Clients and Testimonials

Kate Mavor

Sam Sweeney

Bracewell Stirling Architects

“In the uncharted territory of recession and ever changing legislation on global warming we wanted our recent development successes recognised. Alan’s ability to understand our business and his reputation and valuable connections won a surprising degree of access to key media figures who published opinion and commentary from us. All this has raised our profile.”
