global pr & social media - specialising in consumer electronics
Founded in 1990, Robert Follis Associates (RFA), offers a wide range of advertising, marketing public relations & photographic services to the consumer electronics industry. We know a lot about the products and technology we represent, don't have to spin the press a line and don't continually revert to the client when difficult questions are asked.
Principal Rob Follis has been in the business for far too long and can remember his first cassette deck. He is a trained electronics engineer, a professional photographer, app developer, Apple tech specialist, cocktail barman and lives and breathes gadgets, Hi-Fi and music.
