Meet the team


“We have been working with Alison and her team at Forward and Thinking for over two years now.

Alison and her team and pro-active and responsive in every aspect. Whenever a request is placed with them we always receive a response almost instantly, and should a last minute request or difficulty arise they are sorted efficiently and smoothly.

This has provided us with much more flexibility than we ever had.

Due to Alison's relationships with the media we have managed to get better deals, last minute bookings, and this has enabled us to do much more responsive advertising. In a changing world this has become ever more important.

Before we met Alison we dealt with each form of media individually. Since our partnership with Forward and Thinking we have saved a lot of money, not only in buying negotiations, but also in time.

I urge anyone who is unsure of using Forward and Thinking to speak to Alison.

The benefits we have experienced are invaluable. “
