Sherlock PR doesn’t rest until your case has been solved.
We See PR a Bit Differently. We Deliver Exceptional Results.
Sherlock is an authentic and personable Worthing based consultant who is committed to being the most efficient provider of PR services to the professional services industry.
There are not many PR consultants out there who can lay claim to having had four, seemingly unpromising stories on behalf of clients, on the front page of the national press.
Sherlock ensures that its clients initiate debates and become part of some the biggest stories in the business world.
By constantly being alive to opportunities, this – often labelled ‘media hound’ – has a personality that reflects the investigative nature of the PR industry. Sherlock won’t stop until the case has been solved.

We Get Results
Bishop’s Move is the UK’s largest family owned removals & storage company. Founded in 1854 and run by the sixth generation of Bishop’s, the company celebrated its 160th year in business in 2014. As part of the on-going campaign we would position Bishop’s Move’s core values and strong family ethics within mainstream media investigating one of the property market’s hop topics – the Help to Buy scheme. We would look to promote the company and its 22 regional branches and franchises across the UK as forward thinking and championing first time buyers. The upshot was that we discovered the formula for a very successful campaign which has continued into 2015.
Based in Steyning, West Sussex, Russell New is a firm of business, tax and charity advisors which provides services to small and medium sized businesses, private clients, trusts and charities. We looked to make an immediate impression with the firm in 2011 and ensure that the company became part of some debates that impacted its customers. Within the first two weeks and with no prior media profile, the firm was featured in: Financial Mail on Sunday, CityWire, Crawley Observer, West Sussex County Times, The Guardian. This momentum has carried on throughout the campaign. We positioned the firm as a leading commentator on all national tax and economic issues whilst at the same time secured various by-lined opportunities for Russell New to demonstrate its work with charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Retail Human Resources
RHR is the oldest and largest recruitment company specialising specifically in the retail sector. The company approached Sherlock PR to help promote an internal process which is aligned with one of the most debatable topics in recent years – the gender pay gap. Since its foundation in 1988, RHR has held a completely open salary policy which builds trust and respect, and ensures that people are not, unwittingly, treated unfairly. RHR believes that salary transparency leads to better culture, higher retention, and a more effective business than secrecy. Sherlock would use this messaging template to propel the company into the spotlight of the mainstream national media.
Active Surrey supports the County Sports Partnership (CSP) which represents the local delivery network of public, private and third sector providers of sport and physical activity. It is a partner funded organisation dedicated to the support, promotion and development of sport and active lifestyles throughout Surrey. As a retained client, part of our campaign plan was to assist Active Surrey with the 2012 Surrey Sports Awards – one of the most significant yet following the glitz and glamour of London 2012. Sherlock would work alongside BBC Radio Surrey to set up a series of interviews with award nominees and embargoed winners which included London 2012 Olympic medallists. In terms of print coverage, over 45 pieces were secured in magazines and regional newspapers across Surrey’s Boroughs.
“Craig is always efficient, helpful and works within my – often extremely tight – deadlines. Without doubt, he goes beyond the call of duty to ensure that he gets me the information I need, whether that means working out of hours or pulling all the strings necessary to get the quote, case study etc I need. Craig’s communication skills as a PR stand out from the rest. He is genuine, always honest about what he can deliver and is never pushy. Whenever I see an email from him in my inbox, I read it immediately. I would highly recommend Craig to any journalist.”
