Launched in 2005, with CIPR (Charted Institute of Public Relations) Wessex Representative Darren Northeast at the helm, Darren Northeast PR (DNPR) have grown an enviable client base across Dorset, Hampshire and beyond.
They help a wide variety of organisations increase their profile and brand awareness through dedicated public relations and marketing activity across a wide range of media formats including, television, radio, national & regional press & social media.
To create and map out strategic and growth plans for the company, and the staff development plan to deliver this over the next 3 years.
Using Aspirin’s ‘FASTER Growth’ programme facilitated by Aspirin Business Coach, Paul Kinvig, DNPR engaged in 4 one day workshops:
- Vision & strategy,
- Sales & marketing,
- People planning and
- Leadership development.
Using various business growth tools (including the Orbit Tool & Motivational Maps) a robust 3-year vision & strategy was created. Four core values Passion, Expertise, Trust and Results) were identified which now form the core of their brand message. We also identified DNPR’s ideal customers and started to develop staff to take on the more responsible roles required to deliver the improved performance.
The plan and coaching created a clear and robust framework for the direction of DNPR moving forwards and strengthened their brand message. It produced immediate results in terms of clients won, with the company enjoying one of the most successful periods in its 11-year history.
