Higginson are the perfect fit. John has a proven track record in political campaigning while Clodagh has the media contacts and nous to achieve our ambitious aim.

Sian Sutherland

Co-founder at A Plastic Planet

The Higginson team were supremely professional and a pleasure to work with. They were with us during a particularly critical period, when their political and PR nous really helped supercharge our efforts and our output, including impressive high-profile coverage.

Higginson delivered both strategically and tactically, with enthusiasm and good humour as well – these guys are good.

Naomi Smith

CEO at Best for Britain

I had to admit I had to be convinced about using a PR firm. I was worried they wouldn’t ‘get’ who we were. In a very short time we were featured heavily in some of the most respected publications in our industry. Additionally Higginson was integral in helping us to identify how we talk about what we do as an organisation.

Paul Austin

Founder, Made Thought

The level of personalisation that you get from two people who clearly know their stuff is impressive and well worth investing in.



Their work speaks for itself.

Ajit Menon

Blacklight Advisory co-founder

The team at Higginson Strategy instantly understood the ethos behind Invisible Britain. More importantly, they also knew how to communicate its intentions and reach the right audience to make sure we raised the funding needed to take the project to the next stage.

Paul Sng

Creative Director, Invisible Britain

Higginson really thinks through what you are seeking to achieve – the outcomes. Then explores how to get there. With a very engaging, frank, challenging, pragmatic, informed, and supportive approach. Thoroughly recommended.

Graham Colclough

Partner, Urban DNA

I would highly recommend John and Clodagh and their impressive team.

Boris Pilichowski

Co-CEO at Karhoo

I have spent 30 years in the industry growing businesses using communications agencies and know what works and what doesn’t. There are some agencies that are creative and some that can deliver coverage but very few that can do both well. Higginson is one of those agencies. They are bubbling with ideas but are able to secure huge quantities of newsroom coverage at the same time.
