About us

Our Story

LR Comms is the concept of founder Lucy Rennie who set up the company in 2015 following a long career, over 16 years in communications in the steel industry – an environment known for its straight talking and no-nonsense approach. Lucy understands the different challenges you face as a small business owner and can speak the same language.

In her final role as Head of Communications for one of the large divisions of ArcelorMittal, Lucy looked after the communications and marketing for over 350 sites around the world. Working with each site manager and their team, often in different languages, managing different target audiences, (internal and external) and adapting to local cultures meant that at times it was like working with lots of different small businesses.

 

“In 2015, following the birth of my daughter I wanted to see if my experience, expertise and following the same kind of structure and approach would work well for small businesses owners that are busy trying to grow their business, that don’t have the time or inclination to talk ‘fluff’ but who want and need to get results from their communications and marketing.

Today, here at LR Comms we are fiercely passionate about people, communications and public relations and our vision is to provide expertise, know-how and enthusiasm to small business owners, managers and teams in an approachable, affordable and flexible way.

I’m super proud that we can offer very structured and practical advice, tailored in a way that meets the exact needs of your small business. We can find a way to help you to achieve your goals and support you to create and implement your bespoke communications and marketing plan. Our 3 ways of working with you, mean that whatever your budget, needs or priorities we’re able to adapt our services accordingly.”

Today has been one of the most productive days of my self-employment to date. My brain is busy with ideas and I feel motivated and excited about the future.

Expert partners

As a small business you need to be able to call on the right skill set, experience and expertise as and when you need it and without it costing you a fortune.
At LR Comms we have worked hard to develop and create our very own group of ‘experts’ that we can call upon as each project requires and that we can trust to deliver to our high standards, with the same values and as part of our team.

All of our expert partners have had experience working in senior positions in agencies or organisations in their respective industries and have since taken the step to work independently. This means that we can call upon the right expert at the right time to be part of your communications and marketing plan and to help us to deliver the right results for your small business at an appropriate and flexible cost.
