It’s always a pleasure working with MWM and their clients – they totally understand what we need and can often really help us out with their flexibility. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them to secure a campaign spokesperson – service with an (emailed) smile!

I have worked with Sam on a number of projects for a few clients and I’ve really valued her straight forward approach and honest counsel.
Getting the right talent for a brand is increasingly crucial and unlike other agents I’ve worked with, Sam and her team recognise the importance of seeking ‘win win’ solutions for all parties as well as developing a long-term relationships that’s based on shared values and working together to plan and implement campaigns. Gone are the days of one off, upfront fee-based celebrity endorsements and Sam was at the forefront of seeing the need to change.
SANJAY MISTRY - MANAGING DIRECTOR -PUBLIC RELATIONS
