Brian Crisp - National Travel Editor News Corp:
As National Travel Editor with News Corp I worked with John over a number of years. I found him to be extremely good at his job. He values the art of relationship building and I was impressed with his ability to understand my products – as well as those that he represented. He is results driven and makes it possible for those working with him to achieve any pre-set goals. I would say that he is one of the most effective, and reliable, PR people I have worked with.
Brad Foster – Managing Editor micenet AUSTRALIA:
In my more than 10 years as the Managing Editor of micenet AUSTRALIA magazine – a publication that focuses on the business event sector – I can honestly say that John’s management of PR at Gold Coast Tourism was the best of any tourism or convention bureau in Australia or indeed internationally. Further clarification on a story, a request for images to accompany a story, an interview request with the CEO, and any other additional requests, were never a problem and always achieved with the utmost professionalism and promptness. John’s coordination of the Gold Coast Tourism Corporation-sponsored luncheon at the AIME exhibition in Melbourne each February was legendary and was a must-attend event for journalists working in the business event sector in Australia and overseas.
Martin Winter – CEO Gold Coast Tourism:
John is a highly-regarded and genuinely reliable communications professional. He demonstrated over many years with Gold Coast Tourism an ability to build meaningful media relationships and deliver communications outcomes which positively impacted our business.
Brett Murray – CEO BAM Media:
During John’s time at BAM Media, he became an integral part of a young dynamic team positioning itself as a major player in corporate, event, government and sports media and public relations. John’s ability to work original concepts, contribute to group activities and his attention to detail saw him consistently achieve results above expectations of his nominated clients. John’s overall work ethic, enthusiasm and knowledge of all facets of the media greatly contributed to his success. The relationships he developed in the media, government and corporate world have stood him in good stead as his career has gone from strength to strength.
