The CCD team are a journo's dream. Really lovely, easy to approach, know their products inside out and always on hand with experts, quotes or tips even when the deadlines are super tight. A joy to work with every time.
Sophie Colgate, Woman Diet Special
I’ve been a journalist for 25 years and a health writer for the last 15 years. In that time I have worked with many PR agencies, but if I was asked to recommend one in particular for health, it would always be CCD. All the girls are quick to respond to any enquiries, which is what we demanding journalists always want! They’re extremely helpful, have a wealth of knowledge, and boundless enthusiasm for any account they represent. They are always a great pleasure to work with, and I am aware when they respond in rapid timing to my requests that they will have had to put something else to one side to do that – and I greatly appreciate that when I am under pressure to meet my own deadlines.
Karen Evennett, freelance contributor, Woman, Best
I have a long and fruitful relationship with CCD. The team always approach me about products with an angle that's well thought out and so suits Red, and they respond to any request for further information promptly and creatively.
Brigid Moss, Health Director, Red
It is a breath of fresh air to meet PR's who actually know the magazine and give me relevant ideas!
Jane Drucker, Editor, Healthy magazine
The beauty team at CCD PR frequently update us with the latest beauty products, expert tips, research, celebrity quotes and feature ideas. It's a brilliant service that we'd be lost without!
Emma Van Hinsbergh, Editor, Natural Health Magazine
As the editor of Health Food Business magazine, Organic & Natural Business and Fine Foodies, I am always very appreciative of any agency that can deliver interesting and fresh ideas for my editorial content. I have found CCD to be very efficient and always swift to get back with expert comments needed for my features. The team have an excellent understanding of the specific information our trade titles need, and what is really relevant to our readers. Understanding the sector is a real bonus and I like dealing with an agency that understands our unique business sector.
Rachel Symonds, Editor, Health Food Business, Organic and Natural Business and Fine Foodies
