What do our clients think of our PR and marketing services?
Head of marketing services, Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland
“Unhooked Communications has brought a depth of technical understanding of our topic matter, which explores how the built environment impacts our comfort, health and wellbeing. The team’s ability to empathise with our audience and create content that strengthens our marketing activity has been excellent.”
Head of Marketing, Häfele UK
"Unhooked Communications has helped us make a real impact on our PR communications. They were able to hit the ground running as they already had a wealth of experience in the construction industry. They used this knowledge as the foundation for a strategy day, setting us on the right path to create stand out in our PR. Since then, they have worked with us as part of our team, supporting us throughout."
Business Development Director, The Translation People
"Unhooked Communications set up a PR strategy day with a mix of different people from within our company. The aim of the day was for them to develop a greater understanding of our business and how to set our business apart from others in the market. They asked some very thought-provoking questions and ran some very interesting team activities which allowed them to get an in-depth overview of our business and our USPs. The day was also very enjoyable and motivating for all those involved. This has, in turn, informed the PR activities that they have organised and allowed us to present key messages in front of our target audience, raising our profile in different sectors and with different job roles."
Managing director, Expo Stars Interactive
“After having interviewed several PR agencies, when we met Unhooked Communications, it was very clear they were the right choice for us. From the offset, they knew exactly what we needed after taking a lot of time to understand our business and industry. The team has already gained a lot of 'money can’t buy' exposure for us in our industry press, business media, got us shortlisted for a business award, and even managed to get a quote in a BBC Online article. Claire from Unhooked is very professional, easy to work with, and gets on with the job passionately. Unlike some PR agencies, when it comes to delivering results, Unhooked definitely walks the talk. Very highly recommended!"
Founder, Freeflush Rainwater Harvesting
“We've worked with Unhooked Communication to increase our brand recognition and online traffic through media relations and earned media. Unhooked is easy to work with, jumped on the task straight away, prepared and circulated press releases, and followed up to gain us some national exposure on a limited budget. The projects have been finalised with a report showing where exposure was gained and an indication of impact. Good communication and results."
Communications director, Forget Me Not
“I brought Claire from Unhooked Communications in right at the start of our exciting plans to open our new children’s hospice. Very quickly it was clear to me she just ‘got it’. She didn’t behave like a consultant, she became part of the team and someone who I could quickly rely on to be my eyes, ears and most importantly my voice. Given how stretched I was, my briefs were always rushed and unplanned but I talked to Claire about my idea or what I needed to achieve and she came to me with the creative ideas and the most detailed, task orientated, measureable plans I’d ever seen."
Director, Holland Harvey Architects
“Unhooked Communications just ‘got it’! They interpreted our brief accurately and helped evolve a narrative to communicate our work – securing coverage in a number of high quality publications. This in turn helped us to broaden our presence within the industry. Unhooked is intuitive, professional and thorough – and leaves you confident you are in good hands.”
Operations manager, Naylor & Fay
“Unhooked Communications has given us focus on where to direct our efforts to achieve maximum impact as a start up business. Through the team’s writing and contacts we have managed to be highlighted and selected for magazine entries over several big name magazines, contributing to our brand awareness. We really enjoy working with Unhooked and look forward to the ideas and projects we have in store for the future.”
Managing director, Jack Badger
“Working with Unhooked Communications is a pleasure. They offer a very professional and thorough service and their in-depth knowledge of the industry has given us a big advantage to us as a small company, and allows us to reach a wider audience than would be possible without their support.”
Owner, Mander Wellbeing
“I worked with Claire from Unhooked to increase brand awareness and raise my profile as a new business and I was quickly featured in national and trade media talking about employee wellbeing and mental health in the workplace. They’re very knowledgeable, professional and really approachable, so it was a pleasure working with them.”

What do attendees of our PR workshops and training think?
Managing director, Toast PR
“Claire from Unhooked Communications is at the top of her game on influencer marketing. She led an informative and enlightening session for the team at Toast PR with bang up to date examples and insights that have helped shaped our thinking on both current and future client briefs. I’d recommend working with her without hesitation.”
"As a newbie to influencer marketing and to some extent social media for business I found Claire's course really useful. It really opened my eyes as a business owner on how I can not only access and use influencers to promote my business but also how I can effectively influence my own audience online. Claire gave lots of practical examples and links to useful resources that have helped me develop a much better understanding of our online presence in terms of engagement and influence. I would definitely recommend."
Designer and founder, Creative Wilderness
“As a designer I’ve really enjoyed attending an Influencer marketing workshop, which out of my usual field. I’ve picked up tips I can use for my own business and started thinking about how I can use PR, podcasts and blogs to promote my own business.”
Creative director, betternotstop, and director, Stag and Raven
“I went to one of Claire's influencer marketing workshops, which was well researched with lots of tangible takeaways and resources. I have two businesses and work with both with brands and bloggers. The workshop explained influencer marketing so it was clear to see the benefits to both parties, and also how to succeed and create great partnerships. I was introduced to lots of new research ideas and methods which will really benefit my business. It was also a great way to network and discuss solutions and ideas that would directly help my business grow."
Katie Brewin Communications, freelance communications & public relations consultant, copywriter and editor
“Another great-value workshop, this time on influencer marketing, from Claire at Unhooked Communications. This session helped me appreciate what I do know, while at the same time learning more. Claire is a very engaging speaker and packs her training with practical information and advice. She's also honest and open in her approach. Highly recommended.”
“Claire from Unhooked Communications is a really engaging speaker – clear, practical, funny and full of really smart advice.”
