A fast-growing PR agency is celebrating three new client wins from across Yorkshire.
The new wins for Leeds-based MacComms include tech, well-being and entertainment and are Leeds-based businesses BigChange, Tougher Minds and Victoria Gate Casino.
Victoria Gate Casino, the super casino of the north, commissioned MacComms to organise a PR stunt promoting its Festival of Football ahead of showcasing the World Cup matches on the largest TV screen in Leeds at its in-house Live Bar.
On Thursday 7th June, MacComms successfully executed a speed cage competition on Briggate, Leeds city centre, inviting members of the public and corporate teams to battle it out to shoot the fastest football.
MacComms has also been appointed to promote Tougher Minds, an award-winning, practical training consultancy that helps people to improve resilience, well-being and personal performance.
Headed up by psychology expert Dr. Jon Finn, Tougher Minds’ programmes use the latest neuroscience insights and have been recognised for their effectiveness. The MacComms team has been appointed to manage the media relations around Tougher Mind’s inaugural Leeds event having recently expanded into the city. The event will focus on teaching professionals how to create powerful teams and will be held above the offices of MacComms and Tougher Minds, in the Parkinson Suite of No1 Leeds on Thursday 21st June.
BigChange, launched in 2013 by founder and CEO Martin Port, has also appointed MacComms to provide support with promoting its events and supporting award entries.
A pioneering technology business based in Leeds, BigChange’s four-in-one mobile workforce and transport management platform combines CRM and job scheduling with mobile apps for drivers and technicians, plus real-time vehicle tracking. The technology is used by over 15,000 subscribers across 600+ SME and corporate clients. BigChange works out of the box, offering rapid implementation for any business.
Managing director Ellie comments:
“I’m really proud that MacComms has proven itself as a reputable company to help promote and manage the public and media relations of increasingly more impressive firms and the entrepreneurs behind them.
“Following our first successful stunt for Victoria Gate Casino’s first birthday party earlier this year, it was a pleasure to return to help them capitalise on the excitement which the World Cup brings.
I am Leeds-born and bred and think Leeds truly is a great place to live and work and we look forward to growing and supporting even more local businesses in the future.”
Hayley Smith, marketing manager at Victoria Gate Casino added:
“MacComms has delivered a second successful event for Victoria Gate Casino which saw us kick-off the football celebrations in Leeds, ahead of the World Cup. With the largest screen in the city, MacComms helped us to shout about that and engage and encourage local businesses and the public to enjoy the tournament in style in Live Bar.”
MacComms has a history of success, growing year-on-year and exceeding a turnover of £100,000 in 2017. The team is passionate about raising the profile of businesses in Yorkshire and recently expanded, recruiting Chris Rabbit as sales director and Sophie Nightingale as digital PR executive. The firm is also recruiting for more entrepreneurial thinkers to support MacComms’ ongoing growth.
