Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness,

I have had the great pleasure to work directly with Cathy, and can highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a reliable, hardworking PR expert who gets results. She has got great media exposure and developed a strong framework to share these success stories with our investors, customers and other third parties. Cathy has a great knowledge of health tech and lifestyle markets and adapts quickly to learning the ins and outs of each company she works with. Her background in journalism means she understands how journalists tick and knows exactly what they are looking for in a story. Highly recommend her services and very happy to have Cathy as a part of our team.  Marnie Faundez, NuroKor Bioelectronics

  "This was OjO's first ever PR campaign and Cathy was an extremely reliable and invested partner in our success. Ultimately, we successfully funded our crowdfunding campaign and we believe that getting PR coverage early on in the campaign was a key driver of the success of the campaign. Gaining features in relevant and well-regarded publications helps to build trust in our business and therefore encourage new customers to try our products. " Freja Smith, Marketing Manager, Learn With OjO  

“When we wanted to publicise the launch of our new company, Cathy was my first choice as she’d previously been my global PR manager, was extremely capable and good to work with. Thanks to her experience and skills, we gained some fantastic national coverage within our target industry and were offered a valuable speaking opportunity at a prestigious event. Cathy became a ‘trusted confidante’ to our business.” Tim Richards, CEO, Future Resume  

“Working with Cathy on various communication projects within West Sussex County Council was an absolute pleasure. Her knowledge, professionalism and skills allowed us to create positive key messages and quality items for publication and printed resources. I would recommend her to anyone needing a consummate professional to deliver both strategic and operational projects, effectively communicating with different stakeholder groups throughout.” Sarah Dimmock, West Sussex County Council  

"I have found Catherine Kelly’s PR service invaluable. I needed someone to help me review and reshape my website to better reflect existing and new areas of business, and to draw those browsing for the services my company offers to the new site. Catherine quickly understood my business requirements; produced a plan to meet them including an agreed price and delivered a high quality product, to budget and within the agreed timeframe. Throughout the process Catherine was great to work with; and I would definitely recommend her work to others looking for a professional, high quality, PR service." Nikki Gibbins, Director, Achieving Together (West Sussex)

"Since starting work with Catherine Kelly PR our media presence has jumped about 10 fold. Cathy is able to advise on how to go about securing the best coverage and has used a variety of channels, resulting in both print and radio coverage. She also set up and established our social media presence which has grown in a short space of time - giving us valuable extra exposure." Ian Inglis, Bluebird Care

Why me?

I work in partnership with my clients, using PR to raise their credibility and profile, including health organisations, small businesses and start-ups to those running national campaigns. I take away the stress and the work, but you remain in control.

Since setting up my boutique agency in 2015, I have worked with several leading public and private sector organisations, managing highly-successful campaigns in the healthcare, social care, recruitment, education and sustainable technology sectors.

I work with companies and organisations telling their stories and helping them to overcome their communication challenges.

And I'm the UK PR Lead for an exciting national public health campaign which launched Summer 2019, involving leading healthcare organisations.
