We help communications teams to thrive under pressure.

Here at fox&cat, we help all kinds of teams to fight all kinds of fires. So, whether you are part of an in-house team or an agency, we can step in to support you. We use our leadership experience alongside the help of communications experts to help you remedy the issues holding you back.

We know how to help because we have been in your shoes. From within our mixed bag of experienced directors, strategists, project managers and creatives, we can build the perfect team to meet your exact needs.

Say hello to a proper night’s sleep.

Say hello to fox&cat.

Whether you need a quick fix or long-term change, our team has the experience and the skills to help. Our services cover four core areas.

1. Consultancy & Client Service

We can step in to get a project back on track or to run it from the start. We can even lend you the brains of our senior team to solve a strategic problem in a single pow-wow meeting.

2. Training & Performance

Stress management is a science, and we use that science to help teams and leaders cultivate a healthier response to pressure. We can do this on-the-job, upskilling your teams as we go, or we can do it in separate sessions. Let us help you pick the kind of training you and your team will benefit from the most

3. Organisation & Leadership

The obstacles to greatness nearly always lie within. We offer the benefits of an outside perspective shaped by deep pools of management experience. We can help you find the headspace needed to see your organisation in a fresh light.

4. Health & Wellbeing

Wellbeing isn’t a crisis issue. It’s not something that needs attention only when the wheels fall off. From mediation sessions to long term mental health initiatives, we can help your team become a more nurturing place for creative minds.

How we operate

We keep our model flexible and fluid, so we can bolt on our services to fit the needs of every different client. We’re available from early in the morning until late in the evening and during weekends so we’ll be there when you need us. We can have troops on the ground quickly if that’s what you need.

Interested? Book an introduction via our website – www.foxandcat.online – and we’ll talk you through what we do & how we do it. We will discuss services, our booking system & ways of working. Then, you can book us between 6am and 10pm seven-days a week.

Our community

We are only as good as those around us:

  • Our Network: We’ve created a vast network of brilliant services and thinkers from inside and outside communications to offer you the best in business.
  • Our Partnerships: We’re always learning. We work with industry-leading organisations to keep thinking and our services sharp.
  • Our Clients: We’ve helped some of the leading communications agencies and healthcare businesses find margins for improvement.

Over the past two years of working with Paul and the fox&cat team, we have benefited significantly from their enthusiasm, knowledge, understanding of our landscape and commitment to service. We would be more than happy to reach out to them again in the future if the need arises.

Hannah Morris, Managing Director, GCI Health

Testimonials

We recently asked fox&cat to help us research and write a proposal. They quickly understood the challenge and jumped right in to help, instantly feeling like part of our team. Work was turned around quickly and to brief. When we’re feeling the pressure again, we’ll certainly turn to fox&cat.

Chris & Neil, Managing Partners, Twelve

Paul always hits the ground running, is fully committed and beautifully manages any project we throw at him. I’m excited to see how fox&cat can help in-house teams like ours moving forward as his experienced team continues to grow from strength to strength. Fox&Cat is a totally new approach to comms agency support and one I already see helping the team here thrive under pressure.

Emma White, In-house communications contractor (pharma)

GCI Health used fox&cat for some wellness training during our Beat the Blues campaign in lockdown January. The sessions were very well put together, managed and run and we all got a lot out of them. The trainer, Alex, was very knowledgeable and passionate, and we had a lot of great feedback about the sessions. They lifted us in a troubling time providing life skills to help manage stress at work and beyond. We will certainly work with Fox and Cat again.

Zoe, Director, GCI Health

I really enjoy working with Paul - he is more like an extension to our team. He gets stuck in, challenges briefs, and comes up with some amazingly creative ideas. I look forward to working with him and his team as a part of the fox&cat venture

Tamara, Director, GCI Health

I worked with Paul to create a wellbeing offering to his client, which was delivered in January 2021 and involved several sessions covering key wellbeing themes. The whole process was really smooth and very professional Paul clearly gives 100% to his clients and genuinely cares about building great relationships with both his clients and his network.
