About us

James Cuthbertson

I believe that my strength is connecting people, people who share our passion for the leisure and hospitality trade in the UK. These meetings of minds can take the form of client and journalist, client and trade contact, but more often than not, client and client. The team and I are dedicated to creating then delivering your message in an accurate, timely and inspiring way, across a wide range of media channels.

We’re a firm that shares a certain ethos and work ethic with its client base, so why not all work together…it’s an instinctive family thing.
