“We hired Briscoe French to assist us with our rebrand launch having not had a PR agency before. From the very start they provided a strategy that has delivered superb results – considerably beyond what we had been expecting. Their friendly and approachable expertise opened our eyes to what could be achieved with a clear strategy that was well executed. We have been so pleased with the results we have continued to work with Briscoe French on an on-going basis and that is continuing to deliver superb results.
