Working with Campus PR has been a great experience. We had a huge amount of interest in our project, which raised the department’s profile and helped us with our post-doctoral recruitment.
This flurry of media interest was beyond my experience and it was great to have an expert voice guiding me and my colleagues. I’m grateful for the efficiency and warmth that you brought to this work.
Campus PR are the first PR company I have dealt with (and I have dealt with a few) who do not try to “dumb down” the story or sensationalise it.
We've been really pleased with the work you've done with engineering. It’s been a pleasure working with you all for so long and you've done some fantastic work for us.
