Helen Alice,
Breast Cancer Support Tauranga

“Laura has a natural ability to fit into our team culture and effortlessly form relationships with key business stakeholders. Her work is always top quality, and she’s always efficient, professional and friendly. Nothing is ever a problem – even when we throw things at her at the last minute like we often do! She’s always keen to take on a challenge and does so with a smile on her face, which is very refreshing.”


“Laura is a sensation to work with and the utter most asset to the Ora team. Sitting alongside some of her interviews, I’ve seen her natural ability to immediately develop a rapport with interviewees, allowing them to relax and positively engage. She captures the vision of every brand and business perfectly, and transcribes that vision meaningfully, beautifully, and concisely on to paper. Her eye for detail is remarkable, and it’s evident throughout her work (which is always top quality). I can’t put into words how wonderful she really is!”


“Laura understood the ethos of our organisation and the image we wanted to create for the inaugural Nude Dude Swim fundraiser. She secured key sponsors, developed fantastic press releases and implemented a very effective media campaign for the event which secured lots of great coverage. She also drove our social media strategy, establishing an Instagram presence and engaging influencers to help us spread the word about our fundraiser and get the community excited. Laura brought her lovely personality, energy and skill to this campaign - we highly recommend her!”

“The marketing team at Classic Group feel very fortunate to have stumbled across Laura who’s not only a real talent of her trade, but is also so nice to work with! Laura’s fresh perspective on your business means the briefing process is easy. She asks all the questions, filling in all the holes you didn’t realise were there. She’s comfortable writing in different tones and trying the new approaches we are keen to explore, and when the job is complete, she always makes sure you’re 100% happy. Laura runs a tight ship too, which I love as she has no problem chasing me to ensure that she hits the deadline I’ve set! We have plenty more projects in the wings for Laura - we see this partnership as a long-term one.”


"I engaged Laura in 2018 and have been totally blown away by how amazing she is! She writes my articles, newsletters and social copy (and anything else I send her) and I can honestly say I’ve never found an error in any of her work. She totally gets what I’m after, even on the smallest of briefs, and I can fully rely on her to get it done without any chasing! She’s one of a kind and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who needs her services. Thanks Laura, you’ve made my incredibly busy workload all the more manageable!"

Jessica Jellie, Classic Builders Regional Marketing Manager

“It was wonderful to give Laura pages of unfinished sentences and bullet points, and receive in return eloquent paragraphs that not only captured my vision but added to it with beauty and insight. Laura’s carefully crafted words give me pride in my brand and confidence in telling my story through all customer touch points."

 

“Wow. These radio scripts are sooooo good Laura! Sitting here reading them over and over smiling like a dork – you’ve nailed it. The old man one is my FAVE but I love them ALL!! I’m going to send these straight in to be recorded so we can get them on air. I can’t see anything to change – they’re wicked as is. I’m going to roll these ads out in other regions, too - so what started as a regional campaign has just gone national. That says it all! Thank you so SO so much  – can’t speak highly enough of you.”
