    Testimonials from people I have worked with

    Helen McNallen
     

    Mission: Social Change Leaders + Conversations + Beaches

    Helen was Michelle's client at Depression Can Be Fun

     

    I have been working with Michelle since November 2009 and she has guided me through the maze of PR and communications in general. I have found her consultation invaluable when it has come to writing PR releases for the launch of my book, setting up my Facebook page and assisting me through social media communications like Twitter. She has also helped me edit my book and content on our Website and copy for inclusion on partnership sites and marketing collateral. Her media training and messaging guidelines has also made the fear of interviews, especially live, a lot easier to handle and has helped me to focus on my key points and objectives when being interviewed.

     

     

    I find her very easy to work with, she will go the extra mile and has invested time to understand my requirements and even provided me with leads and contacts that have lead to partnerships for my Website.

     

    I can honestly say I would not have been able to achieve what I have without her help and expertise

    Michelle is an excellent partner when it comes to increasing a business or individual's profile in the public domain. She is very effective and creative in her approach. She is also very honest and will not make false promises. I would strongly recommend her work.

    Rick Allen

    Director, Allen Consulting Services Ltd

    Rick managed Michelle indirectly at Euan Barty Associates in Hong Kong

     

    Rick Allen*

    Michelle moved from London to Hong Kong to take up a position as senior account manager. This involved leaving friends and family behind and starting life afresh. Within a short period, she was settled and developed a broad circle of friends. She is gregarious by nature and proved to be a very good team player, being supportive of peers and mentoring juniors. She was confident and focused in her job, and developed good relationships with her clients. I wish her luck as her career path evolves.

    It probably seems strange to talk about what not to do when contacting journalists rather than how to talk to them, however when building relationships with the media, avoiding the pitfalls is key. Your reputation is everything and as we know first impressions count.
