B2B communications creating change

All businesses want to create that edge – with their customers, their people, communities and advocates. Antonia Taylor PR embraces communications to help get them there. We look at where your business is, where you want to be,  and map out how PR will help you get there,  to elevate your profile and reputation, where it matters.

By truly understanding your business, we will find the right communications mix to work for your brand and to connect with your audiences. We are passionate about the impact effective PR can make on small, fast growing businesses.  Strategic, creative, adaptive, Antonia Taylor PR is a different kind of PR partner; one that delivers business edge.

What we do

Public relations campaigns

Understanding the complexities of communicating within the B2B marketplace, our approach focuses on the drivers specific to your business and how to build stakeholder engagement. We work closely with our clients to develop a PR strategy that is aligned with their marketing activity, supports business goals and delivers that return on investment.

A set of harmonised messages underpins effective communications programmes; articulating your vision and values is key to building brand advocacy. Working collaboratively, Antonia Taylor PR can help you identify and build clear messages to engage the media and shape the way your audiences relate to your business.

Antonia Taylor PR will work with you to design a successful event concept, engage the right speakers, shape content, and, of course, manage publicity.​

About Antonia Taylor PR

I love what I do. I love helping SMEs and start-ups grow through powerful communications. As a driven, passionate PR professional I have worked hard to build a fantastic client base working with some of the most inspirational and ambitious business owners and leaders in the Thames Valley.

Making the decision to set up my own business was about giving more back to my clients – better client service with a total focus on your business goals. Bringing the best value to you through creative strategies, flexible ideas and workable budgets.

I love PR too. As a profession I earned my stripes at a top 10 global agency, learning from colleagues who are now industry leaders. It’s also meant I can create and run a business that has helped me achieve professional success around my family and home life. It’s about choice and independence, having the freedom to work with brands I truly believe in, am inspired by and feel I can bring something to their success story.

In the bits around the edges, I discovered yoga – to bring balance back and help me breathe again.

"As part of our marketing strategies for this year we identified that we needed to enhance and create our awareness within the Thames Valley region. We were looking for someone locally with business to business PR experience. From the offset Antonia’s approach has been both refreshing and pragmatic. It’s obvious straight away that she has a wealth of experience and appreciates the challenges of getting yourself heard in the business to business space. Antonia also ran an excellent messaging workshop which helped us clearly identify the core messages we need to communicate. I would have no hesitation in recommending Antonia, in the few months we have worked with her she’s generated some excellent results and coverage."

Paul Macbeth, Macbeth Insurance

"Quite simply, working with Antonia has transformed my business. She is brimming with great ideas and has such a creative approach to her craft. Antonia is very much a fundamental part of our team and we couldn't have achieved the impact we have made without her. If you think PR is just about a press release you are missing the magic."

Louize Clarke, Founder, ConnectTVT and GROW@GreenPark

"We've now been working with Antonia for a year. In that time she's significantly improved our messaging, challenging us until it's strong and effective. We chose Antonia believing she would bring a fresh and creative approach – that's certainly been the case. We've also had more articles published than in last 12 years!"

Fiona Racher, Director, Business Development, Risk Decisions

"Antonia has provided PR support to FSP for three years. Her professional approach to PR and wider understanding of marketing in general has made her an asset to our team. Her particular skill, which we greatly value, is teasing out the true message in a story and focusing our minds on what our clients will want to know. Antonia has made a valuable contribution to FSP’s profile, in the press and online and we look forward to reaping the benefit of our continued relationship with her in the coming years"

Heidi Roberts, Operations Director, FSP
