Every month we profile a different member or tenant in our monthly newsletter, Member Bytes. This month we found out more about London PR...
Who are you and what do you do?
I’m Steve McComish and I run London PR, a team of five, guaranteeing national media coverage for a broad range of business clients across the UK.
Are you a VT, tenant or member?
We’re tenants. We actually used to be based in another business centre but became Antenna members and then ended up moving in two years ago!
What are your short-term and long-term goals?
I've been putting stories together for 20 years but I still get a buzz out of creating them and seeing them in the national press. My long term goal is to continue to help our clients grow their businesses by introducing them to the mass market.
How can people get in touch with you?
