AN international PR and marketing firm has relocated to a new office near Alcester.

Talking Tortoise was founded by mum-of-three, Jessica Blyth-Sweetingham in 2014, specialising in marketing IT hardware, software and cybersecurity and has since grown to specialise in public relations and marketing services.

It is one of the first firms to move into the newly renovated Makers’ Space on the outskirts of Alcester.

Ms Blyth-Sweetingham said: “We’re delighted to launch this exciting new chapter of our business from our new base in Warwickshire.

"The business has come an incredibly long way since it was launched from my kitchen table back in 2014.

“We can’t wait to celebrate our ten-year anniversary next year, but before then we are hoping to be able to make lots of new business connections throughout Alcester and the surrounding area.’’

The firm’s new location can be easily identified by a life-size Galapagos tortoise model which proudly sits outside the entrance.

Talking Tortoise will be running a competition to name the tortoise at the official grand opening of The Makers’ Space on Saturday, July 22.
