“Peter Ashworth is a legend. I’ve done major PR in LA, New York and London, and I can tell you the work Peter did to help me promote my concert evening at the Winter Garden was second to no one. I had only 48 hours in Toronto, six weeks before the event, and Peter made sure every hour was filled, every talk show visited, every media accounted for. We sold half our one thousand available seats in those two days! His personal touch with social media was a big part of that; if you didn’t know I was live on such n’ such a show at such n’ such a time, you were living in a cave. And Peter is as generous as he is driven; it was clear from the look on every face at every venue that he’s well respected in this town. There’s only one Peter Ashworth. But then that’s all you’ll need.”

Eric McCormack, Actor (Will & Grace, The Concert I Never Gave)

“Peter Ashworth and Ashworth Associates have done a fantastic job getting media coverage for my interior decorating firm. They quickly jumped into action and in just a short time began securing a steady stream of television spots as well as newspaper, magazine and online articles. Peter and his staff are personable, attentive and fun to work with. Peter has trusted relationships with all of the local lifestyle columnists and editors, meaning his clients are paid attention to and don’t get overlooked by busy media professionals with very full inboxes. Peter is wonderfully enthusiastic, supportive, and a great player to have on my team. I look forward to our continued work together.”

Their very professional help was key to garnering us media coverage for the World Club Crew event in Toronto 2006.

Their wonderful press releases and media contacts show that they really grasp what we are about…and how to get our message out there.”

Thanks also for juggling all the media requests so capably on day-of…despite Dr. Boyd’s disappearing act! A job well done.”
