Senior consultant appointed to support Strike’s growing client base

Strike’s team has been strengthened with the appointment of Sofia Costa as a senior communications consultant.

Sofia joins the business from the University of the West of England, where she was portfolio marketing manager, responsible for managing and delivering student recruitment marketing campaigns. Prior to that, she also worked as a marketing communications manager at the University of Bristol. She also spent six years in public relations firms in Bristol, supporting a broad range of clients across sectors including arts and culture, healthcare and professional services. 

Sofia says: “I’m delighted to be joining Strike and excited to be playing a role in helping it grow. Strike has a great portfolio of clients and I can’t wait to support them.”

Catherine Frankpitt, founder and director of Strike, says: “In spite of the pandemic, Strike has had a phenomenal first year.

Strike launches COVID-19 comms recovery package for businesses

Strike launches COVID-19 comms recovery package for businesses

Strike has launched a new communications package to help businesses and organisations ensure they are in the best position to recover when the UK begins to start easing out of lockdown.

The ‘Review and Reset’  package has been developed as part of a new partnership with another Bristol PR consultancy, Karen White Communications. We have joined forces together to offer this special service, and are donating 15% of our fees to the charity Fare Share, whose aim is to reduce food poverty in the UK.

Catherine Frankpitt, Director of Strike Communications, says: “COVID-19 has changed the way everyone is living and working and that is going to continue for a significant length of time. Organisations will need to look closely at their communications strategy and activities for the next year – it is very likely that they will need to be refocused. What we are communicating and the way we are doing it has changed with our customers, partners and employees.”

Karen White adds: “We know that most businesses’ number one concern and priority right now will be financial, which is absolutely right at this point. But in order to stand the best chance of surviving and thriving, they will need to ensure they have the right communications plan to support them. We’ve created this package as we think it offers a cost-effective solution that will help with their recovery.”

The three-step package will look at the business or organisation’s existing strategy and collateral, a review of how the landscape in which they are operating may have changed and recommendations as to how to move forward.
