These are a selection of PR testimonials for Artisan:

“I have worked with Rob for approaching 2 years and he has been instrumental in the tremendous success of our various PR campaigns including articles in the Daily Telegraph (3 times), The Scotsman (twice) as well as various UK and international oil and gas related magazines and journals both online and offline, including the BBC. He is also an extremely personable character and great value for the tremendous efforts that he puts into every project.”

Duncan Freer Managing Director of Oil and Gas Job Search

“Rob has really helped our PR effort and clearly knows a lot of the right people in publishing. Unlike other firms we have used in the past he makes most of the running himself rather than expecting us to do the work.”

Paul Davies partner at Lane-Smith & Shindler

“I brought in Rob to provide PR support for our App School project, and he has been great in getting results and coverage for us. Understanding that time was of the essence, Rob agreed to meet and work over a weekend, showing a real commitment to the project. He used his extensive contacts in both ‘traditional’ and ‘social’ media to spread to word to our target audience. Although I have know Rob for many years, I hadn’t used him until this point but I always found him to be knowledgeable, professional and likeable. Now that I’ve actually had the chance to work with Rob I would recommend him to anyone looking for PR support!”

Phil Birchenall, The White Room

Creative consultancy that connects people, technology and businesses across the creative economy.

“Rob was one of the very early adopters of digital strategies in PR. He saw the opportunities, developed the techniques and achieved excellent results. He also gives a damn. In an industry cursed with ego, he is a down to earth bloke who takes the time to deeply understand your business and your audience. That’s how he achieves such excellent results.”

Simon Wharton managing director of digital agency PushON

“At first we thought PR was only for the big boys but then we met Rob. Rob took the time to sit down and explain the importance of it to smaller businesses. He put together a plan of action; found angles that would (and did) work and gained us lots of excellent exposure in the media as a result. Our expectations were easily exceeded.”

Mark Greenwood who runs the popular Simply Networking events

“Rob is an expert media relations practitioner with excellent contacts both in traditional media and through social networking. His writing style, manner of approach and ability to generate an angle that working journalists will genuinely find of interest put him ahead of a crowded field in the competitive world of PR, as does his ability to think on his feet and build relationships. His PR clients can be assured that they are in a safe pair of hands and watch the media coverage stack up.”

Linda Jones owner Passionate Media

“Rob is a master at getting your business into the media – TV, radio and print. His contacts book must be worth more than a penny black! He is diligent, full of creative ideas and has secured our firm tremendous publicity across a wide range of outlets.”

Mark Simpson tax saving director at accountancy practice Simpson Burgess Nash

“Rob has worked with my company for over 2 years providing PR and has helped establish who we are in a competitive market. It’s helped us win new clients and build our brand. He is extremely determined and goes the extra mile.”
