Promundo | State of The World Fathers 2015
Rebecca Ladbury did some amazing work with communications and logistics, really some of the best I’ve ever seen in my now quite long career so congratulations to you for that.
Rebecca Ladbury was the first person to turn me onto a subject – malaria – that eventually became a book. The kind of PR journalists pray for and that the world could use more of – honest, efficient, resourceful and extremely well-informed.
We worked with Rebecca to promote Half of a Yellow Sun, Biyi Bandele’s debut feature. Creating a profile for a first feature, where the director does not have an existing film profile to call on, takes strategic thinking, energy, imagination and commitment, and Rebecca has all of those in spades. Everyone involved in making a film like this has to put their heart and soul into it to make it possible, and it’s a great feeling when the publicist becomes part of that team, and puts her heart and soul into it too.
Partners for Prevention | UNDP
Ladbury PR delivered global media exposure for our project beyond our wildest expectations. With their expert preparation and training, our spokespeople were able to handle the toughest questions and consistently communicate our key messages on the complex issue of violence against women to a wide range of media around the world. I was thoroughly impressed with the professionalism, personal care and patience offered to us by Ladbury and highly recommend them to all my partners and associates.
Watershed has worked with Ladbury over the last four years on a huge range of activity. Not only do Ladbury do normal PR things (like finding the story and securing the coverage) really well, they are brilliant at coaxing stories from the creatives we support, often feed in ideas and introductions to help shape our thinking and generally feel like part of the team. I couldn’t recommend them more.
Umbrellium and Thingful®
We have been working with Ladbury since 2013, most recently on Thingful, a search engine for the Internet of Things, where Rebecca and her team have been successful in helping position our new product as well as lead on the strategy for its development with a wide variety of Internet of Things, big data, connected objects print and online publications; and Umbrellium, a new company that has had a number of high profile digital art commissions in 2014, where Ladbury’s strong relationship with the journalists in art, technology and participation in the public space has been crucial. Their knowledge of our space, both for Thingful and Umbrellium, and their relationships with journalists are second to none.
The British Society of Cinematographers
Ladbury worked with us to rebrand the society’s image and create a new vibrant website to encourage the public and budding cinematographers to come to our Q & As. The response to both our website and events has been phenomenal. It has become a real source of revenue, due to the hard and knowledgeable work of Ladbury PR that brought us into the 21st century.
Handle Productions | Moomins on the Riviera
Working with Rebecca Ladbury has been a pure joy: efficient, cooperative and professional. In whichever order you want.
The Culture Capital Exchange
It has been a complete pleasure working with Ladbury PR on the Inside Out Festival 2014, you really understood the organisation and the complex and wide ranging festival, and your approach and advice have been bang on target all the way through the campaign. We have really appreciated your responsiveness and creativity as much as your excellent contacts and networks and are delighted with the range and depth of coverage that you achieved for the festival. We look forward to working with you again and the near future, and would not hesitate to recommend Ladbury PR to other organisations.
One of the best radio PRs in the business.
So much more than a PR agency, Ladbury have been indispensable in developing the Jazz FM brand, down to commissioning presenters, refreshing our online presence and curating live events. They have been with us every step of the way, masterminding the Jazz FM relaunch in 2009 and ensuring profile raising coverage ever since.
Ladbury has been working with Channel 4 for many years providing dedicated and pro-active publicity support across a range of projects. The role balances expertise, specialism and a wide-ranging understanding of the media and how it impacts on young people, a talent we value tremendously.
Universal Music TV
Ladbury helped us mount a successful campaign for our joint venture with Jazz FM, the ‘Peppermint Candy’ album, a Top Ten Hit in the summer of 2011. Not only were they tenacious in the pursuit of media coverage for the record and a pleasure to deal with day to day, they proved to be a dynamic and creative driving force behind the album’s conception from the very beginning of the project.
Ladbury are a great bunch. Their events are always quirky and fun, and they are incredibly nice to boot.
We hired Ladbury to support us in recruiting employers for our panels. We had ambitious targets, which required us to engage with companies we had not reached in the past. Ladbury have been a pleasure to work with – professional, hardworking, versatile and incredibly friendly to boot. They have been instrumental to the success of us reaching our targets, helping us with press and promotion and through recruiting hundreds of companies from across the Creative Industries. I look forward to working with Ladbury whenever the opportunity arises in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone.
Malaria No More UK
Ladbury played a pivotal role in the launch of Malaria No More UK. We worked together to develop and maximise our global media strategy centred around mosquito net stunts with David Beckham and Andy Murray. Rebecca’s creative flair combined with her bespoke and tenacious approach to media relations helped deliver over 200 pieces of media coverage reaching a global audience of over 200 million.
Ladbury have helped us at Folksy to achieve great visibility in a competitive area, from a standing start and on a limited budget. Their passion and enthusiasm is infectious and their knowledge of the communications sector is second-to-none. They totally ROCK.
