Pumpkin are the best comms people I've worked with in a long time. They are easy to work with, used to dealing with journalists and handling editorial deadlines, respectful of journalists' priorities and beats, and very well connected in the industry.

Pumpkin, led by the super-smart Sarah Owen (warm, kind and cracking company), has long been a go-to PR agency for me. Always can-do but also thoughtful and intelligent, the team really understands how best to balance the needs of the media alongside their clients’ requirements. Pumpkin is an agency with strong roots and deep expertise, and I’ve found its people always act with charm and speed. Highly recommend!

Having worked with the Pumpkin team for many years I have been consistently impressed with their creative, conscious, knowledgeable approach. They have that brilliant blend of fast-paced responsive, flexible news-led ideas and long-term strategic vision. Alongside that they are just a brilliant group of compassionate, considerate people who always bring joy to the work. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

What sets Pumpkin apart from other companies is their ability to get your company and adapt solutions and ideas to suit the people and the culture.

I’ve loved working with Pumpkin (and still do!) for several reasons – firstly they get real results, so they understand a new business plan and help you make it better. Secondly they are brilliantly connected – so they come up with fabulous opportunities in the trade press but as importantly in the nationals. And lastly, Sarah hires the right people – smart, hardworking and great to dovetail into any team.

The Pumpkin team are exceptional – and consistently deliver beyond expectation. They take the time to immerse themselves in our key initiatives and push our thinking to be better. I appreciate their honesty, transparency, dedication and commitment.

Working with the Pumpkin team on the #unseenstories campaign was a complete delight. Their insight, thoroughness, enthusiasm and delivery enabled us to reach a much larger and diverse audience than we could have possibly hoped for. Engaging with an issue such as modern slavery needs sensitivity as well as bravery in order to effectively raise awareness and this Pumpkin enabled.

Andrew Wallis, OBE, CEO Unseen Stories

Signing up with Pumpkin has revolutionised our corporate PR; before we had a handful of pieces over the course of the year with no real rationale to them. Now, thanks to Pumpkin, we have a fully operational strategy and outstanding coverage as a result. Pumpkin has taken us from a basic ‘brand reinvention story’ to a sector-disrupting, investor-ready company making noise in multiple verticals and trade press. And they’re bloody lovely to boot!
