Oxford Property Consulting
What our clients have to say

Fortitude was very clear about what it could offer and have performed over and above how it said it would. Fortitude has significantly increased media coverage of my business and delivered coverage which is entirely on brand. Greig is dynamic, thorough, hard-working, approachable and a great guy. I couldn’t recommend Fortitude and Greig himself, highly enough.
