He approached us to build his reputation as a thought-leader in the arts and business sector and raise the profile of a new artistic school of thought he had co-founded. In addition he wanted us to boost awareness and increase the revenues of his new creative space in London.
As he was relatively new to the London art scene, we helped him build relationships with leading London gallery directors, influential artists, art buyers and industry journalists through a schedule of private one-to-one lunches. These contacts were then able to follow his thoughts and ideas through a newly launched personal blog. We also accompanied him abroad to record video blogs, giving journalists and others a snapshot of his business and artistic life. With this portfolio established, we used our network to pitch him into global conferences, and posted these appearances to his blog to add further credibility.
We have significantly increased the depth of his professional artistic network, setting up meetings with a number of people on Art Review's 'Power 100' list. He has built a large, loyal readership on his personal blog and has more than 3,000 followers on Twitter. He has been invited to speak at a number of leading global conferences. At the launch of his creative space, we secured the attendance of a number of high-profile media outlets including ITV, The Telegraph and the BBC.
"Working with Paul is an absolute pleasure. He immediately put me at ease with his calm and friendly manner. What do I value the most? A private ear to share my personal and business concerns, and his positive attitude and approach to solving these concerns quickly. I would now find it hard to do business without him and his team. His strategic introductions have helped me enormously and continue to bear fruit many months down the line."
