BG Futures, Bishop Grosseteste University’s (BGU) Business and Enterprise Centre, recently hosted a networking event enabling organisations in the centre to explore how engaging in effective PR can help them thrive.


Rob Tomkinson from Carrington Communications, based in BG Futures, hosted the event and discussed how organisations could engage with PR on a budget. Rob brings over a decade of PR and communications experience to the business and has worked for national and regional businesses before founding Carrington.

Rob’s vision for Carrington is to give Lincoln's businesses the PR agency they deserve. The team is built on experts who specialise in the region’s biggest industries.

Carrington help SMES and small businesses reach their customers and make the most of new digital opportunities to become more profitable using a variety of methods, and pride themselves on delivering value for money.

Becky Goodman, Enterprise Development Manager at BGU, said:

“Rob’s event was a great success and was of real benefit to other small businesses in the BG Futures network.

“Seeing Carrington go from strength to strength, adding to their team and moving from the smallest office, to one of BG Futures’ largest offices in less than 6 months, clearly demonstrates how successful the Carrington Communications brand is becoming, and just how good the team are at what they do!”
