The decision we took at NEO Financial Solutions to work with Plunkett PR ranks as one of the best made in our company’s interest. Their ability to produce the maximum level of exposure is second to none, and I’d attribute that to their extensive range of contacts across every aspect of the media. In the past year my profile as a financial expert has been immeasurably raised through various pieces across a broad spectrum of newspapers and magazines, along with appearances on national radio and television. Plunkett PR has helped establish me as a strong and competent voice on the issue of debt restructuring. It’s difficult to describe the peace of mind that comes from knowing Plunkett PR is working for us. Their team’s professional attitude and dedication to clients gives us every assurance that our public image is in the safest of hands.”
Paul Carroll , NEO Financial Solutions
“Sharon Plunkett, managing director of Plunkett PR, has handled the Malta account since the beginning of 1994, both as managing director of her own company and, prior to that, as employee of McConnells. Sharon and her team continue to drive our presence in the media and we have been particularly pleased with the TV coverage received over the past few years. Their work has benefited us, the Malta Tourism Authority, as the client and the Maltese Islands, considerably through the increased exposure the Islands have received through Sharon Plunkett’s PR initiatives. The agency continues to ensure that the plan of activities is executed to our satisfaction and with the maximum effectiveness.”
