But don’t just take my word for it, here’s what people have to say about working with me and my team:

EM.VA

We recently launched our Diversity, Inclusion & Wellbeing Consultancy called SISU and wanted some top tips on getting our business in front of the right people. We booked a call in with Garnet PR and had a coaching session with Rhiannon we took us through a step by step process on building our brand, from Press release writing to Social media to Business development ideas. She was able to provide us with creative solutions that had really benefited our business. The thing that makes her so great at what she does is that its a lasting relationship, we have had many phone calls and follow up sessions to see how we are getting on and bounce ideas around. She has become part of SISU's journey and I am glad we worked with her. I would recommend Garnet PR to anyone like us starting up and doesn't know what to do next when it comes to marketing, PR, and social media. Get in contact with Rhiannon Garnet PR

My Assistant Emilia

I booked a 1-1 coaching session with Rhiannon as I was struggling to plan and set goals for my business. Rhiannon was absolutely incredible, helping me to gain clarity and plan my goals for the rest of the year. She is super passionate about supporting other women in their business and I would highly recommend working with her if you could use some support too! Thank you so so much!

- Emilia Capper, My Assistant Emilia 

Apt Cavalier Ltd

I recently had a fabulous session with Garnet PR - Rhiannon is a PR whizz with a wealth of industry knowledge and is so approachable and friendly in the way she gives advice. Fantastic aftercare with several follow up voice notes to inspire me to take action. Absolutely would recommend working with Garnet PR to anyone looking to take their business to the next level. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

- Sarah SJ Johnstone, Apt Cavalier Ltd

Llaeth Preseli Milk 

I recently had a half hour zoom session with Rhiannon talking about our new business. It was super super beneficial - Rhiannon gave me loads of ideas of things to do to get the business out there and getting our story heard, and I came off the call buzzing! She's so down to earth, knowledgable and inspiring and I know that her tips and advice will be super beneficial to me and the business. I will definitely work with Rhiannon again in the near future and would recommend her services to anyone wanting to get clarity and confidence in how to promote their business. Thank you Rhiannon!

- Angharad Menna Edwards, Llaeth Preseli Milk 

Hannah Sophia England

I can't recommend Rhiannon and Garnet PR enough. I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Rhiannon for her brilliant coaching day. She helped me analyse my business, my target audience, where to reach them and how to come up with a game plan. Since then, Garnet PR have been taking care of my PR along with coaching me. Highly recommend them!

- Hannah-Sophia Jarvis, Hannah Sophia England

Fiona Scott Media Consultancy

Rhiannon of Garnet PR is professional, knowledgable and full of helpful ideas. It may seem bonkers for a PR professional like me to work with another. However it's not. When you are busy in business working with clients, it's very easy to let your own PR slide. A few months ago I realised I needed to address this and looked for someone I know, like and trust who would be able to work with someone like me. And that's what we've done and continue to do. Like anything else it's about relationships and it's about learning about each other and working towards us both being successful. During lockdown Rhiannon has been supportive and as a result we've managed to keep working together. I can wholeheartedly recommend working with her.

- Fiona Scott, Fiona Scott Media Consultancy

Virtually Done

Rhiannon has been so incredibly helpful! She was really easy to talk to and was happy to rearrange when I had tech issues which I really appreciated!! I left our call with plenty of new ideas and a plan moving forwards, can't recommend her enough!

- Jemma Lucy, Virtually Done

The Christmas Experience 2019

We worked with Rhiannon on The Christmas Experience at Lotherton in 2019. Having previously worked with her when she was not freelance, we were so impressed, we knew she would be the best person for our campaign and she went over and above to ensure we got the event out into the public eye. She's a fantastic writer, adaptable and passionate, and the single most organised person I've ever worked with. It's never an easy feat to promote in a saturated market, and to do it so successfully is a real testament to her skill and enthusiasm.I would highly recommend her to anyone needing support, ideas or coaching.

- Sara Merritt, Lotherton

Country Bumpkin Chic

I had the pleasure of working with Rhiannon over Christmas on a collaboration with 3 of the lovely brands she works with Go Your Own Way Art, Apparel & Accessories, Katie Cardew & Olive & Berry for my social media activity Country Bumpkin Chic & Friends Christmas Competition.

Rhiannon was so easy & straightforward to work with which made life co-ordinating 10 brands a dream. She also introduced me to Instagram voice notes – it’s the way forward & so much more personal & friendly than an email / message.


- Becky Wren, Country Bumpkin Chic

Olive & Berry

I worked with Rhiannon for new my brand launch Olive & Berry, budget was tight for us so we opted in for the small business, one campaign a month for 4 months package over Christmas.

We started the campaign in September so to see we featured in a lot of press magazines for Christmas was really positive, testament to Rhiannon getting a pitch out straight away and following up with the right contacts efficently. We exceeded our target by 3 times and hit around 30 features.

Rhiannon was proactive in her responses and was there if you needed her for anything. If you struggle with time and need the support to get in front of the media this can definitely help!


- Natalie Tyson, Olive & Berry

Grimsthorpe Castle

Rhiannon has been essential in supporting and advising the team at Grimsthorpe Castle on Social Media and PR campaigns this year. That being a one to one session or answering a question at 10 o’clock at night! She is always quick to get back to us with fantastic suggestions and ideas.
Whether you’re a new business, or looking for advice on how to build and engage with your existing Social Media audience - we would highly recommend Garnet PR for a friendly and professional approach. We look forward to working with you again soon!

I have worked with Rhiannon on a number of events and she is a joy to work with. Not only organised, and methodical, but she will know what you want, before you realise you want it.

Rhiannon has done a wonderful job helping with the launch of my new publishing business. What I've really appreciated is that she's helped me to learn new skills, like managing social media, and she's reached people and organisations I certainly couldn't have reached on my own. Thank you!

EM.VA

Rhiannon was the life saver I need in a time of real overwhelm where my business was growing fast and I felt like I needed to figure out how to handle that growth. Rhi was incredibly understanding and literally asked me all the right questions. Questions I knew I needed to tackle but was too scared. She gave me that boost I needed to get to the next level in my business. She is so knowledgable and personable - it was a real delight and almost like I had just woken up fully to the potential of where I could go. Rhiannon has a logical approach and i have benefited so much after our 1:1 power hour. Thank you so much for that incredible boost! 

- Emily Gardiner, EM.VA

MBST UK

Once lockdown started, I must be honest I was freaking out about my business and felt helpless. Rhiannon held some coaching sessions and they fuelled me with ideas and inspiration. Rhiannon gives you practical aids so that everything seems manageable and she gives you actions so you can start implementing them straight away. She was a tonic in such a troubling times and still is with her emails that keep me on track!

- Liz Clare, MBST UK

Ladies Countryside Community 

Working with Rhiannon has been an absolute pleasure and extremely valuable. Looking for some help and guidance with the ideas I had to move my business forward, I came away with so much more. I now have a toolkit of tips and skills to help me continue the work we've done together. Rhiannon's endless enthusiasm and positivity is extremely motivating too! I would 100% recommend Garnet PR and will be looking to work with them again. 

- Lindsey McDean, Ladies Countryside Community 

Roo and Fox

Absolutely 100% recommend Rhiannon. We have a 30 min (ok just over lol) discovery call and wow she helped me out so much. 
She asked me questions I hadn’t even thought of, things that journalists want to know. 
She has also helped me with my mindset and how to get into that positive routine.


- Zallah Marsh, Roo and Fox

Hurd & Co

My recent 1 to 1 with Rhiannon has had a significant impact on my business. Not only did she provide sound advice she encouraged and motivated me so much so that my last 4 social media posts have had over 2000 views in 4 consecutive days. This is all down to Rhiannon's insight, expertise and advice. I highly recommend Garnet PR.

- Dawn Webber Hurd, Hurd & Co

Tara Punter PR

Rhiannon is a whizz!! She's helped me secure amazing coverage and interviews for my business, which I know will go on to lead to more opportunities and clients. She's so knowledgable, passionate and promotes your business if its her own. A true superstar to work with.

- Tara Best, Tara Punter PR

Rural Roots

Rhiannon has been an amazing support to me over the summer when I needed an extra pair of hands from another freelancer and I'd highly recommend her. This girl knows her stuff! She hit the ground running and was a huge asset to my team and my clients. Thank you

Independent Cottages

We enjoyed working with Rhiannon for a one-off marketing campaign. A great communicator, enthusiastic, full of energy and professional throughout the whole campaign.

Go Your Own Way

I began working with Rhiannon in August 2019. We worked together in all elements of PR and Marketing, particularly getting my products to market via press coverage in Christmas Gift Guides,blogs, national and local press. 

The results were outstanding! we finished the year being featured in The Guardian Weekend Christmas Gift Guide which was phenomenal. 

Rhiannon is a star. ever the professional but also someone who is down to earth and appreciated a good natter. 

She oozes enthusiasm and is a delight to work with. she totally understands the barriers and work that goes into developing a small business and brand. 

I have continued my working with Rhiannon into 2020 developing my own Pr and Marketing skills alongside launching new products etc.


- Rachel Gaw, Go Your Own Way

The Christmas Experience

I worked with Rhiannon on the large Christmas event at Lotherton in 2018; her experience, professionalism and creativity were perfectly matched with the project and she was a joy to work with. She came up with innovative ideas to promote the event which went above and beyond our expectations and managed to co-ordinate activity which hit all of our objectives. From traditional PR to social media, personalised invitations and support at our press event, her confidence in organising press and bloggers ensured that it was a brilliant success and we secured not only more coverage than expected but by far the most we have ever achieved for The Christmas Experience. I’d be delighted to work with her again!

Professor David Field

Rhiannon and I worked together at the Zoological Society of London across a range of projects, from celebrating the animals to crisis communications. As Zoological Director, I was the person in front of the press so having strong PR support added to my confidence in dealing with media.
Rhiannon had an astounding ability to predict what was needed, when it was needed and who I needed to speak to, whatever issue we found ourselves in. Rhiannon also has an incredible way with people, building relationships for long-term PR advantage.
Rhiannon will be a remarkable asset to any organization  that engages with Garnet PR !

- Professor David Field,
Zoological Expert

Lizzy Dening

I worked with Rhiannon when she was working at ZSL London Zoo - as a fellow animal lover we got along famously as soon as we met! She was able to grant me a media space in the 10K race around the zoo, as well as inviting me in for various brilliantly fun activities, which all made for popular articles.

Chris Fawcett Coaching

What can I say about Rhiannon Kimberley Bates and Garnet PR, from the initial discussion regarding my new business venture serving the Construction Industry with Peak-Performance Coaching, Rhiannon was incredible, she created an amazing write up which told my story perfectly. We aimed at 7 pieces of publicised material, which given I had just set-up seemed a little high.
In fact, she managed to get 10 pieces across national and local news.

If you want some help launching and progressing your visibility online and across publications then Garnet PR is the place to be.

The Mulberry Tree Lifestyle & Mulberry Tree at Home

Following a recent one on one business coaching session with Rhiannon I felt I must say that she was both friendly and professional and it was a pleasure to be able to discuss our business ideas fully and receive thoughtful and insightful comments and suggestions.

I would happily recommend Rhiannon to any small business owner who is looking to improve their online and social media PR campaigns.
