TESTIMONIALS


“In a media world where some PRs are just waking up to the importance of working with bloggers, Karen has been doing it successfully for years. She works hard to create imaginative collaborations and uses her first hand and finely tuned knowledge of bloggers to carry her ideas through. Her trusting approach is refreshing and she's incredibly efficient, understanding and forward thinking. I have many PRs contact me every day but I know working with Karen will always be fun, well organised and beneficial for both of us.”
Vicky Philpott, Vicky Flip Flop Blog

“Karen is a joy to work with. Full of energy, creativity, and this comes with a keen business sense and a great knowledge of how television works. GMTV has worked with Virgin Holidays on a number of successful projects and these partnerships have worked in large part thanks to Karen.”
Owen Masters, Senior Producer, Good Morning Britain (formerly GMTV)

“I've always enjoyed working with Karen. She has a thorough knowledge of the travel and comms spheres and her professionalism and dedication is consistently outstanding.”
Danny Rogers, editor PR Week

“Karen has worked with us since she launched her company. She put LaSource on the map with the sleep school concept and has since delivered the Blogathon concept for our Barbados property, an Island “Hopathon” blogger sequel, ITV’s The X Factor and an Olympic swimmer workshop that has taken us to 100% occupancy for May 2014. Karen’s results are world-class; the proof of which can be found in the exemplary coverage for us. She works tirelessly to achieve the best results in an often saturated editorial marketplace. We could not find a more skilled and dedicated professional. I cannot put a value on Karen's importance to our company – she is simply priceless. My team love her involvement, passion, honesty and friendship”
Paula Whitehead, MD Europe, Elite Island Resorts

“The first time my path crossed with Karen’s was when we were both working on a major campaign for SAGA and I have not looked back since. The experience was incredible, something that only comes about when a project has a clear vision and supreme attention to detail. Karen has years of experience in the travel industry, mainly at the premium end but had not ventured into the world of beauty PR before. For me, it was a leap of faith. I have worked in my industry for 30 years with many PR companies but TippettPR has brought a refreshing approach and restored my confidence in what good PR can deliver. Karen makes me feel safe, she is passionate about achieving the best for her clients, I never have to chase anything up, I can pass something to Karen and relax in the knowledge that it will be taken care of to the very highest of standards and achieve the brief we have agreed. Karen is a journalist’s dream.”
Errol Douglas MBE, President of Fellowship for British Hairdressing
