Raising profiles through PR
Famous Publicity is a boutique PR consultancy with brilliant clients. We raise the profile of people, brands, businesses and charities. We take a hands-on approach, as well as being strategic and will aim to do all tasks in a timely way. We love the challenge of a tight deadline.
The agency is proudly small and works with friends in other complimentary disciplines to deliver the best results for clients. When we buy in external services, we don’t charge any mark-up, which is just one of the reasons why we have excellent client and supplier relationships. The agency’s founder, Tina Fotherby, worked in house for four years with the retail magnate and star of BBC TV’s Dragons’ Den, Theo Paphitis, prior to setting up the agency. She learned that high standards go a long way to helping people succeed in a competitive marketplace.
We have some famous clients but we don’t restrict our work to celebrities. The business name is tongue in cheek as few people choose to be famous. Most people simply want recognition within their peer group. Not everyone wants to be king of the jungle. They might simply want to develop their business further. We have some wonderful retained clients and we also love project work for the variety it provides. We are equally happy working with B2C, B2B and not-for-profit clients. We have strong experience in the professional services field and enjoy supporting lawyers and accountants.

But could it be that many of us have been hoodwinked into thinking we are doing well by recycling when, in fact, we should…
What’s driving us away from walking?
In some cases, the reason we choose to drive rather than to walk is obvious and logical – the distance is too great to walk. Often, though, the only explanation seems to be apathy. The truth is that driving can actually cause more of a headache than simply walking with petrol prices soaring, parking spaces…
