Receptionist


Clo Tarleton

Who else can say they’ve worked in PR for nearly four decades and lived through a series of seismic changes from letter to fax to email to the social and digital revolution? Whether you’re in the market for PR support or not, it's worth popping by just for the ‘Clo’ experience. She’s seen it all.

Senior Account Director


Fran Langdon-Devlin

What ‘Fran the Fixer’ doesn’t know about fashion, lifestyle, food, drink, out of home and automotive PR – in fact, anything you like – isn’t worth knowing. A veritable oracle.
