"I work with about a dozen PR companies in my assorted roles and without doubt The Q Collective always produces the goods, on time and well presented. Which is something you can’t say about every PR firm! The team is always fun and good to deal with and responds to requests promptly and efficiently, which, when you are working to deadlines, is pretty important."
Mike Pryce, business/property editor and chief features writer, Worcester News
"Mark and his team completely engrossed themselves in the Battle of Evesham festival. Without The Q Collective's involvement, it would have not been the success it was. They provided resource and advice, gave round the clock assistance and produced on-point comms which hit the right audiences in both content and to all target media."
Antonia Coles, Festival Co-ordinator, Battle of Evesham 2015
"Wychavon District Council appointed Mark and his team to provide PR support to Evesham Town Centre throughout the replacement works of Abbey Road Bridge. In short, the agency was highly effective in encouraging local residents to be proud of Evesham – even becoming advocates for their town and at the same time, sending clear messages that Evesham’s shops, bars, restaurants, hotels and other leisure attractions were very much open for business.
"The agency promoted Evesham’s unique festival offering and used these to differentiate the town from nearby and other regional destinations. The team maintained regular and effective communication and sustained good relations with local, regional and national media throughout. They informed and educated audiences as to the range and variety of retail and leisure outlets, services and facilities available in the town. Most importantly, the team monitored and helped to mitigate any negative publicity/comments that arose throughout the period of the contract.
"They did all this via traditional and digital media. The bridge works overran considerably creating a huge amount of critical comments, especially on social media. The agency was able to respond to this by creating continuing positive media coverage of events, business successes and promotional offers. Many businesses benefited from ‘free’ PR as a result and the resource was very much missed once the works were finally completed."
