Publishing, Theatre & Radio

Solutions for an evolving media landscape

Long-standing traditional media industries are under pressure. The digital world, and the seamless delivery of content and entertainment forces new thinking, and new approaches for media owners and workers alike. Against this backdrop, the desire for personal, human involvement, interaction and experiences has become even more vital. The tension between these two worlds is exciting,

but challenging. We specialise in acting for publishers of newspapers, magazines and books in all media, including representing media owners, publishers, disrupters, innovators, editors, authors, bloggers, influencers and contributors.  We are also involved with radio owners, broadcasters, and regulators and, of course, talent.

Traditional media is under pressure.
