WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US

Top testimonials

After our last APDO conference on 20 May 2021, I was so impressed with Write on Time’s approach that by 21 May, I received my confirmation of my PR Power Hour  booking with Michelle and Christian.

They both gave some great pointers, great advice and positive vibes that ‘I can do this’. I was so encouraged! 

I have since ‘appeared’ on three different radio stations for interview (some more than once), and on an Australian podcast as a guest. I have also had articles written by me and about me in local newspapers, homes magazines and lifestyle publications.

This has all contributed to the award I won earlier this year, South of England ‘Professional Organiser of the Year 2021/2022’ from Prestige Awards.

I wouldn’t have had the courage to do this without their positivity and enthusiasm. What also greatly helped was the 100 and 150-word bios that I also engaged them to write for me.

Michelle and Christian showed genuine interest in me, my history and my career – getting every last detail to boil down succinctly into something cohesive I could use.

I highly recommend investing in yourself and your business in this way. You can do it too!

Whilst Ingrid Jansen and I enjoyed media and online success in the UK before, promoting The Declutter Hub in a global market was brand-new territory for us.

In a PR Power Hour, Christian and Michelle taught us how to change the tone of our PR and capitalise on our expertise in a way we hadn’t explored before… 60 minutes of fantastic takeaways!

If you want straight-talking, no-nonsense expert PR advice, these two lovely people are just the ticket.

Well, both of my stories made it into the local press today!

I’ve simply followed all of the advice – trusting the process devised by Michelle and Christian. I’ve listened to feedback and learned.

Michelle and Christian are great at getting a story out of anyone and then presenting it to the press in a way they can’t resist.

Lynn Parnell
Founder of Logistics Partners Consultancy

Michelle and Christian were speakers at a networking event, and I have to say that they were some of the best speakers I have had the pleasure of listening to. They were amazing! They both took interest in each and every one of our businesses and took us through step by step of how to get in the press.  I highly recommend them both! Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

EasyTots has had the pleasure of working with Michelle and Christian on a number of projects. Award writing is an important thing to get right. We were so happy with how our award entry was put together. Write on Time delivered a compelling, professional and engaging entry, and I’m sure that contributed towards our award success.

Helen Davies
Founder of EasyTots

Michelle and Christian worked for Duvalay for several years – helping with award entries to gain not only recognition within our own industry, but wider afield amongst the general business community.

They quickly grasped what the core and heartbeat of our family business was and articulated this so well in the entries they submitted. We had a very high success rate. This proved beneficial to us in many ways and was some reward for the hard work we had put in over the years.

Liz Colleran
Sales & Marketing Director at Duvalay

I would never be a multi-award-winning entrepreneur without Michelle and Christian. An entrepreneur maybe, but never award-winning.

The application is where the magic happens and where you can absolutely nail it or get it hopelessly wrong – even if you deserve to win. This is because the judges are sifting through so many entries… They are looking out for certain key pieces of information and that’s where taking expert advice on this process comes in.

Michelle and Christian know exactly what judges are looking for in relation to the specific award you are entering; that’s the magic.

They are my secret weapon, which has led me to complete an awards hat trick (the Enterprise Vision Awards 2019, the FSB Awards 2020 and the Single Mums Business Network Awards 2020).

Michelle and Christian spoke at a Bolton MIBA meeting recently. I followed their advice and a week later I had a story published in my local paper. Thank you so much both of you. What can I say? What you’re doing works!

MEET OUR TEAM

The people who make it all happen

Michelle Ewen

Michelle Ewen

Creative Ideas Engine

Over the past 20 years, I have generated more than £1m worth of free publicity and written every kind of winning award entry – including an MBE.

Having graduated with First Class Honours in Journalism & Script Writing, I worked for the national press – exposing love rats and scandals in The Mirror, The People, Chat, Take a Break and many more true-life magazines!

Aged 25, I then became Commercial Features Editor for Guardian Series Newspapers – specialising in persuasive copywriting for businesses.

Later, as Public Relations Specialist at an NHS Trust, I recruited Stephen Fry to front our ‘Stamp Out Stigma’ campaign; advised the Board; and empowered patients to share their lived experience of mental health with the media.

Key Skill: Writing kickass press releases!

Christian Ewen

Christian Ewen

Pitching & Proofing King

Aged 25, I broke the record for the youngest ever Press Officer at the FTSE100 company that hired me as an official spokesperson. I wrote press statements for Sky News and the BBC; delivered award-winning PR campaigns; and regularly secured broadcast and print coverage worth six-figure sums in equivalent advertising value.

I originally started out as a Commercial Features Reporter for Guardian Series Newspapers – writing advertorials and lifestyle features – after studying Journalism at LJMU.

Later, I worked as a Publisher for five years at one of the world’s leading non-fiction military history publishing houses in the English language. I took a project management role – proofreading and copy-editing manuscripts to prepare them for publication.

Key Skill: Adding that final touch of class to everything we produce.

Raymond Reddington

Raymond Reddington

Company Secretary

I was found wandering on the streets of Rochdale and then transferred to Warrington Cats Protection Adoption Centre. After a Method acting performance worthy of Brando, I conned my parents into choosing me at the shelter. Named after a fictional criminal mastermind on Sky TV’s The Blacklist, I now only show affection on my own terms – and mostly when motivated by food!

As Company Secretary, my key responsibilities include making unscheduled appearances on Zoom calls; walking across keyboards at inopportune moments; posing for social media; and eating up the company profits in snacks.

In my spare time I like to defend my precious territory and ignore all my expensive toys. 

Key Skill: Mediating when my parents have ‘creative differences’.
