A Sheffield Welcome for London PR Woman as She Brings Her Virtual Agency Model to the Region

29th November 2017

Sabine Raabe linked up with the Wosskow Brown Foundation when she attended the first Sheffield Connect Business Conference and won their raffle prize of a limited edition signed print by renowned local artist Joe Scarborough.

Biscuit PR has now adopted the Wosskow Brown Foundation as its new CSR partner with the commitment to give 10% of their time to the #WB100 programme in support of local enterprises and organisations. Sabine Raabe founded Biscuit PR fifteen years ago as the UK's first virtual PR agency to bring together top talent who work with clients in the same way a traditional agency does. The difference being that everyone works remote, meaning clients invest in brains, not 'bored rooms' and receive better value for money. A major strength is the senior level of the team and emphasis on collaboration. With a network of specialists in PR, Politics, Journalism, Law and Finance, Biscuit PR advises UK and international clients on all aspects of corporate communications. The original incentive for Sabine to set up a virtual agency was to adapt her PR career around a disabled child and young family. She quickly found other communicators at the top of their profession who were looking for a more flexible way of working without giving up on a career. Since then technology has made it easier than ever to service clients in real time wherever they are and virtual working has really taken off in the PR industry. 'We are delighted our raffle prize is such a fitting welcome to Sheffield for Sabine and Biscuit PR.' says Jim Lawson, Programme Director of the Wosskow Brown Foundation. 'With our #WB100 programme we are aiming to help 100 businesses, charities, social enterprises and sports clubs to assist in the regeneration of our local economy. The support Biscuit PR has pledged to provide as our new CSR partner will be a very relevant and much needed contribution for our members.' 'We want to become a valuable resource for businesses in the region with expansion plans.' says Sabine Raabe, Founder of Biscuit PR. 'Sheffield is our new HQ and our partnership with the Wosskow Brown Foundation takes us right into the heart of the city's thriving start-up and entrepreneur community. I am looking forward to getting involved and helping local businesses and organisations achieve their ambitions for growth.' Biscuit PR is taking up residence at The Circle in Sheffield and maintains a London presence to keep its links with the City for international clients. Sabine Raabe supports young PR talent under the PRCA Mentoring Programme and is an elected member of the PRCA Council for 2018. The Wosskow Brown Foundation is the charitable foundation created by Sheffield law firm Wosskow Brown to formalise the commitment their business has given to local communities and individuals over many years.
