Client testimonials

Here’s more about my experience, how I’ve helped some of my happy clients, and what they’ve said.  Plus, some recommendations from people I worked for in-house.

Communications consultancy

Ali wrote, delivered and presented a very comprehensive, far reaching and thorough communications audit for Help Musicians UK. With her recommendations and analysis, Ali has surpassed expectations. I have really enjoyed working with Ali, she is a powerhouse.

Indy Vidyalankara

Indypendent PR

Ali is brilliant to work with!  She has bags of experience, is proactive and knowledgeable and has produced quality comms and marketing campaigns for us. We’ve drawn on her skills for social media management and content production, website research, email newsletters and blog-writing. Her ability to be strategic and planned as well as jumping on opportunities and getting stuck in with all the team is especially valuable for a small charity with limited resources.

Marketing and communications support

 

Ali’s fantastic! A super consultant, communications professional and team player; she was a real asset during her time with us. Ali took on a very busy and demanding interim role, which required a broad range of communication skills and experience. She hit the ground running and absolutely delivered! She’s brilliant at juggling and prioritising and at building strong relationships; she’s got bags of energy and enthusiasm; always rises to a challenge and produces quality work quickly. Her impact was significant in the relatively little time she had with us.

Claire Hislop

Head of Operations, Solving Kids’ Cancer Europe

Ali provides us with much needed support and extra capacity at busy times in the year, and has worked across a whole range of projects and campaigns for us. She has consistently provided excellent results, timely responses and high quality copy for social media, print marketing and web pages. She’s slotted in seamlessly to work alongside the internal team, as well as liaising with our other external suppliers and contractors, on campaigns delivered to a wide range of audiences. Not only that, but she has also provided valuable advice on campaign design and delivery that has helped raise the quality of our work, particularly for younger audiences. Ali is highly adept at using her own initiative to keep projects moving forward without needing huge amounts of input from our team. I would highly recommend Ali to any comms team who are looking for an excellent external consultant or project manager.

Marketing and communications training and mentoring

 

I found the sessions really useful as they helped me to understand the trends behind marketing, through analytics and stories. The little, helpful tips really made a difference, they have been really effective. The training was really informative and interesting, plus easy to understand and follow. 100% I would recommend Ali.

Social media strategy

 

Ali delivered a thorough and high usable social media strategy for our company. She quickly understood our business and got to the heart of who our audience is and how we might engage with them. Her recommendations were detailed but practical and we were able to implement them immediately. We also benefited from Ali’s ongoing support in understanding and getting the best out of social media platforms. Thank you Ali – an outstanding job.

Charity sector expertise

 

Ali has a superb knowledge of the charity sector. She is calm in any crisis, super organised and has a real passion for making sure that anything she does is of the absolute highest quality. I valued Ali hugely for her ability to spot opportunities and be proactive at making the most of them, whether that was for a great story, some innovative social media activity or a way of developing herself and a team. Her strategic advice and counsel has always been spot on and she managed and led her team in a supportive way, whilst always expecting the highest standards. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough for anyone who is looking for senior level comms expertise from someone who really delivers.

Claire Monks

Head of External Communications, Macmillan Cancer Support

Ali is a fantastic communications professional. She is adept at developing robust communication strategies, brand and reputation management, maximising PR and social media opportunities and managing internal and external relationships she had with us.
