Phiness PR Testimonials 

What Clients Say | What Editors Say | What Analysts Say

“I often look at things you wrote and think ‘why couldn’t I put it like that?’, that’s the value you bring. I’m a cyber security expert, you’re able to translate techno-babble into English and explain the business benefits.”
Andrew Gilhooley, PCIP, QSA, CISM and founder of One Compliance Cyber Ltd.

“Josie’s ability to learn about our business; engage with company spokespeople; identify editorial opportunities and deliver copy to tight deadlines, played a significant role in helping RandomStorm to build relationships with key journalists.  Our regular appearances in the security and business press helped to substantially raise the profile of RandomStorm and maintained awareness with our target audience. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Josie to other entrepreneurs.” 
Andrew Mason, co-founder and technical director of RandomStorm, acquired by Accumuli Security 19th December 2014.

“We were very happy with the way that Josie handled our acquisition announcement. Her knowledge of the technology journalists and analysts enabled her to contact exactly the right people, within an extremely tight timeframe. Josie was keen to be allowed to speak to the journalists and analysts, as a matter of courtesy, since they had been covering our company since launch. This personal touch generated much more positive coverage of the deal than we could have achieved if we had simply left people to pick up the news on the wire. In addition, she was also able to identify the business story and how this could be relayed to other entrepreneurs to guide them on their exit strategy planning. I would not hesitate to recommend Josie to other technology companies.” 
Ed Macnair, technology entrepreneur

“What a fabulous morning and thank you for all of your hard work that has gone into everything. I showed the children your press release on Friday afternoon and they loved reading it. They have now started to write up their own.”  
Sarah Stephens, Year 5 ICT Co-ordinator, Bishopswood Junior School, winner of the Norman eSafety competition.

“We first contacted Josie on the 19th December 2010, to request a whitepaper addressing the need for device control in the education sector. By 23rd December we had the draft ready for approval, giving us plenty of time to review and approve the paper in time for the BETT show in January 2011. Norman Data Defense UK has subsequently commissioned Phiness PR to draft a number of positioning documents. We have been very impressed with both the speed of turnaround and the quality of the copy delivered and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Phiness.”
Nicola Case, Internal Sales and Marketing Communications Manager, Norman Data Defense Systems (UK) Ltd. 

“I have rarely worked with a PR professional with such energy, commitment and genuine curiosity as Josie.  She uses her charm and wit to secure journalist interviews, and drives outcomes in a timely manner.”  
Mike Fuller, Director of Marketing, InterSystems 

“During my time at SecureWave I got to know Josie Pearson as a public relations professional who goes the extra mile to generate storylines and coverage.  In particular, her efforts to create a rapport with our customers and understand their business issues made a major contribution to our customer referrals program in the UK market. I would not hesitate to recommend Josie”. 
Dennis Szerszen, former Senior Vice President Marketing and Corporate Development at SecureWave

“Josie Pearson is one of the most talented and driven PR professionals I’ve worked with. She is a lightening-quick study, making it a point to understand our business and apply strategic and highly creative thinking to our PR initiatives. Josie is a great writer, a consummate professional, and totally committed to delivering results. She has great relationships with media and analysts and did a fantastic job organising media tours, landing top-tier coverage, and generally raising the profile of our company in the UK. It was a pleasure working with Josie and I would not hesitate to hire her again.”
