MLSC UK Team
The following organisations are members of the MLSC UK Team and are providing their services to the campaign on a pro bono basis.
Total Media is the only media agency built on the principles of Behavioural Science; from our people to our methodology to our use of technology. Today’s business environment is becoming increasingly challenging and disrupted and we can no longer rely on the traditional demographics to understand, identify and target people. It is through our understanding of consumers; how they think, feel and act, that we are able to plan around people’s behaviours and influence them for the benefit of our clients. All of which enables us to help resolve the enormous array of business challenges that our clients face as a consequence of such disruption.
At Brand Cornac our work is based on McKinsey research that says, “strong brands consistently outperform the market”. We help SMEs articulate their brand with their purpose and then embed this into their commercial approach to accelerate growth.
We developed our methodology working in the white-hot competitiveness of elite sport (Formula One and Premier League football) and have since adapted and refined it across varied B2B and B2C sectors.
We now specialise in working with companies about to go through fundraising and those who have just received new funds; initiating key moments of change for organisations to target accelerated growth. In the last 3 years our clients have raised over £200m of new funding and two have managed successful, lucrative exits. We do this by getting people to care about our clients’ brands, not just their products.
Larkin PR is a dedicated consultancy for start-up and scale up companies, specialising in helping to launch and grow businesses in the sustainability, innovation and tech sectors. Our clients include Frugalpac, makers of the world’s first paper bottles for wines and spirits and MediMusic, who dispense music as medicine to ease pain, anxiety and stress.
We’re here to help you shape your story and tell it to your potential investors and customers.
Based in the Centre for Digital Innovation in Hull (C4DI), we work with a network of experienced consultants across the UK with decades of experience in public relations, public affairs and content creation for sites and social media.
We’ve been developing websites and SaaS projects for all business sectors for over 14 years at Pingala Media. We’ve worked with lots of charities and supported many great campaigns over the years with digital platforms and solutions. We connected with the MLSC UK project via the Company of Entrepreneurs of which our MD Jon Spree is a Freeman, and thought it was a fantastic campaign to be involved with and were keen to link up with the Team and help on the digital front.

Panpathic Communications is an award-winning boutique Public Relations agency offering both PR and Social Media services to small businesses and authors. Specialising in working with start-up and scale-up companies and independently published authors, the company is headed by award-winning journalist and broadcaster, Chantal Cooke, the co-founder of PASSION for the PLANET radio. Chantal is author of two books about PR, and is the PR trainer for Virgin Start-up, helping fledgling companies punch way above their weight in terms of media coverage. Panpathic is proud to support the Make Listening Safe Campaign. ‘Having worked as a radio presenter for over 20 years, I have seen the damage that headphones, if turned up too loud, for too long, on a regular basis, can do to a person’s hearing. I am pleased to support the campaign and hope that more people can be educated about the importance of taking care of their hearing.’ said Chantal Cooke, MD of Panpathic Communications.
