Having established our presence in the region in 2016, our Yorkshire & East team provides a full range of communications and creative services. We’re based in Leeds and are well networked and politically astute, combining local expertise with national reach for our clients. We’re passionate about the future of our region and you’ll often hear us banging the drum for the north.
With a strategy first approach, we work in partnership with our clients to set ambitious targets that will make a positive difference. We use our creative spark, communications expertise and many years’ experience working in the region to devise and deliver award winning campaigns. And our focus on evaluation means we are continually looking for new ways to evolve, improve and deliver maximum return for our clients.
With expertise spanning property, transport, education, infrastructure, local government and culture, our talented team cover four specialist areas of service:
- Strategy – delivering sprint workshops, providing senior counsel and shaping communications plans.
- PR & Marketing – from high-impact campaigns to fully integrated marcomms plans.
- Campaigns – influencing behaviour change, investment decisions and government policy.
- Consultation & Engagement – face-to-face and digital-first engagement with local and national audiences.
Social have been great to work with. They are pro-active, thoughtful and a key part of our team securing planning consents in a timely manner. They successfully combined online and face-to-face consultation with stakeholders and have a detailed understanding of the region’s political landscape enabling us to talk with the key players quicker.Tom Wheldon Director & Head of Region, HBD
“We could see huge market potential for our products in one specific market and approached Social to help us build our strategy for entering that market. Through the Strategy Sprint they delivered for us, we got access to expert insights from leading figures within the market and understood how to pitch ourselves as problem-solvers for the key issues they faced. The strategy on a page that Social produced gave us clear direction on where to focus our energies as a small business, and a set of powerful messages to launch our product offer at a high-profile industry conference just six weeks later.”Simon Weeks CEO, Ciptex
