We offer full brand messaging workshops to help you identify the key elements of your product, service or personality to ensure it is as credible to the most junior staff as it is in the boardroom. We utilise data-led insight to identify the characteristics and capabilities of who you are and want to be and which messages will resonate with your key audiences. Once your message reflects the core of your brand, it will allow you to navigate even the most testing situations.


What makes your company different is vital. Being positioned correctly is as important as your key messages.

As with strategy and messaging, PHA works closely with clients to understand their position in the market and then define PR output from it.

Many key messages will stem from this positioning and will help define the story-telling aspects of a campaign.

Getting it right is vital, not only for market position but also in speaking to journalists who want to see what is different about your company or idea as opposed to the hundreds of others they are approached by for coverage.

As well as your own research, PHA will conduct full analysis of your competitive landscape, including the sShare of vVoice they enjoy, how they have achieved that and how we can help you respond.
