Client testimonials

It’s a very well known fact that the majority of people want to know the opinions of others when making a decision to purchase a product or service. With this fact in mind, please read below what some of my clients and connections have to say about their experiences of working with me.

colin bennett, racquets manager (david lloyd gloucester) and david lloyd tennis team operational lead

Ade has had a significant impact in the way we communicate with our club members and how we are seen on a national basis within the David Lloyd network.

Ade can quickly turn around our requirements into engaging and easy to read posts backed up with some great video content that our members love to view and share.

He is a valuable member of the David Lloyd Gloucester and DL Tennis Team and I would definitely recommend him to other sports clubs who are looking to increase their social media presence.

Since setting up our H&W County website and social platforms in 2013 Ade has revolutionised the way we communicate and engage with clubs and players in Herefordshire and Worcestershire.  He has enabled us to share and gather news and information in a much more efficient, effective and beneficial way and provided us with new sponsorship opportunities.

Online leagues, live social feeds and our own YouTube channel have allowed us to engage with our clubs, coaches, players, sponsors and the general public in a far better way than we could before and for us to hear about their news and stories which we love.  Targeted social media campaigns have been very effective in increasing participation, driving new people to our local tennis venues.

The analytics that Ade produces give us a clear picture of how effective his contribution is – he is an invaluable member of our H&W Team and we are extremely grateful for the work he does on our behalf.

From day one, Ade has had a significant quantifiable impact in terms of improving our online presence. As our appointed media partner, Ade has set up a range of new channels on behalf of Tennis Oxfordshire in order to maximise audience engagement. He is a pro-active, has some great ideas and his infectious enthusiasm is clear to see. We are already starting to reap the benefits of his experience and knowledge.

Ade applies a cost effective approach to projects, as evidenced by our recent Nature Valley Big Tennis Weekend campaign. We have lots of stuff in the pipeline, including our annual Festival of Tennis and other county activities for which we know we can rely on Ade to play a pivotal role.

joe tyler, sports pr consultant

Adrian is an accomplished social media professional with a passion for tennis, which comes through in everything he does.

When working with Adrian at Henman Communications, his insight has been invaluable as a Social Media Consultant. With a strong and active network in tennis, Adrian has advised on strategy and has been particularly helpful in his counsel towards influential stakeholders - be that governance or commercial partners, in a regional and national context.

Adrian adopts a pragmatic, cost-effective approach at all times, which helps all parties (particularly mine as the Account Manager!). With a sharp analytical mind, Adrian is able to use insight to shape strategy, in order to offer a tangible return to the client. A natural social media marketer, Adrian has an innate understanding of everything social - key messaging, content delivery, and the nuances of each channel - and is well-placed to execute campaigns that maximise ROI.

What impressed me most when working with Adrian is his ability to 'understand your audience' and 'build the brand'. In such a competitive industry, Adrian understands that in order to attract - and then retain - an active audience, you must first and foremost know who you are and what you stand for. Adrian was able to help activate a multichannel campaign to achieve just this for one of Henman Communications' clients. With a warm and considered approach adopted at all times, Adrian is a pleasure to work alongside and bounce ideas off.

I'd have no hesitation in recommending this sports-mad, social media savvy pro - and look forward to working with him again in the future.

harry ash, disability development officer - tennis foundation

Adrian has been brilliant at promoting the work that is being done in Hereford and Worcester to get more disabled people involved in tennis. He has used creative posts on social media and videos to highlight the great work that is going on in the county.

Dean swingler, head of tennis - david lloyd worcester

Working with Ade is a breeze, his ability to deliver high quality in a short space of time is second to none.

Ade has helped me develop a healthy relationship with our members by clear and accurate communication methods which catches the eye of everyone.

I would recommend Ade to any company that wishes to bring something unique to their business.
