About Us & Our PR Team

Find out more about the London PR agency behind the headlines.

Palamedes PR is a no-nonsense, award-winning London PR agency that is run and staffed by former national news, features and broadcast journalists.
Together, we draw on our collective experience on some of Britain’s largest newsdesks to create great consumer-focused content that captures the attention of the print, digital and broadcast media. Since 2009, we’ve generated thousands of pieces of TV, radio, national press and magazine coverage for our clients globally. Many of their stories became overnight talking points and, through national press coverage and televised platforms like Daybreak, The One Show, Have I Got News for You, Mock the Week and others, reached hundreds of millions of people worldwide.

WE DO HEADLINES…AND LOTS OF THEM

We’re best known as the UK market-leader in book PR, for our award-winning, high-profile consumer PR and tourism PR campaigns, and for our powerful reputation management capabilities.

But we provide PR support to any brand, organisation or individual looking for mass media coverage, regardless of sector. In fact, we’re commonly engaged by those whose existing PR agency failed to deliver the headlines that were promised. From charity causes (like the one that Noel Edmonds, left, is kindly helping us with for Samaritans), government departments and tourist boards to publishers, restaurants, SMEs, corporations and celebrities, we can almost always help.

We go against the grain of other PR agencies because our clients receive first-class service without the usual bullsh*t. Our publicists, Jon Kirk and Doug Shields, are prizewinning former national news journalists who have worked at the Sunday Times, Sun, National Enquirer, SWNS, Splash News and Sunday People. We won’t use fluffy buzzwords, Darling; we’re not hipster graduates fresh out of university; and we never offer PR campaigns that sound fantastic but which are are unlikely to secure column inches. This no-nonsense, journalistic approach to public relations gives our clients a commercial advantage by influencing consumers and driving product sales.
