Discussing their collaboration, Rob commented:

“I was made aware of Holly’s services as I was looking for an experienced PR professional with knowledge of my sector. Not only is Holly a fellow TAB member, andhighly recommended, but Honest also has experience of working with top media in the home sector so I was confident Holly and her team could help.”
