As we turn the page on another year, we take hold of the opportunity to look ahead towards our goals for the coming one. I want to talk about Admire PR’s manifesto and lay out our vision, mission and values to guide us into 2023.
I founded Admire after becoming disillusioned working as a consultant in bigger agencies that placed no real value on customer equality. Few seemed to operate with transparency and honesty. Hence, Admire is a direct result of my dream for change. There is no denying that PR as an industry has a bad reputation, which is amusing considering we are in the business of building positive reputations!
You will be glad to know that we always strive to exceed our clients’ expectations at Admire PR. We are ready to go the extra mile to help them sail through the challenges of our turbulent economy. We will get them the recognition, publicity and tangible business results they deserve. Our clients mean the world to us. They are our beacon of light.
One of my favourite quotes is from Fanocracy.
“Build a playground that people want to play on. Then go let them play.”
This applies to my team and clients – it is the essence of Admire PR. It is what we do.
The Admire PR manifesto
Our vision – To be the UK’s most effective PR Agency.
Our values –
To be curious, always learning, and open to new ideas.
“Curiosity is the spark behind every great idea. The future belongs to the curious.”
We consistently aim to be thoughtful and carry out campaigns with concise and deliberate action.
By nature, we are tenacious, never taking no for an answer.
Our mission – To provide consistent and effective promotion and excellent reputation management for our clients. We do this through thoughtful, transparently priced PR campaigns, setting clear targets and producing well-measured results.
Why do we need a vision and mission?
Now, more than ever, it is crucial to have a strong vision and mission. A strong vision and mission keep us rooted in our goals, provide direction, and set us up for success even in the current world climate with so much unpredictability.
They help us make decisions
Our values guide decision-making. They act as an extension of our core beliefs. We do not decide to “pick” our values; they come from within our inner selves. Having a personal moral compass makes us unique, with our values becoming a significant part of our identity.
At Admire PR, our values are the core of our identity. We live by them and preach them in all aspects of our work.
They give us purpose
We will always have a purpose when we trust our values. The past two years have been exceptionally challenging, and the world has experienced so much strain. However, continuously referring back to our values gives us purpose and direction. It inspires us to remain on course to achieve our mission.
Regardless of what is happening around you, running campaigns that align you with your customer base and culture is essential. It is tempting to head off in another direction, but it can be more detrimental than good. In many ways, Admire PR’s values act as a beacon of light, shining the way for the company’s progression and direction. In turn, reflecting on each client’s work.
They help us lead our teams
When you look at your purpose as a collective team, you soon realise what is most important to you. At Admire PR, we always want to encourage and uplift. Our team is made up of talented people from all backgrounds who share a passion for writing. We realise the importance of encouragement, and this is a sentiment applied to our customers. We always prioritise praise.
When we have our values, a strong purpose and mission will always follow. At Admire, our purpose stems from my past experiences and the desire that everyone deserves equality and amazing end results.
Reflection and heading into the new year.
As we reflect on our year the numbers of what we have produced as a team are impressive but what they don’t tell you is the story behind every single one of the incredible clients we have worked with. That’s what we are here for, as the backing singers to our stars.
Through a turbulent year they have all grown their businesses.
We have grown our team and I have the BEST group of people with me. We all care so deeply. So deeply. Often I get told not to take things so personally and so emotionally. But I do. That’s me. It matters.
