We decided to use AHPR for a strategic campaign lasting 5 months. The initial meetings helped to put together a proposed schedule and this was then followed up by a review meeting every month. AHPR achieved publicity for us in a number of publications both in local media and industry press. Thank you for your efforts.

AHPR have worked with us since the beginning of 2009 and we have found them to be very effective with extensive contacts across all media, print, radio and television.
They are doing a great job for us, have made a big difference to the awareness of our business and we are very happy.
We furst employed the services of Ambrose Harcourt PR a few months ago. We have been very impressed with the friendly way that he has involved himself with each of our business developments and new contracts. He has gone out of his way to use his own contacts to push our business and has I know sometimes worked late into the night. We appreciate him now as being an important member of our team
Nick Beck, Director, Monk Marketing
I introduced myself and my company to you just a little over one month ago at a Business Breakfast organised by Juice at My Hotel. I listened to your story that morning and I knew instantly that I could work with you, but more than that I thought you would understand my story and want to help reward the loyalty my staff had already shown to me in working for nothing for two months without any pay.
One month later you have introduced me to a great new Web designer and I have customers calling me to offer their support after reading this same story in the Argus business page. Your expertise and professionalism are worth more than I can pay you at the moment but I know with your help we will both succeed as what you do represents real value for money.
All of us at Keyhole Security consider you as one of our team and we are looking forward to a very long business relationship with you. So "thank you" and I look forward the future which you have helped to make brighter for so many of us.
Jason McCreanney, CEO, Keyhole Security
AHPR recently organised some PR for my company where we received fantastic exposure, which subsequently led to an uplift in enquiries and sales leads.
From start to finish, AHPR took complete control, ensuring that as the client I could relax, enjoy the day, and wait for the subsequent uplift in enquiries. Thank you AHPR - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services to other businesses looking to effectively promote their brand/company.

To Ambrose Harcourt: "We could not have chosen anyone better to have provided the entertainment for our wedding reception. Not only did you keep the music flowing and give us the most wonderful evening we could have asked for but you also socialised with all our guests and everyone told us afterwards how without you there the evening would not have been the same so thank you very very much to you and your team. It was a pleasure to have you host our evening, the wonderful man who we have all listened to on the radio from teenagers hoping one day to find love and have you play a song for us. Thank you so much."

"Just a little note to say a BIG thank you or organising the steel pan lady for our garden party - my husband's 40th, last Saturday, It was really chilled, and everyone said how different it was and enjoyed it.
I will definitely contact you again - for our Christmas party - or maybe when we get round to having our company's 'launch' party in a couple of months time. "
Our wedding was absolutely magical and we had a thoroughly wonderful day!! Magdalene was absolutely brilliant - all of our guests were amazed at her voice and several guests asked us where we got her from - so hopefully she may get some bookings in the future. She really was fantastic and made our wedding ceremony very romantic and we certainly would not hesitate in recommending her.
Regards and best wishes
Nicole and Mark Austin
I would just like to say that it would be impossible for me to thank you all enough for your time and help. The support and enthusiasm has been invaluable. A particular mention for Ambrose and Bob. What a fantastic disco. All requests seemed to be played instantly and I have never had so much fun. We enjoyed every minute of it and even when I thought I couldn't take another step I was dragged back on to the dance floor for another run of our "favourite" songs!! What a wonderful, wonderful day.
Mrs Shelley Toovey
