#Journorequest – We help you write your story

We’ve featured in most UK publications (well maybe not Fishing Weekly) and helped many members feature too; helping business owners, charities, professionals and ambassadors raise awareness on the issues that matter to you and your business.

Journalists know they can trust us to deliver timely responses, ditching the sales talk to ensure you get the perfect soundbite or case study for your story. If you are a member of our mastermind group you can post your own requests or email us and we can help.

We aim to highlight the stories that matter to business, women in business and UK small business success. 

All publications featuring our members feature in our monthly newsletter, social media and website updates.
