Businesses in Northumberland are being offered a new voice after two communications specialists joined forces.
Andrew Lambert, director of Cramlington-based Newsmaker PR and Video Production, and Nick Kemp, head of public affairs company NKA, have teamed up to offer individual businesses the direct routes to decision-makers.
Former BBC Look North editor Andrew said: “Businesses here have strong stories to tell, but they need to be seen and heard by the right people who, increasingly, are not based here.”
Nick added: “The Chancellor has made it clear that major Government funding for vital services, such as housing and transport, will only happen if there is an elected mayor representing all or a large part of the north east.
“For that to happen long-standing rivalries will have to be put aside.
“In the meantime there is a very real danger the region will be stuck in a void which will take years to get out of.”
NKA advises a number of north east organisations, including the Centre for Process Innovation and Careline Lifestyles, one of the UK’s leading providers of specialist care, on strategic communications.
Andrew added: “Nick and I will work with businesses to ensure their communications strategies deliver their objectives.
“We will help them develop key messages, identify who they want to reach and provide high quality content to engage those stakeholders.”
