KATE HILLS, MEET THE MANUFACTURER

“Nellie PR did an amazing job at promoting our first ever Meet the Manufacturer event. They not only secured features for the show within the trade and business press, but also gained significant exposure for our exhibitors too, many of whom had never had any contact with journalist or PR companies before.”

CHRISTOPHER NIEPER, DAVID NIEPER

“Nellie PR has been an excellent appointment and has unlocked the power of PR for us.”

BRYONY THOMAS 

“Ellen and I originally hooked up on Twitter through a mutual contact. We’ve since worked together on two clients. She’s a really proactive PR professional. She was quickly up to speed with some complex client propositions, and managed to secure decent coverage quickly. She has a good balance between a long-term strategic view and the need to be responsive and tactical at times.”

KATE HILLS, MAKE IT BRITISH 

“I’ve had dealings with Nellie PR through their work with various UK manufacturers and I’ve always been very impressed with the high profile coverage they secure for clients.

“They have a very good knowledge of the UK manufacturing industry, great contacts, and a proactive and professional approach, so were my number one choice to promote the first ‘Meet the Manufacturer’ event, for Make it British.”

PHILIP KING, CHARTERED INSTITUTE OF CREDIT MANAGEMENT 

“Ellen is imaginative, creative and articulate. Her practical and thoughtful approach helps create an environment in which the business can develop its thinking and move ideas forward. Her input has been valuable and will deliver real payback to the business as we implement the ideas and concepts she has identified, and helped us identify for ourselves.”

JULIE SMITH, CHANGING FACES

“We approached Nellie PR as our business 30th anniversary approached feeling a little out of touch with modern PR and being a bit confused as to where we should focus our energies to carry the business forward.  I think its fair to say that we came away from our free consultation with a feeling of renewed enthusiasm.

“Ellen gave us comprehensive guidance.  She was was very easy to work with and grasped the essence of our business straight away, something noticeably lacking in our previous PR experience!  Her insight  and recommendations will help us to keep ahead of the game.”

Lucy McIntyre-Sowter, Answer-4u

“Ellen approached our PR strategy with great enthusiasm and just a few short months into our campaign we’re seeing some great results and lots of press coverage which is exactly what we wanted. Ellen is very constructive, approachable and above all fun to work with. I can’t recommend Ellen and Nellie PR highly enough.”

David Ritchie, Jobs in Risk

“We hired Ellen to deliver monthly narratives to a newly created blog area on our on-line recruitment sites JobsInCredit & JobsInRisk. Ellen has a fantastic knowledge of not only the credit industry, but critically for us, how to deliver results in the on-line social media space. Our sites have now been acquired, and due to the quality of Ellen’s contribution – we have recommended to the group that Ellen continues with us as a supplier moving forward.”

BRETT MARLOW, JOBS IN CREDIT

“We engaged Ellen and Nellie PR to help coordinate the PR plan for our leading niche jobs boards at the end of 2010. Prior to this we had been disappointed by the PR companies we had worked with as they did not understand our business or the industry we work within. Ellen has a fantastic knowledge of our industry and is very creative in terms of the ideas and content she has created for our own web pages as well as external publications. Ellen is proactive with her advice as to how we should drive our press activity which is big help when running a small busy business. I would have no problem recommending Ellen & Nellie PR as a quality PR partner.”

Richard Lloyd

“I have found Ellen both an articulate and enthusiastic supplier to work with. In her field she is very knowledgeable, and was always willing and able to focus these skills into the project at hand. Ellen has also demonstrated that she is well on top of her brief as regards the latest challenges in the ‘social media’ driven world in which we now operate.”

ANDY TAYLOR, INFO GROUP

“I’m really impressed with Nellie PR.  Full of ideas and very proactive, Nellie PR has surpassed our expectations and has an excellent knowledge of the marketing industry with great media contacts to match.  As a result, we now appear regularly across the marketing press and are now looking to ramp up our public relations and online PR activity with Nellie PR over the coming months.”

LOUISE SOULSBY, AVIVA

“Nellie PR has worked with East Midlands Development Agency (emda) on the copywriting and production of our quarterly newsletter – emda News – since Spring 2008, which is distributed to over 11,500 people.

CARLY FERGUSON

“Ellen is incredibly enthusiastic in all that she does, keeping up-to-date with all the latest news and trends she has kept us ahead of the game with regards to social media. Always reliable, Ellen rises to a challenge and shows as much passion for our business as we do. A pleasure to work with, I would strongly recommend her as a supplier.”

ANN STANLEY, ANICCA 

“Ellen and I first met at a training workshop where she was one of the first delegates from a PR company that understood the importance of SEO. We have since worked together on some mutual projects and I continue to be impressed by the quality of her written material, her passion for both on-line and off-line PR and her ever increasing knowledge of social media. In addition Ellen is a pleasure to work with and is the ultimate professional!”

NATALIE FOX

“Ellen and I worked as colleagues in Experian’s PR Department from June 2003 until she left the company to create Nellie PR. During that period, I had the great pleasure of working alongside her and experienced first hand how resourceful and hugely creative she is. She frequently came up with and implemented new and innovative campaigns to publicise Experian’s data capabilities, many of which still remain and continue to create headlines long after her departure. She gets along extremely well with staff under her supervision, as well as colleagues at her own level. She is highly respected, as both a person and a professional, by her media contacts, suppliers, and clients alike. She is a natural PR talent and I wish her and Nellie PR nothing but good things for the future.”

ZOE STAPLES

“A consummate professional, Ellen takes the time to understand her client’s market, their needs, and salient industry issues before ably crafting messages that push the buttons of her target media and achieve the best coverage possible. A fun, engaging and straightforward communicator, Ellen is also a creative networker who forges strong media and client relationships that pay dividends and achieve results.”

DAVID KERRY, EAST MIDLANDS BUSINESS

“Having seen Ellen’s work with clients, I have no hesitation in recommending her services. Ellen is customer focused and always strives for perfection!”
