COMPANY


Chris Morris is a former journalist with more than 30 years of national news media experience.

As staff, he won several awards for news and feature writing as well as commissioning on national magazines.

As a freelance, his journalism appeared in a wide range of titles including The Guardian, The Independent, Mirror, Sunday Mirror, Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday, Daily Express, South China Morning Post, as well as  magazines including Marie Claire, Glamour, Maxim, Cosmopolitan, Celebs on Sunday, Best and She.

Working with some of the country’s leading news and commercial photographers, he placed hundreds of words and picture packages, including national newspaper exclusives and magazine cover stories, often syndicating these throughout Europe, the US and Asia.

After switching to PR, he became fascinated by the changing world of communications in which brands now have the opportunity to become publishers in their own right, balanced against the realities of a time-starved, divergent media.

Chris Morris PR now works alongside an influential and widespread network of photographers, editors, event organisers and media insiders.

From this knowledgeable and experienced talent base, we can quickly launch, relaunch or reinvigorate a PR campaign across a multitude of sectors.

DIFFERENCE


“Brand journalism is when any organisation – B2B company, consumer product company, the military, non-profits, government agencies, politicians, churches, music bands, solo entrepreneurs – creates valuable information and shares it with the world.

It is not a product pitch. It is not an advertorial. It is not an egotistical spewing of gobbledygook-laden corporate drivel.”

David Meerman Scott.

Brand journalism involves sharing stories that make readers want to know more. It means having an honest, informative and engaging conversation with them.
