"John has been working for us for some months now, helping us raise the business profile. There hasn't been an article or piece he has submitted about us that hasn't appeared in the press and we have had some excellent coverage. John works with many of my business associates and I would recommend John to anyone looking for PR."

Rebecca Wilshire
Business Development Manager, Domino Commercial Interiors

"Having used John’s services for five months now I can highly recommend John Highfield PR. John uses a monthly meeting to brainstorm & focus our attention on what message we are trying to convey, we then explore the content available and John works his magic to make day to day business activities become news worthy PR stories. John has raised our profile tremendously with regular pieces in The Sheffield Star, The Telegraph, First for Business, The Sheffield Chamber Website as well as national industry specific magazines like The Recruiter. Always positive and always passionate John is always a pleasure to deal with and I would have no hesitation in recommending John Highfield PR."

Louisa Harrison-Walker
Managing director of Benchmark Recruit

"Working with John has lifted our company profile greatly. Clients feel re-assured to see the press quoting us and our referral rate has increased.

After many years in journalism John is perfectly placed to call upon his relationships and has the editorial skills to be able to produce a piece that can simply be cut and pasted into a publication.

John is also very creative with ideas and is a delight to work with."

"I have worked with John Highfield during his tenure as Editor for The Star Business Monthly. We met when he interviewed me for a feature about my life and business.

I was impressed by his thorough approach to the feature, his easy interviewing style and the final product. It was clear he was experienced in interviewing a huge range of people from business owners to celebrities. However, his approach makes an interview a pleasurable event rather than a stressful one.

We met at various events after the publication of the feature and I believe John is an excellent editor and a prolific networker and public relations representative. He has a wide interest in the arts and his talent does not stop in the field of writing. I wish John well for the future and would recommend him as a writer or marketing and PR representative to any company or individual wishing to work with him."

Margaret Haywood
Managing Director, A For Appointments

"I have had the pleasure of knowing John for the last 15 months, whilst he was the Editor for the Star Business Monthly. During this time John has been an amazing asset to myself and to my company Morgan Dias Immigration Consultants. John did our first ever newspaper article and since such time I have had the pleasure of John assisting me raise the profile of myself and the company. Without hesitation I would recommend John to anyone or company looking at raising their profile within the media. I look forward to working with John more in the future"

As a freelance writer I worked with John Highfield when he was the Editor of The Star Business Monthly. He was a pleasure to work with as an editor, his attributes were exactly those required from an editor i.e. encouraging, motivational, positive, and most of all, always smiling.

John took the time to meet me and understand the person I am, as such, I felt that this developed a more productive working relationship between editor and writer. As a freelance writer, encouragement and motivation are the things that are missed due to the nature of working alone. I never felt I lacked either of these during the time we worked together.

Additionally, John's writing abilities were also excellent, so a mutual respect builds up between writers, which strengthens the editor/writer relationship. I miss working with John; however, I am sure he will go on to greater achievements.
