TESTIMONIALS


“Louise is one of the travel industry’s friendliest and hardest working PRs. Nothing is ever too much trouble. She can turn round a journalist’s request in no time at all and is a joy to work with. She knows what is, and what is not, relevant for each publication she deals with, and is always at the other end of the phone or email ready – and willing – to help.”
Heather Lowrie, Deputy News Editor/Travel Editor, The Scottish Sun

“If you work in travel and need a PR expert speak to Louise. Quick to get under the skin of your business, she acts as a seamless extension to your team, crafting releases and pitching stories with an unerring understanding of both the target media and the audience. From dealing with consumer and trade press, managing interviews and getting coverage, to working on integrated campaigns, or planning reactive comms; Louise just delivers. And, is there anyone in travel she doesn’t know?”
Elliott Pritchard, Chief Marketing Officer, Travel Republic

“Louise is fantastic at what she does, and was a great support to us before, during and after our Business Travel Journalism Awards. For three consecutive years, she ran the overall nominations process, oversaw the judging process and panel of eight, and wrote host’s script for the event. Her energy is infectious, and she’s efficient, proactive and easy to work with. If you’re looking for PR support, you couldn’t ask for better.”
