Winward Media is a father and son team of Neill Watson and Adam Watson. We help brands and businesses navigate their way through the complex world of modern marketing and PR. Many of our clients are finding it harder than ever to stay abreast of the multiple social media channels, to think of interesting ways to engage with customers, journalists and press outlets and of course, to create exciting content for their own websites.
We help you map a path through the different options.
While our clients may at first appear to be diverse, you will quickly realise that they have many things in common. Above all, they share a desire to create relationships with customers, visitors and guests as well as complimentary businesses within their area of operations.
We help our clients to develop and build upon these relationships using the exciting communications channels available in today’s world. You can read more about our areas of expertise here.
The modern digital world we live in gives brands and businesses of all sizes the opportunity to reach their customers directly as never before. Whether you are a large PLC, a regional tourist attraction or a small collection of holiday cottages, today we all have ways to talk directly to the people we need to reach. We help you work out what to say and who to talk to.
Neill has a long career in sales and marketing, including a period selling specialist cars, managing motorsport and being one of the pioneering Lexus salesmen when there was just one car model and only 35 UK dealers, Neill moved into photography and writing for editorial motoring magazines in 2002 and has worked with major publishers and brands in the UK, Europe and USA.
In today’s modern culture of ‘always on’ internet and multiple social media channels, he realised that the same skills he had learned first hand in sales, marketing, writing and photography were very useful tools for the clients he was gaining. While the platform and method of contact may have changed, the simple rule that people like to deal with people is still valid.
Cameraman and DoP with a creative vision and passion for film making that belies his years, Adam believes in delivering the best possible result from any given brief. His ability to create films that are both useful marketing tools and also cinematically crafted is something that clients are reaching our for in increasing numbers.
Add in a passion for films of all genres, a compulsion to pick up a camera and start shooting and a desire to raise the bar higher every time and you have a truly addicted cameraman.
His grasp of combining cinematic filming techniques with modern social media channels is one of the hallmarks of his work. Also known for some of the most off-the-wall selfies and a love of making his own banana loaf.
