Dedicated copywriting and PR services delivered by two highly experienced professionals …..without conventional agency ‘packaging’.

The Aurora Partnership developed as a result of a growing list of PR programme's undertaken jointly by Ron Dyson and David Wilford. While both continue to provide independent freelance services, the two former colleagues work in partnership for larger accounts and major project work. This ensures guaranteed seniority, accountability and continuity at all levels and in all areas of support.
