My motto is “Advice Before Price”.

The free planning services is offered as a result of hearing my customers frequently moan about the time it takes to fend off persistent advertising sales people, supply artwork to numerous different publications in various formats but lacking the skills, time and expertise to do it well.  As we have the skills, time and expertise to do it very well, why not take advantage of this free offer. 

Langdon Scott Ltd is a culmination of my 30 years in international and local marketing communications, sales,  advertising and publishing. My team now handles the magazines operationally so I can focus on helping our advertisers as detailed above; whether it’s advertising or advice or complementing this with marketing support, design or media planning, I am happy to help.

Good advice pays handsomely.
Poor advice can prove expensive!
