Our testimonials

It’s not what we say about ourselves but what others say that carries most weight.

These are comments from just some of the lovely clients and journalists we have worked with over the years.

Michael Simkins

"Three rousing cheers to Lea Graham on the occasion of their 30th Birthday. They may be approaching middle-age in terms of years and expertise, but under the direction of Susan and Graham Fleet this special - and specialist - company has retained all of its youthfulness, dynamism and joie de vivre. Crack open the champagne and fling the bouquets in the direction of one of southern England's leading marketing relations and PR companies."

"Lea Graham Associates officiated as the South of England Agricultural Society’s PR Officer for more than 17 years and Susan carried out her role in a most professional and efficient manner. She created and maximised public relations opportunities resulting in valuable media coverage for the Society both pre and post events.
The Society is a registered charity and Susan enthusiastically embraced the Society’s objectives and charitable remit. We were extremely grateful to Susan and her team for all that they did in promoting the Society’s events and educational activities."

"Congratulations Susan to you and your exceptional team. Thank you for providing such a very professional, dedicated and very personal service, and for always going the extra mile to ensure each and every event is staged to perfection. It has always been a pleasure and privilege to work alongside you."

Mia Taggart

"I feel so privileged to have met Susan, quite by chance, back in September 2015. Since meeting her, my cake business has gone to the next level.

Little did I know that I would be celebrating having had a cake appear on BBC2, and saying that I had made the cake for Dame Vera Lynn’s 99th birthday, with the story featuring in several newspapers!

Susan has given me the tools to structure my business and the confidence I needed to believe in myself and my abilities. I never expected to achieve so much in such a short space of time!"

John Periam

"What an achievement - 30 years at the helm of one of the best PR Companies. Susan and Graham have a wealth of experience between them. Communication is what PR is all about, and Lea Graham has always been able to provide this. As an established photojournalist and feature writer they have provided media support when needed, and arranged some very special interviews with celebrities on their lists.  You feel like part of their exclusive family when working with them. A phone call, and before you know it you are being guided sometimes through the back door to have your media wish granted.  Thank you both; and nice to have you as good friends!"

Theatre Director

Sarah Hopwood

"I was once taught to judge a person not by what is in front of them - rather the trail behind; the picture they see in their rear-view mirror.  With this in mind Susan should smile. I have just loved working with Susan over the years. We have sat together around a boardroom table; as a consultant I have guided, coached and challenged her. She is an inspirational speaker who, when she knows she is on the right path, doesn't take 'no' lying down.  "Sue has the voice of an angel, the heart of a dove, a business head that is generous and fair, eyes that see goodness, ears that really listen drawing on wisdom and discernment maintaining great balance. She uses words to praise and be a blessing to others, with a touch that is gentle and kind. My honour to know you Susan - you deserve an award for your services to mankind. Huge congratulations on your 30 years!"
