“You were a breath of fresh air… you’d got lots of very different ideas. Developing the vision, mission and values right at the beginning was key because it gave us some focus. You’ve definitely put energy back into our account. You’ve made us more excited about PR.”

“If I had to sum up the last 12 months working with Kinetic Communications on the Birmingham Forward account, I would say: energetic, proactive, fun and different.”
Bev Weston, chair of the MMEC committee, Birmingham Forward
