Agencies sue alternative health supplier over fees

Alternative health products company Dynamic Health UK, linked to controversial promoter Rod Gunner, is being sued for breach of contract by two PR practitioners.

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.
