"Katy has been a key asset in helping us grow Count the Kicks from a small charity to one of the most recognised pregnancy charities in the UK. Thanks to Katy's expertise and knowledge of PR we have featured in Closer magazine, Daily Mail, BBC, The Express, The Mirror, The Sun, Huffington post to name a few.
Katy has also helped us work alongside Hollyoaks on a very high profile stillbirth storyline. As an awareness charity, exposure is vital to our success and Katy delivers that in droves. I cannot recommend Katy highly enough."
Elizabeth Hutton, CEO, Kicks Count
"Katy did a brilliant job in helping us to provide added value to one of our key clients through the promotion of a series of community benefit events. These events included the organisation of a media day where press could visit the archaeological site we were working on. This was also followed up by a community open day which was attended by 1,400 local people.
The success of this event was largely down to the media buzz which Katy helped us create by forcing us to think outside of the box to provide a more accessible story for the public. Katy also showed us how to be more organised in relation to the press, helping us to understand their specific requirements and processes."
"Katy is an incredibly effective communications professional who has consistently delivered. She has an admirable ability to swiftly get to grips with complex subjects, and add value with considered advice and sound judgement on significant issues. Her drafting is second-to-none, and she's helped our team enormously, by picking up projects and turning around well honed copy, quickly, and with little input."
Nic Stevenson, Principal, Policy Development at Civil Aviation Authority
"Katy has been working with us at MGN events for around 3 years now as a PR consultant. Katy has provided excellent PR, writing and consultancy services for our business. Katy has successfully raised our company profile both online and offline. Many excellent press releases have been written and published to our industry media, local and national media and also related online industry blogs. Katy is a valuable external asset to our company."
Mike Walker, MD, MGN Events
"Katy is one of those rare people in whom you can place absolute trust. She grasps communications issues and challenges very quickly and delivers great results to seemingly impossible deadlines. Katy has been an invaluable part of the team at COI, not least due to her incredible intellectual capabilities. She is unusual in her ability to grasp a myriad of issues simultaneously and to satisfy a diverse range of clients without allowing anyone to feel as if their project is less important than another. Whatever the pressure, Katy is able to deliver high-quality advice and more importantly, to deliver great results to those who work with her."
Emma Thwaites, CEO, Thwaites Communications
"Katy did a good job of coordinating our PR activities and managed to get us in front of the BBC which was very helpful for raising the profile of our company. The BBC also released a video which is still on their website and of course we reference this all the time from our own web presence. I'd recommend Katy to other organisations who are looking to strengthen their presence and brand."
John Guyatt, Director of Telehealth, Solutions 4 Health
"As a medium sized company, rated as being the leading consultancy in its sector and aiming at around a £7m turnover, Thomson Ecology presents many challenges for marketing, so it has been great to have a safe pair of hands in whom I can entrust the specialist PR function for the whole business. I have found it remarkably easy to work with her and have come to rely fully on her wisdom, professionalism and ability. The PR work has reinforced the positioning strategy and complemented other marketing activities, and beyond this her work with many of the members of the scientific staff has contributed to a change of mindset so that they think more about PR and opportunities for publicity than they did before. This, together with the coverage we have achieved and our burgeoning reputation with the media, has forged the backbone of marketing in the company."
