"Amber Forrest-Bisley and her team at Cardinal Spin were appointed as contract publicists for the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Sydney Children's Festivals. The Children's Festival is a difficult publicity event in that it is still a young brand, as well as being an arts-based festival at a time of great activity within the Sydney region. I have nothing but sincere praise for Amber and her team. They are enthusiastic, fun, professional, and delightful to deal with and work tirelessly in the lead up to understand our event, our story and our aims. The level of coverage we have achieved across both years has far exceeded our lofty expectations, both on a local and National scale. I feel that due to the work of Amber and her team, we are now in a National market position that is giving us great leverage for programming and fund raising. I would strongly recommend Cardinal Spin to any company and I look forward to working with them on future events within the CarriageWorks banner."Jamie Dawson - Executive Producer – CarriageWorks Festival Director – Sydney Children's Festival
