TESTIMONIALS

 

“I get hundreds of emails every day – and a lot from PRs. To be honest the majority go straight in the bin. But stories from Prominent are different. The team has the ability, knowledge and experience to find the cut through and give me the stories I know people want to read.”

-Richard Porritt, business editor, East Anglian Daily Times and Eastern Daily Press

 

“The work Prominent put in to putting our town on the map has been incredible. In the time we have been working together we have had national recognition for Woodbridge and created key messaging which has given 184 business members unity. Prominent have recognised all the unique attributes our town and community possess and have been able to sing about them in a way we never could – giving us a collective voice and allowing us to really celebrate the many things we are proud of.”

-James Lightfoot, chairman of Choose Woodbridge

 

“The Prominent team are a pleasure to work with. They may be based in Suffolk, but they can reach and connect with media outlets right across the UK. Their contacts in regional and national newsrooms are second-to-none. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for PR, social media, design, branding, event management and copywriting.”

-Matthew Townshend, director and producer, Matthew Townshend Productions

 

"I have tasked Emily with several projects which involved her having to get an understanding of complex processes, then understand my target audience and then stick to a very specific brief given to her. Emily stuck perfectly to the brief and the transition from concept to execution and final product was smooth and required very little input by me. This is great as I can get on with running my business and can treat Emily and Prominent like my own marketing department as opposed to a time-consuming outsourcing activity that is hard for me to trust and control. After Emily had done work for one of my businesses, I persuaded my partners in a new venture to trust me when choosing her for the task of marketing for us. After seeing the results, my partners were so pleased they understood the decision and now we won’t be going anywhere else for future projects."

-Stephen Brown, XBECS

 

"We have a small and dynamic marketing team who have managed our advertising, artwork, social media and PR historically in-house, but we were getting to a point when we needed to make a decision - do we employ a new person to help share the ever increasing workload or look for external help? After talking to various local PR and marketing companies we felt Prominent was the best fit for us. We have not looked back since."

-Tarnia Robertson, managing director, Ufford Park Golf and Spa

It was a big decision to take on another business while still developing the current one, but through strong leadership clear focus and delivering a good service the business has clearly prospered. There is a clear vision and culture for the business stemming from sound financial controls and empowerment of staff.”

-Institute of Directors judges' 

 

"This clever campaign impressed the judges with its effective use of social media, excellent coverage and great links with key targets - bloggers and supermarkets. It demonstrated how to develop and deliver an effective campaign on a small budget and was able to use a topical news issue to great effect with clear evidence of its success."

-CIPR Pride Awards for Anglia, Thames and Chiltern - Low Budget Campaign of the Year

 

"The team came up with a truly inspired concept to use children (and drama students) as a medium to articulate the campaign messages in their homes, thereby turning the children into advocates for the objectives. The best influencers are the next generation and the involvement of school children throughout, including in the creation of the campaign character, significantly contributed to the campaign’s success. The development of the character fully engaged with audiences and served to cleverly reinforce the brand. This was a great multi-channel campaign with long wrap-arounds."

-CIPR Pride Awards for Anglia, Thames and Chiltern - Education Campaign of the Year

 

“The judges were impressed with Abi’s passion for public relations and her obvious appetite for learning and desire to share this with others. She clearly demonstrated a breadth of communication skills, from understanding audiences through to managing internal stakeholder expectations. Abi evidenced grit and determination in the complex delivery of a mayoral electoral communications campaign, set within a challenging and politically-charged environment.”

“Helen is a dynamic leader and this has allowed her business to be shaped in a specific way which allows flexibility and growth. Helen is thorough and calculates risk extremely well especially when it comes to staffing and tendering for new business – if it is not right for the organisation Helen has a strong will to say no. With high standards of customer service at the forefront of everything Helen does, her business has gone from strength to strength. The positive reputation that her business has secured has been built upon her ethos of creating a team of people that companies can relate to, connect to and value.”

-East Anglian Business Awards judges
