Fabulous people who do a great job, super professional at a good price and always a pleasure to work with.
Paula has worked with Morecambe Bay Partnership on two important funding bids. From the start of the research to the final submission, Paula over-delivered in every respect. These tasks involved a mass of complex data with multiple partners and projects to co-ordinate, and were full of challenges: very tight deadlines, partners who redrew budgets at the 11th hour and other unforeseen curved balls, yet Paula handled the bid writing, budgets and relationships with charm, tact and focus. And yes, the bids were successful. Two very professionally delivered projects with a great results.
Justin and Paula are great assets to our team, they are professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about my business, bringing creative but practical ideas. They always take on the lion’s share of the work, doing as much as possible on our behalf and they are happy to share their skills and knowledge with our own team members. It’s great to have independent expert support and input to keep things fresh and in touch with the wider industry and trends.
Justin and Paula worked together with us to launch the Bay Cycle Way… it was, quite simply, a huge success. They were fun to work with, creative, knew the right people to bring in and delivered a fantastic result. Cheers! Please – go ride the route: http://www.morecambebay.org.uk/bay-cycle-way.
Paula works as part of our firm to provide hands-on business development and marketing support to our in-house team. We have found Paula to be an expert in her field and willing to go that extra mile to achieve great things for her clients. The quality of her work and the expertise and experience she brings to bear has helped Lamont Pridmore see a four-fold return on our marketing spend in recent years and attract hundreds of new clients to the firm. I cannot praise her work more highly.
Having worked with Justin and Paula on various projects over the last 5 years I can highly recommend them to anyone who wants creative, committed and customer orientated delivery. They are also a delight to work with.
We have worked with PS Business Matters for a number of years and have found Justin’s insight into the commercial aspects of marketing very beneficial. His ability to work practically and efficiently within our business has added value to the way we communicate our brands and the level of cooperation we have with our customers.
I firmly believe that I can’t be an expert in everything and so it’s really helpful to discuss all things marketing with PS Business Matters. They help me make good decisions and also look after many of the day to day marketing tasks leaving me free to concentrate on other areas of the business.
As an organisation with a small team it is sometimes helpful and necessary to bring in some outside help to work on specific projects. Paula’s approach to organising and delivering our event was flawless. I would recommend Paula without question.
