    Testimonials

    Mazzy is incredibly hardworking, dedicated, reliable, and has a beautiful positive can-do attitude. I’m so grateful for everything Mazzy has done for Peace One Day and it is an absolute privilege to work with her.
    Jeremy Gilley​ Founder, Peace One Day

    Bread Birmingham are a pleasure to work with – very professional and enthusiastic. Their knowledge of social media shines through when recommending ideas for both tactical and strategic posts. As for events, this is where they really excel with their understanding of what
    experiences guests crave both on and offline, delivering engagement within a community and a positive buzz as a result.

    Kimberley Owen, Content Strategy Manager, Mitchells & Butlers

    We worked with Bread to organise live music in a number of our coach stations linked to our status as the official coach partner for the Glastonbury Festival. They quickly understood our brief and hit the ground running at relatively short notice to make our idea a reality. Our customers were entertained without any negative impact on our operations and we were able to build a fun news story and great content for future collateral.

    Paula Mitchell, Head of Media - UK Coach, National Express

    Alex has worked hard developing a consistent brand identity and exciting events programme for the pub, generating profits and increasing our revenue each year. The team at Bread are always on hand to help, we could not have done it without them.

    Ciaran Healy, General Manager, The Old Crown

    “We’ve known Mazzy now for a long time and she’s a real pillar/asset of the Birmingham nighttime economy running her own successful events and venues before starting up Bread with Alex

    We love working with Bread Birmingham, they are always professional, keen to help out in any way, and have a fantastic network across the City. They assisted in the organisation and promotion of our midweek events to the greatest success.”

    James Swinburne, Director, Digbeth Dining Club.

    Fantastic company to work with, Adam designed high quality flyers in quick time and Mazzy supported our event organisation to make sure it went as smooth as possible.

    William Wong, Director, Chung Ying Group

    Mazzy and Alex are a superb team. They have great contacts with the press and nothing is ever too much. They are extremely personable and simply get the job done. I would highly recommend them.

    Lara Molins Caplin, The PR Network

    I’ve dealt with Maz and Alex professionally for some time now via Grapevine Birmingham and both are great to work with, dedicated, reliable, inventive and consistent with everything they do. From attending events, PR, marketing and much more. Would highly recommend.

    Nick Byng, Editor, Grapevine

    We have worked with Alex for 5 years now and have been consistently impressed with his varied knowledge, enthusiasm and efficiency. Any job is tackled quickly and to a high level and his passion for the industry is clear. His support has been invaluable in more than one area of
    the festival. Alex manages a variety of projects within the festival and constantly highlights his capability and dedication.

    I worked with Maz last year at Shambala Festival and was really happy with the programming she pulled together from her extensive network.

    When we first met it was clear Mazzy not only understood our brand and concept but actually lived, breathed and enhanced it! She came with a wealth of connections in PR, entertainment, and even helped us recruit the bar staff! Mazzy has become a key part of our management team ever since. With her expertise, passion and ability to make things happen I have no doubt that Mazzy and the Bread team will be an asset to any organisation needing creative services.
