Family business PR & communications

Family businesses are different. If it's done wrong, PR will expose family owners to immediate, long-term and highly personalised risks. Family businesses need a subtle, careful and cautious approach — an approach that always thinks in the family's long-term interests.

Transmission Private works with many of the country's largest family businesses and their owners, advising them on all aspects of their communications, whether that's liaising and maintaining relationships with the press; managing harmful and challenging stories; monitoring the media; or, where appropriate, announcing positive news and communicating the company's values and principles.

As specialists at working with private clients, we know that the line between a family business and its ownership is razor-thin. Every announcement, article or quote from a business risks drawing the family into the media — and that needs to be approached carefully and sensitively.

It is essential that family businesses work with a communications agency that is designed from the ground up to understand, navigate and think about these risk.
