“Tony and I have known each other for many years and worked together on a number of occasions.

His insight, intellectual capacity and awareness of recruitment trends and candidate attraction strategies have been key factors in delivering several successful projects. He is undoubtedly one of the most knowledgeable and effective thought leaders in digital and online recruitment strategies.

Tony is always a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending him.”

“Tony is an expert. I trust his advice and guidance. He’s extremely personable and great at making the complicated simple. He offers a cost effective service, which delivers results. His menu driven approach is tailored to your needs and is, in my opinion, what many businesses are looking for. Tony has a fantastic breadth and depth of expertise. He stays on top of new developments so that you stay ahead of the competition.”

 “Our team have worked with Tony on a number of projects, but most recently we asked Tony to do an update with the team on optimising the potential of LinkedIn for the agency and its team. We had a great, short, lunch time session where everyone left inspired to do a bit more and to work better as a team within the LinkedIn environment. Tony shared valuable insight and practical tips, and we are hoping to see Tony on a regular basis to keep up the momentum. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Tony, he is down to earth, personable and his enthusiasm is infectious. Oh, and he brings sweets – what’s not to love?!”

 “Tony’s time and help was much appreciated and very valuable. He shone a light on what I thought was the shadowy art of social media in recruitment. I’ve gone from nought to 60 in 30 seconds since he showed us how powerful social media is.”

Kay Hopwood
HR Manager

“Tony challenges your thinking, helps you deliver budgets and takes responsibility for driving your business theory – he is big picture thinker”

Clare Bradley
Trinity Mirror

 “I first met Tony when he ran Recruitment for Feather’s Brooksbank, then gave them my contract. I then worked with Tony as a supplier for 5 years. In the last 2 years I have used Tony as a vital sounding board, and consultant in setting up my new online venture.

Tony’s input has always been honest, well-informed, well constructed and to the point. He combines a unique in-depth knowledge of the recruitment and online sectors with a good business brain – not to mention, he’s immensely personable and know absolutely everybody!

If you need someone to tell you like it is, I would recommend Tony without hesitation.”

Peter Gillespie
Advertising Sales & Marketing Director
Herald & Times Group

 “Tony is a truly independent media consultant, who is organised, dedicated and hard-working. With him there are no hidden agendas nor difficult to understand rationale. He consistently challenges what is widely accepted as the norm, and by looking at a problem in an innovative way, and has achieved significant results with stakeholders seeing the real benefit of having Tony aboard.

I have worked with Tony on a couple of projects now and his self motivation and drive to see the project through is refreshing, elements of which I have chosen to adopt in my own work. Our environment required someone we could trust implicitly and he has adapted well to the way in which the public sector works, and the value we derive from his services vastly outweigh his very reasonable daily rate. I have no hesitation at all in recommending Tony.”

Douglas Shirlaw
Chief Digital Officer

“We have worked with Tony on a number of occasions now, he has provided myself, and my colleagues valuable training sessions, and we are talking about how we work together in the future. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Tony, he has a down to earth, and very personable style, his training delivery is targeted to you, and is most of all fun and memorable.”
