  "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

"I worked with Catherine Kelly PR and was exceptionally impressed. I had attempted to use a couple of other PR services, but the results were disappointing.  During our first three months,  she secured a number of PR opportunities, including several newspaper articles, radio interview, monthly column and a large magazine feature.  Not only this, but she is knowledgeable about social media, blogging and speaking engagements.  She listened carefully at our first meeting and assessed my needs – and then drew up a tailored plan to meet them.  Our budget is fixed, with the opportunity for flexibility where required, so I have peace of mind.  I would not hesitate to recommend Catherine Kelly PR.  She is a delightful person with whom to work and a total professional." Miranda Banks, Director, Smartivate and Excel in Exams

How do you measure Public Relations & Media Coverage?

Public Relations used to be notoriously hard to measure. It was a crude tally of circulation x column inches and wasn’t a comprehensive reflection of the true value of PR.   Fortunately technology has changed all that!   When I’m running a campaign or providing ongoing PR and sending out Press Releases, I use software …
