"The PRCA’s Matchmaker service is a great service, which I found hugely helpful, especially as this was the first time I was involved in a PR audit. Everyone is assigned a personal contact to guide you through each step of the process. In my case, Richard Zetter was fantastic and provided professional, thorough advice throughout. All-in-all an excellent service and I would highly recommend it"
Natalie Lambracos, Senior Communications Executive, Harbottle & Lewis
"We used the Matchmaker service to find a PR agency who had just the right experience in our niche sectors to deal with a high profile project on a national scale. As well as having an impressive portfolio of contacts to draw from, Richard was able to communicate to them our needs and organise a range of bespoke detailed creds quickly. We ran two rounds of pitches and engaged one of his recommendations within three weeks. Were it not for Richard, it is unlikely we could have found the right solution ourselves anywhere near as quickly."
Katie Newell, Head of Content and PR, Eteach
