Whether it’s your thinking, channels or approach, sometimes you just need to mix things up

Communications.   Marketing.   Creative.

A fresh new blend that is purpose built for today’s health landscape

Born from a collective belief that great communications can save lives, Stirred was built for a world that’s in a state of flux.

A world in which sociological, technological and political systems have evolved.

Where agile working, digital literacy and the need for value have been accelerated.

And one in which healthy products and services have never been needed more and the companies behind them have never been more visible and accountable.

A world where health is now everyone’s business.

We’re on a mission to match the innovation of the health sector with the communications innovation it deserves
Delivered through a mix of…
Craft

An appetite for smart ideas

For solving real problems

Focused on great execution

Graft

Doing what is right, not what is easy

Taking care of the details

Bringing everyone on the journey

From concept to conversion, we work best when handed a channel neutral brief that requires original thinking based on solid insights.

Communications.   Marketing.   Creative.

Here are a few examples of the type of areas where we can help:

Multichannel programmes | Disease awareness campaigns | Social marketing | Strategic consultancy | Digital marketing | Stakeholder engagement | Media and influencer engagement | Platform concepts | Brand development | Sales team support | Events activation | Creative asset production |

Co-Founder

We are committed to being a force for good.

It should go without saying being in the business of health, but our healthy hybrid approach also extends to how we run our business, ensuring our actions have a positive impact on our team, the clients and communities we serve, and the wider environment.

We have started as we mean to go on and are joining other like-minded companies in building our business as a B Corp from the word go.

Balancing profit and purpose.

We’re not ones to dwell on past glories, but when you’re a start-up, some kind words from some even kinder folks are very much appreciated…

If Stirred is about blending the right things in the right way, then it seems the perfect reflection of its founders, Stuart and Jo. They both have a wealth of experience, insight and creativity but with Stuart’s Yin and Jo’s Yang they blend to give a much greater whole. Their individual track records are terrific but together they are a powerful combination that undoubtedly will make Stirred a highly attractive and impactful new addition to the heath comms market. The new firm to watch in 2021 and beyond.

Stirred is the perfect blend of two of the best people I have worked with in the industry. I consider the work we have done together to have been some of the most original, enjoyable and successful in my 30 year career in pharma.

Jo Taylor, Director EU policy, Seqirus

Having worked with Jo over a good number of years, she provides a unique balance of listening to the client’s needs, a fresh thinking approach whilst consistently delivering outcomes driven programmes. And with the team behind Stirred, they will undoubtedly be able to deliver a true strategic partnership, providing expertise and creative flair.

Karen Tait, Communications Consultant

Having worked with the team behind Stirred for many years in previous agencies, I am delighted that they have made this move to start something new. They are the real deal and I expect to see them on the awards podium very soon. Creativity, a fresh angle and diversity of thought are exactly what we need in a world that none of us could have predicted before the pandemic.
