Testimonials

Just some of my happy clients . . .

At Sky Publishing I have worked with Avril Smith for many, many years and can say that she at all times has exceeded expected performance levels throughout that period. She has always been willing to adopt new techniques and was never satisfied to rest on her laurels when a target was achieved.

She has always shown a professional and positive attitude to her work, colleagues and to our clients.

Pat Codyre
Managing Director

Avril is a true Sales and Marketing professional and has a very unique blend of skills from the very latest ideas in social media marketing to real “old fashioned” customer care and service.
We are very happy to have access to Avril’s skills which she successfully applies to several of our events. She has so much valuable experience of business to business relationships that in achieving her sales and marketing targets she makes long term customers of her clients.
Avril is also outstanding at prospecting for new business and has a huge wealth of knowledge in developing new markets and clients.
She is also a very good cook, dresses in all the latest fashion and if you look like George Clooney you can call her anytime.
