Below is a selection of testimonials we have received regarding our copywriting, web content, publicity and photography services. Much of our work comes from personal recommendations.
“The Society has been very impressed by the thorough and detailed work that Phil has put together for us. It is very cost effective, and items are always prepared to the highest possible standards.
Communications are extremely good, and the Society has been delighted with the business relationship. Thank you for the excellent support.”
Julian Coles, Chief Executive Officer of Tamworth Co-operative Society
"Phil Wrote a brilliant piece on my weight loss story which he got into a West Midlands glossy publication. This has led to items in the local newspaper and the story getting into national women’s magazines. A real deliverer of what he says he can do!"
Sue Veszpremi, founder of Weight Away, Rugeley
”Phil produced some excellent editorial for me regarding my new health insurance business and the success that I am having with it. He very quickly formulated the angle of an article, wrote the finished article straight off and, true to his word, got this accepted and published as editorial in a local Derby newspaper.
I found Phil to be very enjoyable company and a true professional in his art. He very clearly knew what he was doing. There is no puzzle as to why Enigma Communications are a success. I have no doubt that he could have worded this recommendation so much better than I have done!”
Robert Brown, franchise business owner at WPA Healthcare Practice, Derby
“There were tears in my eyes reading all that you have written. In all the years I have been in business, and the many times people have tried to write my content, nobody 'got me' but you have really captured who I am and what I am trying to achieve. Thank you. I am very happy...happy and more happy!”
Maria Tucker, Managing Director of Gate 11 Events Management, Walsall
”We contacted Phil to help us with our website write up. We wanted someone to really understand our business and the message we wanted to give to our prospective clients.
Phil really got to know our business, he visited me on numerous occasions which enabled him to give us excellent content for our website.
We would like to recommend Phil to any business looking to create a website.”
Jay Dhillon, Managing Director of Recruitment Boss, Derby and business mentor for The Prince’s Trust
"I cannot recommend Phil enough. It was a really relaxed process, good value and most of all he took the time and trouble to find about my business. His detailed article "got me" immediately, so much that I did not change a thing.
Really good value as I can use the article time and again, turn it into a handout for sessions, link it on my blog and website, numerous things. Give Phil your business details and trust him. I did. It’s a great outcome. Thanks Phil."
Tanya Leslie, owner at Intransition Coaching, Birmingham
”We got in touch with Phil to help us with wording on our website and brochure. He showed a great interest in our company and spent a lot of time researching the way we worked and our client base.
The end results were excellent and we were very pleased that we got Phil in rather than try to do it ourselves.
We will definitely use him again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others looking for a similar service.”
Douglas Cope, electrical engineer at Excitation and Engineering Services Ltd, Birmingham
”It’s the ultimate frustration. You have a great business and want the world to know how good it is, but you just can’t find the right words in your website descriptions, sales pitches, or flyers.
No matter how hard you try it all seems a little underwhelming. Thanks to Phil Shanahan and Enigma Communications the descriptions of my business finally do justice to what I have to offer and I’m now certain that potential customers will gain the best possible impression of my company.
Phil’s words and pictures have breathed new life into my business image. As well as operating a successful management/sales training company, I work as a business adviser and mentor. One piece of advice I can give to all new and established businesses is to contact Phil Shanahan at Enigma Communications.”
Nigel Heald, owner of Specific Training Solutions
“The Chamber of Commerce was delighted that Phil Shanahan agreed to be the guest speaker at our business event to talk about the power of words and pictures.
We have received such positive feedback from delegates. Phil shared his wealth of knowledge and experience on the power of publicity and also gave some practical tips that delegates could take away and implement in their business.
Press coverage is a powerful way of promoting your business and the Chamber would encourage businesses to contact Phil to learn how to do this more effectively.”
Chris Plant, Divisional Director for Birmingham Chamber Group
“I can always say that an artist can have great talent, but it is people like yourself who promote and publicise the work that makes a great artist. Thank you for everything you have done for me.”
“Your experience and expertise helped us to immediately gain an audience that we could not have hoped to reach without you – huge stories in the local press, a four-page magazine feature and a 17-minute slot on BBC radio.
Trust me that this has had a very positive effect on our morale and belief in the cause. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to others – and have already done so.”
John Connolly, founder of Scogg stomach cancer charity, Tamworth
“Phil Shanahan is a published author, first-class writer and editor. He is known for his creative energy and commercial awareness. His impressive record of achievements speaks for itself.
He led a newspaper campaign which won three major national awards for campaigning journalism and his work on the Colin Grazier story has helped to put Tamworth on the map.
I cannot recommend him highly enough on both a personal and professional level.”
Gary Phelps, Editorial Director at Central Independent News and Media, Tamworth
“On both a personal and professional level I simply cannot praise Phil Shanahan enough – and as such I genuinely believe Enigma Communications will be a massive help to any client which seeks its services. I worked with Phil for the best part of 15 years and always found him to be honest, hard-working, enthusiastic and to have total integrity.
All of these personal qualities shine through in everything he does professionally, and he has the ability find stories and then relay them in a way that delights and engages the reader.
As a hugely respected journalist he also knows what the media is looking for – and this knowledge, plus his wide network of contacts and a natural charm should open many doors through which his grateful clients will be able to walk through.
I simply cannot recommend him and his company highly enough. Phil is a first class communicator and a man you can trust will do the best job possible for everyone lucky enough to work alongside him.”
Sam Holliday, Development Manager at Federation of Small Businesses and former Editor of the Bath Chronicle
“Phil Shanahan has done some exceptional work for Bletchley Park for a number of years now and he has helped us to achieve some fantastic publicity.
He has an outstanding track record in the media and we aim to continue our links with him in the future. I would thoroughly recommend Enigma Communications.”
Simon Greenish MBE, former Chief Executive Officer of Bletchley Park
“Phil played an integral part in transforming a regional, paid-for newspaper into one which won the best title in the country. Amid stiff competition and tremendous upheaval, he helped to galvanise the editorial department, showed tenacious journalism skills and never stopped smiling. He would be a great asset to any business.”
Mike Richardson, former Executive Director at Local World Media, Managing Director, Iliffe News and Media, Chief Executive LSN Media, Managing Director Bedfordshire Newspapers, and owner of MRP Property
