Media House International - Public Relations & Crisis Management

Media House International is a full service communications company, specialising in public relations, crisis management and public affairs.

The company was founded in 1991 by former daily newspaper editor and senior management executive Jack Irvine.

Initially Media House International concentrated its activities in Scotland but for the past 15 years, Media House has run a thriving office in the City of London. A year later a New York operation was established to handle the American PR interests of transport giant, Stagecoach Group plc.

Today Media House International is acknowledged as a cutting edge UK public relations boutique operation providing a comprehensive range of communication services in addition to issues and crisis management and, in the past decade, political analysis and intelligence.

The management team also includes highly experienced media operator, Ramsay Smith, and it is his wide experience and industry knowledge that allows Media House to outpunch much bigger rivals.

Media House International exists to assist companies and individuals in maintaining a favourable public image and we acknowledge that the PR game has become infinitely more difficult as social media has stolen the clothes of many conventional media sources.

However a new generation of young highly motivated graduates are now in the front line for Media House International and every modern communications strategy is part of their armoury.

Celebrity clout or calamity?

I’m ashamed to say I’m a sucker for celebrity endorsement. Put Jennifer Lawrence in a product and I’m sold and whilst Felix Baumgartner doesn’t make me want to do a supersonic free fall, he does make me want to buy a Red Bull.
