Our sectors

Membership

If you're grappling with how best to communicate with your current or potential members, we can help. We will apply our experience and our willingness to get under the skin of your sector to convey your messages, benefits and expertise with freshness and flair. Our report, The Content Conundrum, investigates the pros and cons of keeping your content for members only or sharing it more widely.

We know that professional bodies, trade associations, charities and other membership organisations can have specific and nuanced communications challenges. Often this involves negotiating with a complex network of stakeholders. CIBSE (The Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers), CIM (The Chartered Institute of Marketing) and CTSI (The Chartered Trading Standards Institute) are some of the membership bodies CPL works with. 

Corporate

CPL works with high-profile corporates including SABMiller, AstraZeneca, EY and Reed. We focus on getting to know what it is you want to say to your audiences (including clients, customers and employees), then create engaging ways in which to deliver your message. Our specialism is in crafting written or video copy in the right tone of voice and with your communications priorities firmly in mind.

We work with companies in a variety of ways: every project really is different. For some we write; for some we design; for some we develop video and digital projects. And for others we do all three, and sometimes more. 

Brands

Certain clients require communications and marketing material that convey their story to a specialist audience. For Darley, our dedicated team of designers and developers produce marketing material for every aspect of its global operation. Engaging websites, stunning hard-backed catalogues, signage and direct marketing material, and daily story-led advertising are just some of the projects we undertake for this world-renowned bloodstock breeding brand.

Meanwhile, the brochures we created for luxury retailer Fortnum & Mason saw online hamper sales increase to record levels. Of course results are what matter. So, what you want to achieve is uppermost in our minds when we conceive, plan and execute work in this sector. 

What our clients think

Strategic, creative and responsive is how I'd describe the CPL team. We are delighted with Catalyst, which is proving a very effective communications tool, helping us engage with our members. And our online content hub goes from strength to strength

The team at CPL have helped us create an award-winning magazine for Arthritis Care, which our members love, and they are keen to continue developing the publication to ensure it always hits the right note. They listen to our suggestions and come up with solutions, making our job much easier!

We’re delighted by CPL’s work on our new digital content. The print version has consistently been voted our top member benefit and the digital magazine and newsletters allow us to build on that success.
