"David Stoch is a super-persistent PR who always offers relevant stories and ideas that are worth publishing." ~ Lucy Tobin, Senior News and Features Writer, Evening Standard
"As a Forbes contributor and journalist with the UK national press, I've known David for a number of years, and over that time he has become one of my most trusted sources. When I am on the tightest of deadlines, whether it is a case study, expert comment, or some key information I need, he always delivers, exactly to the brief." ~ Alison Coleman, Forbes / The Guardian
"I have found David to be incredibly hardworking on behalf of his clients. He is news savvy and his creativity is something appreciated by me and other journalists looking to present sometimes technical or niche subjects in an attractive and accessible way. He is an excellent relationship builder with media which is now essential for the 'conversation' comms now required." ~ Jayne Atherton, Business and Finance Editor, Metro
"David is a rare beast in the PR industry: he consistently produces top quality stories, great spokespeople, and never lets you down even on tight deadlines. I've worked with him for 10 years on dozens of stories, and he always knows the angles that work best for the publication, whether it's a national newspaper or a trade mag. It's been a total pleasure working with him." ~ Rebecca Burn-Callander, Enterprise Editor, The Daily Telegraph
"David Stoch is one the first PRs I turn to when I am stuck for ideas, case studies or comments from experts. David has helped me with many stories over the last decade and he is always helpful, efficient and friendly." ~ Linda Whitney, Daily Mail

Started in 2009, Meerkat PR is led by publicity specialist David Stoch, who has for nearly twenty years specialised in high profile national press campaigns.
David started his career in entertainment PR before moving into business sector publicity, where he represented everything from one-man micro businesses to AIM-listed companies wanting to raise their profiles through noteworthy press coverage. Results have been regular client appearances on the BBC, Financial Times to international publications, and popular consumer press such as the Daily Mail to the Lad Bible.
His talent lies in his ability to work with an individual or company and immediately identify and develop the story that will capture the imagination of the press, and the world. David has represented a number of businesses in a diverse range of sectors, from early years to technology, retail to legal, training and development to commercial property.
David excels at working with the personalities behind the companies, bringing out their stories and best positioning their expertise. This has resulted in extraordinary press exposure, the results of which can be seen across case studies.
Beyond our clients, it’s our relationships with the press which are key to us. These relationships are based and trust and credibility built up over many years which is why we’re proud to feature what leading media brands and journalists think about us as an agency providing them stories on a regular basis.
It is inspiring to work with David, as his enthusiasm and drive are infectious. When brainstorming he asks challenging questions which draw out ideas to create interesting stories, and then delivers on getting them published.
Meerkat PR has been providing PR to Russell HR Consulting for several years and we’re a very good partnership. David takes the time to grasp the nature of the work we do as well as our business ethos. He “sells” me well and comes up with some great ideas for articles. In consequence we get excellent coverage. Local, national, online, print, tabloid, broadsheet, trade, and general – you name it; we regularly have a presence there. He is responsive to requests and achieves good results. I’m grateful to him for giving raising the profile of the HR Headmistress and making her a controversial national brand!
Since we engaged you, you’ve under-promised and over-delivered. You’re always proactively looking for stories about BNI that might be of interest to the media. You always look at what is most likely to gain coverage, rather than just looking at what story we may want to plug, and there is no doubt that the creative angles that you have come up with are what has achieved results. In the past five months alone, you’ve managed to get us coverage in three national papers, five local papers and at least ten online business titles – and we know there is a lot more in the pipeline.
David supported A.F. Blakemore & Son Ltd in developing a PR campaign to support our end of year financial accounts success. During the three-months that this campaign lasted, David was able to secure significant national newspaper coverage in The Sunday Telegraph along with exposure in key trade and regional titles. This initial increase in the company’s profile was then followed up with a series of leads to further develop the company’s image across a range of publications. During the time that I have worked with David I have found him to be a tenacious, committed and an extremely proactive PR professional who has the ability to identify new angles and approaches to how the company can position itself to a diverse external audience.
David has amazing energy and drive, and is constantly looking for creative and original initiatives to promote our company and products. You can’t do better than create the opportunity to meet The Queen in order to promote your product and your company. At a personal level it was an opportunity of a lifetime to meet the Queen. Thank you David.
