How I see it


What the journalists say


About the agency

"In general the City PR industry is a disgrace. Maitland has proved on occasion to be an exception . . if I am ever asked for a recommendation I would generally say Maitland"

"They know their stuff, they’re always on the ball, always sent you client info without you having to ask for it and are just easy to get along with"

About Neil Bennett, chief executive

"I’ve had a relationship with Neil for years. He understands his clients, understands what a journalist wants (because he’s been one) and has a certain oily charm!"


I’m absolutely thrilled to have our work and skills recognised by the people that matter – the media.

It’s impossible to communicate for clients without credibility, good relations with, and the trust of journalists.

To know we are rated in this way is fantastic. It shows we are delivering quality across the board not just for one or some, but for all our clients.
