Why we do it
The four things we hold sacred at DawBell are...
- Loving the people we work for
- Loving the team we work with
- Loving our work
- Staying ahead of the shifts in audience engagement
We work in a people business, so getting these four things right helps us to create incredible, innovative, insightful, award winning work, which make our clients very happy!
We have a thirty strong team who sell an experience and a service, and that can only be the very best because we are all motivated, creative and passionate about what we do.
Who we are
DawBell was first founded in 2009 from a tiny office opposite Charing Cross station in the heart of London.
Our goal was to re-invent the model of the traditional entertainment PR agency, into something bolder and smarter, that also had a much wider business scope.
We started the company during a recession, which gave us a lean start-up mentality, built on focus, efficiency and growth.
This was a time when the media landscape and entertainment industry were going through rapid change as they continue to do so today.
We wanted to stay at the forefront of our business by evolving with these changes; a finger on the pulse while constantly looking ahead.
What we do
Whether it is a superstar or a super brand, our clients all want two things: relevance and reputation.
We advise all our clients with these two very important points in mind, as they are the keys to long term success.
We have always been at the centre of popular culture, giving us a very unique perspective on engagement with every type of audience.
Our work has not gone unnoticed … We made it into the Top 5 Best New Agencies at the 2011 PR Week Awards as well as being nominated every year in our existence at the Music Week Awards - winning twice. We are in the shortlist of the Top 5 Small Agencies in the UK for this year's PR Week Awards (2016) as well as the Top 6 Specialist Agencies.
We look after some of the most powerful influencers in popular culture today - Paul McCartney, Gary Barlow/Take That, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, James Corden, Harry Styles, Beck and Shawn Mendes - who interact with hundreds of millions of people every single day.
Our brand clients include some of the biggest and most important operators in entertainment: Universal Music, Sony Music, Warner Music, The Isle Of Wight Festival, musical.ly, Amnesty International and Sofar Sounds, Casio Music, The Mercury Prize and The BRIT Awards.

Media, technology, entertainment, products, business and people’s habits are constantly evolving. Our business is built on this principle and is designed to stay agile enough to adapt to continuous change.
We know what works now will not have the same impact in six months time, so we are constantly knitting together these ever evolving key areas of influence, whether they are newspapers, magazines, websites, TV shows, brands, blogs or people, to make bespoke campaigns that have real, measurable impact.
