We might be enjoying a cheeky glass or two of something sparkly tonight, as – drumroll! – we’ve been shortlisted for a fantastic Wales Start-Up Award! We’re so pleased and proud to be a nominee in the Financial and Professional Services category, alongside fellow start-ups Mango HR, Paradigm Human Performance and Talentbe – check out the full list here!
Making the shortlist is a real honour for us as we’re a small PR agency, but one with big ambition! We’re delighted that the prestigious Wales Start-Up Awards give creatives like us a chance to shout about what we do, as well as recognising the hard work and tears that go into building a business from scratch (we’re talking about putting together the office furniture here – the PR part’s easy. WHY are there so many screws left over?).
Chatterbox Communications started out in January 2016 at Welsh ICE in Caerphilly, with a desk, a phone and a small but very loyal client list. Now we’re a limited company over at Moy Road Business Centre in Taffs Well, specialising in health and wellness PR and working with lovely people including Socket Store, ActiveQuote.com, Cwm Taf UHB, Robertsons Solicitors, The Big Retreat Wales and many more, helping them craft clever messages and gain coverage in media including Metro, the Financial Times, the BBC and ITV to name a few recent examples.
We work only with businesses we believe in and people whose values are aligned with our own – after all, when you work for yourself, putting in a shift each day has to be a pleasure. We’re now looking forward to continuing to grow at the right pace and in the right way – oh, and to joining the other short-listees in September, of course, and having a darn good night out!
Many thanks to our fabulous clients, the Wales Start-Up Awards, Welsh ICE, Principality Building Society and all sponsors – see you at The Depot!
