We help innovators
communicate well.

You've got a story about something new.
We work within
 your team to tell it.

1284 is a strategy agency which supports people and organisations by using PR, corporate comms and media relations. We think hard about the best ways of getting your message received and understood.

Our consultants are senior media leaders and post-graduate researchers. They operate with public, private and third sector organisations across the East Midlands. They give honest opinions based on their experience and your situation. They are also discreet.

We work collaboratively, responsively and transparently with people and organisations leading change - regardless of whether they employ one person or one thousand.

Our founder was editor of the Leicester Mercury and LeicestershireLive from

2016 to 2020.

Our favourite feedback is when clients say that they view us as part of their team. Our consultants have managed dozens of teams over the years and know how valuable this is.

We think that, by working within client teams, we can share with your people our own experience of communicating business, building trust and managing change.

By being approachable, down-to-earth and interested in our clients' people, we aspire to add further value by increasing understanding of the why - not just the how.

The majority of our work comes from returning clients and word-of-mouth referrals.

Our core geographic area is Leicestershire. However, we also have established networks extending across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and the wider East Midlands.

In addition, our many years spent leading regional newspapers mean that our connections in the media run across England and Wales.
