Influence Associates was built to be the best Automotive PR, Motorsport PR and Classic Car PR agency in the world. We have the most senior leadership team in the industry and our goal is to apply this talent for the benefit of our clients worldwide.
Our founder Stuart Dyble has over 25 years experience leading global communications for Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo and Ford of Europe and for XIX Entertainment in LA.
We have former national magazine editors, managing directors of global websites and PR department directors. Our clients’ business is only handled by senior practitioners. We work for a wide variety of clients from global corporations and household names to start-ups, specialist brands and individuals. Most are leaders in their sector and they have retained us year-after-year.
We have often been described as the best-connected agency in the industry, giving our clients access to the top decision makers and opinion formers. We work in partnership with our clients and frequently go beyond our PR brief to positively shape their overall business strategy. In short, we believe our multi-talented team of experts can define and build brands, launch new products, protect reputations and tell your story more effectively than anyone else.
“I don't usually give PR people the time of day, but Stuart Dyble is one of the few I rate and listen to.”
“Over the course of my career, I've been lucky to work with several excellent PRs, but in the auto industry Stuart Dyble stands out as the best, always bringing that bit extra to any product launch or reputational issue, and always able to push the envelope.”
Nick Scheele - Former President, Ford Motor Company

There are many automotive PR agencies in the world but what sets Influence apart is our brand strategy work. It gives our clients a clear strategic edge, defines their point of difference and allows them to consistently build their brand equity in the marketplace.
“Influence played a pivotal role in first defining and then building our Advanced Engineering brand”
Mike O’Driscoll, CEO Williams F1 Group
It’s all about brand in the modern world. Clearly defining what you stand for and your point of difference and then creatively and consistently building that brand equity goes to the very heart of why Influence was founded. It runs like a stick of rock through everything we do.
We have helped our clients launch new brands, we’ve change perceptions of long-established brands and we’ve projected and built brand awareness and equity for our clients in global markets. It is what we do better than any of our competitors and nothing gives us greater satisfaction as a team.
Most PR agencies are promoters but there is another side to the business, which is protection. Influence has decades of experience in corporate communications and crisis PR. We have handled some of the biggest issues in our industry. Our clients often say that some of our best work is what we keep out of the media.
Our view is simple. If you really understand how and when to promote, and how and when to protect – and you can do that successfully over time – then you can truly manage reputation. There are limited case studies in this section as the work we do for our clients is often sensitive and we take client confidentiality very seriously.

In the multi-media age content really is king. It’s a concept we embraced and pioneered in the automotive industry, utilising our in-house team of videographers, presenters, photographers and copywriters. We conceive, script, shoot, edit, distribute and socialise content for our clients, building their fame, scale and engagement across the world.
We always strive to go beyond our pure PR brief to positively contribute and shape the overall strategy of our clients. Our huge experience and industry relationships enable us to advise clients on their strategy and introduce new business. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than connecting our clients for mutual benefit and integrating them into our network. That’s ultimately what we do and why we called the agency Influence.
