What We Do

Weber Shandwick Manchester

Our Manchester team specialises in all areas of communications from corporate to consumer, issues management, tech and digital and the office has dedicated teams across a range of practice areas.

CONSUMER MARKETING

The mission of Weber Shandwick Manchester’s consumer practice is simple: to incite consumer action and drive change, whether that be sales, behaviour or reputation.

Our team gives clients access to world-class planning, creative, production and delivery. This enables us to ensure expertly-crafted, strategic campaigns that influence consumer behaviour and deliver business impact across sectors including food and drink, health and beauty, household products, FMCG, retail and fashion, travel, automotive and consumer technology.

CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS

Corporate reputation is both more important and vulnerable than ever. In a communications environment defined by real-time information, 24/7 commentary, fake news and unprecedented activism, remaining silent is not an option.

Weber Shandwick Manchester’s team of corporate communications experts work with colleagues around the globe to help companies tell compelling, integrated stories that engage stakeholders, to build, manage and protect reputations.

Our corporate practice brings together experts in reputation management, public affairs, investor relations, employee engagement, digital and CSR into a unique and integrated offer in Manchester.

CRISIS & ISSUES MANAGEMENT

From natural disasters to complex litigation, the crisis and issues affecting organisations can happen at any moment and Weber Shandwick Manchester’s specialists are on-hand 24/7 to provide expert advice and support whenever it’s needed.

We work with clients to prepare for all potential outcomes, work-shopping scenarios to enable spokespeople to address serious challenges from the media, politicians, consumers and NGOs.

Led by Chairman  Jon McLeod and Managing Director, Heather Blundell, our team provides a fully integrated, seamless corporate communications offer.

DIGITAL, CONTENT AND SOCIAL MEDIA

Weber Shandwick Manchester’s team of digital and social media experts have a proven track-record of delivering award-winning work, recognised at both a national and international level for its ability to drive mass awareness and truly authentic engagement.

To build vibrant communities, we create targeted content that engages audiences where they live, whatever the channel or device.

Supported by 500 in-house digital, production and social media practitioners around the globe, our Manchester team seamlessly integrates with its public relations colleagues to deliver progressive, innovative campaigns that drive our clients’ businesses forward.

TECHNOLOGY COMMUNICATIONS

No longer only of interest of niche, forward-thinking audiences, technology impacts the lives and consumption habits of the masses making it a dynamic and challenging sector for PR and marketing.

Our technology communications team supports clients in navigating this fast-paced landscape through brand strategy, integrated engagement campaigns that are measured and adapted as quickly as the sector changes and develops.

From start-ups to multinationals, the Manchester office services clients across disciplines including professional and financial services, consumer goods, education, manufacturing to name a few.
