The Brief

Our Objectives
  • Increase awareness of the brand nationally
  • Increase awareness of the brand internationally
  • Further engagement with the marine electronics industry
  • Generate positive PR for Actisense both on and off-line
Actisense Operations Manager, Lesley Keets, approached Darren Northeast PR seeking further exposure for their brand which had been growing at a rapid rate but now needed the public profile to match.

As a niche area of the marine industry, Darren Northeast PR worked with Lesley Keets and the Actisense team to ensure a full understanding of their technical products and the brand’s offering. Darren Northeast PR created an extensive media database of Marine Industry contacts to promote Actisense’s innovative products to relevant journalists.
