Testimonials

Nicky and I worked on the CCWF committee together over the course of a year. During this time she coordinated media interviews, media coverage and social media posts that were not only professional and polished but always seemed to hit the right note. Sheโ€™s highly collaborative and remarkably innovative. I was utterly impressed by her focus and commitment. It was a pleasure working with her and getting to know her.

Amy Andrews Capricorn Coast Writers Festival programming coordinator, author of 65 novels and former Romance Writers of Australia Conference Organiser:

I have worked with Nicky for the past few months as we prepare for the inaugural Capricorn Coast Writers Festival. In her marketing and communications role, she writes copy and press releases, and liaises with print and digital media. Nicky takes the time to conduct research and gather information, and looks for innovative ways to further the success of the festival. She is a visionary who sees the big picture, and is keen to embrace new experiences. Nicky has a love of learning and is willing to step outside her comfort zone to achieve her goals

We have worked on and off with Nicky for more than a decade and found her work to be pitch-perfect no matter what the subject. From extended feature writing to hard news copy, she is always engaging, informative and focussed. From a practical perspective, she delivers content on time and formatted to our needs. Her camera work is great too. Happy to recommend her.

Nene Davies. Capricorn Coast Writers Festival Director and author of five fiction novels

I have worked with Nicky in a professional and volunteer capacity for the past few years. Nickyโ€™s strengths are her passion in connecting people, providing a voice to their stories as well as opportunity to participate and create in their local community. As a past Director of the CQUniversity Village Festival, Nicky worked closely with me on extending the reach of our media and promotions for the festival into Central Queensland, while also forging in-roads into digital tourism to encourage interstate and intrastate festival attendance. Nicky has a determination to follow things through and to think out of the box, considering perspectives that are not always thought of and considered by her colleagues in marketing communications. As a writer Nicky has a proven ability to think creatively and autonomously create content that appeals to audiences across community, lifestyle and travel markets.โ€
