Dulcolax briefs Amazon for the fourth year running
We're celebrating a great start to 2016 including a project with leading constipation brand Dulcolax. We're working with the team for the fourth year running, following three successful information and awareness campaigns.
Nikki Milne, Dulcolax Senior Brand Manager, says:
"The Amazon team are excellent because they get us and deliver excellent results year on year. 2015 saw an increase in awareness amongst new audiences and this year's work will build on that, with the creation of a fresh new guide and film content."
Our work for the brand in 2013 was shortlisted for an OTC Marketing Award for best public relations campaign for a medicine.

The Brooke calls in Amazon
We're delighted to announce that we're working with The Brooke, the international animal welfare organisation dedicated to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules in some of the world's poorest countries.
Amazon has been recruited to work with the in-house team on a range of exciting national media opportunities over the coming months.
Head of Communications at The Brooke Rachel Bhageerutty says:
'We have some fantastic Ambassadors supporting the charity's work and we're delighted to be hosting visits to our projects overseas so they can experience what we do and the impact that we have first-hand.
'We've brought Amazon on board to help make the most of our amazing content and demonstrate the difference working equines make, delivering lasting, positive change around the world.'
Amazon marks 15th anniversary
We are celebrating this month. It's 15 years since Amazon was established.
In that time, we have of course seen a great deal of change in society and within the voluntary and public sectors, and massive shifts in the way comms is delivered. We've responded and adapted to each challenge and each opportunity.
For us, though, two things have remained the same. From the start, our approach has been a bit different. 'Not your usual PR types' is often how we're described. Or 'refreshingly real', as one of our clients said. That hasn't changed and it won't. Fluff and guff can be found in our profession, but not in our office. Our team is strategic, smart, creative and dynamic, but our feet are on the ground and they're staying there!
Secondly, we remain true to our purpose. There were some doubters 15 years ago, those who felt we were naïve to specialise in work for values-based organisations and brands that have a positive impact. But that's what we've done and what we'll continue to do.
An anniversary is a good time to take stock. To thank our clients, our colleagues and our partners and to look forward to the next stage in our journey together.
But it's not our style to gaze inwardly for too long or to be self-congratulatory. There's work to be done.
