Testimonials

“Name have demonstrated professional commitment and care in their work for Eventbrite. They were able to get under the skin of every release and became trusted advisors, securing coverage for us across specialist and national titles and placing Eventbrite spokespersons at key industry events.” 

Sebastian Boppert, Head of European Communications, Eventbrite

“Name PR did a great job with Dalston Music Festival PR last summer. Immediately after our first meeting, we felt that the whole team was truly dedicated to our project. They understood quickly our needs and made the most of the few weeks they had to promote the event. Sam, Emma and Katie were also a great support on the day to welcome the press and make sure they had everything they needed. Name PR cared about our success as if we were a long-time client, they were a real pleasure to work with and above all they had a huge impact on the festival media coverage.”

Pauline Le Divenach, Dalston Music Festival

“We worked closely with Name for five years, during which time the team helped transform the profile of Cooking Vinyl and Essential Music & Marketing. Sam and co always deliver a first-class service, going above and beyond to forge strong relationships across our companies and build a deep understanding of our needs.

“Their reach is truly impressive, not only putting Cooking Vinyl on the map in terms of the UK music trade media, but also positioning Martin within the global business press. Their understanding of the global music business news agenda is second to none and they have also demonstrated flexibility in being able to deliver consumer press coverage, especially on the UB40 campaign. We would recommend them to anyone and happily use them again.”
Martin Goldschmidt, Managing Director Cooking Vinyl & Mike Chadwick, Managing Director Essential Music & Marketing

“We’ve had the great pleasure of working with Sam Shemtob and his team at NAME PR over the past 2 years.  Sam’s unique set of skills, network and experience have helped Kobalt tremendously during a critical time of change and expansion for our company.  Not only does Sam have the solid connections that we’ve needed to amplify our story across tech, business and music media, but also a rare deep ‘insiders’  knowledge of the music industry.  

“I’ve also found that Sam is well liked and respected in both music and media circles.  He is reliable, industrious, strategic and extremely thorough.  Sam takes his work very seriously and personally, quickly able to immerse himself in Kobalt and reflect our values, our mission and our voice. I am confident that any client would benefit from working together with Sam and his team.“
Willard Ahdritz, Founder & CEO of Kobalt

“Name have been an important factor in putting the Association of Independent Festivals on the trade media map. It is testament to their contacts and tenacity, that AIF is consistently in almost every edition of trade press that is published and also capable of keeping us out of media when required. They have shown great understanding of the festival market in a short space of time, and we see them as crucial partners in our future plans.”
Ben Turner, Founder and Vice-Chair of AIF

“It’s been a joy working with Name over the past six years. From the strategic planning of campaigns to the drafting of press releases to the relevance of the ‘column inches’ procured, Sam and the Name team have pretty much nailed each aspect of what we need from our PR agency.”
