PR company helping to upskill Chamber members remotely

Morledge and Co has been pleased to work on upskilling not just our own colleagues with a range of new-found technical skills, but have been particularly busy supporting other Chamber members with online PR workshops.

Delivered via Zoom, the Morledge & Co ‘Maximising PR opportunities within your Business’ half-day workshops have proven to be valuable to a range of businesses in Somerset, the majority of them being Chamber members.

Karen Morledge, the founder of Morledge & Co has been sharing her 15 years of marketing and public relations knowledge on the training sessions.

Advice on basics such as understanding what a PR opportunity actually is, through to how to prepare a news release and more strategic aspects of planning a 12-month PR campaign, the feedback from the workshop has been fantastic in terms of how valuable and informative the content was. 

Feedback from Chamber members has included:

“It was really interesting and has definitely made me think hard about the next few months PR activity for Teapot Creative, thank you!” Lizzie Ginby, Teapot Creative.

“Thank you Karen, it was a really interesting and worthwhile morning!” Julia Ngapo, Omnia Business Management

“Very useful thanks and good to get some external interaction.” Rob Brown, Lewis Brown Ltd.

“Such an insightful morning and I learnt a lot and it was great to hear about what other local businesses are doing as well.” Katie Comer, C2 Safety.

“I’m sure I speak for all my colleagues when I say it was both enjoyable and very informative!” Patrick Maher, Chadwick Business Centres

Karen said: “It’s always a pleasure to deliver PR workshops to fellow Chamber members and the two sessions we delivered in May were a great success. I was delighted to hear how businesses implemented their learning and have already achieved some great coverage in the media as a result.

“My thanks as always to the Chamber for facilitating the workshops and to all of the wonderful businesses who invested in themselves and their businesses during this challenging time.”

Morledge & Co is continuing to deliver workshops for a discounted price during the ongoing pandemic and more information is available by emailing or online at
