Client Testimonials:

“We recently used Hopkins Communications for a major European Product Launch. The primary success factor for this activity was to create as much noise as we could via social marketing by getting the 250 employees on site and stakeholders around Europe to tweet, post and update. The results we have seen have been incredible and this is largely down to the plan, theme and event created by the team at Hopkins Communications. We will certainly continue to work with them and look forward to our next campaign.”
Gary O’Connell, Marketing Director - Trend Micro
“Hopkins Communications made all the difference between success and failure for our BBC News production in Ireland. Both before and during our stay there, the team applied their professional skills to making it one of the smoothest productions I’ve ever worked on. In the face of complex logistical challenges, which included dealing with the office of President of Ireland, the team could not have been more efficient, energetic and effective.

They were available whenever we called or emailed in or out of hours, they set up all the right guests, gathered footage and really understood TV and our needs… which is rare among many PR companies.”

Duncan Kennedy, BBC News & Timothy Nicholson SBJ Network News
“While working on behalf of the events associate sponsors, Cork County Council and Cork City Council, they were a pleasure to deal with. They developed an integrated marketing campaign with innovative ideas that helped the Irish Open exceed its footfall target, which has never happened in the history of the tournament before.”
Antonia Beggs, Director - PGA European Tour Championship
“Our drinks distribution business, with over 100 internationally recognised brands, has grown considerably over the last number of years and our advertising, design and public relations strategies are constantly changing to target a nationwide audience.

Mark and his hard-working team are a pleasure to deal with.”

“Hopkins Communications proved to be invaluable in assisting the Barbarian FC market the first Barbarians v Ireland International Rugby match in Limerick – Thomond Park on Friday 4th June 2010. Their efficiency, professionalism and knowledge of not only the Irish market, but sports, events and rugby were exceptional, which achieved a sell out crowd for the fixture. They delivered an integrated above and below the line marketing campaign to the highest of standards providing outstanding value for money. If you are a brand / company looking for a marketing agency to work with in Ireland, I could not recommend them highly enough…”

They helped us out so much and didn’t moan once. They are a credit to your company.”
Dee Moore, Corporate Events Co-ordinator, BIM (Bord Iascaigh Mhara)
“I would like to thank each of you (and all the other HC staff involved) for a job really well done on Monday. Short notice and changing by the day (the hour in some cases) but you handled the event with a professionalism that impressed all. From a personal point of view, the HC team made my job so much easier and for that I am most grateful.”
