MHW PR is a leading business-to-business and technical PR consultancy in North East England.

We're here to help clients grow. We develop and implement powerful communications campaigns around great storytelling, helping change perceptions and influence behaviour.

Established in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 2000, MHW has achieved consistent growth for clients by putting our PR experience and philosophy into practice. We work closely with clients developing long-term relationships.

We are here to give 'added value'. We build our own reputation by protecting and enhancing the reputations of others. As PR and marketing consultants, we recognise that our role is to challenge and offer sound opinions based on experience. We bring contacts and insight to help clients achieve their objectives.

We understand that PR is more than the mere generation of publicity. It's about engaging with people, using a wide array of tools to inform and influence opinion. It's about great storytelling. While media relations remains a core activity it is usually only one element of a broader integrated communications campaign.
