Five years ago today we embarked on a life changing journey that would lead to a rollercoaster of emotions, decisions, highs and lows. We were about to make one of the biggest decisions of our life and there is no doubt that we could never have dreamed of or planned what lay ahead– yes, ladies and gents, five years ago we launched Open Communications!

We will keep this blog brief, it’s feels a little bit like a ‘selfie’, but we wanted to take this chance to thank you all for your support, encouragement, belief and of course business.

Although we are an agency, we genuinely work as an extension of our clients teams as opposed to as a third party, and that is what makes our job so fulfilling. So we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our clients for trusting us to be a part of their business and to sharing in their on-going success.

For those of you reading this who have no background on Open Comms, here’s a quick recap; we launched in 2008 in an office that was the size of a postage stamp (but we loved it), we then moved to Yorkshire House at Nostell Priory Estate Yard and decided that as a result of our success we would have to extend the team.

Little over a year ago we moved to our own offices at Nostell and once again decided that as a result of the brands and businesses that we work with and our plans for the future we would extend the team to five. We now have a fantastic team and client base that we are massively proud of. Things have certainly been busy and despite the greying hair we love what we do and wouldn’t change it for the world.

Some people said that a straight talking PR agency that focused more on results than lunches would never work but we are pleased to update that our growing list of clients disagree.

So, cheers – and here’s to many more!
