What they say...
Writer & Broadcaster
"Rupert is one of the best rail industry PRs in the business. I have worked with him for 25 years and he has been very helpful on numerous occasions. He understands how to build up trust with media people and to develop relationships which are fruitful for both sides. He is extremely knowledgeable and is always able to provide useful background."
CEO, Rail Forum
“Rupert is one of the most well-connected people in the rail industry; he knows everyone that matters! Equally importantly he can make those critical connections that are so important in the world of public affairs and politics”.
Director of City Development & Growth, Derby City Council
“Rupert proved himself to be invaluable in our task of making the case for Derby in relation to the national competition to secure the HQ of Great British Railways. He offered a unique combination of in-depth rail sector knowledge, an enviable little black book of senior rail industry connections and the ability and personality to be a highly effective (and persuasive) ambassador for the city. And I have to add that to round it all off, he is absolutely great fun to work with too! Just the sort of individual you want on the team.”
Programme Director Passenger & Freight Services, GBRTT
“Rupert supported a series of regional roundtable events we held with business leaders in the rail supply chain through spring 2023. He independently chaired these events and facilitated lively debates that met all our hoped for outcomes.”
