ScaleUp Radio

Nov 25, 2019

Walking the dog is something that so many of us can relate to - you might even be doing it now, whilst listening to this podcast! But how many of you think that you could have a life-changing conversation whilst walking the dog? Well, that’s something that happened to our latest guest.

On this episode of ScaleUp Radio, Kevin Brent speak to Hannah Haffield from Make More Noise PR.

Make More Noise is a relatively young company, started in October of 2015, but it’s come a long way in such a short time; now employing a team of 8 shortly to be 9, and moving the company from Malvern to Birmingham and then to larger and more prestigious serviced Birmingham office.

Hannah had never considered PR as a career before that dog-walking conversation, but it is clear that Hannah has developed a real passion for providing results based PR to her company’s clients.

As always, there was a lot of ground covered, including:

 - The challenges involved in employing someone who is also a friend!

 - How to make the move from a home-based company to one with it’s own premises

 - Making sure that, as much as possible, you structure the company culture to benefit the people within it as well as the customers. Basically, keep the staff happy!

 - The ups and downs of moving your business from a small town to a large city

It was great to have the chance to hear such a great scale up success story, there are some great lessons here not least in terms of behaving like the business you want to be even before you get there!
