Our roots

Salix is Latin for willow. Aspirin was originally made from willow bark. It’s no coincidence. Our ability to provide fast, effective relief to the most challenging of communications headaches has made us a go to name for organisations in the health, education and social sectors.

We are known first and foremost for our responsiveness – responsive to client objectives, responsive to the media, responsive to each other, and responsive to the environment in which we live and work.

We are a highly specialist consultancy, passionate about our work and offering clients access to our very extensive networks – from treetops to grass roots – our in-depth understanding and knowledge of our sectors and their politics, and our thought provoking, award winning work. We are especially proud to have been named Specialist Consultancy of the Year by the PRCA

The challenges facing health, education and social care are unprecedented. Resources are dwindling while demand is soaring. Our clients  – from highly influential professional and membership bodies, healthcare charities and social enterprise to global corporations and world class hospitals – play an instrumental part in shaping the health, education and social care environments.

People are at the heart of what we do but our work is always strategic, focusing on client objectives and business-critical results. We develop and communicate agenda-shaping visions that translate to policy that delivers. We are leading the way in blurring the edges  between public relations, stakeholder engagement and social marketing. In the end, all that matters in today’s fast moving world is reaching the right people at the right time through the right channel and with the right message.
