"Working with someone like Ellen who is so strategically focused and creatively talented has made my life so much easier in 2020, especially when launching a new brand during this time. Whether she was looking at innovative pitches, writing high-quality press releases, helping with PR worthy research to gauge and ascertain interest from the larger publication names, helping develop concepts to influence and change brand perception or expanding our contacts to ensure that we reached target publications through different tactics; she has been a joy to work with!"

Kerry Gould

"Ellen has delivered excellent work for us on a number of projects with our B2B clients. She has taken ownership of a research report and seen it through from conceptualisation through to data analysis and delivery, and supported our team by securing some high profile media coverage. Incredibly thorough and proactive, I have appreciated her ability to really get under the skin of our clients’ business, understanding their industry challenges and always keeping an eye on the next news hijacking opportunity to jump on. I hope we get the chance to work together again."

"Ellen was a vital member of the team at Experian, who shared her knowledge and expertise to help develop and mentor junior team members. She was always quick to understand her division's issues and was adept at creating innovative and creative campaigns to support the business by means of effective, professional and timely communication. Ellen has a keen sense of what makes a good news story and how to target the most appropriate media, whether traditional press or through social media, to best promote her clients' interests."

"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 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."

"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!"

Brett Marlow

"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 a big help when running a small busy business. I would have no problem recommending Ellen & Nellie PR as a quality PR partner."

Lucy McIntyre-Sowter

"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."

Julie Smith

"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 it’s fair to say that we came away from our free consultation with a feeling of renewed enthusiasm. Ellen gave us comprehensive guidance. She 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."

Julie Smith Creative

Philip King

"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."

Kate Hills

"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."

Kate Hills

Kate Hills

"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."
