Local Public Relations and Marketing Agency, Discourse, has undertaken a programme of significant expansion to form Discourse Group, a full service marketing agency for local businesses.
Founded in Mid-2015 and based in Barkisland, Discourse offered public relations and copywriting services for West Yorkshire companies, before incorporating bespoke marketing consultancy as an additional service. Now the new group aims to coordinate the efforts of local startups to provide everything required for Yorkshire businesses to grow.
“We had an amazing response from the local business community to our PR services when we first started trading” commented Daniel Cawdron, Creative Director of Discourse Agency and now CEO of Discourse Group. “We wanted to expand the services we provide to ensure that our existing customers and new clients can rely on us for all of their marketing needs.”
“We can’t do this alone, so collaborating with and incorporating the talents of the best and brightest creative startups in Yorkshire is an incredibly exciting opportunity for us”.
The first business to join Discourse Group in providing services is Shibden Digital, filmmakers and ‘professional storytellers’ based in Halifax.
Ethan Sutcliffe, Director of Shibden Digital, stated “We love to make films and we love to work with local businesses, where demand seems to be growing every day. Working with Discourse allows us the opportunity to get our name out to as many people as possible and focus on our passion of telling compelling stories through film”.
“We have worked with Shibden Digital in the past and seen the great work they do” Added Mr. Cawdron. “We’re incredibly pleased to be working together with them and having such talented individuals onboard.”
As Discourse Group continues to grow, Daniel says they will continue to expand their services. “In Calderdale alone there are so many ambitious creative startups doing incredible work, from web design to printing. As we move forward we’ll continually evaluate the needs of our clients and hope to bring on more great teams to create a true marketing powerhouse”.
