Media Relations


Media Relations is about the relationship you build with journalists and editors to create positive coverage, benefit your business and reach desirable target audiences.

At the heart of effective media relations is good storytelling and targeted engagement.

Persuading the right journalists to cover your story delivers powerful benefits:

  • Builds brand awareness
  • Helps manage reputational crisis
  • Increases your credibility & trust rating
  • Provides authoritative third party endorsement
  • Develops lasting mutually beneficial relationships
  • More cost effective and persuasive than advertising

My clients have featured in leading national and international media outlets, across news, sports, travel and lifestyle, including The Guardian, Daily Telegraph, BBC News, ITV News, Sky Sports News, The Times, Independent, Daily Mail, London Evening Standard, Good Housekeeping and BBC Countryfile.

As a former journalist, Matthew Moore has a deep understanding of the media landscape, the skills, training, contacts and mentality needed to tell your story effectively and secure the media coverage you desire.

I can operate as your company press office and spokesperson or work as a strategic advisor to your in-house team.

I can develop an entire campaign, from first objective to final evaluation, or provide bespoke project-based support to suit a range of budgets and strategic objectives.
