Monday 24th June

About us

Pagefield is a fully integrated, cross-party, strategic communications consultancy that offers specialist expertise in corporate campaigning, public affairs, public relations and digital. We raise up our clients’ voices by delivering strategic communications designed for impact.

Founded in 2010 – and now proudly a subsidiary company within the international Public Policy Holding Company (PPHC) group – we’ve worked with hundreds of the world’s biggest brands, listed companies, fast-moving start-ups and challengers, inspiring charities, and extraordinary individuals. We provide our clients with best-in-class insight, creative thinking and we are strategically connected to the media and political stakeholders our clients need to help them navigate an increasingly complex world.

We deliver for clients across all sectors of the economy including Hitachi Rail, Klarna, London City Airport, Pennon Group, Pernod Ricard, and Warner Bros Discovery. We relish difficult challenges and have led the campaign to repatriate the Elgin Marbles to Greece; the fightback on behalf of the property industry against legislation undermining investor confidence; and the ongoing push to protect property rights in the telecoms market.
