David Morris, the international (Middle East and Asia) jeweller, appointed Dragon to devise and implement a PR strategy to drive footfall of UHNWI’s into the New Bond Street store and to underpin the company’s premium status. David Morris is family owned, led by Jeremy Morris, son of founder David. The New Bond Street store is one of the few left on New Bond Street that has a workshop on site where craftsman make the jewellery.
Dragon has sought to use David Morris’ natural strengths as an ultra-high-quality jewellery designer with great provenance to position the company as one of the small group of British luxury brands which commands the attention of the UHNW international audience.
The brand profile is being supported by a small calendar of carefully-curated events which associate the brand in the public eye with its target audience and by marketing initiatives which link David Morris with other appropriate British brands and their UHNW client bases.

Dragon’s Property team has advised some of the world’s leading real estate developers, fund managers and private equity firms. We have extensive experience in developing and leading UK and pan-European PR strategies on behalf of clients. Whether that be major office developments seeking to establish a new business location, generating interest for residential-led regeneration projects or supporting funds seeking to raise or deploy equity, Dragon has a first class track record for delivering strategies that make a real difference to business.
Dragon was appointed as the retained PR adviser to Lend Lease, Europe’s second largest real estate and construction business, to undertake a transformational PR programme as the business sought to become a major European industry player across property disciplines. At the same time, on a project level, PR strategies were launched to help establish a new office district in Stratford by helping to attract major global tenants to locate there. At Elephant & Castle, a PR mandate sought to establish Lend Lease at the forefront of the regeneration of a new Central London residential hub and support sales of thousands of new homes.
Over the course of the campaign, Lend Lease attracted its first two major tenants to Stratford (The FCA and TfL) and sales of residential units at Elephant & Castle have completed at a rate far ahead of expectations. Dragon continues to be a retained adviser at Elephant & Castle.
Reputation, brand and situations are all now subjected to a relentless 24 hour media cycle, from news organisations’ online sites to blogs to social media.

Dragon’s Partners and Associates are dedicated to these tasks on behalf of our clients on an hour by hour basis, including working with a hand-picked team of best-in-class specialists when additional appropriate resource is required.
