"The PR coverage of articles, various events, charity, and critiques, have been of considerable value to me and my work. Dean Powell is extremely experienced in PR and assured my front page on the Western Mail. Thorough with details and always gives me the courtesy of vetting any article."

Iris Williams OBE

 

"Dean Powell's work as journalist and editor was always first-class. He possessed a tremendous store of knowledge of the whole of the South Wales region. This enabled him to set rolling news stories, local and regional, into relevant, wider contexts. He was able to combine a natural curiosity with skill in the use of words to produce a popular newspaper that generated lively debate across a great range of subject matter. His approach was honest, open and straightforward - and much-valued among his readers and subscribers."

"I chaired a meeting of Cymmorodorion when Dean Powell gave a lecture on the life of Dr William Price. Dean held the attention of a very discerning audience through a combination of presentation skills; mastery of his subject and, critically, clear and concise text. Crafting words is not a science : it is an exacting art form. Dean showed great skill in that art form and enjoyed, as a result, an enthusiastic reaction to his lecture."

Robert John, Wales in London

"I have shared a platform and stage with Dean on very many occasions. He is professional, lucid, informative, humorous, a raconteur, and the embodiment of Welsh culture and stature, standing at just 5'6" and proof personified that Lloyd George's comment that Welshmen  'should only be measured from the neck up' is gospel true. Dean is a fantastic compere, a fine singer.  His intellectual depth, and journalistic backgroundare well illustrated in the books he has written, the one on Dr.William Price, being a definitive biography on the wild Welsh eccentric."
