How our story started

Agile is at the heart of everything we do, so it’s no surprise our story has had a few iterations.

We were founded in 2016 by Rachel Foster (née Picken), a Chartered PR and Agile professional who saw how combining the two could supercharge your organisation.
In our previous iteration, we were known as Agile PR, where we delivered impactful communications with a twist.

But as we grew and evolved, we felt like that didn’t fully encompass the incredible communications work we do with our clients.

This is why, In early 2023, we reemerged as The Agile Communications Agency.

“We’re here to help your organisation reach its goals through strategic, integrated comms that really work. Collaboration is always at the heart of everything we do.”

– Rachel Foster,

The Agile Communications Agency Founder

Our Values

We champion diversity. We’re focused on creating an inclusive workplace that embraces a wide range of ideas and opinions.
We reflect the beautiful and diverse world we’re trying to improve with inclusive communications. Everyone deserves to be seen, heard, and valued.
Embracing diversity and inclusion fuels innovation and makes us better.
We’re true allies and we speak up.

We’re a team of doers. We take ownership of our roles and workflow. Self-organising teams FTW (For The Win). We do the right thing, even when no one is watching. And when things go wrong, we know that we all did the right thing with the information we had available at the time. We can’t be an effective team with a “blame culture”. We believe in respect and integrity always, for ourselves and others. 

As a team, we’re hungry and helpful with high standards.

Humour brings people together. It helps us build rapport and better relationships with people.
We’re all human, and we want to connect with our colleagues and clients on a human level.
And we think humour is often the secret ingredient required to elevate creative thinking!
We like to make work enjoyable, but we will never make another person the butt of a joke.

We’re friendly, warm, and knowledgeable.
We’re committed to finding the silver lining and know how to reframe/reposition for success.
We never want someone to feel less than or negative after an interaction with us.
We uplift and make people feel good, through all our communication.

This is at the heart of everything we do. We’re open and encourage feedback at every step
of the way, whether that be internally or with our clients.
We take the time to listen, encourage and respect everyone’s opinions. Collaboration can take us to places we wouldn’t have been able to go to alone. Together, we can be extraordinary.

We find the right solutions for our clients that will deliver maximum value.
We’re focused on creating long-term collaborative partnerships with them – we’re not focused on quick money grabs. We set ambitious goals and we make them happen.
We succeed when our customers succeed. We deliver comms and coaching that work.
