Vicci is the sort of person who you can always rely upon to get the job done and to get it done well. She is enormously reliable, resourceful and versatile. She is a talented producer and writer, and a brilliant ‘people person’ with a real knack for finding stories and making things happen. I have worked with Vicci on some complex and challenging projects in recent years and I would have no hesitation in employing her again.  I would recommend her most highly.

Vicci is terrific at her job, with excellent ideas and the resourcefulness and initiative to follow them up. She is a great mix of efficiency and calmness under pressure, is a very good team player and a pleasure to work with.

Unicef

I’ve worked with Vicci on various campaigns over a number of years. When an opportunity came up for a freelancer at Unicef UK Vicci was the first person I wanted to bring in. She came in to run the consumer campaign for UNICEF’s winter campaign having to hit the ground running and develop content with very little background.  She is an outstanding PR who will always go above and beyond to deliver and remain calm and professional even in times of stress or challenging circumstances. Vicci is also very adept at developing strong relationships quickly and this certainly helped her in the role as well as making it a pleasure to have on the team.

Vicci is a fantastic addition to any media team – she has an infectious can-do attitude, an excellent news sense and is bursting with creative ideas. She seamlessly fitted into our team, quickly building relationships and delivering multiple fast-paced projects. I would love to work with her again in the future.

Having worked with vicci in the past mostly on The National Lottery Awards – what can I say… She’s totally professional very, very easy to work with, knows what she wants and I hope I delivered – what more can you ask for and she is a total delight – go Vicci go!

Vicci is a rare find – energetic, flexible, creative, sharp (in a good way) and brilliantly thorough. Would work with her again in a heartbeat.

RedNoseDay

Vicci was a critical member of the team that delivered the inaugural Red Nose Day event in the USA.  Although she came on board during the busiest part of the campaign, she quickly made herself utterly indispensable and impressed us with her intelligence, determination and versatility.  She is completely focused on getting the job done, but combines this with a rare charm which means everyone loves working with her.

I’ve worked with Vicci twice now and she is polite, organised and professional.  She certainly knows how to run a media event.  I give her SEVEN but really she deserves a 10!

National Lottery

Vicci has worked on the National Lottery Awards for several years now most recently as Head of Events. She delivered the NLAs 2014 at pinewood studios for over 300 people. As well as liaising with the BBC and celebrity publicist, Vicci also works closely with the in-house media team. She is a first-class event manager as well as a superb publicist. She is incredibly personable and always exceeds her KPIs.  Her interpersonal skills are wonderful, she gets along with everyone and fits right into the team without a ripple.  I often joke that Vicci can do anything she puts her mind to, and I do think it’s true!

Vicci joined us to help with planning our flagship awards event. She quickly grasped the brief and got to work producing exactly what we needed, as well as coming up with new suggestions which will really help make our event that extra bit special. She has a lot of experience to draw from, useful contacts and a professional, enthusiastic attitude. We would have liked her to have helped us further but someone else beat us to it!

Vicci worked for Bond on our Annual Conference and International Development Awards. This is a big and complex event, but Vicci was a huge asset, understood the brief perfectly, and was up and running and delivering within hours. She was hugely professional, incisive and helpful throughout, pitching stories to a variety of media channels with significant success. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Vicci again should the opportunity arise.

Vicci led a London 2012 legacy campaign highlighting volunteering. She selected and directed our PR Company and wrote a song which went on to receive over 30,000 YouTube hits and a total audience of over 20 million people. She oversaw all PR output for the campaign and produced a full analysis on completion of the project. And to top it all, she’s great fun to work with!

‘Vicci has a fantastic work ethic that enables her to hit the ground running and I found her sharp, insightful, highly productive and great fun to work with.  I was impressed at Vicci’s ability to connect with the heart of what we needed and identify the key moments and stories that would really bring this to life.  We had an incredibly ambitious project to deliver in a very tight timeframe and Vicci really stepped up to the mark and became one of the team.  I would have no hesitation in recommending her services and very much hope to work with Vicci again in future myself’

“Vicci provided some excellently practical and insightful planning and training for one of our clients. She got rapidly to the heart of the issues and was therefore able to dispense some very sound advice.”

Vicci has the ability to work out what you need and deliver it. She put together a well-researched PR strategy for our Loud Shirt Day campaign in a short timeframe and secured a freelance PR manager to drive it forward. She quickly got to grips with our charity’s work and enabled us to draw on her considerable professional knowledge and experience. It was a pleasure to work with her.

I’ve been fortunate to have Vicci’s support on two of my books and both times she delivered national and regional coverage, far exceeding my expectations. She knows how to create a media story and is a dab hand at writing articles, pitching ideas and getting results – usually in a very short space of time!

Vicci has worked on several campaigns at Comic Relief, most recently overseeing media for the 25th anniversary of Red Nose Day. Vicci came into this project half way through but picked up the work with the ease and confidence she has bought to all projects she’s worked on. Not only is she incredibly professional but her commitment to the job means she always delivers over and above targets. Vicci is a total pleasure to work with and even in the most stressful and busy times she keeps a cool head and remains calm and focused.  Vicci is an outstanding publicist and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
