“I worked with [WYC founder] Paul Gardner at the Press Association for more than 10 years, during which time I always found him to be trustworthy, reliable, efficient and talented. A clever wordsmith with a sharp eye for detail, Paul is at his best when tasked with a clear brief which he invariably delivers with the minimum of fuss. 

Paul is known for quick, accurate copy and is the master of the pithy headline and astute turn of phrase. I worked alongside Paul in a variety of roles at the Press Association, both in London and Yorkshire, from 1998 until his resignation in 2008, and would not hesitate to recommend him for any project requiring a versatile, dependable journalist with flair and personality.”

— Ray Chudley (Senior Multimedia Production Journalist, Press Assocation, June 1998-February 2014)
