“Having worked with Stephen for over four years, there is no PR officer more committed to the promotion or protection of his employers reputation.
“His personal nature and approach made it easy for me to discuss Partners’ rights and their delivery that often relied on appearances from the playing or backroom staff, which he was always able to facilitate, supporting me with drafting press releases or suggesting the most appropriate title to place the story with and I still seek his counsel on my current projects.
