We have used Callidus PR, and Viv Hardy in particular, on and off since our inception in 2008.

Callidus has provided us with strategic advice and hands on support in a very cost effective fashion.

We have found them to be proactive and results orientated and a real business partner.

We have received a significant amount of press over the years which is mainly due to the work they have put in.

Thanks to Callidus and Viv and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any company looking for PR support.
