"When I first met Lief and shared with her Newby's passion and mission she instantly grasped the essence of the brand and was as excited as us to share our story. The reason I hired SBC is because they stood out in their PR approach: they took Newby from commodity status to thought leader status and secured great profile pieces in our target publications.
"Lief and her team have shown unfaltering enthusiasm since working with us and this has come across in all their dealings with the media and I know this has made a huge difference when pitching stories and securing media space. It is an honest pleasure working with SBC, the team is ideas-led and they have a "nothing is impossible to achieve" attitude."
