"Previously Baxters had fought shy of media contact and had seldom taken the opportunity to communicate good news outside the business. A consequence of this stance was that, in general, business press were not inclined to report kindly on the company. Jen applied considerable effort into this arena. Her efforts have been well received and ongoing contact with the media is positive and the previously negative image has been substantially turned around."
Jen Nash has worked on a consultancy basis for Prince's Scottish Youth Business Trust (PSYBT) for three years providing PR support to our small not for profit organisation. During this time we have seen a marked increase in the press coverage we have achieved across Scotland and there has been a real impact on our brand awareness with our client groups, corporates and potential donors. Jen is a real asset to us and her unstinting enthusiasm and professional approach has greatly enhanced the marketing that we carry out. She provides some really excellent advice and her network of contacts has been invaluable. I have no hesitation in recommending Jen as a possible addition to your team.
Jen has been great to work with. When we launched the Scottish Family Business Association we knew it was vital to achieve awareness of our existence and understanding of our purpose through as many relevant media outlets as possible. Jen not only surpassed all of our expectations in this regard but also offered ongoing first-class advice and suggestions, managed the whole PR process to a tee, and was still able to lend a hand in the day-to-day work we were doing to bring our services to our prospective members in the most efficient manner. On top of that she is a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a truly professional PR and communications service.
Jen Nash came to us at Glasgow Caledonian University very well-recommended as a result of her extensive work and experience in the public relations industry. As an industry tutor and motivator of students on Public Relations modules on the BA (Hons) Media & Communication undergraduate degree at Glasgow Caledonian University, Jen has done excellent work for us, introducing a new generation of students to successful public relations techniques and helping students to work on public relations projects with real clients in highly accurate work simulations of the kind students would face in the real world of PR. At all times, Jen has delivered this industry tutoring to a very high standard and represents an extremely positive face and voice for the Scottish Public Relations industry.
In the five years that Jen Nash and I worked together at the Royal Caledonian Education Trust, Jen proved to be an outstanding and highly professional colleague. Working as the PR and Communications consultant to the Trust, Jen provided high quality, crucial advice and support in the task of taking a small, low profile, near 200-year-old charity based just north of London and providing it with the connections, profile and media opportunities that allowed it to achieve recognition on a national stage in Scotland. Jen successfully worked on the rebranding of the Trust, traction with national, local and education profession media in Scotland, greatly improved communication through printed matter and a major website re-build. Jen also masterminded significant events for the Trust including a national Trust DVD launch, 2 national education conferences and a Theatre in Education programme across Scotland as well as ensuring maximum recognition for the Trust's Bicentenary Year in 2015/6. My ability, as Chief Executive during the five years in question, to deliver on my objectives was very significantly enabled by the hard work, focused dedication and professional knowledge and ability of Jen Nash.
