CENTRAL RESEARCH LABORATORY
Julia joined us during a very busy period and was fantastic in getting stuck in, balancing and responding quickly to the multiple demands on her time - being incredibly organised and structured in her process.
Julia supported us with marketing and promotion of two key events where we more than doubled engagement/sign-ups from previous years.
Julia's bubbly, positive and can-do approach made her pleasure to work with.
CLEARLYSO - EUROPE'S LEADING IMPACT INVESTMENT BANK
Communication is key in any working relationship, especially when working remotely and Julia is completely outstanding in this regard. She is engaged, receptive and very reliable - qualities I do not take for granted in those I work with.
Frankly, Julia makes my role infinitely easier as she is self-reliant, great at offering suggestions and also open to feedback. She genuine joy to work with and is an incredibly pro-active individual.
I would not hesitate in recommending her to others, she is a valuable asset to any team and a great extension of ours!
EQUALITY IN TOURISM: CREATING CHANGE FOR WOMEN
Working with Julia a lovely breath of fresh air. I was one of the clients that knew kinda what I wanted to happen, but didn't have a clue where to start.
Julia came in, took the reigns and made recommendations from the very beginning - it was exactly what I needed. Her reporting structure is comprehensive and insightful and she was very happy to talk me through what it all meant and how I might be able to use it.
I really enjoyed working with Julia,
UK HOME OFFICE - RUSSELL COMMISSION
Julia is a great communications and PR professional with experience across a range of mediums including TV, radio and print.
She helped us to launch the consultation for the Russell Commission which was hugely succesful and engaged thousands of stakeholders, including 6,000 young people.
A few months later, she led the launch of the Commission's report which secured extensive national and local media coverage - this included a TV interview and feature on the BBC, along with supporting coverage on radio and consumer/trade print.
Julia really knows her stuff and led our communications strategy with confidence which delivered the goods we needed - I'm very happy to reccommend her.
FREELANCE MARKETING STRATEGY & COPYWRITING PROJECTS
Julia is a superb professional - reliable and talented. She worked with me piece by piece and was quick to grasp the tone of the communications.
Everything she undertook was delivered without fail - and in short lead times. I hope, and plan, to work with her again on projects. Julia is outstanding and I highly recommended working with her.
