“Still to this day, I vividly recall interviewing Vicky for the role of PR & Marketing Manager at The Vineyard at Stockcross (back in 2002). Her vibrant personality, natural interest and curiosity in people and in learning about new products combined with her understanding that PR is not just about generating press coverage, it is ultimately about creating a sales opportunity, I knew then that she was the right person for the job and that she was destined for an exciting career.
Almost 5 years later, as a result of her hard work, commitment and expertise in writing eye catching press releases and dynamic copy and in developing excellent relationships with food and wine critics, the national and trade press, she contributed to putting the then relatively unknown The Vineyard Hotel on to the national gastronomic map and launched Michelin starred Chef John Campbell’s career and cookery book. During her time with us, The Vineyard achieved an unprecedented amount of press coverage.
I have watched with pride over the past 10 years Vicky gain even more success with the iconic Berry Bros. & Rudd and earlier this year encouraged her to set up her own business by recommending her services to her first client as a freelance PR consultant. Her pitch against four other PR Agencies was by far the best and I know as Major PR she will achieve yet greater things for her future clients.”
