PR Testimonials

At Capital B Media, we enjoy working with a wide range of clients, including professionals with expertise in many different fields; charities and social enterprises; public bodies and business support organisations, event organisers, artists and entrepreneurs. Here is what some of our PR clients have had to say about working with us:

Barnsley Museums

Capital B Media worked with Barnsley Museums to launch a national PR campaign to find a miller for the 17th century Worsbrough Mill and Country Park. Lynn Dunning, head of museums and heritage for Barnsley Metropolitan Council, said: “We were extremely pleased with the response for such a specialist job role. The campaign by Capital B Media helped us reach people who wouldn’t have heard of us otherwise, and the knock-on effects to visitor numbers to the museum and country park, and online visits to the website has been amazing.”

Dearne Valley Landscape Partnership

“Capital B Media was instrumental in helping us promote the DVLP’s work around the 50th anniversary of A Kestrel for a Knave, securing coverage for us on BBC Look North and a live piece on BBC Radio Sheffield, as well as print and online coverage. We definitely raised awareness of the anniversary and it was rewarding to hear how special the book is to so many people.” - Richard King - landscape partnership development manager 

Future Life Wealth Management

"Capital B Media are refreshingly different. They observed where we wanted to take the business and formulated a plan on how to achieve it. As well as traditional PR, I have learned that having a social media presence and visual content, particularly video, is so important. The team filmed several short videos of me and my staff which created a flurry of Twitter activity – and led to positive leads for my business.” - Jillian Thomas - managing director

Enterprising Barnsley

“Kate and her team have been instrumental in raising the profile of the Enterprising Barnsley programme locally, regionally and nationally. They have 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. They understand the needs of PR and approach our relationship as a partnership, working together to get the best possible article. I couldn't recommend them highly enough” - Martin Beasley - programme manager

Magna Science Adventure Centre

“Knowing that Capital B Media are passionate about us at Magna and our mission builds the best kind of confidence. 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

Leeds LEP Skills Service

"I would highly recommend Capital B Media. We worked with them to produce a number of written and video case studies to show the impact of our LEP skills service. Kate and the team had a strong understanding of the business support landscape and we were able to receive a variety of case studies to showcase the different types of businesses we have supported.  We have been able to use the content  in a number of ways and through a variety of marketing channels." - Eleanor Guthrie - marketing and communications officer

Folio Albums

"Working with us to create new copy for our website and blog, Kate and the team have continually demonstrated an ability to get to the core of the subject quickly, delivering copy in a tone and manner which is tailored perfectly to the voice of Folio Albums. We have been impressed by the speed at which they get to the nub of a brief and their skilfulness in understanding the technical aspects of our products, presenting them in a softer syle more suited to our needs. They are a joy to work with!" - Julie Randall - director

Provide Education

“We have worked with the team at Capital B Media for two years now and their PR support has been an integral part of our business growth strategy. They are always extremely helpful and proactive. And their expertise has raised our profile right across the region in which we operate, as well as boosting our reputation nationally through the recruitment and education media.” - Barry Simmons - Director and co-founder


“Kate and her team know PR and media inside and out, and 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. Their expertise,advice and honesty have been essential to our marketing success” - Lucy Tointon - marketing and sales executive

Barnsley Hospice

"Kate and her team immediately understood what we wanted to achieve and married their extensive experience to our objectives. Press releases encouraging the local community to donate their unwanted goods saw the donation shed full to bursting point. And when we’ve wanted more volunteers, that’s what we’ve ended up with! Capital B Media also delivered bespoke training on radio interviews.They are a delight to work with and I’d have no hesitations in recommending them" - Laura Conrad - marketing officer

Underneath the Stars

“It was great to work with the team at Capital B Media to promote Underneath the Stars. They worked closely with us - and our hosts at Cannon Hall Farm - to understand what was important to us about our family-run, family-friendly music festival  based in the beautiful countryside of South Yorkshire. They came up with a range of innovative ways to raise the profile of our event and get our story covered widely in the media.” - Emma Holling - festival director

Acorn Brewery

“Capital B Media has raised our profile by securing us more positive media coverage than we have ever had, including a full-colour spread in Yorkshire Life magazine and articles in beer industry media too. Our social media has never been so active, with comments on news stories and so on. We’re a small, busy business and I’m often in my wellies brewing beer – so it’s great to have quick phone calls with Steph and the team and then receive drafts of releases and features for my comment and approval.” - Dave Hughes - owner

Cannon Hall Farm

"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


“As a new supplier to the education sector it's important to raise our profile and communicate our commitment to designing and delivering unique products which support robust creative learning. Capital B Media have taken time to understand our business ethos and talk to staff and teachers. Their PR expertise has gained us sustained positive coverage in both regional and specialist media, plus engaging content for our website and social media channels too.” - Julia McInally - business development manager

MB Toyfairs

“I decided to try PR after spending thousands on advertising. The first press release led to being on BBC Look North and mentions in national press. They secured interviews as a toy “expert” on local radio, and they made a short film, which they succeeded on getting posted on several newspaper websites.The result: a big increase in the number of visitors to the fair.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

Lincoln Finance

“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” - Jason Lincoln – director
