Rosie Bates, General Manager Visit Devon, said, “Devon needed to ensure that we chose an agency that would be able to communicate the Devon charisma across the complete range of media channels. In a competitive pitch, A Head for PR came up with some really creative ideas and we are confident that their originality and enthusiasm, combined with their experience and creativity, will deliver what we want for Visit Devon.”
