Testimonials

We’re proud to work with a wide and diverse range of businesses. Here’s what some of them have to say about us. 

“We are delighted with the partnership Prestbury Marketing have forged with us.  They offer a rare combination of expertise with a practical approach that reflects the competitive and fast moving trading environment we operate in.  The quality of work is excellent and has saved considerable time compared with other agencies I have engaged with in the past. I put this down to their partnership approach, they don’t just detail what is required in a brief, they really understand what we are trying to achieve.

I particularly value their commerciality.  While the creative output in the work has been very strong, it has all been done with a view to achieving the right results for us. Many agencies stop at the point of producing a good looking piece of work, Prestbury Marketing want to know that it worked too. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jenny and Darren.”

Name

I met Darren Stevens when I first moved back to Gloucestershire, from Cornwall after 16 years and everyone said he is a lovely guy to work with, very well connected, loved by all AND a fantastic marketeer!

I have to say they were right – a lovely, positive, enthusiastic, well connected, brilliant guy and knows his stuff!

He supports so many good causes, always gives back and is just simply a joy to work with – very lucky to know him and work with him!

Their measured, tactical approach to marketing and their disciplined, diligent attitude to their work makes them the ultimate professionals. Applying modern marketing techniques and maximising traditional methods to a clearly defined strategy. The benefit to our business is not limited to marketing as their commercial acumen and ability to see the ‘big picture’ means they add value throughout all aspects of the company.”

Scott Brown –  Finance Director, Glevum

“From my perspective this is just what we needed: a fresh pair of eyes offering critical but constructive comments. We will be able to use all the information we have gathered to develop a plan of action for taking the site to the next level. The great thing about this type of activity is that we will be able to see what impact it has through the stats etc… as well as by talking to the members and clients on a regular basis.

I think you followed the brief exactly as we had hoped and made what could have been quite an uncomfortable exercise very enjoyable. I am sure that the growth of your client base owes much to your engaging style. I am certain we will be back in touch when we next need a fresh perspective on our activities..”

Leighton Jones, –  Head of Corporate Communications, Campden BRI

“Hughes Paddison started to work with Darren in 2010, and from the outset we have been impressed by his knowledge of his subject, and his enthusiasm for the job. He deals with all enquiries in a prompt and pragmatic manner, and has proved willing to go ‘above and beyond’ his brief – for example, by inviting us to events attended by friends and colleagues in the local business community, to broaden our exposure.

We are looking forward to tackling new challenges with him into the longer term future, and view him as an asset to our business.”

Rachel Stewart –  Director, Hughes Paddison

“With ambitious growth plans for the business we knew that we needed a fast and significant boost to our Marketing and PR capabilities. Prestbury Marketing were able to provide us with a complete outsourced Marketing and PR resource. What they have achieved has exceeded our expectations. They are always there when we need them and have responded to and turned around some very tight timescales. They have given us an approach and plan that we didn’t have before and their enthusiasm, knowledge and pro-activity is always evident. We would highly recommend Prestbury Marketing and look forward to them helping to take Green World Innovations to the next level, both here in the UK and in Europe.”

Martin Booth –  Sales Director, Green World Innovations ltd

“We first came across Prestbury Marketing when we started to use them on aspects of our Marketing. It quickly became apparent to us that they would be a great asset to our clients as well and that they had the potential to significantly accelerate their growth. We set Prestbury Marketing the challenge of coming up with a solution that we could offer to our clients. The result is the jointly branded Simplicity and Prestbury Marketing Service for Recruitment Agencies. We have had some great feedback from our clients that this was just the service they were looking for. We are also seeing very practical examples where the service is helping our clients grow their business faster and avoid pitfalls that they would have otherwise fallen into. We are excited by the potential of this service and look forward to developing it further in the future.”

Jonathan Viney – Customer Service Director, Simplicity 

“Darren’s understanding of business and his eye for recommending an opportunity that sometimes already exists within an organisation is a tremendous asset. His attention to detail doesn’t get in the way when it comes to his ability to get speedily to the issues that really matter.
Whilst I am sure Darren has and does work for a large companies, the attraction for the smaller business is having its own (drip feed) sales & marketing department that is “on call” when you need it, without the permanent overhead and at a level of seniority and experience that would otherwise be out of reach. I would sincerely recommend Darren to any business as I am sure any business would benefit.”

Martin Seccombe – Owner, am-pm design and print 

Our work with Darren Stevens and his team at Prestbury Marketing aimed to reduce our investment and resource in our marketing activities. We were thrilled when Jenny Jervis took on this opportunity with vigour from the outset and put together a FastTrack implementation program which resulted in immediate benefits. This was beyond our expectations in terms of cost savings and the speed with which we accomplished our initial goal.

What we have appreciated most about working with Prestbury Marketing is their ability to keep everyone happy, and deliver the expected results in a timely manner.”

Kevin Harris – Head of Business Services, Britannia Construction

I have worked with Darren at Prestbury Marketing for just over 5 years. He has helped me with many aspects of Marketing over the years from direct mail campaigns, email marketing, social media and managing our telemarketing activity. His commitment and enthusiasm towards his clients is excellent – He is always at the end of an email offering help and guidance.

I have benefited greatly from working with Darren over the years and believe I have become a very confident and successful marketeer within the Gloucestershire business community because of him. Thank you Prestbury Marketing!!”
