Here’s what some people have said about working with me. Like what you read? Get in touch.
James hit the ground running with his exceptional knowledge of the sports and media landscape.
James is enjoyable to work with, he added value to our team, slotting in seamlessly to our approach to planning and developing each year’s campaign. As a result we saw a huge increase in our social media following, press coverage and, most importantly, we witnessed State of Mind become embedded in to the culture of Rugby League.

Working with James and the Love Rugby League brand during Kingstone Press’ first season as title sponsor was a great way for us to get our product in front of the rugby league audience. It gave us great brand exposure and provided lots of content for social media channels. The objective for Kingstone Press during year one of the rugby league sponsorship was to get to know the clubs, fans and players and to establish us as a credible and genuine sponsor. Through working with James we have been able to do that.

James was our main contact whilst we were negotiating and realising our sponsorship deal with local pro basketball team Manchester Giants. Whilst a small organisation compared to some of the better-funded British basketball teams, James brought a professionalism to the discussions which may otherwise have been absent.
Sports sponsorship is not something that we had done before so, in our naivety, James could have taken advantage whereby we could have ended up with a poor deal; however, I feel that he was fair and flexible throughout the process resulting in a good deal for both sides; he was also available as necessary to discuss and refine any issues.
On a personal note, James is a friendly face and easy to talk to – and, importantly, is full of imaginative ideas about how to try and improve things from all angles. The video he produced with us was much easier than I had anticipated, done in an unobtrusive and friendly way to help try and calm my nerves! I wouldn’t hesitate to work with James again, should the opportunity arise.

State of Mind commissioned James Gordon to oversee and develop our Media Strategy for the raising awareness and tackling stigma campaign
We were delighted with his efforts and what he achieved on our behalf.
The media coverage was comprehensive and included print, TV and radio and also innovative social media including facebook and twitter.
My colleagues and I were impressed with the quiet but assured manner in which he went about his work and how he readily kept us informed and reviewed progress
We are confident that the substantial media exposure achieved an increase in the likelihood of commercial support for our future campaigns.
We are happy to acknowledge the professional and high calibre outcomes achieved.
