TESTIMONIALS


“I think of Nicole as a backstop PR – someone who will always get me the information I need and by the (sometimes ridiculously) short deadline I've usually been given. I know I won’t be given flannel and the advice or information she'll give me will be thoughtful, well-researched and reliable.”
Sarah Turner, former deputy travel editor Sunday Mirror/freelancer for The Times and other publications

“Silverjet’s PR was one of the many major successes at Silverjet and delivered a huge volume of business and brand building value. Much of this was down to Nicole's hard work, brilliance and determination.”
Lawrence Hunt, CEO, Silverjet

“Nicole Walsh is a seasoned professional within the PR arena and has a take charge attitude that is clearly valued when dealing with PR issues.”
Jeff James, VP, The Walt Disney Company

“I have worked with Nicole for some years now and there is no PR more professional, dedicated and knowledgeable. She is sharp, has great flair and awareness and is, without a doubt, deservedly at the top of her game. Nicole understands how journalists operate, has great contacts and therefore gets publicity. She is simply a delight to work with.”
Trisha Harbord, freelance travel journalist and former News of the World travel editor
