A PR Agency & Consulting Company Based In Edinburgh, UK.

As an Edinburgh headquartered PR agency we’ve been changing perceptions, enhancing reputations, and generally keeping our clients at the forefront of their respective industries, since we first opened our doors back in 2002. Whilst we are based in Edinburgh, we work with clients throughout Scotland , across the rest of the UK and internationally.

Acumen ranks as one of Edinburgh and Scotland’s top mid-tier PR Consultancy Companies with a formidable track record and an uncanny knack of getting our clients positioned where they need to be seen.

As a PR agency with extensive practice, we have never shied away from big challenges. Indeed, bringing our expertise as a consulting company to many high-profile organisations has challenged us to not only keep up with client demand, but do so with a bespoke and highly unique level of service.

Through our many years of experience, we have proven that we can bring a level of service to high pressure environments which other PR agencies and companies would fail to do so. Moreover, we’ve had the satisfaction of seeing our clients chosen for significant contract wins, winning awards, securing funding and being able to open up new markets and sales channels through our PR campaigns on their behalf. After all, we’re only doing our job. Acumen goes beyond expectations and our clients reap the benefits.

In order to see our clients unlock their full potential, Acumen PR is an agency that strives to deliver a consistent flow of qualitative media coverage that not only informs but also educates. By complementing your brand with positive news that helps your specific target audience become engaged, we hope that as a PR consulting company, we can give your organisation a push in the right direction.

As a recognised PR agency in Edinburgh, Scotland and throughout the UK we believe our success comes down to our passion for what we do in addition to our many years of experience. Unlike some intrusive and costly advertising methods, we at Acumen PR are an agency that helps organisations to benefit from the attention they deserve through a means that is not invasive and provides the highest level of value possible.

You won’t find any clients passed down the ‘food chain’ to junior staff either. We’ve heard this complaint so many times – Director or Senior Partner goes into a client, wins the work, and allows a junior member of staff to ‘learn on the job’! It will never happen at Acumen.

Director level engagement is our ‘mantra’ at all times.
