Turtle PR is an award-winning, London-based agency, creating fresh PR solutions for travel and lifestyle clients. Flexible and innovative in its approach, Turtle PR is committed to providing bespoke PR strategies, having carefully considered clients' areas of need.

Founder, Leila Stocker, firmly believes the way to guarantee a one-to-one service is not to take on too many clients. This enables Turtle PR to dedicate more time ensuring campaigns are targeted, original and totally on-message. All too often in the industry clients are left to deal with junior team members on a day-to-day basis, resulting in dissatisfied clients, looking for new agencies.

With excellent media relationships, Turtle PR drives the news agenda for its clients, and delivers a sound return on investment.

  • Leila has always been a very proactive contact to have within the travel industry, getting in touch with stories and feature ideas as well as ensuring I am introduced in person to all her clients. Whenever I've called her regarding a story and needed statistics or quotes, she turns it around very quickly, which is vitally important for us as a travel website. She is a pleasure to work with.

  • Leila is everything you'd hope for in a PR - knowledgeable, enormously helpful and intuitive. She'd pre-empt requests before you thought of them and was completely calm in the face of my regular pre-trip panic. She has great ideas and enthusiasm, and made both my experiences of working with her a pleasure.

  • I've worked with Leila on and off for the past three years, and have always found her to be smart, savvy and good at her job. Leila understands the importance of fostering good relationships with the media and has found a brilliant balance between promoting her clients and providing help, support and relevant content/ideas to journalists. I travelled with her on a press trip to Las Vegas and was impressed by her leadership and organisational skills, as well as her sense of fun and professionalism. In the aftermath of the trip she was very thorough about following up and providing supporting material and any outstanding information that was needed.
