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.”

Tim Larden – Managing Director, Ladbrook Insurance

“The best marketing person in Gloucestershire.”

Ian Mean –  Former Editor, Gloucester Citizen and Gloucestershire Media

We at HRML are a HR & Employment Law specialist company who are asked to undertake some major changes to businesses and other organisations such as charities and schools etc. This can be highly sensitive work and we use Prestbury Marketing to skilfully communicate the work we do and the reasons to the existing members of staff as an essential part of the acceptance process. We now build this approach into all such work as Darren has become an essential part to the ‘Change’ process we offer clients. 

Ian Heather –  Heather Resource Management Limited 

If you’re looking for a company in Gloucestershire to look after your PR and Marketing needs, I’d recommend Prestbury Marketing. Great ideas and great support.

Kevan Blackadder –  Cheltenham Business Improvement District

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!

Claire Thayers –  Claire Thayers and Associates

“Prestbury Marketing are results orientated, brilliant marketers who add value across the business. 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.”

Gary Jones –  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

Darren and the team are thorough, professional, well connected and do a great job for our charity. If I ever need sound advice, Darren is the go to person – all part of the fantastic service offered.

Cordell Ray –  Chief Executive, CCP

“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

I can fully recommend Darren and his team. Your marketing efforts fall into a safe pair of hands, they get to know you and your business and their deep knowledge of Marketing means they are proactive, relevant and effective. They’re committed to doing what’s best for you and you feel they are genuinely on your side. A great bunch of people to work with too.

Jerry Angrave –  Empathyce

“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 Signature 

We have worked with Darren and the team at Prestbury for the last 4 years. They have provided us with great advice over that time, most recently they have worked with us on how to make the most from our social media. Darren has also delivered fantastic workshops to C2S members full of great content which have received fantastic feedback from attendees. We would highly recommend the team at Prestbury Marketing. 

Suzanne Hall-Gibbins – Circle 2 Success

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!!”
