'Paul joined me at Manning Selvage & Lee to work on a launch for a very demanding client. He only had two years' PR experience but the client soon requested that he head its million-dollar account.
'Before long I involved him in a sizeable European consumer pitch and, without fuss, he took the lead and did a fantastic job.
The day before the pitch, when I noticed he was shaking with nerves, I remembered this guy was just a new kid on the block.
'Much to my relief - but not surprise - I found out he was a great presenter the next day.
'Paul is good natured, a team player, impossibly organised and has a natural affinity for PR.'
Paul Gittins is now account manager at Manning Selvage & Lee.
