Get On Board For Great PR

At Highlights PR we’ll always find the right story to make your business stand out.Our unique way of thinking will attract positive media attention to you. Come on board and visit us at our floating office on the river Tyne!
Highlights is an 8 metre long Viking Cruiser, especially built as my floating office. She has an airy and light cockpit where I can work or hold meetings with clients. Look out for her on Newcastle Quayside or at St Peter’s Marina.
The boat has a very peaceful feeling with a great atmosphere in which to get the creative juices flowing. It’s a great place for a meeting and our coffee isn’t bad either. My clients love the occasional trip up the river or simply just sitting in the sunshine on the upper deck.
I’m asking anyone who sees the boat to photograph it and tweet it to my Twitter account @highlightspr. The best photo each month wins a prize. See our previous winners here!

Our Services

We really push the boat out to make sure that we match (and beat) your expectations every time.

Press Release

A good press release coupled with fantastic photography isn’t always enough to guarantee you coverage in the media. We’ve also got excellent networks and personal contacts that we’ve built up over the years too.

Social Media Training & Management

Don’t know your hash tag from your RT? We can train you in social media skills or as Twitter experts, we can manage all your social media for you.

Media Training

From basic levels to crisis communication, our media training is fun, interactive and educational. We hold regular radio and TV courses throughout the year.

Crisis Management

When things go wrong, the last thing you need is the media breathing down your neck. We’ll handle that for you allowing you to concentrate on what you know best – your business.

Providing Written Content

From blogs to adverts and books to speeches, our copywriting skills will ensure that your message makes a positive impact.

Business Mentoring

With 33 years experience in business and industry and a wealth of experience in management, Keith can help your business by being a listening ear or a constructive friendly voice when you need it.

Our Portfolio

We don’t really need to show you our portfolio as you’ve probably seen it in the media already. However, in case you missed it, here it is.

Meet Keith

Hi I’m Keith Newman of Highlights PR. I’ve been working in PR for many years and understand what works and what doesn’t. I always work one to one with my clients to maximise the chance of PR success. I’m delighted to say that we have a 97% success rate. Why not pop onboard the floating office to find out more. I’ll never hard sell you and I’ll feed you coffee all day. Sounds good? Our PR process is shown below.
  • Meet For a Coffee

    Come onboard for an informal chat so that I can get to know you and how your business operates.

  • Identify Newsworthy Story

    I’ll identify a story that I believe will be great to read in the media. One of our unique skills is finding angles that no one else has thought of. After all have you ever heard of any PR agency working from a boat?

  • Write Content and Approve

    We then write your story, you’ll review and approve when you are 100% happy. You’ll always have control of what goes to the media.

  • Submit to Media

    Once you are happy with the story we submit it to newspapers, websites and media agencies including TV and radio. We’ll let you know how famous you are becoming too.
