Kevin Anderson, Managing Director, Kinesio UK

Kate is creative, super-efficient and highly effective.

Julia Hankin, Head of Marketing, Life Centre Science Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne

I have been working with Kate for about a year now 2014/2015 and she has really been of benefit to securing great PR and press for the hotel. She is approachable, knowledgeable and delivers results. If it’s your first venture into the world of PR, then Kate is definitely your best bet. She is highly experienced, has a great understanding of how the media and journalists work and will endeavour to be as cost effective and results driven as she can be. You are getting a highly competent and talented consultant working with your business, rather than employing a huge agency at a vastly over-inflated cost, only to discover, that it’s a 22 graduate working on your account. I have been so impressed with Kate and the media exposure she has generated for the hotel, that she is working on the national PR for a new start up which is launching September 2015.

Janet Stansfield, The Rosebery Hotel, Jesmond

We wholeheartedly recommend Kate Slater PR. Kate first handled our PR during our Taste of Northumberland campaign. The results proved such a success that we came back for a second campaign, Wild Spirit. Her extensive network of media contacts and creative focus has resulted in fantastic positive coverage from national publications such as The Times, Telegraph, Daily Mail and Metro UK.

Bethany Gallacher, PR & Social Media Manager, Northumberland Tourism

Thanks Kate. I wish all PRs were as efficient as you!

Angela Wintle, Mail on Sunday

Kate has brought a whole new meaning to delivering above and beyond expectation. She constantly thinks up fresh ideas and carries them out to fruition smoothly and efficiently. She is extremely organized, prompt and has a fine eye for detail. Kate has extensive media contacts and uses them well. Her professional pride in her work means that second best is never good enough. I could not have achieved even a fraction of our success in the North East without her. She is also great fun, and an absolute joy to work with.

Janet Kipling, St John Ambulance

I get deluged by press releases but the ones you send out on Northumberland are always lovely to read and look at. Looking forward to doing a feature on Northumberland very soon.

Hannah Reynolds, Cycling Active Magazine

Kate is a sincere, credible PR expert with a warm yet powerful manner twinned with solid business experience and expertise in her field- a winning combination. I can highly recommend her services and can vouch for her skill, integrity and persistence to achieve results.

David Cliff, MD, Gedanken Ltd

It has been my pleasure to work with Kate over the last few years and I would never hesitate in recommending her PR services. I have seen the quality of both her writing and her media placements for clients, as well as working with her on numerous PR projects. She always works with integrity and has a fabulous sense of humour too!

Angela Carrington, The Bigger Picture Ltd

Kate Slater PR has handled all our marketing, publicity and advertising for the past 2 years. She has very successfully managed these activities, working within our ever-changing budgets, handling all things from initial briefings and concepts through to final delivery, including advertising copy, brochure production and website design input, not to mention the more obvious press releases etc. We are delighted with how professional and conscientious she is and she’s really been a great asset to our business.

Mike Blakeley, MD, The Wood Heating Company, Cramlington

Kate has been a source of inspiration in how to get our message across. Her track record and capabilities are second to none and her connections and insights and superb. I can’t recommend any PR other than Kate and commend her highly for creativity, flair and great value.

Caroline Millar, Owner, The Hideaway Experience, Dundee, Scotland

We used KSPR for a one-off press release to help to establish a recently refurbished holiday cottage. With her great contacts in the national press we had a fabulous feature in Country Life magazine and a full page competition in Living North magazine and 9 separate pages in 9 regional newspapers including Birmingham Post and Coventry Telegraph. Kate understands exactly what journalists need for a good story and her insight and enthusiasm were like a breath of fresh air. With her social media guidance she also enabled us to look at our business in a new way so that the initial publicity has had a lasting effect.

Catriona Fursdon, Fursdon House and Estate, Devon

It has been enormously useful working with Kate, not only have I learnt a lot about the media in general and have some new skills to take away; Kate has left us with an easy to follow marketing plan which has proved extremely useful and we have been able to share this across our various media platforms.  The media work carried out by Kate on our behalf generated great interest in our Job Law project – our story was picked up nationally and we received a number of referrals from outside the north east as a result.  Our local work also increased following coverage on a local TV station and local newspapers.  I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Kate again or to recommend her services to other small businesses.

Vikkie Wilkinson, Business Development Manager, Gateshead Citizens Advice Bureau Enterprises/Gateshead Citizens Advice

Kate has proved a dream!

Bob Cuffe, Lambton Castle and Estate

I recommend Kate Slater and KSPR unreservedly!

Alun Moore, Project Manager, Doxford Hall Cottages and Beacon Hill Farm

Kate Slater has provided excellent PR and Marketing for our holiday enterprise for many years and we hope will continue for many more – using her initiative, intuition, efficiency and common sense to ongoing promotion of our business.

John Sutherland, owner of The Ducket and Outchester and Ross Cottages

I’ve really enjoyed working with Kate. She’s professional and supportive in her approach. She’s been so creative in the way she’s adapted the media opportunities to bring out the best in Lindy Jazz. From our initial meeting to our final project, Kate has been been clear about my aims for the PR campaign and has brought me far more coverage than initially expected.

Joo Lee Stock, Lindy Jazz Club

We have worked with Kate on a number of occasions and also recommended her to clients. Kate knows Press and PR and gets results but more than that she gets to the hub of a business, its unique selling points and how Press and PR can enhance wider marketing activity. Kate is also easy to work with and delivers on time.
