“Like most media owners, News UK would have preferred a single, benign monopoly to operate in the field of auditing contractual compliance. Once it was apparent that this was no longer a possibility, we had a choice to make. That choice was always going to be about being represented by the most talented individuals.
Kevin Waller is without doubt the most talented operator in the compliance audit sector, and we were delighted when he employed Jude Egharevba – It is our belief that these two individuals form the most formidable audit team in the market by a significant degree. The later addition of Andy Burn and other high level appointments has added more strength, wisdom and experience to the team, which we greatly welcome. Following the appointment of Concise, we naturally held full expectation that we would obtain the highest level of service, faultless professional conduct, excellent communication and very helpful advice from people who totally understand the media trading business. Our expectations have been met in full, and at times exceeded. We were confident we were making the right move at the point of appointing Concise. Less than a year down the line, we know for certain that we made the right move in appointing Concise.”

“We employed Concise Media Consulting in 2013 as our trading agreement compliance auditors. We are extremely pleased and feel that our choice has been more than justified, as their service levels have on numerous occasions exceeded our expectations. They have exhibited excellent communication, exemplary professional conduct and diligence in undertaking audits of our trading partners, a practice which entails a great deal of sensitivity, whilst also not skirting away from any issues.
Concise has demonstrated an in-depth understanding of our business and media trading in general, this is showcased in the sound and pertinent advice they provide.”
CORPORATE AD DIRECTOR
“The Concise team has worked with Bauer Media (EMAP) since 2006, and has recently won our Magazines share audit business. I formed a great working relationship with the team in that time and Kevin was our single point of contact with regard for the provision of all services to Bauer. The team worked hard to pro-actively manage the audit services, has an in-depth understanding of print/radio trading and was instrumental in delivering improved quality and performance to our organisation. They are diligent, well connected, conscientious and passionate about what they do. I cannot rate them highly enough.”
"Concise were employed by UKTV late 2013/early 2014 for the annual audit of the C4 sales representation contract. From the outset Concise demonstrated a clear and detailed understanding of the market context. They were thorough and accurate in their review of the contract detail and quickly identified appropriate parameters for the audit. Once on site Concise managed a thorough audit, regular and proactive communication back to UKTV whilst maintaining a good working relationship with key C4 contacts. Overall the work was carried out at the appropriate level of detail and the final report was detailed, clear and on time.
Concise proved themselves to be strong relationship managers, strategic thinkers with attention to detail. I would not hesitate to recommend Concise."
