Educate, Inform, Persuade

Our clients are diverse by industry, region and culture yet they share three core characteristics: they are commercially astute, they have a clear sense of direction and they enjoy strong leadership. In this section you can explore some of the projects we have delivered.

Avril Owton MBE owns and manages The Cloud Hotel based in the heart of the New Forest in Brockenhurst, Hampshire. A dynamic business personality in the region, Avril works hard to promote both her business and the industry at large. When the AA awarded Two Red Stars and recognised it as a prestigious ‘Inspectors Choice Hotel’ Avril asked Emmett & Smith to help raise awareness of this achievement amongst the local press. 

In addition to the coverage already achieved in Good Housekeeping and Caterer & Hotelkeeper, E&S conducted media relations with local journalists and secured coverage in the Southern Daily Echo and Hampshire Life magazine; as well as interest from the Park Radio and BBC Radio Solent.

Avril Owton MBE, Owner, The Cloud Hotel:  “I have worked with Emmett & Smith in the past and they never fail to impress me. Emmett & Smith is proactive, transparent and results driven and crucially, they have experience of working in our sector and understand the issues the industry face.”
