Testimonials

Writing

Clifton Wilkinson, Destination Editor Lonely Planet:

“Belinda has written for Lonely Planet for seven years, during which time she has produced top-quality writing and proven herself to be one of the most enthusiastic and conscientious authors on our books. Over this period she has worked on many guides, including Great Britain and England, and other projects, including special one-offs on UK university cities. Her determination to find the best hotel/restaurant/view etc means that her research skills are second to none, while her writing is always of the highest standard, easily combining useful information with an entertaining, engaging writing style to convey an authentic sense of a place. She co-wrote our Devon & Cornwall guide from scratch, demonstrating her expert knowledge of this region of the UK, and her skills and willingness to adapt and develop are such that when asked to come in at the last minute on our Italian Lakes and Ireland’s Best Trips guides, she not only jumped at the chance but produced content of exceptionally high standard.”

Lynnette Crisp, Head of Marketing, Visit Kent:

“We engaged Belinda to write the copy for the new Visit Kent website, which went live in April 2013. Responding to a very specific brief, Belinda supplied wonderfully inspirational copy across a series of themes – all with the aim of motivating readers to visit Kent. She has the unique skill of writing concisely whilst still selling our destination in an evocative way. She took time to develop a full understanding of the brief and our county before undertaking the project and delivered the finished copy to deadline. I would not hesitate to recommend Belinda for future projects.”

Sarah Barber, Tourism, Heritage and Nature Conservation Manager, Ashford Borough Council:

“It was a pleasure to work with Belinda. Not only was she able to create fresh, evocative and inspirational copy, but she did so in a way that maintained the essence and spirit of our destination while delivering on time, to budget and spot on to our brief. All in all it was a very positive experience and I would be happy to use Belinda again and also recommend her to other businesses.”

Training

Honor Wilson-Fletcher MBE, CEO British Exploring Society:

“Belinda is one of our most active and progressive Media Leaders – volunteering across both our Open and Invited expeditions. She develops and facilitates fun, challenging and rewarding reflective learning experiences through her inventive use of a range of media  – and she receives extremely positive feedback from our explorers.  The British Exploring team also love working with Belinda – she is energetic, positive, challenging, creative, thoughtful and utterly engaged with our mission and vision.”

Lynnette Crisp, Head of Marketing, Visit Kent:

“Belinda ran a copywriting training session for the Visit Kent team. With a range of skills in the team and various copywriting needs she made the session highly inspirational, inclusive for all and above all fun! The copywriting skills of everyone involved in the session dramatically improved.  I would not hesitate to recommend Belinda for future projects.”

Liz Miller, Lecturer in Journalism and Media, University of St Mark & St John (Marjon):

“I’ve been working with Belinda in her role as visiting lecturer at Marjon for the past four years. She’s highly organised, always reliable and a pleasure to work with. Belinda is a very effective communicator and her background as a professional broadcast journalist and writer brings credibility and insight to her teaching practice.”

Broadcasting

Mark Grinnell, Managing Editor, BBC Radio Devon:

“Belinda is a brilliant broadcaster, equally at home with music, news and current affairs programmes. She is well known and liked by BBC radio audiences in the UK and abroad.  In addition Belinda is a great team member and can often be heard presenting our breakfast show and news output.”

 

Archives

Rosalyn Goulding, Exhibition Manager , Telegraph Museum Porthcurno:

(Writing about the museum’s £2.5million re-development, 2014) “We’ve had a really positive response to the new exhibitions. Having worked with a number of different contractors on this project, we were really impressed with your professionalism, output and the fact that you just gave us exactly what we wanted! I’ve walked past many people in the galleries sitting and listening to the oral histories with a little smile on their faces, and we’ve had lots of comments about the ‘lovely audio-visual experience’.”

Ben Lumby, Exhibitions Manager, National Maritime Museum Cornwall:

“Belinda has produced audio for several exhibits here at the Maritime Museum. I’d say we are quite fussy clients and are really particular about how our archive audio material is treated and presented. With that in mind we have been impressed by the way in which Belinda responded to our brief, crafting elegant audio pieces from our clips and incorporating sound effects to add atmosphere without interfering with the integrity of the original material.”
