“Kate and her team have been instrumental in raising the profile of the Enterprising Barnsley programme
locally, regionally and nationally. She has a real eye for stories that have appealed to editors and readers alike which has resulted in widespread coverage for Barnsley companies and the programme. From a professional point of view, she understands the needs of PR, approaching our relationship as a partnership, working together to get the best possible article. I couldn't recommend her highly enough”
Martin Beasley - programme manager
“Knowing that Kate and her team at Capital B Media are passionate about us at Magna and our mission builds the best kind of confidence. The confidence I share with the team at Capital B Media means that I never have to doubt that they have our best interests at heart. And I can trust that their enthusiasm and sincere faith in our steel heritage and our commitment to science education and our corporate services comes through in every interaction they have with the media on our behalf. And best of all since we started working with them our visitor numbers are up!”
Karen Staniforth – marketing manager
"An initial taster session on “how to get free publicity in the media” created a formidable partnership which has seen the hospice
expand its media exposure significantly. Kate and her team immediately understood what we wanted to achieve as an organisation and married their extensive experience to our objectives. Press releases encouraging the local community to donate their unwanted goods have seen the donation shed full to bursting point. And, when we’ve wanted more volunteers in a specific area, that’s what we’ve ended up with! Capital B Media have also delivered bespoke training on radio interviews, which have given a broad range of people a good understanding of how the media works and what to expect. Kate and her team are a delight to work with and I’d have no hesitations in recommending them"
Laura Conrad - policy and marketing officer
“I have worked with Kate and her team for over a year. They know PR and media inside and out, which has been crucial to positioning our products and services to potential customers. They have been an essential addition to our team, creating brand and product awareness to key sectors within the lone worker market. They helped us successfully launch one of our new products, gaining coverage in key trade publications, achieving brand awareness, a large number of enquiries and new contracts signed. They have also created a number of press releases targeting local, regional and trade press with eye catching stories which have ALWAYS been placed in publications. Their expertise,advice and honesty have been essential to our marketing success”

"We have used Capital B Media twice, both times with fantastic success. They have achieved a great response resulting in articles in the Yorkshire Post, an appearance on Look North and an interview on BBC Radio Sheffield. Without doubt they managed to reach places that we could not. In addition to this both articles more than doubled our internet traffic so I can wholeheartedly recommend their services to anyone"
Robert Nicholson – managing director
“I decided to give PR a go after spending thousands on advertising my regular toyfairs at Doncaster Racecourse. Kate and her team got me on BBC Look North and mentions in the national press with the first press release. Their contacts then gave me the opportunity to be featured as a toy “expert” on local radio. The result: an increase in the number of visitors to the fair, with people queuing around the block to get in. But Capital B Media also come up less traditional ways of getting publicity; their next approach was to make a short film about a toyfair, which they succeeded on getting posted on several newspaper websites. We are now revamping my social media presence and using audio news releases. Their approach is impressive; they look for solutions and come up with some innovative ideas. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough."
Michael Bishop - organiser
“Having originally attended one of Kate’s PR seminars back in early 2010, I was immediately struck by her infectious enthusiasm
and extensive knowledge of the media industry. After an exploratory meeting in which Kate spent valuable time piecing together an understanding of our business, we engaged Capital B Media's PR services and are thrilled to say that we have been successful in getting a number of articles to print. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Capital B Media's work”
