Testimonials

Roger Taylor

Co-founder and Director of Research, Dr Foster Intelligence

We were delighted with the results of Journalista’s efforts on delivering both important stakeholder management and fantastic and prominent coverage of the Hospital Guide. Holly and her team were a pleasure to work with.

Dr Pete Thomond

Founder and Managing Director, Clever Together

It was Journalista’s relationship with HSJ that gave us the opportunity to demonstrate what we do and engage the audience we wanted to target. They demonstrated real creativity, openness and team working. I would be happy to recommend them.

David Poyser

Head of media, European Parliament

Journalista is fantastic – very very easy to work with. Totally un-pompous about what it does (unlike most people in PR) yet it knows how to achieve results in both Public Affairs (politics) and PR and will fight like cats to get it for you.

Dr Paul Hodgkin

CEO, Patient Opinion

At Patient Opinion we have used two previous consultancies to provide press and media advice. Both were helpful but in an unfocused and expensive way that did not deliver results.

Holly and Journalista have been different from the start. Clear and very experienced in our field (health), delivering on time and with good results in terms of agreed KPIs. Excellent value – and just as important Holly and her team are a delight to work with, people with whom clear communication both ways is valued and straightforward.

James Lorigan

Programme manager for sexual health and HIV, NHS Brent

Journalista provide high quality, professional communications advice and support. It has proven to be knowledgeable, enthusiastic and highly capable. With its help we have been able to dramatically improve the quality of the information that we are presenting to our residents.

Fiyaz Mughal OBE

Founder and director, Faith Matters

Journalista is a young organisation with enormous talent, it ‘gets’ our message around social cohesion and bringing people together. It has raised our profile significantly on issues of race, religion and identity.

Journalista were also key in supporting the Big Society drive that Faith Matters had which fitted with the Coalition Government’s agenda, yet allowing us to be seen as being independent to Government. Its work has supported the trust that communities have built with us.

Patrick Lowman

Senior media and communications manager, NHS Greenwich

I worked closely with Holly during my time at NHS Greenwich, where she played a pivotal role in raising the profile and enhancing the reputation of the organisation through planned and targeted media relations activities. She had an excellent eye for a story, strong writing skills and built trusted and respectful relationships with key journalists.

Journalista managed to secure regular positive publicity about the organisation, significantly raising its standing with key stakeholders, staff, patients and the public. On a personal basis I found Holly to be professional in her approach and a pleasure to work with.

Miriam Rivas-Aguilar

Director of Business & Operations, Patient Opinion

Journalista is clear in their strategy and successfully co-ordinate regional media coverage with the areas that our sales team is targeting to maximise the business return on all coverage.

Patient Opinion’s profile has increased immensely over the past seven months and we’ve seen a large increase in enquiries from NHS trusts as a result.
