Client feedback

“We were in trouble in the UK. Our local team had failed to secure a distribution or sales base in spite of the investment we had put into the market. Bob Shire reorganised our UK operation, got a foothold in 3 new major customers and used PR to get our brand awareness and all this with a very acceptable budget.”

“We had the support of a major chain and needed quickly to provide consumer and trade marketing support. Bob quickly helped us with a strategy and then turned on a sixpence to get it implemented.”
(UK OTC healthcare start-up)

“We want to get into the UK market following success elsewhere in Europe, but we don’t want to have a local operation. We asked Bob to help us get started. He proposed which clients to go for first, helped us make the initial approaches and was ready with logistical arrangements when orders flowed. And to get started we needed only one face-to-face meeting in London.”

“We wanted to move into Europe, initially in the UK, following success for our business in North America. Bob Shire has helped us define the opportunity and get started, introducing us to some strong potential partners.”
