Challenging . . . responsive . . . proactive . . . combined with an ability to quickly and accurately grasp a relevant understanding of the subject matter. It really feels like a team effort - everything you look for in your support network.

When we decided to ask Grapevine to manage a PR campaign for SADAS we made the right decision. The campaign ran for six months and was very successful, improving awareness of the charity's work and raising our profile across Surrey. Positive feedback from our funders included the comment that we were 'everywhere at the moment'. Grapevine placed a range of stories with the press plus a number of radio interviews and was able to capitlise on new stories as they arose. Grapevine has an excellent range of contacts and ensured that press releases were followed up and turned in to the publicity we wanted.
Mike Blank, Executive Director, SADAS
Grapevine PR has been essential for a small growing company such as ours. They have increased the visibility of the products in the market and as a result our sales have grown significantly. Based on my experience, I'd have no hesitation in recommending the services of Grapevine PR to anyone looking to raise the profile of their company.

I have known and worked with Mel Betts for a number of years. If I had to sum her up I would describer her as professional, responsive and utterly reliable but perhaps most importantly she always produces the results.
Peppa Sheridan, Director, Peptalk Communications
As editor of IBE Magazine and www.ibeweb.com I have worked with Mel Betts for several years. She has always demonstrated the rare ability of delivering exactly what is required to very tight deadlines. Her press events - including a memorable one to Lisbon that included tickets to watch England beat Croatia during Euro 2004 - are always well organised and professionally executed. Mel always represents her clients professionally, and ensures that she maximises their exposure in all relevant media.
