What they say

“I had the pleasure of working with Katie when she supported the CIPR Inside group. Her diligent approach to communications planning and event management helped us hold successful – and very popular – events. From discussions with thought leaders, webinars, ‘glitzy’ award ceremonies to our annual conference, Katie played a key role in the planning, promotion, implementation and delivery of our activities. From a personal perspective, Katie’s engaging and collaborative style pulled people together, so that even the most arduous tasks were completed on time and with a smile! If you have a communications challenge and need someone who will take the time to understand your issues and tailor a solution to meet your circumstances, I would highly recommend calling Katie.”
Paul Summerhill, Executive Communications & Community Relations Manager, Leidos

“I invited Katie to undertake and internal communication audit at Futures Housing Group. We needed to find out what our people were really thinking about a range of campaigns and our strategic direction. Katie created and delivered a thorough audit plan, interviewing key people and holding focus groups alongside an in-depth company-wide survey. Her approach was spot on for our business and we are using the findings she delivered through her clear and actionable report to inform our approach to internal communication across the business.”
Mike Underwood, Communications Manager, Futures Housing Group

“Katie seamlessly stepped in to help us with some internal communications requirements as well as pulling together a variety of award entries. Katie is an absolute pleasure to work with: she has the ability to swiftly understand all manner of different requests and deliver work of a very high quality in a short time frame. She is unfailingly professional (always maintaining contact to give progress updates) while always being extremely personable. I would not hesitate to recommend Katie as an excellent communications consultant.”
Beth Hurran, Communications Manager, Arup

“Katie works with CIPR Inside to provide marketing and communication support and practical help with our conference, events and Awards programmes. Katie is totally dependable, flexible and is really highly regarded by her colleagues on the Committee, our sponsors and wider partnership community. She has helped with our messaging and social media strategy and she’s also undertaken delegate management and promotion for significant events in the CPR Inside calendar. Katie is a great writer, pro-active, has attention to detail and what’s more, lovely to work with. CIPR Inside wouldn’t be what it is today if Katie Marlow wasn’t involved.”
James Harkness, Founder at HarknessKennett

“Katie continues to be a driving force behind CIPR Inside, the sector group for internal communication professionals. She keeps us on track and through her hard work with the CIPR Inside awards and conferences, she has been a safe pair of hands to date, working diligently and creatively to ensure everything runs smoothly.  She’s got a great sense of humour too and is great fun to be around.”
Rachel Miller, Director at All Things IC – consulting, speaking and blogging on all things internal communication

“Katie has supported the CIPR Inside group with PR and comms work for the past few years. In my new role in 2013/14 we worked closely together to deliver comms and events on budget to engage our members and add more people to the group. She is a key member of the team and without her, so many things wouldn’t happen. She is instrumental in driving awareness of CIPR Inside and the growth in the numbers and the feedback on our events is testament to her hard work and communications knowledge. She is a real team player and someone I will continue to work with throughout my career.”
Jenni Wheller, Head of Internal Communication at SSP UK and Ireland

“Katie is an outstanding PR professional. She is very proactive, writes super copy and is utterly reliable. She managed the CIPR Inside Measurement Summit in June which generated excellent delegate feedback.”
Kevin Ruck, Chair, CIPRInside
“Katie helped put together an incredible event for the CIPR Inside Awards taking organisation to the another level. She was always quick to answer any questions we had and also kept all suppliers clued up with what was needed in good time. I also noticed on the day of the event, when stress is usually rife, Katie was as cool as cucumber. A hugely calming influence on us that’s for sure! Thank you Katie for your help and your professionalism”
Matthew Butler, Video Strategy Expert, Business Video Experts
“Katie’s work with CIPR Inside has added tremendous value. Highly proactive, always on the case, she really took the load and delivered logistics and PR for our recent summit in the most effective of ways. Her neat punchy summaries of what was happening provided reassurance; there were some nice touches we didn’t ask for that really added value. It was a 10/10 experience.”
Mark Applin, Treasurer CIPRInside

“Katie Marlow is a professional PR consultant who has a deep understanding of her industry. She combines real flair with a practical grasp of the details needed to make any campaign successful. She also has strong sense of how to build a story at the heart of any project and the writing skills to bring it to life. As well as traditional media channels, Katie has been working to help us develop our new internet strategy, particularly in the field of social media.”
Mike Leese, Your Brand In Motion

“Katie was a key player in helping me to set up Doris and Daisy. Although I only opened in September 2010, Katie quickly helped to establish my shop with a well thought out PR strategy that got me noticed by the type of women I needed as customers.”
Maria Leese, Doris and Daisy

“Extremely professional and well organised, Katie has a carefully planned and outcome focused approach to work, with a good perception of what is needed to achieve communications objectives. Well respected by senior officers and councillors, she worked well with our public, private and voluntary sector partners. Katie has knowledge of a range of communications areas. Katie has particular strengths in media relations, the creation of marketing materials and consultation. She is creative, reliable and committed to doing a good job.”
Sara Shepherd, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council

“I have worked with Katie on numerous projects, and she has consistently delivered a first class service, sharing her knowledge to the benefit of the business and our customers. She has boosted our business’s profile within our key trade press, sourcing and hosting one-to-one media opportunities as appropriate, as well as managing all of our day-to-day press relations. For wider marketing requirements, Katie always delivers professional copy that meets our needs and communications clearly to our broad and varied customer base. Her focus and project management is excellent, and she always goes out of her way to support the business both internally and externally.”
Angie Simpson, Hugh Symons

“Katie very quickly developed an extensive knowledge of all products and market sectors, whilst at the same time, built successful relationships with key media contacts, to effectively deliver robust and challenging PR plans. She was an excellent team player, working closely with the Head of Marketing to ensure maximum impact of all communication projects. Katie was never afraid to challenge at any level, if it made better business sense to do so, to deliver a stronger, commercial end result. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Katie’s PR skills, talent and experience.”
