Paul is without doubt one of the UK's leading experts in avoiding the legal pitfalls that can trip up any radio broadcaster. His larger than life personality and his ability to make a serious and complex subject enjoyable and entertaining is one of the reasons he's been successful for so many years. I have no hesitation in recommending him and if you want to make sure your presenters, journalists and contributors don't land you in trouble, you should hire him!Terry Underhill, Group Programme Director, UTV Media (UK)
Paul is genuine, knowledgable, enthusiastic and a consultant who offers real learnings and insight. There are many reasons to hire him, but my own was simply good business. Hiring Paul went a long way to ensure my staff didn't fall foul of the law and we ended up paying big legal bills. Selfish I know!John Myers, Chairman TeamRock
Paul Chantler is not like any other radio consultant. When I was doing breakfast at Metro and had left several PDs behind he earned a seat at my top table simply on the basis of one thing. He got up at 6am to listen in real time - a contrast to a previous manager who would wander in at mid-morning and want to play back the show at 1230 when I was already well into the next day. I didn't agree with everything he said but on day one he earned the right to say it, and where we had a healthy difference of opinion we had the relationship to create, solve and deliver regardless. A top man. A rarity between between a jock's friend and those who sign the cheques.Tony Horne, Metro Radio
