welcome to Stones PR

My name is Jonathan Stones. 

Through Stones PR, my team and I provide astute media and PR counsel ahead of effective crisis management, public relations and content production work.

Our media services build strong bonds, shared purposes and meaningful loyalties between brands and their audiences – from any starting position.

Strategic Storytelling

Stones PR helps brands tell their stories through the media.

Drawing on 20 years and more of editorial experience, we work to the media’s standards, values and agendas in securing the right brand exposure for organisations, individuals and places.

Whether generating publicity, quelling crises or producing content, we understand the value of good storytelling in influencing perceptions and decisions around commerical brands.

 

What we do

Crisis Management

When managing a crisis, we control information to influence how the media communicates its version of events. We focus on your integrity, transparency and will to resolve matters, while coordinating journalists, lawyers, coaches and consultants to help restore your reputation.

Public Relations

Our news sense, storytelling skills and well-placed contacts are vital when generating big ticket publicity and media coverage. Stones PR works with editors, journalists and experienced creative professionals to generate and orchestrate PR campaigns the media wants to use.

Content Creation

Researchers, writers, photographers, videographers and designers play key roles in supporting PR and crisis campaigns with ‘media-ready’ assets. We’re experts in creating engaging content, ideal for media use and distribution through print, broadcast and digital channels.

Media Consultancy

Stones PR provides consultancy to brands seeking to build, manage or restore their reputation through the media. Whether advising personalities, coaching start-ups or guiding established organisations, our counsel helps you to generate the public profile and media coverage you need.

Where Our Clients Appear

Through our work we have secured excellent positions in the media for our clients. Below are some of the titles to have carried our campaigns.

What Our Clients Say

  • "A superb service, Stones PR goes above and beyond. After baulking at the fees of larger Manchester PR agencies, we asked Stones PR to highlight our exhibition at the Manchester Museum during National Transplant Week. Jonathan showed greater media knowledge. His PR campaign, delivered at short notice, made a full page feature in the MEN, and online. The charity's exhibition was well attended. Its profile leapt forward. Stones PR’s work is outstanding."
    Irene Chambers, Fundraising Manager
    Kidneys For Life
  • "Rest Assured Funeral Plans faced ruin when ITV threatened to broadcast four untrue allegations about us. We hired Jonathan to manage the crisis and by the time he was finished we were held up as an industry benchmark on prime time TV. Stones PR then generated more positive publicity for us in The Sun and Mirror to ensure the public ‘got the message’. An extraordinary company with unique skills. Everyone should have the pleasure of working with Stones PR."
    Tom Loughran, Director
    Rest Assured Funeral Plans
  • "Stones PR handles all our PR and content. It expertly managed our partner Ryan Giggs’ endorsement into the media and handled similar campaigns with referee Mark Clattenburg, soap star Adam Rickitt, England cricketer Ryan Sidebottom and BBC weatherman Simon King. All generated exceptional income. Twice we achieved global coverage. After hiring Stones PR , MHR has quadrupled its turnover. It's quite simple, Stones PR is the best PR outfit in the UK."
    Craig Henton, Director and Founder
    MHR Clinic

How Stones PR Came To Be

STONES PR Ltd. is a Manchester-based specialist media and PR consultancy.

The company was founded to offer experienced media counsel to organisations and individuals engaging the media.

As a journalist since 1997, a large portion of my career has been spent working for The Mirror in London and Belfast. After a period freelancing for ITV, I opened a press agency in Northern Ireland and sold news and features to UK and Irish media outlets.

Throughout two decades working within and with the media, I have developed extensive knowledge of its practices and agendas, and made good contacts. Many of my former colleagues still hold senior positions in large UK news organisations.

Through Stones PR, my close-knit team and circle of associates adopt a supportive, partnership approach to achieving client aims, so much so that our skills and judgement are often employed in other areas of their businesses.
