Prof Tony Lentin, Cambridge academic, barrister and author of Banker Traitor Scapegoat Spy? The troublesome case of Sir Edgar Speyer:
“I came across Ellee after stumbling across a blog post she wrote about Sir Edgar Speyer, the subject of my book, Banker Traitor Scapegoat Spy? The troublesome case of Sir Edgar Speyer. He had captured her imagination, just like mine, and I felt she would be the perfect person to help me promote it.
“She created the content for my new website, achieved BBC and ITV news coverage about Sir Edgar’s life, crafted a letter which was published in The Guardian and helped secure a slot for me to speak at Holt Festival in 2014.
“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ellee, she is a very genuine and committed professional with wide ranging valuable skills and a determination to succeed.”
Troels Jordansen, Chairman of International Health Technology, Cambridge, provider of the most innovative private cancer screening in the workplace and for individuals:
“We started working with Ellee in September 2012 and are very pleased with the results of our collaboration. Her first assignment lead to the placement of an article in the national press which has generated significant market interest. Ellee has boundless energy and is full of ideas in how to profile our company. We are looking forward to working with her in the longer term.”
Kelly Mepham, Business Development & Marketing Associate at Arecor Limited:
“Ellee has been a huge asset to Arecor and has helped us to create and implement a new, fresh-thinking strategic communication plan.

Ellee’s expertise has helped us to refine our technology message and ultimately shown us how to communicate effectively with our target audience.”
Greer Deal, Director of Global Regulatory Services, working with life sciences:
“Ellee is an extremely passionate and driven individual embracing every opportunity to showcase her clients. Bobby and I were delighted when she agreed to work with us. Her enthusiasm is infectious and her dedication and commitment to us to achieve our PR objectives has never waivered.
“With her help, support and guidance we have raised the profile of our company, Global Regulatory Services, to a completely new level and we are now firmly in the spotlight. So much so that one of the partners of a large, successful biopharmaceutical organisation said to us “there’s a lot of noise about you at the moment, you must be doing something right”!
“If you want Ellee to be a ‘short-term fix’ she won’t disappoint, but we would strongly recommend investing for the long-term because this is when you’ll really reap the rewards. Thanks, Ellee, you’re a star!”
Julie Barnes, CEO of Abcodia, an innovative molecular diagnostics company with exclusive IP commercialisation rights to one of the largest biobanks in the UK in partnership with UCL:
“We have been delighted to have had the opportunity to engage Ellee to support our company start-up. Ellee has shown real enthusiasm and commitment to our cause and her knowledge of multi-media PR and marketing has really proven its worth.”
Francesca Polini, founder of Adoption with Humanity:
“Ellee is quite simply phenomenal. For someone who works independently, she achieves what you would expect from a team of experts. She is bright, knowledgeable, full of energy, commitment and passion. And she simply doe not give up until she has achieved what she feels is right. She uses every possible available channel to get the message across to the right audiences, she is also personable, a great learner, manages expectations well and is an absolute joy to work with.
Prof Wayne Powell, Director of the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences, Aberystwyth University:
“During my time as CEO of the National Institute of Agricultural Botany in Cambridge it was important to raise the profile of the organisation locally, nationally and internationally. I was fortunate in hiring Ellee Seymour to help with our PR activities and she also provided invaluable advice in identifying opportunities to raise the profile of NIAB with the local business community. She is a charismatic individual, with considerable energy and was highly successful in brokering new networking opportunities. She was great fun to work with.”
Althea Taylor-Salmon, Managing Director of leading UK PR and Marketing agency Golley Slater in East Anglia:
“Ellee was a key part of the PR team that supported the launch of a new strategy in the House of Lords for a client in the care sector. Although an independent political advisor, Ellee fitted into the team perfectly and provided invaluable advice on the political aspects of the PR strategy, media campaign and even produced a film of the launch and wrote about the care issue on her blog.”
Janet O’Keefe, speech and language therapist with Wordswell:
“I contacted Ellee Seymour with only a month to go till our national conference and book launch, ‘Towards a Positive Future: stories, ideas and inspiration from children with special educational needs, their families and professionals’, and we desperately needed more publicity and more delegates to attend. We attracted enough new delegates to run the event and achieved our objectives, and will definitely use Ellee again to publicise our conference next April 2012. We have made some excellent contacts as a result and already have more sponsors and partners for the future. Ellee always does her best and I would not hesitate to recommend her to others.”
Vysia Duffield, campaign manager at London-based digital media agency Unruly Media:
“I have had the pleasure of working with Ellee on several occasions and have found her to be a genuinely nice and pleasant person with an amazing amount of energy and enthusiasm. Her blog is also fantastic, content-focused and above all, filled with well written, relevant and insightful articles. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her work and her professionalism.
”To demonstrate how Ellee knows her stuff, I’ve just came back from a WOMMA UK (Word of Mouth Marketing) meeting and I was really surprised that there were so many PR people who didn’t really know what Twitter is! I have a great respect for Ellee for being so tech savvy and active on so many social media media platforms. She is definitely one in a million!”
Ian McKendrick, social media strategist:
“Ellee did a fantastic job of helping us to promote the launch of The Business Hub when we expanded onto a new radio station. She provided written copy, blog articles, video and press coverage through her extensive personal network, as well as promoting the event through her social networks.
“Within minutes of her press release being published we experienced many hundreds of hits to our website, and so many downloads of our show podcasts that it almost brought our web server down!
“Ellee certainly knows her stuff, and is probably one of the most connected networkers I know, and is able to instantly raise awareness almost at the click of a mouse. She was a pleasure to work with, highly professional, and absolutely thorough, and without hesitation she imparted her wealth of knowledge and experience to ensure we didn’t miss a thing.
“I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ellee, and we’re looking forward to working with her again to help us promote future events.”
Julian Sturdy, Conservative MP for York Outer:
“Ellee Seymour is an excellent publicist, having worked with me during the 2005 and 2010 general elections. She has a great sense of the occasion and ability to deal with news stories as they arise, whilst at the same time getting the right message across. This is why I have asked her to continue to be my Press Officer now I am an elected MP as I trust her judgement and skills and appreciate her creativity, which includes making great campaigning videos, taking publicity photographs and managing my website.
Rob Halfon, Conservative MP for Harlow:
“Ellee Seymour is a remarkable woman. Not just vivacious, wise and creative, she is an expert media adviser.

Cambridge businessman Stephen Oliver, who is seeking selection as a Conservative parliamentary candidate for the 2010 general election:
“Ellee is very focused and clearly very experienced at political campaigning.

She really is a ‘miracle worker’!”
George Eustice, Deputy Press Secretary for the Conservative Party during the 2005 General Election, and former Press Chief for David Cameron, now MP for Camborne and Redruth:
“We have been consistently impressed by her unflagging enthusiasm, determination and resourcefulness in the job and, given the chance, would work with her again in the future.”

She joined our team of Regional Press Officers at a fairly late stage in the campaign, but managed to get to grips with a challenging and demanding role in a very short period of time.”

“Ellee is a highly professional PR expert who combines a busy working life with complete dedication towards her voluntary work. She is constantly looking for ways to improve the awareness of Headway and the effects of brain injury in general. Ellee has a measured, inclusive style which quickly results in buy-in to new ideas and concepts. She never stands still and is always pushing forward in everything she does. I have no hesitation in recommending Ellee.”
Kate Lewis, former Chief Executive of Headway Cambridgeshire:
“Ellee Seymour volunteers for Headway Cambridgeshire as one of our Trustees and, as well as being involved in the overall governance of the charity, she concentrates particularly on helping us to raise our media profile. It is safe to say that in the few months that Ellee has been involved with our work we have achieved more column inches and air time than we had in all of the previous several years. Ellee has that unusual quality of being naturally genuinely interested in other people which means she takes the time to find out what makes you tick – she also has boundless energy and enthusiasm – if Ellee says she’ll do something: consider it done. The staff and clients at Headway Cambridgeshire are all grateful to Ellee for her interest, expertise, time and dedication.”
Derek Wilson, Cambridge inventor of the fire safety Life Light alarm, who hired Ellee to record a promotional video:
“Ellee is very dedicated and always goes the extra mile to get the job done…. Thanks!”
Veronica Callanan, Project Director of The Development Centre, a private centre for drink and drug addicts in Cambridge:
“Until I met Ellee I was finding it very hard to get any kind of media interest in what I thought was a very interesting story about my business. The local paper gave me a couple of inches which resulted in no extra business. Ellee managed to generate a massive amount of media interest in my work, all of the local papers (4 and counting!) carried 2 to 3 page spreads dedicated to my business, I have also been on local radio and have built up a good relationship with them which has resulted in regular appearances. All of which gave me lots of opportunities to promote what I do. I have also recently been contacted by a national magazine who also want to publish my story. This all happened because Ellee has the contacts and knows exactly what angle to promote. We are very grateful to her for her hard work and belief in what we are doing.”
Liza Moore, Principal of East Anglia’s exclusive dating agency Tempting Fate:
“Ellee became my PR consultant in 2005 and together with her enthusiastic and professional approach she was able to get me maximum publicity across the media. This lead on to other interesting leads such as Radio Cambridge and Radio Suffolk contacting me too.
“I have been very impressed with Ellee’s had work and would thoroughly recommend her to anyone who needs more publicity and focus for their business.”
Mark Newey, owner, hypnotherapist and life coach at Winning Minds, Saffron Waldon:
“Ellee’s understanding of how local media works has allowed her to achieve more for me in 2 months than I achieved in the last 5 years! She got me 2 local radio spots (1 for 45 minutes)in the second and third months and to date I have appeared in 4 different newspapers with 3 different articles…all in 4 months. The key is finding something completely topical (Ellee’s ideas are endless!) getting it to the right editor in plenty of time and chase, chase, chase! I can’t wait until our next project!”
Marie Munro, parent and teen coach:
“Ellee has a very professional and direct approach. She knows what will work for you. Within 24 hours of her sending out my press release I was contacted by East Anglia News and the Cambridge Evening News, both wanting to meet with me to run a story on the work that I do with teenagers and parents. I highly recommend her services.”

“Many thanks for handling my press release so quickly, doing such a great job on the text, and for generating so much interest. The fact that within a day of your sending out the release, I was contacted by two publications is testament to your effectiveness.”I’m positive that through your knowledge, experience and contacts that Ill achieve much greater response than I would have otherwise. I’ll definitely use your services again (when I win a big competition!), and actively recommend you to the people I know.”
Trina Hill, founder of InTrinSec Company Secretarial Limited:
“Ellee produced an exceptional press release from my very factual article on changes in company law, making the subject exciting and interesting. She proposed a comprehensive list of newspapers and journals to target and three major publications in the region printed articles. I would not hesitate to use Ellee’s services again.”
