Client comment

“Penny has an excellent understanding of our organisation, working effectively with a number or people across the Group. She also gained good knowledge of the sector in which we operate, including the political environment.”

Corporate / stakeholder campaign for a property developer

“We have worked with Penny Norton on several public consultation campaigns which make extensive use of social media. We wanted to be completely transparent and use a forum where people could see what was being said to build trust between ourselves and the community. We also felt that young people would take to social media and participate in the preparation of our proposals, which proved to be the case. We were very impressed at how quickly feedback from the community could be evaluated and how effective Facebook was in responding to a wider audience.”
