What PEOPLE say about us

Tony achieved a great deal in his time with Newsquest. His leadership was instrumental in amongst other things, driving the audience and digital revenue success of the Brighton Argus, which won last year’s Excellence Award for best news brand and Digital Centre of the Year which now generates almost 50% of its ad revenue from digital. He has also led the transformation our South London portfolio. He brings teams with him and is a strong commercial and entrepreneurial business leader.

Henry Faure Walker, Chief Executive at Newsquest

I worked with Tony for a number of years. Tony is one of the most innovative and entrepreneurial people that I have worked with, a fount of new business ideas and with the drive and skill-sets to actually make them happen. He is good with people, creating and managing effective teams, and has genuinely added to every business that I have seen him working in. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending him.

Lawrie Procter, Managing Director at Mediaforce

I had the pleasure of experiencing Andy’s professionalism and experience at first hand over many years of working closely with him. A highly skilled communicator with an infectious ‘can-do’ attitude, he was instrumental in working with me on many top level projects and always delivered top class results. When Andy and Tony got together in South London and Sussex there was no better team – their abilities and enthusiasm worked incredibly well together and I would have no hesitation recommending anyone to work with them. It doesn’t matter what your business needs, this team has the talent and experience to work with you and deliver results.

Anne Newton, CEO at Richmond Borough Chamber of Commerce

I had the immense pleasure of working with Tony for almost ten years. This was a period of unprecedented change for the publishing industry, the most significant being the growth of the internet. Tony’s incredible ability to bring together, motivate and manage teams to achieve the company’s objectives is second to none. During his time at Johnston Press Tony radically restructured the sales team, converting them from a hand-to-mouth, pile-it-high and sell-it-cheap sales approach to a structured series-sold solutions pitch. These changes dramatically increased pre-booked revenues and allowed us to manage the business in a much more structured way. Tony changed the publishing portfolio to suit the customers’ requirements and introduced advertisers to a myriad of new digital products. Never afraid of change, Tony is nevertheless grounded enough to know when basic, proven methods can achieve the best results.

Karl Dimmock, Director at Concept Building Solutions – Horsham & Managing Director Media Services Sussex Ltd

TCB have been working with us for 6 months and have taken a hands on role in driving our online retail business forward. Their initial business, market and pricing review threw up some really interesting information that has helped us to shape a strategy to develop the business. I have been impressed at how quickly they have understood our business sector. This work included the introduction of new service providers and negotiating contracts with them on our behalf. Tony has led the implementation of the agreed strategy and has added an energy and direction to the business and websites; quickly becoming a highly valued part of our team. Through constant analysis and excellent communication he has helped to transform the way that we market ourselves - reducing costs whilst introducing innovative ideas for social media marketing; including some excellent promotional videos that are delivering outstanding conversion levels and ROI. Andy has created some fantastic onsite content which has drawn in a new audience and increased time spent on site. I would highly recommend The Consultancy Bureau and look forward to continuing our relationship with them.
