Elaine Wise001a


PR, Media Relations & Business Development
Mitchells Auction Company

“Mitchells Auction Company has engaged Elaine Wise as a consultant over the past 18 months. During this time her PR expertise has resulted in substantial positive editorial coverage for the company in both local and national media which has enhanced the company’s profile and reputation, reinforcing our client and customer loyalty and helping us to attract new ones.

She has also been responsible for the management of two major projects; The design, construction and launch of Veeva coffee shop and the upgrading of our Company branding and website.

I can be cynical when it comes to consultants and have met many who ‘have borrowed my watch to tell me the time’. Elaine is not one of them!
Elaine is different in three ways. Firstly she takes ownership, despite the fact that the ‘buck will not rest with her’. Secondly she pays attention to detail which many consultants would leave to others. And thirdly, Elaine expresses her opinion and is prepared to disagree with the Principal if she considers the project would be harmed.

I have found Elaine’s work to be of a high standard and have no hesitation in recommending her for similar projects.”
