Testimonial List

We engaged Sharon as part of preparation for media interviews. We had real and thought provoking benefit as a result of the thorough preparation Sharon had carried out before our training, and from her extensive experience as a professional interviewer and presenter. I would recommend her to anyone thinking of doing Media training.
David Williamson, Director of ATASS Ltd.
Sharon has been very effective in promoting the Choir and her excellent press releases have resulted in coverage in high profile local publications and on the radio. Our audience numbers have certainly improved with the extra exposure. Through her excellent business and media contacts, Sharon has also helped us enormously in seeking sponsorship for concerts. Her manner is calm, friendly and straightforward and she is efficient in following up any potential leads. We are very grateful to Sharon for making a difference for us.
Chris Burns, Exeter Philharmonic Choir
I would highly recommend Sharon and If Media for video production. We're delighted with the final results and Sharon was incredibly supportive throughout the process. The questioning and editing has ensured the key messages we wanted to convey come across loud and clear.
Lorna Turner, The Fruit Tree for Business
As an Oxford University department, we had a very specific brief: we wanted training to enable high-level academics to deal with media enquiries calmly and confidently. The participants were universal in their praise of the training – they particularly liked the opportunity to practice interview technique in a 'safe' environment that allowed them to improve their performance. Several participants have since been able to use their newly-honed skills and have commented on how much more confident they now feel in dealing with the media. We would heartily recommend If Media to any similar organisation looking for high-quality media training.
Kiri Walden, Communications Officer, Oxford University Department of Computer Science
Thank you for your highly professional PR work on behalf of myself and the charity over the last ten months. We really benefitted from your impressive network of contacts in TV, radio, the Press and social media and from your remarkable powers of persuasion over all sorts of people in sometimes challenging circumstances! Above all, your straightforward competence and reliability made you an ideal partner in our project.
Michael Woodcock (fundraiser for the Exmoor Pony Centre)
We were looking for someone who could produce effective and engaging videos for our NHS Trust, and we were delighted with Sharon’s work. She is a highly effective media professional who understood our needs exactly. I did not have to micro-manage the project as I felt confident that Sharon would have everything in hand. The result was a professional, interesting and engaging film, which has been a real hit within the organisation.
Helen Hartstein, Senior Marketing and Communications Manager, Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust
I spent a long time trying to put what I do for a living down in words. In the end I gave up. I sent pages of notes to Sharon and she turned it into something I was really pleased with. She captured what I was trying to say, in the way I wanted it said; in a way I was comfortable with. My website is up now. It wouldn't be without Sharon's contribution. Thank you Sharon. I'll be back if I'm lost for words again in the future!
Loraine Kennedy, Education & ELT Consultant
Sharon is a great listener! She is First Prize in the draw! She instills confidence by handling a wide range of subjects with creativity, calmness, knowledge and careful thinking. Sharon helped us develop a media campaign while remaining considerate of the costs, time constraints and a difficult subject, and managed to introduce exciting new ideas. She made sure that the campaign reflected our values, was delivered on time and kept in budget. What more can a customer want?
Elizabeth Graveley, Director, Activage Expo
Sharon and her team created a superb piece of film for our wedding venue. From concept to completion, her advice, attention to detail and total flexibility were second to none. I have no hesitation in recommending Sharon to make your video. Thanks, Sharon!
Mark Godfrey, Managing Director, Deer Park Hotel
Teapot Creative has worked with If...Media on several collaborative projects and we have recommended Sharon to many of our clients. Sharon brings style and pazzaz to each piece of copy she creates. Her writing is varied and can be witty and crisp or factual and informative. Whatever the tone of voice we have needed, Sharon has been able to deliver it under the stresses of our tight deadlines. If Media has provided us also with fabulous video clips for websites and adverts. They have been of the highest quality filming and Sharon is a natural in front of the camera. We look forward to working with her more in the future!
Lizzie Ginbey, Director, Teapot Creative.
Sharon did an amazing job on my website copy. Initially I couldn't bear reading what I'd tried to write about myself, but now it's actually a pleasure... Without the right copy it felt like having an evening ruined by going out in the wrong clothes. Sharon managed to capture not just what I do, but who I am and gave me my "voice".
Polly Bateman, Wellbeing Mentor, Advisor & Consultant
Sharon co-ordinated and managed all the copywriting for our website. Working with If… Media was easy, efficient and effective. Sharon is working with us on a number of other projects and I am delighted with the results - she listens, takes a brief, is creative and produces excellent results.
Bridget Jennings, JB Promotions PR & Event Management
I have worked with Sharon a number of times and have always been impressed with her ability to quickly understand our diverse business as well as the specific brief we are working with. Using her skills and experience she is able to advise on how to maximise the impact of short films and then turns them into reality that delivers exactly what we are looking for. I would not hesitate to recommend Sharon’s work, whether it be undertaking media interviews or producing short films that really hit the mark.
Dave Britton, Head of News & Social Media, The Met Office
Sharon was involved with the making of a DVD on oral health for 0-5 year olds. Sharon is a true professional in her work, from her flawless and natural delivery of memorised material, to compiling the narrative, to punctuality. Sharon was recommended to us and I was impressed by her attitude. Nothing was too much trouble and when the unexpected happened (which it does when you are working with children), she carried on and used the situation to portray what needed to be presented.
Colin Flanagan, NHS Lead in Oral Health Promotion, Devon
I needed a number of projects proofed and re-written and Sharon was just fantastic. Every tight deadline was met, the standard and quality of the work was excellent and, on top of all this, I really enjoyed working with Sharon . Excellent work and personable service.
Sarah Cressall, The Creation Station/Create Club
Sharon coordinated and directed a promotional film for St. James School in Exeter. This was an exceptional piece of work which was used to launch the school as a trust. It was well received by the business community, governors and the Local Authority. We were also able to use the film in our feeder primary schools. As a tool to promote the school, this film was crucial.
Helen Salmon, Headteacher
A BIG thank you for getting Judith Mackrell to see Desert Crossings at the Marine Theatre, which resulted in our much appreciated Guardian 4 star Review!
