24. Seven Hills
The pioneering PR firm putting British entrepreneurship on the map
Founders: Michael Hayman and Nick Giles
Founded: January 2010
Seven Hills is not just a PR agency. The self-styled ‘campaigning communications firm’ is redefining UK entrepreneurship and establishing Great Britain as a global centre for enterprise. The co-founders are among the team behind StartUp Britain – a partnership between the government and private sector to stimulate UK entrepreneurship – and Hayman is chairman of MADE: The Entrepreneur Festival.
Named the UK’s fastest-growing PR consultancy by PR Week magazine, Seven Hills’ client list includes former Dragon Doug Richard, the Peter Jones Foundation and The Prince’s Youth Business International. In fact, just about the only name not on Seven Hills’ books is that of Sir Richard Branson. Something for 2013 then.
