New Account Exec Joins Tasty PR Agency Offering Free Advice Across Leeds In Chocolate Week
Creative results focussed, Leeds based agency, Chocolate PR has appointed Account Executive Rebecca Campbell as the agency grows their media relations and event management team to expand their scope of delivering tasty creative solutions.
To celebrate Rebecca’s arrival and the success of their consultancy days, and to widen the offer even further, Chocolate PR launched their 'tasty advice day' during Chocolate Week (12 -16 October) offering free advice to local restaurant owners and catering businesses across Leeds.
Targeting the sector most affected by the recession, Rebecca is using her past experience of working in the hospitality sector to offer advice to local restaurant owners on how they can get noticed through PR. Hoping to lift the spirits of the local business community, Rebecca has chosen the restaurant sector after reports showed they accounted for 45% of all business failures in the three months before Christmas 2008, and therefore would be the most in need of support at this time of year.
One business owner keen to make the most of the offer was Leeds based chef and Box Pizza owner James Sturdy, who said: “We have taken on board many of Chocolate PR’s ideas and are great believers in trying something new and adapting. We are also currently expanding in the recession after having widened our offer to be more corporate so can now provide businesses with outside catering services as well offering the original takeaway service.”
Rebecca joins the Chocolate PR team in Leeds from Bradford based Approach PR where she was Junior Account Executive for 1 year. As Account Executive, Rebecca will be getting involved in all client accounts and letting her creative juices flow in the PR and events departments.
Rebecca said: “When I heard about this position I knew it was for me. The agency is really ambitious and to be involved in a new and innovative project where the sky is the limit is a really exciting prospect for me. The 'tasty advice day' is a great chance for me to use my experience and knowledge of the hospitality sector to help Restaurant owners who are struggling as customers reduce their spending and businesses cut back on corporate entertaining in time for Christmas.”
Chocolate PR offer a range of services from consultancy, media relations, events, marketing, copywriting, and have recently launched social media services to support clients with their online profiles and campaigns.
Jo Swann, Managing Director of Chocolate PR said: “The last 3 months have been a bit of a whirlwind. We've taken on Rebecca and moved into larger offices- It's great to see that people are finally appreciating the power of PR. The recession for us has actually opened doors to people considering PR for the first time as it is a cost effective tool for promotion. Our results focussed approach means that clients can rely on us to deliver great things and to budget, and this is being valued at the moment.”
