The service is led by Paul personally, who remains the key client contact 24/7 for support, advice and guidance; offering his contacts, experience, networks, enthusiasm and total commitment. In many PR set-ups you 'buy into' the MD at the start, but when hired, you actually get someone else looking after you. Not with us.
