What our clients say...

Andy Street

West Midlands Mayor


Gary is a highly-skilled communications professional who provides an excellent service. He is adept at producing high quality material, securing its placement and navigating the whole process efficiently and effectively. He’s a self-starter who initiates ideas, rather than sitting back. Whether for local, regional or national material Gary offers the expertise and professionalism that’s needed every time.

Richard Kerry

Legal Director, Bell Lax Solicitors


Gary has helped Bell Lax raise its profile as a provider of high quality legal advice not only in Sutton Coldfield, but throughout the Midlands and nationally. His pro-active approach to PR has helped us find new clients and ensure our initiatives reach the widest possible audience through articles in the traditional press and on social media. He has produced high quality material for us, with a swift and efficient turn around. His friendly and professional approach, combined with an impressive list of contacts has opened many doors for us. Appointing Gary Phelps Communications to handle our PR was one of the best decisions we made last year.

Tracy Campbell

Executive Headteacher, Plantsbrook Learning Trust


Gary has been working with us here at Plantsbrook for several months now. He has been very proactive in ensuring that we get ‘good news’ stories in the local press. We discuss the kind of items that we would like to publicise and then Gary does the rest. His contacts with local media are invaluable and he has enabled me to focus on other things, safe in the knowledge that I have an expert who is doing a great job on our behalf.

Nigel Waldron

Managing Director, Power Minerals


Power Minerals has used Gary's services from the moment he started his consultancy. Not only has he helped establish our business in areas we were not familiar with, he also played a big part in the company winning the coveted 2018 Birmingham Post Excellence in Industry Award. He is now one of the fixtures and fittings in our business and we have all benefited from his PR expertise.  

Paul 'Brina' Brindley

Director, Xtra Humongous


As a creative event curator and promoter, to work with someone who instantly understood the need for an engaging PR campaign that would resonate with our target audience was very refreshing. Gary made the whole process easy, translating my needs for composition and distribution to his far-reaching and welcoming network of press and media. There is no doubt that Gary will be the first person I contact when composing a marketing campaign that relies upon exposure, reach and results!  

Katie Hale

Business Development & Marketing Specialist


It has been a pleasure working with Gary over the last 12 months, as he brings so much to the table in terms of his media knowledge. He’s been so used to dealing with a range of businesses, he can spot a newsworthy PR story a mile away. He’s helped many of my clients realise their potential, gaining regional media coverage as he brings a journalistic perspective to PR which puts the focus on unearthing the real stories!
