Ros Dumlao, Editorial Coordinator at International Paralympic Committee
The promotion and reach of the 2018 Boccia World Championships was top-class, and Jane was a major force behind that. She was proactive and initiated the first contact with the IPC to see how we could work together to promote the competition.
With a sport not many outside the Paralympic Movement are familiar with, Jane had creative ideas both editorial, digital and event-wise. The build-up to the event was well-done, and communications deliverance during the competition was organised and professional with daily reviews, livestream and quality photos.
She was also readily available during the competition to answer any requests, and also stepped outside her job description to help in the publicity of the World Championships (e.g. gathering athlete quotes for feature stories).
Jane had covered all the bases with the World Championships, was on top of things, reliable and a pleasure to work with.
Boccia UK Chair John Dowson
“Your contribution on PR both before and during the event was truly fantastic. Not only was that good for the Championships but this has really raised the level of engagement that the international federation will look to achieve in the future. Our GB athletes were universally appreciative of the profile raising that you led and they really enjoyed all the press, radio and TV interviews that they took part in. This has successfully raised the profile of the sport, now we need to maintain momentum.”
Hana Lewis, Film Hub Wales Strategic Manager
Jane was first recommended to us by a partner organisation. At that time, we were working on a national film season but didn’t have the time in-house to maximise the potential PR, something that we knew was essential in order to reach audiences.
Jane was a pleasure to work with, both professional and approachable. She understood the brief and helped us to secure a mixture of both national and regional coverage, not only working with us but with our members all across Wales.
As a testament to our relationship with Jane, we’ve gone on to work with her many times since this first project, from archive film screenings to World Alzheimer’s Month and we have new projects in development as we speak.
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for PR and communications support.
Laura McAllister, Chair of Sport Wales
I have worked with Jane since I was appointed to the position of Chair of Sport Wales in 2010.
As a very busy Chair with an often demanding media and PR schedule, it’s absolutely imperative that one can rely on an efficient, experienced and skilful PR Manager.
Jane was just that. She is a dynamic and energetic operator with an extensive list of contacts. She delivers comprehensive media coverage communicating key messages, first class copywriting and can be relied upon to produce innovative and interactive social media campaigns. Moreover she is calm under pressure and this is an often under related skill in media and Comms.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
