Meet the team


"Forward And Thinking were a real asset for P1 Powerboats, they covered so many aspects for us from organising some sponsorship, to publicity in the city centre, on radio, TV and much, much more. They really couldn't do enough for us over the months of preparation and the event itself. 

Their digital advan is a great asset and was used extensively in the city to grow interest and down at the quay on race days. We couldn't have asked for more than they achieved.

I have no hesitation in recommending Forward And Thinking to anyone. They have proven to be one of the most proactive and friendly companies we have worked with and we hope to retain their services for many years as the Superstock continues to grow apace. “
