New Recruit for Visual PR. An innovative new business, offering organisations the chance to star in their own chat show style broadcasts, has taken on its first team member.

Visual PR, launched this year by Swindon entrepreneur Chris Dawes, has recruited graduate Joe Marrow. Joe’s video, graphical, technical and content creation skills are enhancing the business’ services.

Joe has recently graduated from Staffordshire University, with a first in PR and Community Management. He said he felt excited to be joining Chris’s new venture.

It’s such an exciting concept and a great opportunity for me,’ he said. ‘There’s no better person than Chris to work with. He’s the ideal presenter and interviewer, and I can help with the video and content creation side. His excitement for the project has inspired me.

Before I went to university, I was taking a technician apprenticeship. But I wasn’t enjoying it and wanted a job where I worked with people. My university course also involved a whole module dedicated to content creation. And that’s great as I love anything to do with computers and video.’

About Visual PR

Chris launched Visual PR earlier this year. It’s an exciting new way to help organisations, charities and individuals reach their audiences in a new and engaging way. That’s in both the sporting and commercial worlds.

Visual PR produces live or as live, chat show style programmes. Clients then broadcast them to their YouTube channel, social media platforms, or website. They can also become audio-only podcasts.

Joe is ideal as he’s a video editor, designer and graphic designer. Thus not only is he able to take some of the workload off me, he is also taking it to the next level,’ said Chris. ‘He can work on the intros, outros, video stings and graphical elements to the shows. The things that make them pop and add the wow factor for our clients.’

Visual PR shows can be one-off or regular episodes. They’re produced through its online virtual studio suite. They can include interviews, multiple guests at the same time from their own locations, on-site, roaming, and even broadcast live from events. Just like regular TV shows, there’s the ability to:

  • Incorporate different camera focuses, angles and mobility,
  • Make stings of other videos and …
  • … there is even a green room for guests waiting to come in.

Current project

The pair are currently working on a show for Bespoke Guardian Swindon Wildcats ice hockey team, which Visual PR also sponsors.

The show is due for broadcast live on August 29 at 6:30pm on the Swindon Wildcats’ YouTube channel and Facebook page. It will include special guests, interviews with players, the team mascot and the unveiling of a new signing. Anyone who misses the live show, can watch it back later via the Wildcats’ YouTube channel or Facebook page. Shows are available online, for an indefinite period, even after the lights go down.
