“For our most significant research launch in a decade we needed to engage with a PR company to ensure our messages were effectively communicated. Thanks to Cake Communications we generated the most significant level of traditional and social media activity in our 21 year history. This included 4 pieces of TV  news coverage, two live radio interviews and features in the Western Mail and Daily Post. In addition our social media accounts had by far the highest level of activity we’ve ever seen. In addition we’ve also been featured on blogs, and our research has been cited in political party press releases. Overall the work Cake Communications undertook for us significantly exceeded our expectations and it has been a pleasure to work with such committed PR professionals.” John Jackson, Marketing Director, Chwarae Teg (Women’s Economic Development Agency in Wales)

“We engaged Cake to help us plan a major campaign from a social media perspective. They researched and developed a robust campaign strategy for us which we were delighted with.  It enabled us to hit the ground running and covered everything from audience building to a content strategy.  Cake also organised a training workshop for our entire team which was really informative and productive.  We wanted the whole team to buy into social media and also to explore how we could use it to increase awareness of and access to the Commissioner’s Office.  We were delighted with the expert, creative and professional service they provided and would recommend them to anybody looking to improve the way they use social media.” Rebecca Griffiths, Office of the Children’s Commissioner for Wales

“Working with Cake Communications is a pleasure because they really understand our business, our market and asked all the right questions to come up with the best programme for us on a limited budget. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other businesses looking for an expert, creative and professional communications support.” Amanda Rosoman, Clarks Pies

“Cake provided an excellent strategic communications service to support our fund’s launch. As a city-based fund looking to invest in Welsh projects, we needed support from a bilingual consultancy with a high level of media and stakeholder insight. From the organisation of a highly successful investors’ event to PR activity both in Wales and in national trade press, we were delighted with the outcomes.” Mike Dunn, Director, Iona Capital

“Cake Communications are far and away the best PR agency we have ever used. They have exceeded our expectations in every way. Our profile with the local media and food bloggers has been significantly boosted, and Cake’s ideas and proactive approach means we have enjoyed national and international media coverage, which was beyond our wildest expectations. They have done incredibly well at raising awareness of us, which has led to an increase in business. I can’t recommend them highly enough.” Adam Pledger, Owner, Park House Club

“We recruited Cake Communications to help raise our profile through the press. The team has exceeded our expectations in the coverage that they have achieved for us.  Their staff quickly understood what we are trying to achieve and how to transfer our objectives into newsworthy stories that suit the relevant news channels we are targeting.  Their approach in interviewing our learners and staff is exemplary and we have a solid bank of wonderful stories and quotes thanks to their friendly but in-depth interview skills. I would have no hesitation in recommending the work of Cake Communications.” Catherine Phillips, Marketing Manager, The College Ystrad Mynach

Cake Communications’ track record in this area speaks for itself.” Professor Dylan Jones-Evans, Professor and Director of Enterprise and Innovation, University of Wales

“Recently, at our Annual Road Safety Convention, Sara from Cake Communications gave us a very comprehensive overview of the effective use of social media. We’re confident that our partners will find social media less daunting as a result. Cake Communications was efficient and professional, and we hope to work with them again in the future.” Michelle Harrington, Secretary, Road Safety Wales

“We have worked with Cake Communications on maximising social media opportunities and they bring freshness and insight into a market that needed a real shot in the arm.” Daran Hill, Managing Director, Positif Politics

“I engaged the team to deliver our first social media campaign. They presented creative ideas in keeping with the company’s overall brand and image. It really helped me to work with an expert team when taking our first steps into social media. I would certainly recommend their expertise and creative thinking. As a result of the viral competition visitors to our website doubled and we saw more than 1,500 entries into our video-based competition. It was a great way for us to launch ourselves into social media. We won a national trade award for innovative marketing with the campaign as well as an Institute of Welsh Affairs Western Mail award for creative marketing, which is testament to the strength of their creativity and expertise.” Sarah Cleevely, Marketing Manager, Nolan Windows

“Sara’s expertise and experience was a driving force in alerting us to PR opportunities and to spotting angles, which delivered some great levels of coverage at key times for the business. She is highly responsive, quickly generating copy and getting it right first time – a skill a busy marketing director really values! Her whole approach is proactive and professional, plus she is great fun to work with. It’s no surprise we scooped a gold CIPR award for best Corporate Communications thanks to Sara’s efforts.” Jo Tooze, formerly Marketing Director at Connaught Compliance Ltd (re-branded to Santia Consulting Ltd)

“Sara is highly valued for her ideas and writing skills, but her best attribute is her relationship skills. She not only works hard at relationships with clients. She is also extremely good at working with journalists, often providing over and above what is expected. She does this by getting to know who works in her clients’ target markets and what they need.” Duncan Higgitt, Associate Editor, WalesHome.org and former Features Editor, Western Mail [/one_third_last]
