With a booming aesthetics market and a wealth of brands, products and services to choose from, the success of any new product launch hinges on effective differentiation and a proven, robust approach to market entry.
Over the years, Kendrick PR has developed a network of influential industry leaders and has worked to support brands from technological concept to full commercialisation, as well as revitalising older brands with a fresh approach.
Our strategic approach thinks outside the traditional ‘PR’ box - incorporating sales strategy and support, KOL development and influencer marketing, social media and content marketing alongside successful trade and consumer media engagement - delivering market launches which cut through the competition and achieve tangible business results.

Delivers regular business articles on PR & Marketing for Aesthetic Medicine
Regular expert speaker on the business agenda at Aesthetic Medicine Live
Julia Kendrick has contributed regularly to Aesthetic Medicine both as a writer in the magazine and as a speaker on the business agenda at our event – Aesthetic Medicine Live. From an editor and events organiser point of view Julia is one of the loveliest people to deal with. She is highly professional and conducts herself in a manner that means she has become one of our go-to aesthetic business experts. Her knowledge and passion for what she does is unrivalled and she manages to make complex topics surrounding PR, marketing and managing your reputation simple, digestible and easy to understand. I’ve personally used the advice she gave in one of her articles about how to deal with negative comments online and her simple tips worked quickly and effectively and made a stressful situation far more easy to deal with. I cannot recommend Julia highly enough.

It has been imperative for Radara to work with individuals who not only share our vision but who can support us with excellent core skills to drive our business forward successfully. We have found these in abundance working with Julia. She provided a high level of expertise and commitment and has an innate ability to know what needs to be done, often taking a proactive approach which has been critical for our organisation as we evolve and grow. She has provided ‘peace of mind’ for us in knowing that we can 100% be sure that she will deliver in full and on time and often goes above and beyond to ensure we meet our objectives. This has allowed the internal team to focus on other key priorities whilst being reassured that Julia has things in hand. In terms of the aesthetic industry, Julia has a wealth of experience to draw on and is a popular industry expert who others look to and admire. It is a privilege working with Julia and we would have no hesitation in recommending her.
