What Others Say
Media, travel, property, luxury and lifestyle businesses turn to Andrew Forbes. Here is what some of them are saying…
Founder Arts Square – Full Service Brand Agency
Our experience working with Andrew has been nothing less than excellent. He is reliable, honest and punctual. He is not only very specialised in his domains of expertise (luxury – lifestyle), he can also work on a wide variety of other subject matters. He is always ready to offer great advice, to help guide the process and guarantee an impeccable result.
Founder SeriousGuide – Innovative Travel Guides
Andrew has a very good eye in finding original and interesting travel places, which are very useful for our travel guides. His proposals, reports & pieces are always very precise, accurate and delivered right on time. Plus, he’s a great person!
Director TOUT World of Luxury Magazine – the leading Bi-Lingual magazine for elite expatriates and Russians abroad
At TOUT Magazine, Andrew has made clear its creative talent, expressing his ideas and unique vision in his work as contributing editor. His professionalism has contributed to the improvement of the magazine, and his personal qualities have made him an invaluable colleague.
Founder TeamXtreme – Luxury adventure activities & holidays
Andrew really is what you can call a master of words and he has helped me to improve the copywriting in all of my marketing materials. He has also played a major role in my marketing strategy and has had some great and creative ideas that I have already been able to implement in a very short time frame only thanks to his help and initiative.
Brand & Marketing Communications Manager – Premier Inn – the UK’s biggest budget hotel chain
I worked with Andrew on a client website. Andrew writes compelling copy that ‘hits the nail on the head’. His creativity and ability to get to the heart of the message results in strong copy that stands out from the page.
Editor of SUR in English Newspaper – the newspaper for the international community in Southern Spain
Andrew has a flair for producing excellent copy, and writing it to the exacting deadlines of a newspaper. He is very reliable and professional, which is why I continue to commission work from him.
BI Worldwide – Communication and Incentive business, specialising in Incentive Travel
I first worked with Andrew years ago. My first impression was of his energy and boundless enthusiasm, an incredibly positive guy who really wanted to do the ‘right thing’ at all times, without compromise. Andy is an incredibly hard working and intelligent optimist. He doesn’t want to hear the ‘why nots’, he wants to hear the ‘what if’s…’. There is always an angle that can be considered – some clever new technique or idea that can be explored, some perspective that most people wouldn’t normally consider. And this is a key part of Andy’s work. His creative ability to magic gold from thin air, then make it sound so bloody obvious. And he is outstanding at getting other people to buy into it too – mostly because of his outstanding communication skills. Andy can develop the concept, create pragmatic ‘market differentiation’, and then wrap it up in beautiful copy he’s crafted himself. And he gets real marketing, and real creativity – stuff that matters. This is why he matters so much to the people and colleagues he’s worked with. And he’s a really nice guy too.
Associate Director, NSPR, UK PR agency
I had the pleasure of working with Andrew on several successful projects over the years. Each time, his enthusiasm and desire to deliver the best possible results shone through. Combined with Andrew’s professionalism and natural creative flair, it’s always a pleasure to work with him and to deliver results above and beyond.
Guillaume du Gardier
Trait d’Union, French PR agency
Andrew has been a terrific partner and guide to handle my first European PR campaigns at the time of the launch of our European PR Network. He was extremely professional, knew exactly the way to handle international relationships with various PR offices, while at the same time being able to handle global strategy and have it meet the local requirements. He is definitely someone I could rely on again in the future.

It was clear that my business needed a clear and well delivered online presence, with a particular slant towards using social media sites to publicise and promote my business. Andrew worked with me in a friendly and consistent manner which I can only describe as an absolute pleasure. He obviously knows his ‘onions’ in terms of marketing and through his writing skills, delivers his knowledge in a simple but effective manner. I cannot thank him enough for helping me turn my small, fledgling business into one that is now a well established ‘player’ in my sector.
