Who are we?

We are boutique PR
done the excellent way

Big-name agency skills and experience, but delivered with the passion and attention to detail of the artisan’s atelier.

We are an independent company specialising in communications consultancy since 2010. We have built our business on understanding the specific requirements of clients in all sectors, of all sizes and nationalities, and on supporting them with services that are truly made to measure and capable of delivering genuine returns.

If you want to get your brand known or reinforced, we can help with that. If you want to promote your offering, grow your business, differentiate yourself from your competitors, establish yourself as a thought leader in your sector, protect your reputation, or raise your profile for fundraising purposes, we can help with all that too. And much more besides!

Our professionalism, teamwork ethos and focus on results – and above all our unique style of working – enable us to combine strategic thinking with quality execution. And for projects with special professional or technical requirements, our network of proven, trusted partners enables us to take responsibility for addressing all your needs, fully and seamlessly.

BMP also has significant international experience and has become, in turn, a referral partner for communications agencies in many other countries where our clients operate, including France, UK, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, US and Israel.
