I have worked with Bryony at Pie Factory Music since October 2020. Bryony helped us to design and deliver a successful Crowdfunding campaign during one of our most challenging years. She was a delight to work with, both in her manner with all members of our team and also her expertise and experience. She was reliable, supportive and ultimately helped us to raise funds at a vital time. Bryony tailored her approach around our strengths as an organisation and offered smart, achievable solutions in areas where we are less experienced. I was also extremely impressed with Bryony’s commitment to developing young people and empowering them to have a stake in our comms. As the leader of a charity during COVID-19, I personally found Bryony’s support to be a lifeline.
Steph Dickinson, Managing Director Pie Factory Music
Bryony really understands what we are trying to achieve as a business as well as charity. She has helped us to understand the make-up of our audiences and raise our profile in a more targeted way. Since Covid-19, I would call Bryony our 5th emergency service, enabling us to reach our customers, clients, local contacts and communities quickly, responding in a calm and focussed way. She is a highly skilled marketer, understands all aspects of communications – that kind of one-stop-shop and talented copywriting skills at such a professional level is very hard to come by. Bryony is kind, smart and collaborative, bringing ideas to us all the time, and thinking of new ways of working to help us increase our brand awareness and reach new audiences. We highly recommend her.

“I just can’t recommend Bryony enough for your comms needs. She is brilliant to work with, flexible, upbeat, dynamic and knows how to work around the day-to-day pressures small to medium-sized charities have. She does incredible work for Oasis Domestic Abuse Service and my other passion www.social-led.org.uk. It is a very reasonable and well worth the investment.”
Deb Cartwright, CEO Oasis Domestic Abuse Service
Bryony is creative, proactive, and always looking for ways to develop and improve campaigns. She is also incredibly thorough, excellent at reporting and demonstrating ROI. Bryony is skilled at managing multiple stakeholders and dealing with complex projects. She is a wonderful team player and always positive and supportive. I would highly recommend Bryony and hope we can work together again soon.

Bryony’s work has been a real asset to our service, helping us to improve our social media results and remain focused on our objectives. Her practical experience, knowledge and marketing skills and second to none – she delivers to an exceptional level, on both a practical and strategic level and nothing is too much trouble. Bryony keeps herself up-to-date with current news and trends in the tourism and arts sector. I and the team have found Bryony’s work ethic and constant enthusiasm infectious, which has had a positive impact on our delivery. Her creative, bubbly nature is a joy to have as part of a team.
Paula Harbidge, Tourism Manager Visit Thanet
We commissioned Bryony to produce a blog for our local cycle route, the Viking Coastal Trail and we are thrilled with the high standard of work and creativity delivered. The copy is informative and engaging; delivered in a way that enables us to use it as one piece or several smaller pieces, but also woven in are additional bits of information and links to further engage the reader, suggesting additional reasons to visit.
In true Bryony style, she also did her research, cycling the 32-mile route so she could speak from experience. An added bonus for us was the lovely pictures taken on route, which we are able to use in our promotional activities.
We would not hesitate to recommend Bryony, her work for us has always been outstanding. We look forward to working with her again in the future.
You really couldn’t ask for a better mentor than Bryony – her knowledge and experience has been invaluable to me, from my first year of line management to now. Her enthusiasm is infectious and because of her encouragement, I’m now thinking more strategically about my professional goals. Bryony has been, and continues to be, a fantastic mentor to me and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
Poppy Andrews, Communications Manager Imperial War Museum
If you work in arts/heritage marketing and you’re looking for a mentor, it’s unlikely you’ll find someone better than Bryony. She’s personable and friendly and easy to open up to, but also focused and knowledgeable and you have an awful lot to gain from her. Her resources and follow up notes are incredibly helpful and our sessions have helped me change my perspective and focus on my career goals.
Rhianna, Arts Marketing Association Mentee
Bryony has been very helpful in our mentoring sessions. She handles personal information in a professional way and is a positive influence, allowing one to open up without judgement. The follow up information after each session demonstrates that she is invested in her mentees.
Hannah, Arts Marketing Association mentee
I enjoyed every session with Bryony. She was a great listener and suggested practical tips and guidance that enabled me to achieve my goals
