In our latest Online Meetup with Network Pompey Business Club members, we were given rules to follow in a crisis from a former Head of Media and Corporate Communications at Hampshire Police, easy ways your business can save money on water bills, top HR tips and much more!

The session provided each attendee – on a one-by-one basis – the opportunity to talk about their businesses, share who their ideal client is, a success story, insightful industry tip and give us a fun fact about themselves.

Briscoe PRKevin Briscoe

Who is your ideal client/referrer? At the moment we’re working with companies in the legal, hospitality, aviation and leisure & tourism industries. However, we’re looking for any business that’s looking towards how they’re going to recover after this. Everyone needs PR as we’ve all got a story to tell and audience to reach.

What’s your industry tip? The rule always is: whenever there’s a crisis, find a way to draw a line in the sand. We’ve reached this point, now look at how we’re now going to move forward. How are you going to be able to be best positioned when we come out the other side of this and people are back to work. We’re offering free advice/help/support to any organisation!
