EKC’s approach is super professional whilst keeping the human touch. Erica’s deep understanding of the market is a tactical asset to any organisation in the space.
Dr Payman Langroudi, Managing Director
EKC has worked as the retained PR Agency for Initial Medical (part of Rentokil Initial) for the past two years, during which time they have impressed with their dental sector media contacts and the way they have been able to evolve our media relations with the aesthetics sector. Their technical writing ability is superb and they are able to weave expert knowledge into engaging articles and web content. The results they have delivered to date have surpassed our agreed targets and we look forward to working with them in 2018.

We have used EKC Communications for over a year now and have found them very good to work with. There is no way we could have pulled together and delivered our PR and media strategy for the year without them. Erica and the EKC team are readily accessible and always ready to help and give advice when necessary. We have found it invaluable working with them and will not hesitate to use them again this year!
Patrick South, Managing Director
EK Communications have been a pleasure to work with over the past few years. Their support in helping us develop our brand within the sector has been of great value. Most recently, they provided great help and advice as we brought our inaugural conference to life in May 2017 for which we are extremely grateful. We have found EKC’s vast knowledge of our sector to be invaluable and the work they do with us to enhance our brand in dentistry is an essential part of our ongoing growth plans.

EKC never charge outside their retainer and always go the extra mile – nothing is too much trouble. Sophie Chalk, editorial director, and her team of writers deliver the highest standard of editorial across all aspects of dentistry and business, and with the innovative ideas and support from Erica Kilburn, EKC is the team to work with!
