PR Expert delivered the public relations X-Factor with a very limited budget. They deserved to win Campaign of the Year as it was classic public relations with no Above The Line support, nor an established brand/campaign over time.
Fidel Namisi, Co-founder and partner of Coal Stove Pictures
PR Expert provided Coal Stove Pictures with massive business value. We received an astronomical return in PR value from a really miniscule spend. The return on investment was unprecedented. The team at PR Expert is approachable, cooperative and friendly. It's great when a business becomes a foundation for a friendship. Recommending PR Expert goes without saying.
John Stebbing, Director, General Liability, Camargue
Even though a liability insurance policy protects the Insured against their legal liability, there is always the risk of the Insured suffering reputational damage, following a loss. As part of Camargue’s commitment to offer a more comprehensive and innovative solution, Camargue frequently utilises the services of PR Expert. The result has been a very rewarding success story for both Camargue and its clients.
