Testimonials

“I had the pleasure to work with Adrian in a high pressured and challenging communications environment. Adrian was creative, hard working, highly dependable and a source of calm in a crisis. He employs tact and decorum when required, but can also cheer up any team or individual with kindness, humour and common sense when faced with challenges and difficulties. He can deliver outstanding work to tight deadlines, but never compromises on quality or accuracy. He is a communications professional I could not recommend highly enough and an individual whom any communications office would be all the richer for employing.”
Karen McIntosh, former University of Stirling Communications Officer, now PR and Marketing Manager at Gleaneagles Hotel.

“I’ve worked with Adrian since 2008 as a Trustee of the very active local heritage charity, the Friends of Kinneil. Adrian is an exceptionally dedicated power of energy in the publicity and PR work he does for the charity. He is expert in all the latest aspects of media relations, social media, web and graphic design – as well as being a good photographer. He goes to an incredible amount of work and detail to produce the most professional materials. Adrian can take significant credit for many of the achievements of the charity since it was founded 10 years ago, and the high profile and regard it has gained; and I’d have no hesitation in recommending him to others.”
Ian Shearer, Chair of The Friends of Kinneil

“Adrian is an effective PR operator, which is not surprising since he had already proved himself running a local newspaper before launching The PR Store (his consultancy). He also ran a campaign which culminated in being successfully elected as a local councillor. With a good eye for the bigger picture and an impressive ability to communicate, he also has a good set of online and IT skills. Highly recommended.”
