Vibrant PR for Vibrant Brands and Businesses

Catapult PR has been one of the north west's best PR firms for two decades. We've also been one of the most successful regionally-based public relations companies in Britain over those 20 years. We continue to delight customers because we passionately care about their businesses or organisations. To our clients we are "more than just a PR agency".

We employ our in-depth PR expertise in a hugely creative manner, whether it's for a business-to-consumer traditional PR campaign, a digital PR campaign, or a B2B strategy. We don't provide off-the-shelf ideas. Everything is personalised to the individual client, to the nth degree.

Our creative thinking has been described as "outstanding" with very good reason. Ideas allow our campaigns to box above their budgetary weight. Our clients have great expectations and we're always focused on exceeding them.

We're so dedicated to delivering vibrant PR, engaging content and persuasive copy for clients of all sizes, in Lancashire, across Britain and in Europe too, we get little opportunity to blow our own trumpet. Luckily, our incredible awards record shouts about our successes and our clients speak for us. Over 75% of our business comes from word-of-mouth recommendation. Our clients are our most vocal advocates.

Catapult PR Managing Director Jane Hunt

Managing Director: Jane Hunt

When I founded Catapult PR in March 1998, there was no digital PR - there wasn't even any Internet or email. Research meant studying microfiche in Manchester Central Library. Issuing press releases meant photocopying, sealing envelopes and sticking on stamps.

This is one of the reasons why I am so proud of Catapult PR, as our expertise has transcended the emergence of different marketing channels and proved that great digital PR is just great PR down different distribution channels. Our awards record shows that we've taken on every new market challenge and triumphed. My background in insurance, the Utilities, catering - even my time as an Executive Secretary in the City - has been used to shape Catapult's DNA and make us strong.

Catapult PR's longevity is impressive. I'm not sure there are any other agencies still in existence in the north west, which were on the scene with us back in 1998. We've evolved and embraced every new challenge and it's stood us in good stead. 29 prestigious awards (national and regional), over the course of 19 years, isn't bad, is it? We shall be aiming for many more, after we've turned 20. It's our reward for working so very hard.
