Bright Bee: About Us

The Technology PR Specialists

Bright Bee are experts in Technology PR. We’re a team of senior computer scientists and communications specialists.

We speak to you as your peers, rather than regurgitating the information you give us.

We’re your strategic partner: Whatever your brand challenge, whether it’s your messaging for a very complex technology, a need to simply raise your profile, or a requirement to grow your social media base, we’re the people you need to speak to.

Your brand is important - with Bright Bee’s insider technology knowledge and its senior–led structure – you can be sure you are getting the right communications representation to drive your brand forward.

  • PR

    We work with your business objectives to create a sound PR strategy; one that places the right message, in the right media, for the right audience. We pride ourselves on delivering tangible results and work in a transparent way, measuring our progress every step of the way.


    All our campaigns integrate social media. Done correctly, it's an extremely cost-effective way to interact with your target audience, generating relationships that lead to sales. Every tweet or post is measured for impact and we make sure it all counts towards your end goals.


    The way we consume our information is evolving. This presents a challenge: How do you reach today’s fragmented audiences? We’ve always been storytellers, but today that story must work for a multitude of platforms, whether that’s a blog, newspaper, radio, online magazine, a photo story, a newsletter or social media.
