    • I have known Nicola in a professional capacity for several years and, in the past year, have worked directly with her on a number of key client projects.  Developing both strategic and tactical campaigns Nicola brings a high level of insight and analysis. She effectively utilises her professional marketing education and practical experience to develop well targeted and creative marketing plans, while her contacts book is crammed full of all the right journalists, thought-leaders and key celebrity faces.  She has her finger on the pulse and keeps abreast of all the latest developments in marketing and communications, including social media, to help publicise her clients.  Personable and well-connected, Nicola’s supportive nature ensures the experience is always positive and highly productive - she is also fun, engaging, energetic and a joy to work with.  If you are seeking to secure the highest possible profile in the press, I would not hesitate to recommending Nicola and her work.

    • I have worked with Nicola Bothwell at NB Chartered Marketing on several occasions when establishing my business both in the UK and worldwide on the internet.  I have found Nicola to be courteous, hard-working and successful in raising 121 Dietitian's profile.  She is creative, persistent and professional in her approach.  Perhaps the most important thing I can say is that I continue to work with her and that's because what she does works.  I recommend her most highly and unreservedly.

    • Brilliant, the most efficient launch I’ve been to.

    • I worked with Nicola for the 2011 Fate Awards where she booked Andrew Stone from Sky 1 Pineapple Dance Studios. Nicola was extremely professional and delivered a great itinerary for Andrew along with a beautiful luxury hotel in Belfast! The event went extremely well and Andrew received great publicity from the event which worked for both Andrew and the Fate Awards team!  We would definitely recommend Nicola’s services to any company looking for great PR and marketing services for their business or products.

    • Nicola is an excellent communicator and business contact.  Always willing to achieve results through her friendly approach and attention to detail.  Nicola always rises to challenges and steps up to the mark in meeting deadlines - a first class professional in every sense of the word.

      Chris Love, Love PR, Chair CIPR NI
    • Nicola handles press conferences and announcements for me both effectively and, when needed, with sensitivity, and can be entrusted with confidential information in advance of any press announcements.  Global time zones have never proved a challenge as she works any hour of the day or night to meet deadlines and achieve the desired results.  Nicola has created and maintained relationships with media in Japan, United Kingdom, Ireland and United States of America which have been invaluable in promoting my career.  She is the ultimate professional, not letting her personal relationship with my family and I cloud her judgement when it comes to the job she has to do.

      Wayne Pocket Rocket McCullough, Former World Champion Boxer
    • Nicola was both charming and friendly and could not do enough for us during our stay in Belfast.  Everyone in Belfast was so hospitable and left us with such a huge impression that we now know there is a lot more to Irish hospitality than just Guinness!
