Freelance team members. Our core team is small to ensure that we can offer our clients value-for-money. However we have a back-up team of PR experts across the South West with a wealth of experience and upon whom we can call on either for very specialist communications and public relations work or when we get exceptionally busy. We will always bring in the appropriate resources to ensure we meet our clients’ needs in a timely way.
