Testimonials

Chairman, Tutu Foundation UK and Owner of Clive Conway Productions. Producer

“Mark, whose company More Fire PR Ltd successfully carried out PR/media coverage for our joint ‘Peace through Mediation Summit’ with Regent’s University London, was a major player in the huge success of the day. He did all the necessary groundwork before embarking on his campaign. This involved finding out in advance what each speaker and panellist intended to cover and then finding an interesting and controversial angle to attract the attention of press and social media. This worked significantly well gaining us coverage in the Daily Mail, New York Times and a dozen other respected newspapers around the world as far away as India. Mark’s presence on the day sealed the success of his work. I have already recommended his company to others.”


Mediation Course Leader, Regent's University London at its School of Psychotherapy and Psychology (RSPP)

“Thank you Mark! You and More Fire PR Ltd provided an amazing service in promoting the Tutu international Peace Summit at Regents University London, as well as achieving great success in publicising my new book. From the beginning, it was impressive how you guided us through the various options we had for securing publicity, and then followed through by securing the most amazing coverage world wide.”


Product Director, Welcome Systems Ltd

“Mark has been a fantastic addition to the marketing and PR arm of our business. He has engrossed himself in our world and, in next to no time at all, become ‘one of us’. Mark’s quick understanding of our sector and product lines has enabled him to deliver invaluable exposure for Welcome Systems in both industry and public media. Within a month of working with More Fire PR Mark had secured a spot for me live on BBC radio - impressive stuff. I’d have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mark and More Fire PR to any business wanting to shout louder than they are able to on their own.”


, MSc Entrepreneurial Consultancy & Practice student at the University of Buckingham

“Mark’s insight into PR, the media and running his business – More Fire PR Ltd – proved incredibly useful during his time teaching our MSc in Entrepreneurial Consultancy & Practice at the University of Buckingham. Amongst other things, we learnt about crisis management and the need for businesses to address PR issues appropriately. This learning inspired me to want to pursue a career in crisis management consultancy. From a student perspective it quickly became apparent why Mark had been elected to come in and give this relevant talk as part of our module. His teaching further developed my understanding of the challenges that businesses face when dealing with PR, the media and corporate issues.”


Director of Admissions, Salford Busness School at University of Salford

“Mark was appointed to carry out an important project for Salford Business School. The project required a fast turnaround, high quality output and a high degree of talented input to meet our requirements. I have to state that all our requirements where met, project delivered on time and he showed he was reliable, trustworthy, a great team player. Mark’s work is very visible to the world and I have absolute confidence in its ability to meet our needs. His company produces innovative, constructive content and demonstrates exceptional and very welcome professionalism. Very highly recommended.”

Associate Director - Marketing & Student Recruitment, The University of Salford

​“I worked with Mark for many years at The University of Northampton where he provided a highly valued and totally professional service as our Press and PR Manager. Since that time we have both gone our own ways and created our own companies. Last year, as Interim Director of Marketing and Student Recruitment at the University of Salford, I employed Mark to use his fantastic writing skills for the development of the webpages and course information within two of our academic Schools. The feedback I had from the Heads of School and Directors of Admission was all extremely positive, so much so that other of the academic Schools within that institution are now fighting over his services.”
