I continue to liaise with Mari on marketing and communication advice around the area of sustainability in particular. Mari's knowledge and skills are always current and reliable."

"I have worked with Mari for a number of years on various projects. She is bright, intelligent and her enthusiastic personality ensures that people want to work with her. In 2014 Mari managed a six month marketing project for Stills Branding which involved Mari working as the interim Marketing & Comms Manager for one of our clients. Mari's skills, experience, her importance to the organisation and her ability to get on with people, resulted in her being offered a permanent role as the Business Director. Mari is professional, capable, engaging and successful and I hope we continue to work together."

Chris Carpenter

Managing Director STILLS Branding

"Mari Arthur managed two successful events for LCRI in 2015. The launch of the LCRI Report was well received and the launch of the Solcer zero-carbon house has had wide-reaching results, nationally and internationally. Mari was also instrumental in securing a visit to the Solcer House by Vice-Premier Madam Liu and her delegation from China. I hope to continue working on future projects with Mari and her team."
