Ebony was recommended to us as a speaker for a Womens Business Event that we were hosting in June 2018. Ebony gave a brilliant interactive presentation on ‘escaping the 9-5’ which was well received by the audience of around 25 women. Her presentation was relevant, clear, motivational and well suited to the event and audience. What better a person to show you how to escape the 9- 5 ? than Ebony, who has actually succeededed in doing this herself. Ebony was a pleasure to work with & we would love to have Ebony speak on our platform again.
Ebony managed our charity launch event with ease; she was organised, creative and had a handle on all things thrown her way. She delivered the brief and was passionate about the charity’s vision and able to convey this succinctly throughout. Ebony has a calm and strategic approach, great communications skills and was a pleasure to work with. I would happily use her services again in the future.

We enlisted Ebony’s expertise to help us launch our new business, ZAPspace trampoline park, which includes the Curious Fox speakeasy, and Old Town Bistro to the public. We bought Ebony on to our project with a little over a month before we intended to launch our new service. Ebony showed due diligence and professionalism, she got to grips with the project quickly and immersed herself into it, liaising with the team, putting together a strategy for the launch.
She managed the press launch for ZAPspace which was a great success and secured significant coverage on relevant media platforms. Ebony also produced our crisis communications plan and was instrumental in setting up our marketing activities for our sister sites including Pitch. Ebony is dynamic, creative and hardworking and a pleasure to work with.

A big thank you to Ebony for her work on getting some of the NHS Confederation’s 2014 annual conference and exhibition content the kind of media coverage it deserved. Her ability to make sense of the maelstrom of ‘stuff’ – including all the internal tensions and anxieties that are so prevalent in the 6-8 week run-up to a major event – was invaluable.
Additionally, Ebony’s calm and methodical approach, superb personal skills, and first-class professional comms skills inspired huge confidence in everyone in the NHS Confederation with whom she worked, and it was immensely helpful to know that she was ‘on it’ in every aspect of the work we put her way (which was plenty!)
We’d be very happy to recommend Ebony’s services.
