Verity Kalinowski, Marketing & Communications Manager, Gtech: “Minx provided Gtech wtih immeasurable knowledge, support and dedication for a complex PR brief. From launching a number of the UK’s most popular floor-care products with press events, to covering the day-to-day PR for a wide selection of products spanning a variety of categories. Michelle and her team ensured there was continued interest and vast coverage. There was a thorough understanding of the brand, but Minx also quickly grasped the direct to consumer approach of the business and the need for PR to be supportive of the DR media activity.  The results assisted in the business’ rapid growth, significant increase in market share, and total sales performance.

“Working with Michelle for four years has been an absolute delight. She brought professionalism, dedication and flair to a crowded and highly competitive market. Working to challenging deadlines and expectations, Michelle always delivered and kept the brand’s needs at the forefront of her work.”


Moray Forbes, Director, FW Medical Ltd: “Minx PR has the full array of PR skills. Providing excellent exposure through well-written pieces in both the press and in a variety of health magazines and women’s titles, Minx have been of enormous help in gaining nationwide coverage for silicol gel. They have helped the brand gain momentum by spreading the word to sufferers of gastrointestinal orders. PR with the help of advertising has translated into a tenfold increase in volumes over a three year period. At a personal level, as well as being both creative and efficient, Michelle and her team are a pleasure to work with and immerse themselves in the needs of the companies they work with.”
