What our clients, partners and journalists have said about us over the years
We began working with Gabrielle Shaw and her team at a crucial period for our brand as we were transitioning from a successful B2B business to D2C. Under Gabrielle's guidance her team helped us to devise exciting and impactful strategies, including a focused multi-level influencer programme. We have seen the brand grow exponentially during the last two years and a hard working press office and influencer strategy has been a big part of that, with particularly good results for our Christmas 2022 and launch of our salt and pepper mills. We have benefitted enormously from Gabrielle's vast experience and guidance in the ever developing digital world, along with her charming team she has continued to produce creative and interesting campaign strategies not just for the UK but the USA.

The team at Gabrielle Shaw Communications has been monumental in Forest Essentials’ first international launch in the U.K. Market. We had an excellent press event at Jikoni, which was the perfect venue suggested by the GSC team. The synergy between the restaurant and what we represent as a Brand couldn’t have been a better fit. We witnessed a good press attendance from key titles and that couldn’t have been possible without the effort that had been put in by everyone. Thank you GSC, for giving us a dream launch!
- Sanya Dawar, Marketing and Public Relations Forest Essentials
I have a lot of respect for you and for your work. You have dedicated so much energy, effort and enthusiasm in this project, that you only deserve appreciation. I personally want to thank you for your support, creativity and especially for your vision that has been since the beginning “very vogue” to work with you was a great experience and I really appreciated the way you managed every detail. I want you to know how pleased I am with the layout of the show and with the posters for the exhibition. I’m very sorry and I hope we’ll have the opportunity to meet at the next exhibition in New York

Gabrielle Shaw Communications over the last ten years have played an essential role in delivering a strategic communications direction for the Corinthia brand. Since the initial pre-launch of the Corinthia hotel in London and its continued development onto the established scene, Corinthia have benefited from the insightful and targeted work Gabrielle and her team deliver to our global audiences. Being an essentially family brand at heart, with a cherished reputation from our origins, the communications strategy required to launch the brand in London needed to balance structure with innovation. At all times at all times the uniqueness of the assets created in Corinthia London were exemplified in their work, building a rich layer of understanding of the offerings that needed media attention.  A compelling story was told, through many channels, that allowed the hotel to come to life, importantly supporting our financial goals and building the Corinthia brand reputation to new audiences. Gabrielle and the team continue to work on projects for the Corinthia helping the brand differentiate in new destinations. Never too large to lose focus and direction her team and herself are always on hand to guide and deliver the results needed in the competitive and ever changing luxury market we operate in.
