What we do

Based in Glasgow, our experienced team designs and delivers integrated communications programmes and campaigns throughout Scotland, across the UK and internationally.

Spreng Thomson offers a range of services to help your organisation communicate effectively and you can find a flavour of them below and in our work section.

Communications and media strategy

We have a vast amount of experience in corporate communications, with our team working with high profile listed businesses and private organisations very much in the media spotlight. From communications around annual and interim results, takeovers, mergers, disposals and acquisitions, turnaround plans and IPOs, we’ve done it all. Your corporate communications are in very safe hands.

Media relations

We love talking to the media. Between us, we’ve built up a strong network of contacts across the media, whom we speak with regularly. We can devise a media relations strategy and public relations campaign for your organisation, helping you to target the right media and ensuring you get your messages across. We’re equally at home responding to press enquiries on a reactive basis, running a press office and dealing with any media storms.

Media training

Many businesses find themselves in the media spotlight and your spokespeople need to be equipped to deal with any interview or press conference situation and effectively represent your organisation. We offer a bespoke media training package to help you carry out media interviews – print and broadcast – with clarity and confidence, helping to deliver great results. We use a fully equipped studio in Glasgow so the media training replicates the real life scenarios that you might face.

Brand building

Spreng Thomson has developed a proven brand building process called BuildMyBrand® with our design partners Graven. Over the last three years we have supported over 100 organisations with our BuildMyBrand® process and have had 100% positive feedback from participants including major international businesses, leading government agencies, high growth businesses and leading third sector organisations. Using our tried and tested process we can help you to build your brand and support your business to grow.

Social media

Social media is an important, if not essential part of the communication mix for most of our clients and we provide the full range of social media support from monitoring and reporting to planning social media campaigns. We can help you not only to understand how this medium works but also how you can harness it to protect and build your reputation through establishing an online community.

Crisis communications

When it hits the fan, you need to be in a position to deal with the issue at hand without getting distracted by any media storm that blows up around you. We can take the strain on your behalf, freeing up your management time to deal with the issue and get things back to normal as soon as possible. We’ll act as your spokesperson if necessary, handle media enquiries and advise you on how to minimise any reputational damage along the way.

PR campaigns

If you have a story to tell, we can help you tell it. If you have a product or service to launch, we’ll work with you to create a launch plan. We can organise and promote your event. We’ll execute any plan with creativity and we’ll be clever in our targeting and evaluation, ensuring we deliver results.

Stakeholder relations

Good communication is the key to building positive relationships with everyone who’s important to the success of your organisation and we can help you develop a plan to ensure you are engaging with the right people at the right time and in the right way.

Facilitation and consultation

We’re highly experienced in designing and facilitating workshops and consultation events ranging from six to more than 100 participants. Our team has excellent facilitation skills and we work hard to ensure our sessions are well-planned, constructive, enjoyable and allow everyone taking part the opportunity to express their views.
