Letter - Agencies need to charge their worth

Of course clients want a senior consultant to stay on their case (Feature, 14 September).

CHA board directors attend client meetings at least quarterly to offer a fresh perspective; we meet our clients formally and informally away from client programmes; and we contribute directly to campaigns, designing research, writing reports and speeches. But clients have to keep to their side of the bargain. Too often, PR is viewed as a cheap option. If clients want senior counsel they must get used to paying a different hourly rate. And PR agencies must learn to charge with more confidence for their contribution.
