  1. "Nicola's features are always incisive, thoroughly sourced and full of important insights. She always delivers on time and to the brief, with little editing required." Michael Barnett, Strategies Editor, Marketing Week

"Nicola contributed many interviews and features for the official Olympic and Paralympic Games daily programmes. She did so to a very high standard, providing exactly what we needed and when we needed it. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again on future projects." David Edwards, Editor, Haymarket Media Group.

"Nicola has pitched me a number of interesting and original feature ideas which I've then commissioned her to write. The finished articles have been exactly as commissioned, of high quality and, importantly, delivered on time!" Rob Spedding, Editor, Cycling Plus.

"I have worked with Nicola for many years, both on Marketing Week and Natural Grocery Buyer. She's a brilliant freelancer - always files on time, and produces concise, engaging copy that requires little editing. It's always a pleasure to work with Nicola." Jo Roberts, Head of Education (Circus Street)

"Nicola is without doubt one of the best freelancers I have ever worked with. Copy is always impeccable, the sources spoken to of very high quantity and work is always delivered before deadline. A pleasure to work with." Justin Pearse, Editor, New Media Age.

"Nicola is a trusted writer for Countryfile magazine and turns in copy that is both entertaining and informative." Fergus Collins, Editor, BBC Countryfile.

"Nicola has a rare combination of strategic clarity, energetic and proactive management, and attention to detail. The result is that she gets things done, and get them done well. She is also a pleasure to work with - which is a huge bonus!" Phil Gendall, Branding Consultant, Ambitious Brands.

"I have to confess Nicola sought out New Media Age, rather than the other way around, but I'm certainly glad she did, as she has become a highly valued member of our team of trusted freelancers here. Tackling often arcane subjects, she consistently turns in crisp, engaging copy, files on time and demonstrates a tenacity in reaching quotable people that puts others to shame. What's more she cares and while she clearly and deservedly takes professional pride in what she does, she is never precious and always a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended." Nic Howell, former Features Editor, New Media Age.

"Nicola has been editing our magazine for quite a number of years now. She is easy to work with and always pulls things together for me, so I know I don't have to worry! She cares about what she does and produces high class, excellent copy," Tracy Nolan, Editor in Chief, Graduate Recruiter (Association of Graduate Recruiters).

"Nicola worked for us as a freelance writer for many months, creating well-researched, SEO-driven content for our B2B company blog. Having worked very closely with her during this time, I always found her work ethic to be on point. She never once missed a deadline and consistently produced high-quality articles to brief that got results. I would highly recommend Nicola as a professional writer with a wide variety of writing styles and capabilities, especially in the field of marketing." Lorna Keane, Senior Content Manager (GlobalWebIndex)
