Our clients and the media say
”Vikki Rimmer has worked magic for her clients, achieving results even they hadn’t expected”
Editor PR Week
“We’ve worked with Vikki for 5 years , and in that time she has become an integral member of our marketing team. Vikki quickly grasped the nature of our work, the culture of the firm and the way in which we present ourselves to gain the maximum effect. Her writing skills and bank of press contacts give us the ability to get timely, noteworthy material out to just the right places and she has a commercial view on getting the most out of our PR spend and resource. I value Vikki’s advice on PR and take great account of her views when deciding on our approach to all such matters.”
Managing Partner, McBrides Chartered Accountants
“Vikki was an extraordinary find and provided so much more than just great PR. She consistently worked far above and beyond her defined role, and her dedication and support for our work was outstanding and awe inspiring. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
“Dull, formulaic, predictable, unimaginative, unoriginal, dishonest. As a publicist, a PR and an individual, Vikki is the antithesis of all of these things.”
Journalist & owner of MarxMedia
“Vikki has helped with our event publicity for several years. This has been a great benefit and helped to make our Soft Landscape Workshop a success within the Landscape industry. Her journalist skills for holding interviews and writing them as well as an after event report have been excellent. That’s why I keep hiring her each year to help.”
Soft Landscape Workshop
“Vikki is a ground breaking cracker – The World Garden of Plants, as a whole, simply wouldn’t be where it is today!”
Tom Hart Dyke
Lullingstone Castle – The World Garden
“Alongside her creative streak lies an equally broad diligent streak, she is both straightforward and good fun to talk to.”
“I have sat on many a BBC sofa this year to discuss our Society’s aims and I feel that these appearances have initiated a sea change for the Society.”
Former Chair of The Spelling Society
