Mark was recently employed for the second time by the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons to negotiate a new publishing agreement for JPRAS. Once again, the Working Party formed to work with Mark on this project have stated that he provided an outstanding service advising and supporting BAPRAS. Mark led the process from start to finish. Mark is extremely knowledgeable in the world of publishing and showed outstanding strategic thinking, planning and attention to detail as well as being very personable to work with. BAPRAS have secured an excellent agreement with the Publisher, thanks to the input from Mark. We would not hesitate to use his services again or recommend to other organisations.

Mark provided an outstanding service advising and supporting Primary Care Respiratory Society UK to develop a new business model for its Journal and to identify a publishing partner. He guided the process every step of the way. He is extremely knowledgeable and has the rare strength of being equally strong on strategic thinking, planning and attention to detail as well as being very personable to work with. The outcome in terms of the partnership agreement we secured was beyond our expectations and there is no doubt Mark made a huge difference to the credibility we had with publishers and to our negotiating position. We had excellent value for money!
