Who we are

Parkin Whitman is a strategic communications and marketing consultancy set up by Jo O’Driscoll and Lucie Parkin.

Our approach is based on integrity, common sense, a good splash of creativity and over 40 years’ experience of developing successful communications and marketing strategies for our clients.

Our focus is the public sector and the creative industries. Our private sector clients include major designers and manufacturers of interiors and office products, and our public sector work includes government departments, regulators, local authorities, universities and major charities.

We met and clicked while studying for our MBAs and have worked together on a wide range of successful projects. We are supported by a wide network of associates, including marketing and communications experts, designers, social specialists, web developers and copywriters.

Our aim is to provide the full range of services as a large agency, but at a fraction of the cost and with a personalised, tailored approach.
