Wild PR has helped me personally coordinate and focus our international marketing plan to bring a much more structured approach.
The team work directly with myself and my employees and offer an outstanding extension to our business that adds real value.
I have found the transition of using an outside agency seamless, they have got to grips with our business very quickly and I have been able to let them run with most things independently in a very short space of time.
