“Moving, thought provoking, informative. An excellent tool to bring awareness to the issues surrounding domestic violence!”
Tony Porter, A Call To Men USA
“From our first call through to the end of the event Claire was incredibly easy to work with. Her guidance made planning and promoting the online event very straightforward. ‘Life Sentence’ was a great choice for Accent and the discussion after the screening created a safe space where people could share their own experiences.
We would highly recommend the digital packages to any organisation looking to raise employee awareness around this emotive topic. Claire’s expertise and professionalism exceeded all our expectations, and we are hoping to host another event in the future.”
