Making a difference since 1999

We’re a strategic communications consultancy. We help brilliant cities, institutions and businesses understand what makes them special and the best way of communicating this both within their organisations and externally with their key audiences.
Our aim is to make a significant difference. We’re proud of our achievements. We’re the best decision you’ll ever make. Listen to the people who would agree.


MC2 is more than just a strategic marketing consultancy, PR agency, creative studio or digital specialist. We are driven by insight informed by data and awareness of the micro and macro environment. Positioning is a critical part of any strategy and has to evolve from the authentic heart of a city, government, institution or business. Get it right and it delivers strategy and communications that makes a real difference.

We have specialist sector teams working in Placemaking, Consumer Brands, Technology, Media and Telecommunications, Financial and Professional Services, Education and Healthcare, Commercial Property and Charitable Trusts and Foundations, matching in-depth strategic thinking and sector knowledge with the ability to execute and integrate complex campaigns — through employee advocacy programmes, media relations, social and digital channels and paid for media. Our in-house teams include media relations specialists, video production, a digital team and design studio. Our model ensures that one tactic isn't always the answer but that the solution will be the mix of elements that makes a difference to your brand.


We're proud of our Mancunian roots. We’re proud of our place in the Manchester growth story. Manchester is the original, modern city. Its thinking has impacted globally throughout the ages – from the industrial revolution to the programmable computer to the commercialisation of graphene. In the late 80s/early 90s, the world looked to Madchester for its musical lead. At its heart was The Boardwalk nightclub, the home of The Stone Roses, Oasis, The Verve, James, Happy Mondays, The Charlatans and 808 State. Their creativity shaped the industry. The Boardwalk is now our home. This is our DNA.
