PR Works

“I have worked with Peta on a number of projects since 1997 and knew her work with the WSA agency before then. She consistently adds great value to everything she touches, has an encyclopaedic knowledge of her market, is better connected across the spectrum than anyone else and brings presence to any task. Working with us at the Royal Southern Yacht Club, she is again proving to be the creative spark.”

John Walker, Director, Royal Southern Yacht Club

“Peta is a superb PR consultant operating within the marine market. She is enthusiatic, extremely well connected and a professional who gets results. I have worked with Peta directly and via our mutual involvement with the superb J.P. Morgan Asset Mangement Round the Island Race (organised by the Island Sailing Club) and have nothing but praise for the work she does.”

Simon Boulding, Britannia Corporate Events

“We’ve had the privilege of working with Peta for the last eight years, during which time she has been a driving force, increasing the media coverage of Cowes Week throughout the specialist and mainstream press; a consummate professional.”

Stuart Quarrie, CEO, Cowes Week Ltd

“As a magazine editor I have come across PR Works many times over the last 10+ years, receiving press releases, attending press launches as well as discussing feature ideas or help with images relating to various clients they have handled over the years. I have always found Peta pleasant, efficient, friendly and understanding of the press, pro-active with a great grasp of the marine industry. Always a pleasure to deal with.”

Gael Pawson, Yachts and Yachting

“As Skandia Cowes Week host broadcasters, strong innovative storylines are critical to the quality of our television news coverage. Peta Stuart Hunt has a track record at finding strong and imaginative news stories and features prior to the event. As an example, she discovered a veteran competitor who has been competing in Cowes for more that fifty consecutive years, a story that enjoyed national television news and broadsheet newspaper coverage.”

Richard Simmonds, APP Broadcast

“We are taking our business to the next level and capitalising on our successes through PR forms part of our growth and brand-building process. We always strive to be the best, work with the best and deliver the best, and we know we’ll get the commitment, advice and results we’re looking for with Peta on board.”

Allie Smith, Managing Director, Sailing Logic

“When working on major sporting events such as Skandia Cowes Week, it is vital that we have a slick PR operation in place, that has all the right media contacts. In PR Works, we have that in bundles. In short, Peta's contacts ensure that we service the media with images from the event that get published!”

Dan Towers, Director, onEdition Photography

“As PR consultant to World Cruising Club since the beginning of 2005, Peta's professionalism and attention to detail have made a valued contribution to our PR strategy, and have contributed to a greatly improved media profile.”

Jeremy Wyatt, Director, World Cruising Club

“I had the pleasure of working with Peta when she was PR Manager for Cowes Week, she is a huge asset to all of her clients and her enthusiasm and passion for all she does is evident to all. I would highly recommend her.”

Frank Fletcher, CEO, The Ellen MacArthur Trust

“Peta's energy, determination and excellent media contacts have helped Skandia increase exposure for the brand through our sponsorship of Skandia Cowes Week. Not only is Peta good at her job, she has a great personality that makes her a pleasure to work with.”

Jo Rimmer, PR Manager, Skandia

“Peta always ensured that our new product information and corporate news stories were in front of the media promptly and efficiently and this resulted in excellent press and media coverage. Her excellent relationship with the media always also guaranteed a good response to press calls and she brought her professional organisation skills to the event at the same time. I always felt confident with Peta alongside me at a press conference.”

Nick Gill, Chairman, Gill

“Peta took a neglected market with a non-existent public relations plan, and in short order developed a successful strategy for promoting our product. Our exposure in the European press increased two-fold, we launched a new line with the European market, and we developed comprehensive programs in several different countries. I would not hesitate to use her services again and look forward to the opportunity where we can work together in the future. I know she'll get results.”

George Sass Jnr, Editor in Chief, Yachting USA
(formerly European Marketing for Grand Banks/Eastbay)

“You are a star and you obviously have stacks of enthusiasm for the Show. It’s a real pleasure to be working with you. We’re all benefiting from your knowledge and experience, but I’m personally also benefiting from just the ‘way you are’ which is basically very cool, yet methodical and concise. I think we’ll have a lot of fun, and I hope you can see that the Show will benefit from your own personal input.”

James Brooke, M.D. Sail, Power & Watersports Show

“For anyone seeking corporate public and media relations, particularly in the sports / marine arena, I wholeheartedly recommend Peta Stuart-Hunt. I have worked with her for many years, as webmaster for the International Sailing Federation and the Royal Ocean Racing Club, and as editor of the Scuttlebutt Europe newsletter. Peta's press releases are invariably well written in terms of style, format, content and grammar, making my life as an editor of a popular newsletter much easier. Her connections in the marine and sports industries, along with her vast experience in both, make her the consummate professional and an excellent choice for any firm wishing to increase its global presence.”

David McCreary, Editor, Scuttlebutt Europe
