“AMBITIOUS has offered us excellent support with starting out in exploring the possibilities of PR. They drive things forward and keep us on track, offering their expertise about what will work for the media and writing releases for us – often taking quite complex subjects and condensing into key messages. We’ve received some great coverage and are working well together.”
