Collaborating with Ellie on Rebel Boob was an incredible boost for my theatre company. Ellie handled all aspects of the PR, social media and outreach to charities and organisations, raising our profile and making sure the right people heard about our work; which in turn led to interviews and articles in newspapers and magazines. It was a joy to work alongside her, as she is a trustworthy and reliable professional, and I really appreciated her listening to the values and ethos which are important to my company, and combining all this information together to create a comprehensive and organised process for us to apply. The positive impact of her involvement was present in the success of the production!
