About the Mangold Consultancy

The Mangold Consultancy is founded on a passion for and in-depth experience of strategic counsel during the most high-profile issues. This comes from 20+ years experience in BBC TV production and various global public relations agencies.

We give open and honest advice and promise constructive challenge, while our nimble structure guarantees exceptional value with senior expertise at all times.

The Mangold Consultancy is built for businesses who want to understand and manage the potential challenges to their reputation. We do this by providing a swift response and tailored services, to stem any negative impact on your business. We grow team resilience, so you are rehearsed and prepared with what to say and how to say it, well before an issue arises.


Our clients include SMEs through to leading multinational brands, who all call on our national journalism and global crisis communications expertise. We have worked across many sectors: FMCG, food production/service, education, financial services, professional services, PR agencies, transport/logistics, housing, property development, high profile individuals, health/research and charities.

Our services include Crisis Management providing tools to plan for and manage a crisis, so your business is well prepared to assess and respond. Our Media Training is tailored to all levels combining insight of the press in all its guises, with the time to rehearse tactics for speaking to different journalists during a crisis. We adapt our Corporate Communications services so each client can effectively set out their position in challenging circumstances, resonating with the media and wider stakeholders.

Our agile structure and flexible approach suits our clients worldwide and more locally by providing strategic counsel when and where it is needed most. We bring an outsider’s perspective, to assess how an issue can develop in the media, among clients and consumers. Our journalism experience twinned with leading roles in communications for major business, gives us the edge and depth to understand and support your business.
