Throughout my career – first in the media and now in SME PR and photography, I’ve always sought to create and sustain excellent long-term mutually beneficial relationships with my clients and contacts.
My success in achieving this can be measured by the number and quality of the LinkedIn recommendations I’ve received over the years from clients, managers, colleagues and contacts. The full list can be seen on my LinkedIn profile, but here are some most relevant to anyone looking to use my services.
