“Ayo took on a project to produce the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce's first ever Annual Review in 2009. Ayo had to work to a very short timescale so that the Annual Review could be printed in time for the Chamber's Economic Forum in October. Ayo produced the concepts and wrote the Annual Report in such a way that it was also a marketing document for the Chamber's services. We were delighted with the end result; his expert guidance through the graphic design and printing stages was also invaluable. “

David Lewendon, Finance Director, Arab-British Chamber of Commerce

“Presenting to a large group of postgraduate students is never easy. Add to this the fact that these students have a strong background in marketing and real estate, a talk about the role of marketing in the development of retail centres could have been particularly difficult with the students asking insightful and awkward questions. However, Ayo’s presentation was masterful and he fielded all questions openly and professionally. Ayo’s understanding of business and the importance of marketing was apparent from the outset and it was clear that the success of the projects with which he was involved stemmed from his own skills and knowledge and his ability to impart the same into all the team working toward the same goal regardless of their background. His presentation was exemplary and his enthusiasm, ability and professionalism shone through. “

“I worked closely with Ayo for many years on a range of major development projects in often very challenging circumstances. He is a committed individual with highly developed strategic marketing and interpersonal skills, his excellent public affairs and media management skills in particular proved critical to success on many occasions. “

John Bullough, CEO Aldar Properties PJSC

"Whilst at Grosvenor I worked closely with Ayo on a number of project and corporate marketing activities. Ayo always managed to bring intelligent focus to the task at hand and clearly recognised the commercial return required for any marketing investment. Above all Ayo managed to make the marketing process fun and jargon free."

Alan Somerville, Managing Director, SRG Estates Ltd

“I first met Ayo in 2005 when our agency successfully pitched for the brand development of Grand Arcade; a major retail scheme in the heart of Cambridge. From the initial meeting and briefing, it was clear that Ayo was a seriously experienced marketing and brand specialist. Often the instructions we receive from clients are ambiguous, ill-conceived and dare I say, 'lazy'. Not so with Ayo. His strategy for the project was clear and concise - we just needed to interpret his brief creatively and bring his vision to life through the brand. Once into the project, it was easy working with Ayo. As you'd expect with a project of this magnitude there were several senior stakeholder groups all needing their interests protected. Ayo guided the whole team expertly, diplomatically and with a sense of energy and creativity. The Grand Arcade brand is richer because of Ayo's stewardship"

Simon Barbato, Founder & Managing Director, Mr B & Friends Creative

"I worked alongside Ayo on the branding, market positioning and subsequent public consultation for Preston Tithebarn, a major regeneration project for Preston city centre. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him. He is a strong marketer who demonstrates good leadership, vision and strategic thinking."

Shams Maladwala, Commercial Director, Bupa Cromwell Hospital

“My company worked very closely with Ayo for 6 months on the detailed marketing strategy for the launch of Liverpool One. Together we successfully established such robust reasoning that the investors tripled the marketing budget.. Ayo was always supportive, a patient guide and a constructive critic throughout. It was a team effort. It would not have been possible without him.”

Stephen Fox, Managing Director, Fox Kalomaski

"Working with Ayo is a pleasure, he adds real value across the board. Constructive, professional and a good judge of creative work... I have no hesitation in recommending him".

Nick Pollitt, Creative Director, Bostock & Pollitt

"Some clients walk in to an agency and demand to be respected. Others walk in and command respect. The latter will always get the best work out of an agency and Ayo is firmly in that group"
