We’ve been really lucky to have Louise at Voicebox giving us some guidance on how we set about getting the sort of press that our cool brand deserves! It’s a great way to work as it feels relaxed, informal and happy with the core element that understands how important our business is to us… so we get real direction and strategic advice on how to take our message out there, and she isn’t afraid to send us some quirky ideas that really hit the right note for us. She says it’s all part of her game plan to get our product in a store near her asap…and that’s a goal we’re really happy to aim for too!
I have had the pleasure of working alongside Michelle for the past 3 years after being lucky enough to discover her company. Michelle heads up “Voicebox PR” and I never thought that I would find myself giving a recommendation for anyone in PR but here I am and am delighted to do so. With a flair for PR that I have never encountered combined with a real down to earth commercial common sense makes Michelle a true asset. This coupled with the fact that she is also not only one of the nicest people to work with and the fact that her sense of humour just puts everyone at ease at every level just makes the whole piece complete. It’s a sort of Felicity Kendal, Carol Vorderman meets Alan sugar combination with nicer shoes.
Stride Treglown have been working alongside VoiceBox PR for over 7 years and during that time, the agency has supported significant growth and change within our organisation. During this period, we have been impressed with their commitment to our account, developing strong relationships with Board Directors and staff at levels, efficiently and expertly generating regional, national and international coverage which has increased our market profile and enabled us to improve our position as a ‘Top 15’ UK practice. We continue to work exceptionally well together and my job is made much easier by knowing that we have a proactive and productive PR agency that appreciates the culture of our practice, our vision for future success and property press in such a way that we continue to achieve excellent exposure across a range of titles. I would whole heartedly recommend VoiceBox PR and I have no doubt that we will continue to work with them for many years to come.
Voicebox has been our PR agency and was recommended by my business partner who has used its services in the past. Michelle has been an inspiration and solid support since we launched our business and has managed to get articles published in the Daily Telegraph, Guardian, on BBC radio and much more I would thoroughly recommend.

Who Are We?
We Are Creative Minds
Founded in London’s West End in 1979. Voicebox was tasked with helping to move away from the perception of being a restaurant for tourists and theatre goers.
We were responsible for securing newspaper and magazine promotions and competitions as well as press reviews and profiles. Using creative concepts we assisted with creating a much more contemporary reputation that raised awareness with more local customers
Stride Treglown Architects
Voicebox was appointed to work with Stride Treglown over 10 years ago. Stride Treglown took a chance on working with Voicebox as then we didn’t have a proven track record of working with an architectural client.
Voicebox is now an integral part of the marketing team representing each regional office helping them to promote their projects to both the local, national and trade press
Voicebox works closely with Stride Treglown's spokespeople to manage an issues led PR campaign that generates good quality press coverage. A solid client of over 10 years – we appreciate their loyalty.

Voicebox works closely with all press to ensure we respond to their needs and deadline pressures.
Comic Relief's Menu Relief
Voicebox was appointed to manage the Tragus Group Comic Relief campaign (Tragus is an official partner of Red Nose Day and Menu Relief) . Voicebox was responsible for communicating with all national, regional and trade press for Tragus Group’s brands – Bella Italia, Café Rouge and Belgo’s.
Voicebox successfully launched the campaign into the press, achieving excellent coverage on both social media platforms and in newspapers and magazines. A highlight of Voicebox’s success was arranging a tasting tour with Radio One Breakfast Show, regional radios and all consumer magazines.
Voicebox liaised with both the brand managers and the area managers to help organise fundraising events and meet targets. As a result, Tragus Group successfully raised a large amount of money and received over 40 pieces of coverage, including online, regional, trade and national.

It has a broad portfolio of organic breakfast products; oats, oat bran, muesli, crunchy, sachets, oatmeal and chocolatey squares. It’s also the winner of several international gold medals for the quality, purity and consistency of oats.

Theodora Children's Trust
A Giggle Doctor is a specialist entertainer trained by the Theodora Children’s Trust to work in the hospital environment. The extensive training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops which covers topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
Giggle Doctors from Theodora Children’s Trust have so far visited half a million children in hospital since the first ever Giggle Doctor visit in 1994. Voicebox thinks this charity does such an amazing job, it provides PR support for free in the hope that the Giggle Doctors can spread even more smiles across the UK’s children’s wards.
Chiquito Mexican Restaurants
Chiquito specialises in Mexican food and has 65 restaurants nationwide.
Voicebox was tasked with increasing public awareness of the Chiquito brand and enhancing its presence across the UK both on and offline.
We managed the launch of new restaurants into new locations through events and local PR, newspaper and magazine promotions and competitions, press reviews and profiles. We also helped create and organise event nights such as Club Tropicana 80s beach night.
The Groovy Food Company
When Groovy Food Company approached Voicebox, the brand was an unknown. The brief was to launch and make its product, Cool Oil accessible to everyone and not just to health fanatics. The founder of the Groovy Food Company had suffered from a serious arthritic condition, which had affected her life for many years. Changing her diet, and including seed oils, turned her life around and eradicated her stays in hospital. This is when she decided to produce her own seed oil and set-up The Groovy Food Company. Voicebox built a strong profile for the founder and the brand. The press to target was vast; nationals, broadcast, lifestyle, women’s, health & fitness, men’s, parenting, business, retirement and local press.
Coverage secured included, BBC Breakfast, Daily Mail, Marie Claire Magazine, Daily Express and the Daily Telegraph. This was our first client to employ a call centre to manage the calls coming in as a result of the press coverage – what a result! The Groovy Food Company secured deals with; Selfridges, Sainsbury’s, Harvey Nicholls, Waitrose and Fresh and Wild. Consequently, The Groovy Food Company launched additional products such as; Agave Nectar and Salad Dressings.
Voicebox was appointed to launch the new look Bella Italia into Uxbridge using press releases, a launch event and liaison with the local community. Following the success of the launch Voicebox was employed to manage the whole Bella Italia brand. We were responsible for communicating with all local press for the 90 Bella Italia restaurants along with local businesses and residents. This included new openings, refurbishments, new menus, offers and events.
As a result Voicebox was given the COMIC RELIEF CAMPAIGN to manage on behalf of ALL Tragus restaurants; Strada, Café Rouge, Bella Italia and Belgo’s. Fantastic coverage from this charity campaign resulted in successes such as Radio One’s breakfast show, Glamour Magazine and Heat when we arranged for Comic Relief red nose pizzas to be delivered to all press.
