The Real Petal Company Charles Hudson[2]Real Flower Petal Confetti Company founder, Charles said: “Conteur were the first film team I had worked with who properly researched what we’re doing as a company and their approach allowed us to feel properly represented in the marketplace. To be honest, I was quite overwhelmed by it, I couldn’t believe that anyone could capture the essence of what we do so harmoniously, it was amazing!”

The news continues a busy year for Conteur, which recently made a number of key appointments to its team having secured new regional and national clients, with businesses taking advantage of its integrated offering of PR, Digital Marketing, Video Production and Graphic Design as they look at new ways to communicate with their stakeholders and rebuild their marketing activities in the wake of COVID-19.

Gillian Davies, Director of Conteur, said: “This was a fantastic project to work on and the nomination is recognition for the hard work that our Video Production team has put in over the years to continually add value to the content we’re able to produce for our valued clients.
