Jay Evans, PR Account director at Kin Communications and The Relations Group: I had the pleasure of working with Hannah for just over a year, the latter spent as her direct team leader. Hannah is a dedicated, professional and highly intelligent employee with a massive drive to succeed. She works well to targets, understands her responsibilities and has a competent ability to create lasting and respectful relationships.
Hannah is one of the hardest working people I have met, she understands PR and its benefits to companies. She articulates herself well, is highly competent in face to face environments and combines all this with an infectious smile and laugh that makes working with her an absolute dream. I would recommend Hannah to anyone looking for an employee with drive, an ability to impress whilst providing a personality that both clients and colleagues would enjoy.
