Who we are
Duncan Thorne founded the eponymous agency in 2008.
His career began with postgraduate training at The Times and The Journalism Centre, Harlow College – Britain’s oldest journalism school – before working at Guardian newspapers and freelancing nationally.
He went on to manage communications for Bradford Council’s Executive and Cabinet covering a range of high-profile campaigns and crisis management issues at national and international levels.
His editorial work regularly appears in a variety of leading titles in the national, regional, B2B and B2C media across print, online, radio and television.
This, along with knowing how to convert business messages into stories the media will use, plays a crucial role delivering outstanding results for clients.
What we do
We offer a highly organised, professional service that delivers results every month, year-on-year for all our clients.
Excellent people skills are a key part of our offering.
We operate at the most senior level directly alongside chief executives, directors and owner-managers to set the agenda before working closely with departmental staff to deliver on the strategy.
We do this by providing a clear-eyed, common sense approach that is well thought through.
An agency of strong independent financial standing with high quality management standards, we operate transparently with clear targets and measures in place to offer an outstanding return on investment.
Our reputation providing compelling editorial content means the media turns to us first for news, comments and reaction pieces all to the benefit of our clients.
We build long-term partnerships with our clients.
Our longest include Liverpool Mutual Homes (now Torus) since 2008, from 2011 with JV North and 2014 with G&H Group.
