Joanna Symons, Commissioning Editor, The Telegraph, Travel Supplement:

“Over the years my colleagues and I have come to the conclusion that there are only a handful of really good travel prs - and Rhona is emphatically one of them.As far as I'm concerned, she has been Cornwall's unofficial pr for several years now, and she is the first person I turn to if I need information about the county or help in setting up a trip. More than this, she is pro-active, she knows and loves the area, keeps her finger on the pulse and is bursting with ideas for great travel stories. I have come to trust her opinion and her judgement, and when I've visited Cornwall to write pieces, she has been incredibly helpful in suggesting places to visit, eat and stay. I genuinely can't think of a better agency to represent Cornwall. ”

Sally Shalam, Freelance Travel Journalist:

"Always friendly, efficient and highly professional with an understanding of the needs of the British travel press. As an example of our work together, Port Eliot Fest is featured on my page in Conde Nast Traveller this month. Get thee to WH Smith."

Paul Henderson, Health & Sports Editor and travel writer, GQ:

“The mark of a great PR agency is that you can go back to them time and again and they always get you what you need. I have worked with Excess Energy for over three years and they have never let me down. Quick to respond, even faster to deliver, they have always been professional, reliable and incredibly efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend them, or get in touch with them for support. In fact, I think I’m going to call them now…”

Chris Haslam, Sunday Times Travel:

“It's long been the feeling on the Sunday Times Travel Desk that Cornwall hasn't bothered with decent PR because it didn't really have to try but in the two years I have been dealing with them EE has successfully changed that perception.I met the agency through Hugh Ridgway, who spoke highly of their enthusiasm and proactivity in promoting the St. Moritz hotel up the hill from Polzeath. Since then we have worked the generation of copy for the Retallack Resort, the Port Eliot festival and news coverage of the regeneration of Newquay. Requests for information have always been met with a prompt, accurate and imaginative response.As a Cornishman I am genuinely impressed by their knowledge of and passion for the county and I can honestly think of no other agency more qualified to carry the baner Peran. No money changed hands in the writing of this recommendation.”


"I have been to, and written about Cornwall on several occasions over the past five years and Rhona Gardiner and her team has always gone beyond the call of duty in helping me to research and plan visits both with a direct link to her clients and beyond. She is genuinely passionate and infectiously enthusiastic about her home county and boundlessly energetic in promoting it."

Lee Trewhela, What's On Editor, Cornwall & Devon Media:

"PR companies can often be over-zealous or frustratingly unhelpful – Excess Energy is neither. The team has certainly helped to raise the profile of Cornish businesses, events and concerns both inside the county and further afield. Excess Energy is a company you can trust – the team always comes up with the right info at the right time. They’re a pleasure to work with."
