Catalyst PR led by Mr. Ramkumar Singaram, has been our trusted partner for almost a decade. They are our go to agency whenever we need any PR activity in Chennai and south Indian market. The agency doesn’t believe only in execution but also in giving the relevant counsel which has helped us in taking the right decisions and ultimately benefited the brands. I also admire the systems and processes followed by Catalyst PR which ensure that any given task is properly accomplished. Their strong support helped a young agency like ours to shelve plans for opening our own office in the city thus saving costs and still getting great results. I wish them all the best for future.

Totem Advertising & PR Pvt Ltd, Hyderabad.
In today’s media-rich market, the importance of a PR agency who can understand an organization’s vision, mission and objective can effectively help reach out to a wider audience and build long-lasting positive relationships with the masses. Glad we found one in Catalyst PR who with their 360degree media reach helped us again the much-required publicity for our first of a kind international conference organized in Feb 2020 for the differently–abled and intellectually challenged, that too in a short span of time. Catalyst handled our inaugural and valedictory event in addition to the curtain raiser event. Attended by high profile govt. officials and leading socialites the International event was a great success and resulted in more than 150 media coverage. Hoping that Ramkumar Singaram and team will continue to be a ‘Catalyst’ for change in the development of differently–abled and intellectually challenged.

With an aim to rebrand Engineering as a promising course that has brighter prospects for a fulfilling career amongst the aspirants, we approached Mr. Ramkumar of catalyst PR, who understood our requirement and shared a strategic communication PR plan. Beginning from why we should integrate the awareness sessions by key speakers and the press conference to educate the media on Engineering as a great career, his team meticulously planned a multi-city multimedia PR drive. Complete with a high profile press conference in Chennai, where the TN State Higher Education Minister inaugurated the event, everything was orchestrated well by Catalyst PR. Their effective PR strategy not only helped us get widespread media coverage across four Tamil Nadu cities, but also helped us reach out to thousands of Engineering aspirants and prospective students and also connect with experienced faculty and potential recruiters who happen to be the decision-makers too.

Mr. Vijay Viswanathan

TV advertorial is a great platform and effective way of reaching out to masses, making us visible all over the world. Participation in Expos, Students direct counseling or advertising in regional or national newspaper did not offer us this kind of result. Above all, advertorial gave us the advantage of holistic detailing of our services. Catalyst PR’s expert consultancy helped us enjoy the advantage of this platform.

Beyond advertising we at SRM were looking out for a professional agency that could help us with a precise and effective PR communication and strategy that could highlight the uniqueness of our brand and how we are different from the other hotel and hospitality management institutes in the industry. That’s when Catalyst PR set the stage for us with the right media mix of both print and electronic channels keeping in mind our target audience. Regular on-air slots in television channels and continued media visibility on print through varied editorial and advertorial services with constant reach and impact evaluation is working wonders for us.
Dr. D. Antony Ashok Kumar
SRM Institute of Hotel Management, Chennai.
When a startup like ours invests in and engages in a well thought out and sustained PR effort, the ROI can be incredibly valuable and that’s exactly what we, ‘FinWego’ derived when we engaged Catalyst Public Relations as part of our brand-building exercise. Catalyst PR helped us enhance our awareness drive by integrating strategic PR with our business marketing plans, thus fostering our positive image among the target audience. An in-depth advertorial on FINWEGO’s loan offerings for private school teachers and educationists was published in Daily Thanthi and Editorial in a leading Tamil women’s magazine, resulting in more visibility and new business enquiries.
Ms. Pavee Ramanisankar

Catalyst PR is a step ahead of other agencies in their knowledge about the very diverse and complex regional media, particularly in South India. They understood our requirements quickly and in a short amount of time, they organized a successful press conference for us in Chennai. Although we have a corporate PR agency, we wanted targeted regional coverage. Catalyst PR helped us penetrate the southern market, particularly in Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad and got us widely covered in print, electronic and online media. The team led by Mr. Ramkumar is attentive, extremely well-organized and works hard to garner good media wins for its clients. I found it refreshing that Catalyst was transparent and clear about expectations, they are a role model for other agencies to follow.

Our association with Catalyst PR for over 12 years has made us grow bigger and better and move up the growth ladder.

When we approached Ramkumar Singaram with a brief on our new product and our singing of MOU with BioPipe, US, he so professionally guided us on the selling point for media and what would really work and be impactful with a wider reach and guaranteed coverage. With Catalyst PR crafting the right media pitch, it was half the battle won.

Catalyst PR have been true professionals who have been instrumental in creating a strong brand value proposition for our company in this very competitive space.

We received a good 25 print, 41 online and 8 Television coverage for the event. Also, a pre–conference novel photo shoot organized by Catalyst PR was a great value add to the whole PR initiative.
Mr. R.S. Munirathinam
RMK Constructions and Housing, Chennai.
When we were exploring avenues to announce our expansion into Software Services from being a pure–play Data Services firm, Catalyst PR counseled that one-on-one forum will give us the right visibility than pitching through press releases. It really worked; the result and reach surpassed our expectations as we got covered in a leading publication.
Mr. Karthik Karunakaran
Mobius Knowledge Services, Chennai.
Catalyst PR led by the dynamic Mr. Ramkumar, along with his highly talented team, proved that it’s the story value and the strength of the pitch that attracts good media coverage. The team crafted an effective PR strategy particularly around the symphonic poem as it was the first of its kind in India. They created interesting news value with virtual press briefings which was as impactful as a live face to face press conference. It was followed by one-on-one media interactions once again using virtual technology thereby generating quality media articles and stories. The overall PR initiative resulted in coverage by 28 print mediums 15 mainlines and 51 online publications. I can’t thank Mr. Ramkumar and his PR team from Catalyst enough for their help in achieving excellent media coverage for our album.
Mr. Ganesh B. Kumar
Sprit of Humanity – A Symphonic Music Album, Chennai.
We were assigned the launch of poWer 99’, a fuel brand for high end cars and bikes, the first of its kind in Tamil Nadu by HPCL. To attract enough publicity, we were looking for a right partner and reached out to Catalyst PR. We planned a small launch in association with our parent company HPCL and planned to invite a few members of the media. However, Catalyst transformed everything with an exciting strategy. HPCL went on to invite Mr. M.C. Sampath, Hon’ble Minister for Industries, for the launch, hoping to garner more media interest as advised by Catalyst. This completely changed the dimension of the press meet and the interest generated in it by the media also multiplied by many times. We received very good visibility and plenty of coverage in the electronic and print media. Our parent company HPCL was happy and satisfied.
