"Tara Silvester loyally served De Dietrich Kitchen Appliances Ltd for 14 years and in my role as sales and marketing director, I had the benefit of her support for the last eight of them. During that time she showed me the true value of PR as a key part of the marketing mix.

Her friendly, yet professional approach consistently demonstrated real knowledge and passion about the business she represented and she relentlessly committed herself to exceeding expectations.

"Having worked with Left Right & Centre PR before when we employed the agency to successfully launch the Austrian Intuo kitchens brand in the UK, I had no hesitation in choosing the same PR Agency again to execute the trade and consumer promotion of the Searle & Taylor business and brand in press. I am very pleased to be to be working with Tara Silvester, as she is knowledgeable, organised and has excellent writing skills. She also has a fantastic list of press contacts, who all love her friendly, yet highly efficient approach."

CLIENT

De Dietrich Kitchen Appliances (2000 - 2007)

 

"Left Right & Centre was my PR for over seven years and I never had any reason to complain. Tara Silvester, who runs the business is a true professional who always tried hard to obtain major exposure for all the brands I represented - always delivering great results. 

 

"Tara also presented professional marketing skills that went well and truly beyond her job description. She put in a huge amount of effort into understanding the culture of my business and that of its competitors and this work resulted in great news stories and our products being regularly featured in trade and consumer press. 

 

"PR was never a major part of our marketing strategy, but with Tara's input, it became the key focus of it. Not only was her work the best I have experienced in PR terms - and I have worked with many bigger PR agencies - but also as a person she was a pleasure to work with and would be an asset for any company lucky enough to employ her services."

Trade - Monthly electrical trade press magazine and website

 

"As a journalist and publisher in the electrical trade press, I and my colleagues have worked with Left Right & Centre PR for a number of years. We have increasing cause to be grateful for our continuing professional relationship with Left Right & Centre, since the agency maintains standards of professionalism and commitment which are becoming rarer among PR practitioners in this sector. 

 

"In particular, Left Right & Centre PR can be relied upon for an exceptionally detailed and up-to-date knowledge of its client's products, and an ability to identify the specific relevance of these products in the context of trade communications and the wider commercial environment. Consequently, press releases are clear, cogent and above all, always have a point that journalists can see the value of. The agency is always willing to go the extra mile to discuss specific needs, projects and ideas with individual journalists and will work to craft stories that our trade audience will find relevant and useful. 

 

"If all agencies had the enthusiasm, accessibility and professionalism available from Left Right & Centre PR, trade communications would benefit enormously, and the combined needs of clients, journalists and readers would be better served."

Having worked with Tara for several years, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. Efficient, organised and thoroughly pleasant, I know I can always count on her for the information I'm looking for - promptly delivered in a format with plenty of detail that's easy to access. Not only is she hugely experienced, she always knows her products inside out, so can answer queries quickly and with certainty. Nothing is ever too much trouble and no request too difficult. All PR should be like this.”
