In addition to my skills experience, further value that I can add is by recommending associate businesses that I know and trust. I only do this where I have worked with the businesses over a significant duration.
Making recommendations in any walk of life creates an association between the individual making the recommendation and the person or business the propose. As such, I don’t do it lightly.
Below are a small selection of businesses and individuals where I would be entirely happy to make this recommendation.
The Really Helpful Marketing Company have been working with me for over 3 years across a wide range of engagements from brand development to creative design and build.
I have consistently found the core team that I work with (Gareth, Ian and Claire) to be open and honest. They consistently set realistic expectations, and then deliver against these.
They won’t always give you the answer that you want, which I entirely respect. Instead they offer healthy challenge, but ultimately deliver against the client needs.
My relationship with JBPM stretches back over a number of years, and across various types of work. Most recently I have worked with them on the development and fulfilment of print materials. I have found their knowledge and ability to deliver a quality product consistently high.
They have a much broader range of services, but it is Print design and fulfilment that I would propose and use without hesitation.
When working to gain PR coverage, I have worked with Peak Marketing on and off for 3 years or so. It’s run by Anne Staunton who knows her stuff, is efficient and responsive.
We have worked together on the formulation of awards submissions and press releases. We were short-listed in several major industry awards, and routinely secure positive press coverage from our releases.
Peak offer a broader range of services than I have used, but it’s the areas above where I can recommend their services.
If you’d like to know more about me or my experience, and how I can help your business, please get in touch. I’d love to chat.
