If we were to sum up our business in one sentence it would be that we are an integrated sales and marketing consultancy working with companies that supply the regulated and industrial sectors. We help our clients be successful!

We deliver results

Here at The Scott Partnership, we believe that PR and marketing activity should go beyond traditional preconceptions and ultimately deliver results that matter and add value – which translates in simple terms as increased sales and growth for your business.




Headquartered in Cheshire in the North West of England (home of many great things including the beautiful Peak District, Cheshire cheese and the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre to name but a few!), our global footprint expands across the UK, US, India and China which means that we have the ability to deliver culturally appropriate and targeted campaigns across multiple geographies that are relevant to your target audience.

With over 20 years’ experience in translating scientific and technical excellence into commercial strategy, not only do we understand science and technology, we love it! We also love our clients and make it our business to get to know you and what matters most.

So here’s the deal; you bring the scientific and technological innovation and excellence; we bring the creativity and communications expertise. We combine them to produce a strategic programme that will help you achieve your business objectives, whatever they may be.
It really is as simple as that.

Our track record of achieving tangible results is based on building long-term client relationships and our longest running partnership

with a client has been 14 years so we must be doing something right!

We’re with you through the good, and sometimes more testing times and we know what works when it comes to successfully achieving your business objectives. We can’t wait to get to know you and your business and to become partners in your success.

Want to experience a true partnership? Come and work with us!
