David Leck Associates is a marketing, PR and editorial agency delivering the full range of services designed to help clients address a broad mix of communications activity – creatively, effectively, efficiently, on time and within budget.

We work with businesses and organisations in sectors ranging from leisure, health and fitness to travel, charities, property, the law, training and management consultancy and across everything from strategic planning and crisis management to events, publications, websites and advertising.

David Leck is also part of a team of experienced writers – many working or former journalists – delivering engaging, targeted (and jargon-free) copy time and again across an extensive mix of subjects and for use in newspapers, magazines, web, digital, advertising and direct mail. Everything in fact from interviews, features and case studies to sales copy, speeches, tender documents and “ghosted” thought-leadership articles from the board room.


We have a proven track record gained over more than two decades and work with a carefully selected team of associates brought together specifically to address any communications opportunity or challenge.
