What clients and the press say about Bridget Stott:
"I worked with Bridget for 6 months in 2019 to help bring more publicity to my company around the Cotswolds using Bridget's vast list of contacts within the media sector. She arranged numerous feature stories and profile pieces on myself and Cotswold Baking with the media and influential bloggers. Bridget is always full of energy and enthusiasm to help businesses reach their full potential."
Paul Barlow-Heal, Cotswold Baking Ltd
"Bridget worked on the PR for our new pub and my husband’s online art gallery for much of 2019 and we found her to be a real asset for both businesses from the get-go. As well as securing excellent coverage in both regional and national newspapers, relevant monthly publications and influential bloggers, she also set up live broadcasts on local radio, advised us on advertising partnerships and website listings and kept us up to date with media visits, feedback and coverage. Bridget also introduced us to a number of strategic partners. Enthusiastic, capable and experienced, Bridget did an all-round brilliant job for us."
Victoria and George Irvine, owners of The Crown at Church Enstone
"When we opened our second site we needed to get the word out quickly. Enter Bridget, who quickly arranged a line-up of influential reviewers and bloggers from in and around the area. These local reviews meant we could reach and engage with people within our catchment area who could actually visit the site while the national press and industry magazines coverage meant we were also able to stamp our presence on the larger food scene."
Hendrik Dutson-Steinfield, head chef and proprietor of 15 Queen Street, Maidenhead
"Working with Bridget from March - November 2018 has been both an absolute pleasure and a very astute business decision. Her energy and enthusiasm as well as her focus on bringing opportunities for prestigious publicity to bear have given us a huge amount of high quality visibility in the press and online. We would not hesitate to work with her again on future projects."
Catriona Galbraith, owner of The Greyhound. Letcombe Regis,
"From September to December 2017, Bridget worked on our pre-launch campaign, managed a launch party of 200 local businesses, associates and press and secured some excellent local coverage and reviews in key local press and two interviews on BBC Radio Oxford around the opening of Pizza Pilgrims at Oxford’s new Westgate Centre. Our first site outside London, and our biggest, we’ve had a really good reception and people seem to be loving it.
Bridget came highly recommended by the food and drink editor of the Oxford Times, and proved to be a very capable, skilled and experienced PR, who was also a real pleasure to work with."
Thom Eliott, founder, Pizza Pilgrims
"Bridget Stott is one of the most charismatic and fun people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. She has completed a number of freelance PR projects with Three Monkeys, including Lincolnshire Tourism, WRAP and Heyday. Her energy, enthusiasm, experience excellent writing skills and contacts, along with her critical journalistic eye make her an excellent addition to any lifestyle/consumer PR team. She’s not afraid to challenge and give honest advice to clients and colleagues, so she is a good manager of expectations. I would highly recommend Bridget for consumer PR projects and am happy to give verbal references if necessary."
Angie Moxham, founder, Three Monkeys PR and The Fourth Angel
"I have commissioned Bridget Stott over the past four years as an experienced travel journalist. In this time she has covered a wide range of travel/lifestyle related issues from family breaks abroad to unusual
holiday venues in the UK. I have always found her copy to be lively, informative, well researched and on time. Over the years she has also pitched many innovative and well-targeted ideas for this magazine and is always at hand to help talk through my initial ideas for features through to completion. When, and if we continue to feature travel within the magazine, Bridget is always first on my list of people to call".
Rachel Watson, former editor, Good Homes magazine.
"Bridget Stott has been working on and off with us at Turf to Table Ltd over a number of years to help us launch and establish our new venues. She has been instrumental in driving traffic to our sites and using her extensive contacts in the industry exposing us to many a publication far and wide from the Sunday broadsheets to glossy travel magazines to relevant e-marketing opportunities. At every turn she has accomplished this with the minimum of fuss, a great sense of fun and has worked very closely with us to make sure we have every base covered in managing expectations.
Whilst we have not finished our working relationship, currently she is working on other projects which no doubt she will manage with the same gusto!"
Sebastian Snow, head chef/owner The Five Alls, Filkins, The Plough, Kelmscott and The Bull, Fairford
"I would definitely say that as our PR, Bridget Stott has worked exceptionally fast to get the Nomada project in the news in a very professional way, despite the fact that dealing with a Chef may not be, at points of requesting info and feedback, the best thing in the world. I will always be indebted to Bridget and would recommend her, plus we are still in touch for future projects."
Ruben Leon-Acosta, Head Chef and Founder, Nomada Food.
"You have been invaluable in helping us to establish ourselves in the Cotswolds and I really appreciate what you have done. Thank you for everything!"
Tom Davies, Chief Executive, Brakspear
