Alternative health products company Dynamic Health UK, linked to
controversial promoter Rod Gunner, is being sued for breach of contract
by two PR practitioners.
Tracy Posner of Positive Communications claims that Dynamic Health owes
her PR agency pounds 24,000. Denise Bell King of 21st Century Marketing
claims that the company owes her agency pounds 30,000.
Brian Stables, a shareholder at the company, denied that either Positive
Communications or 21st Century Marketing had held contracts with Dynamic
Health. He denied that 21st Century Marketing had carried out any work
for Dynamic Health.
A third agency which recently finished working with Dynamic Health is
considering whether to bring a claim against the company.
The cases of Posner and Bell King are due to be heard at Aylesbury
County Court early next year.
The agencies involved claim to have worked for Dynamic Health UK over a
period of a year and a half. 21st Century Marketing says it handled PR
for the company between January 1998 and April this year. Positive
Communications says it worked between summer 1997 and January 1998.
Gunner has been advising Dynamic Health on marketing issues through his
company, RGO Group, and has attempted to mediate with one of the PR
agencies claiming breach of contract. But he denies any closer
involvement with Dynamic Health.
Controversy surrounded Gunner when he was director of RGE Events, which
staged the Jean-Michel Jarre concert in London’s Docklands in 1988. RGE
went into voluntary liquidation in 1989 owing money to companies
involved in staging the event.
