I want to thank you for your fantastic year with Circomedia; you brought so much energy, creative thinking, expertise and skill into the company at a time it was very much needed, and I feel we have made a step change in our marketing development because of this.Jan Winter, Circomedia
Fantastic piece in the Sunday Times and it’s still not stopping. People are going nuts over Brolga. Five marriage proposals and $22,000 already donated to his kangaroo cause! ABC radio called him the biggest Australian export since Kylie yesterday – and 60 Minutes Australia are trying to line him up for a slot on their show. I’m also fending off every TV company in the world sniffing around for a piece of the action. Can’t thank you enough for your wonderful work.Andrew Graham Brown, producer, KANGAROO DUNDEE
No! Does any other festival have to decide whether to do The ONE Show, BBC Breakfast, Good Morning, Alan Titchmarsh or Loose Women? Can’t keep up! And Google Alerts are still pouring in. Very well done!Chris Daniels, Director, Slapstick Film Festival

You’re the most efficient publicity person I know by a million miles. I usually have to nag and nag and get passed around all over the place to get decent info and lo, you hand me everything in a lovely neat email.Rachel Ashton, BBC Wildlife Magazine
