It has been a pleasure working with David Alexander and his team at Calacus during the London 2012 Olympic Games. He brought wide experience and expertise and worked very closely and efficiently with AIBA’s Communications team in a fairly complex environment. His contacts within the international press and media really benefited AIBA to get a wide range of positive coverage. A truly great job.

Calacus provided UK media support for the Nissan Outdoor Games. Despite the challenge of selling the pan-European story to UK media on a tight schedule, Calacus secured a range of coverage from trade and general interest titles. They reacted quickly and we were delighted with the results Calacus delivered.

MEI has worked with Calacus for good number of years and we have had the privilege of collaborating with them very closely on a number of projects. I have no hesitation in saying that Calacus has consistently been outstanding. David Alexander has a very open and inclusive style, takes personal interest in all aspects of what his team are delivering and the approach from all his staff is that nothing is too much trouble; the answer always starts with “yes”. Calacus are experts in the sports-related market and together we work on the most important MEI projects which will continue for years to come I am sure.

David was given extremely short notice of our need for professional help to publicise the takeover of Brentford FC by Bees United, the Supporters’ Trust, and yet achieved outstanding coverage for us in all the key media. He immediately identified the elements of the event which would attract the most attention and achieve the greatest impact and we were immensely grateful for his advice and the personal attention he afforded us throughout the process. It was a momentous time for us but it might have passed unnoticed if David had not stepped in and steered us through it. As it was, our members basked in the media spotlight and the whole issue of supporter owned clubs was given fresh impetus.
