It shouldn't be like that and with RedPR, it isn't.
With key print, photographic, design and video production partnerships, we can deliver whatever you need - professionally, quickly and affordably.
Senior consultant and director, Ali Jones, has almost 30 years experience in media and strategic communication, both as a journalist, producer (TV, radio, video), presenter (radio and TV), writer (print, web, video, TV) as well as within corporate PR.
Give us a call for a relaxed, no obligation chat.
