Focused on Building Better Businesses through Strategic Communications and Tactics
We create successful PR activities for our clients by listening to and understanding their business objectives and values, reviewing their current communications, then providing a communications strategy that integrates paid, earned, shared, and owned resources and tools, which is custom cut for each client.
Public Relations Expert in Hong Kong
With nearly 25 years of public relations experience in global organisations and 17 years in Hong Kong, you will receive quality expert PR advice that always considers your values. I have worked in four different industries for 25 years, where I learned various skills. These industries are a public body (Seafish), an FTSE 100 company (Scottish & Newcastle), the events & conference sector (Global Sources & Messe Frankfurt), and entrepreneurship (from running my own business and working with other entrepreneurs). Working in another country for 17 years gave me a local and a global perspective. My in-house work was focused on regional and international, while agency work was primarily local and regional. My work in Scotland was UK-wide. I’ve also worked with diverse audiences when I championed Hong Kong’s biggest LGBTQ+ Festival, Pink Season, for three years.
MQPR will always consider the impact of the communications strategy on your reputation.

MQPR will help you to identify your stakeholders, their needs and challenges, and which communications channels we need to monitor and use during a campaign to achieve KPIs.
Public Relations needs thoughtful planning and execution over a long period. The MQPR approach is to sit down with you to truly find out your goals and challenges, your target audiences, review your current communications assets, analyse your current situation, listen to your customers, benchmark your competitors and collaboratively provide a strategy that will make your business better.
After executing the MQPR Communications Brand Immersion Workshop, we will work within the MQPR Communications Model that integrates Paid, Earned, Shared, and Owned media to build a plan that will get the best results.
SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGY
MQPR will help you to build online communities through a range of owned content, relevant collaborations, and identify the right influencers for your brand to increase awareness and engagement with your target audience. Our deep experience means that we will protect/amplify your brand as if it is our own at all times
MQPR will identify opportunities for you to appear in online and print publications as well as TV and radio. MQPR will find the good news and frame that story with authenticity and integrity and provide you with advice on the right channels to communicate that message and how to handle each interview for optimum results. We will also build loyalty with media by developing events and content tailored to their and your audiences.
ISSUES AND CRISIS MANAGEMENT
You need to position yourself as the voice of trust, credibility, and leadership during a crisis. A crisis plan is a necessary precaution for all organisations - it helps you to communicate with your stakeholders with one clear voice across appropriate communication channels, reducing the impact of a significant threat to your reputation. MQPR can also help you during a crisis by monitoring and identifying and responding appropriately and providing feedback for future planning.
