About Us

Good communication is a business tool for getting things done, not just a process for telling people what you've achieved.

Linstock holds the prestigious PRCA Communications Management Standard, awarded to only 6% of UK PR agencies.

Linstock is an award-winning communications consultancy that specialises in thought leadership and crisis management, underpinned by behavioural science. We believe that somewhere within every organisation there is an idea that can change the way we view the world around us. Our work is driven by the desire to unearth this idea, using evidence and creativity to make it heard.

We work across three complex and challenging fields where our expertise adds most value to senior management teams:

  • THOUGHT LEADERSHIP: When differentiation is a challenge, we combine rigorous research with creative delivery so your brand becomes known for powerful, credible and innovative ideas.
  • CRISIS MANAGEMENT: When things go wrong and your hard-won reputation is in the firing line, we prepare, train and support you through it.
  • BEHAVIOURAL SCIENCE: In both of these settings, we apply the latest ideas from behavioural science to understand how people think and build communication programmes that drive action.

We have worked with households names and challenger brands alike, including Grant Thornton International, British Gas, BNP Paribas, the Bank of London and The Middle East (BLME) and Baringa Partners. We have won or been shortlisted for the Financial Services Forum Awards, B2B Marketing Awards and UK Public Sector Awards for our work with TheCityUK, Circle Housing, Right Management and Southend Borough Council.

Linstock holds the prestigious PRCA Communications Management Standard, awarded to only 6% of UK PR agencies. We are independently audited by the PRCA every two years. To keep our knowledge and expertise up to date, we run the Linstock Academy, which includes PR and social media training, combined with MBA-level research methodology courses.
