Seven twelve is a Sheffield-based PR agency that helps brands and businesses to communicate better, by generating positive media coverage and by engaging effectively via social media.
Services include campaign development, copywriting, news releases, events, media training, product launches, issues management and internal communications.
Owner Sarah Chapman has lived in Sheffield on and off since the early 80s, going to Silverdale school and then the University of Liverpool to do a BA in Combined Honours.
After building her PR career in Manchester she returned to Sheffield at the end of the 90s to work for one of the city's then best known marketing agencies on clients such as Sheffield Galleries and Museums Trust, Sheffield One, Lambert Smith Hampton, Toyota, Travis Perkins, Hammerson plc's Sevenstone new retail quarter and Saint Gobain Pipelines.
Sarah has jumped out of a plane twice, black and white water rafted, flown a small plane (for a few minutes), swum with dolphins and even managed to get round the New York Marathon in 2006. As a mum, she is a strong advocate for balancing family and work life.
Sarah's diverse PR past includes a campaign to promote and protect doorstep milk deliveries (she still has her milk delivered); persuading a group of pensioners to ride a rollercoaster at Camelot Theme Park; taking North West retailers to lobby at the House of Commons; handling a launch event in the middle of a bomb scare in early 90s Belfast and arranging a fake car crash in a Vision Express store window.
