High-Rise Communications have been a great help to The Modernist Society. They have really helped us to increase our profile regionally and nationally, including for some very important projects which might have otherwise gone under the radar, like our Save UMIST campaign.

Working with Helen from High-Rise has been above and beyond what we ever expected. We knew we needed someone to focus our PR and marketing efforts to make a real impact and Helen did not only that, but went above and beyond, really making a difference not just to the one specific event but for our whole venue. We will definitely be working with High-Rise and Helen again.
