Our Clients

“The team from Luminescence have firmly embedded themselves into the Møller team and culture and have inspired us to confidently differentiate this leadership programme from that of our competitors. It has been a very exciting journey so far.

“We are delighted with the creative concepts and their execution and project management under very tight deadlines and modest budget. We have had very positive initial feedback on the video and are looking forward now to seeing the results of the campaign and selecting 25 pioneering explorers for the first cohort of this amazing programme.”

“Anna Lawlor led two recent projects for the FT as Editorial Director – Investing for Global Impact 2016, and Innovation in Family Businesses. With the projects carrying substantial sponsorship revenues and including contributions from high profile figures, careful handling of contributors and commercial partners was key.

Anna grasped the brief for both very quickly and was very adept at working with all stakeholders on both projects, which can be very challenging. Both reports have recently been published and have been extremely well received by the market and by their respective commercial partners.

Having worked with Luminescence for a number of years the quality of writing was never in doubt – but their ability to quickly build expertise in new subject matter, and forge relationships with stakeholders, was particularly impressive on these projects.”

Andy Lee, Marketing Manager

The Financial Times

“I’ve worked with Luminescence on a range of thought leadership programmes and highly recommend them. They can handle both data crunching and getting high-level interviews, and bring it all together with a clear, easy writing style. Notably, Anna Lawlor produced a report for us on innovation ecosystems which Barclays commissioned to support their CEO at the Davos World Economic Forum (WEF). It was a great success – very well received!”

Monica Woodley, Managing Editor

“Working with Luminescence was made easy as a consequence of their insightful and varied journalism, an innate awareness of the audience and a steadfast commitment to hitting every deadline time and again, even when things changed at short notice. I would highly recommend commissioning Anna Lawlor and her team for similar content projects.”

“I have worked with many different ‘digital’ agencies from many different countries. Luminescence is without a doubt the strongest agency when it comes to using copy for direct response marketing and brand building.

Luminescence is one of Saxo Capital Markets’ top strategic partners. They have supported us in every stage of our value chain from training our teams of financial executives and compliance officers, consulting us on our editorial strategy, writing copy, and executing social media campaigns and events.”

“It was a valuable session which paid out real returns and re-orientated my marketing and campaign planning. Anna patiently and competently took my team through a day’s training on SEO and Google Analytics. By breaking down new concepts into bitesize and logical chucks and being so enthusiastic about her subject matter, Anna was a star trainer.”

Esther Woods, Marketing & Communications Manager


“The copy I received from Luminescence was bang on brief, engaging and accurate and demonstrated thorough research and expertise. All communications were quick and professional and I felt confident that the work would be usable as soon as it was delivered.”

Rebecca O'Connor, Web Editor

“As a busy chief executive who travels a lot, I come into contact with a huge number of small businesses and consultancies. My experience of Luminescence has really stood out.

Anna and Anna are exceptionally talented – they are knowledgeable, enthusiastic, engaging, perceptive and extremely empathetic. I wish more people that I came into contact with delivered a similar level of professionalism and expertise.

Also, I genuinely liked both of them. I’m generally quite a hard man to impress, but I was left with an incredibly positive impression of Luminescence and am very much looking forward to working with both ‘the Annas’ on an ongoing basis.”

“I’ve been working with [Luminescence] for just over a year now, and I have to say you would be hard pushed to find a more engaging, challenging and enjoyable PR firm.

They are not only fun to be around, but incredibly committed, hard-working and thorough, and have produced the best PR coverage for Taylor Vinters that we have had in a very long time.

They challenge the norm, create lasting relationships with both the client and the press, and I would happily recommend them.”

“Thank you Luminescence for an excellent and enlightening training session.

Everyone in the room was fully engaged with the trainer and concepts covered. Because of the session, my team feels inspired and more confident in exploring social media and using it to enhance our marketing efforts and help achieve our company goals.

I have worked with many training companies over the years and have often been disappointed by the lack of tailored content and depth of content on the day.

You certainly didn’t disappoint and I was extremely pleased with the way you listened and took on board all our objectives and tailored the session to cover everything we asked for and more. Your expertise and professionalism was exceptional.

Thanks again Anna for a fantastic session and we will definitely be working with you again.”

“For me, the biggest success has been appearing in The Sunday Times, as this was a personal target of mine. That one photo, and its little bit of text, was worth its weight in gold.

Subsequently, we have a potentially amazing project, and from that initial concept, we already have a recommendation from that client to another…. but I don’t want to recommend Luminescence – I don’t want other Architect’s to steal them away from me!”
