Our team thrives on collaborating with best-in-class organisations across diverse sectors.

We partner with UK-headquartered businesses that are innovating and expanding. And international companies venturing into or growing within the UK and European markets.

Partnership is in our DNA

Our journey began in 2018 when founding director, Dan Sheridan, started his independent consulting career. He quickly formed close ties with several businesses, becoming an indispensable member of their teams. From 2019 to 2021, this approach widened to serving more clients with the involvement of other experienced self-employed PR & communications consultants.

Together, we offered enriched counsel, creativity, and unwavering support to both private and publicly listed clients – a legacy we are proud to continue today as Duo. It’s from this highly collaborative approach between consultants and clients that our name, “Duo” was inspired.

We don’t just offer services; we bring commitment and rigour to the table. Our aim is to foster a more intimate working relationship than what one might expect from a typical PR agency.

Our values are at the heart of what we do

Ambitious Achievers – we challenge the traditional agency model, striving for results through our agile approach.

Passionate Thinkers – we’re passionate about our work, loving what we do for our clients and team every single day.

Trusted Partners – integrity is at the core of all our actions. We place our clients’ interests at the heart of our business.

Why talk to us?
Our client teams are carefully selected from a pool of seasoned consultants in our network.

This approach ensures that our clients receive expertise tailored to their specific needs, engage with passionate consultants eager to collaborate, and benefit from the seniority that fosters immediate and trusted, peer-like relationships.

Our team members are spread between London and the North of England, and we’ve anchored our hub office in the heart of Manchester. From this vantage point, we serve clients both nationally and internationally.

Our expansive network extends to fellow PR consultancies in the US, APAC, Germany, and France, and encompasses professionals in marketing, digital, and content production from both freelance and agency backgrounds.

We’re continually seeking talented self-employed consultants spanning the entire PR and communications spectrum to join us. If this is you, and you’re craving a refreshing remote or hybrid work environment surrounded by experienced peers and clients who will value your professionalism, we’d love to connect.
