The Humanitarian Logistics Association contracted Craigie Communications to manage our recent annual event – the 2021 Health and Humanitarian Logistics Conference. Due to Covid-19, this event was held over three days virtually across the globe. The services provided were excellent and highly efficient, with all the right attention to detail – particularly when handling the task of managing speakers and setting up panel discussions on varying topics and contexts. We highly recommend the CC team!
Valerie Craigie and her team at Craigie Communications are the ideal partners for Ifrah Foundation. Passionate about human rights, (and gender rights in particular), Valerie has been hands on in developing the right message, generating the right tone of coverage and positioning both with the best combination of outlets. Tackling a subject like Female Genital Mutilation in the wider media is fraught with sensitivities and requires her unique skillset and knowledge base of the kind of human rights language that is current and appropriate in an evolving media landscape. The ‘out of the box’ thinking Valerie applied to generating appropriate and impactful coverage was impressive when Ifrah Foundation was required to manage the positioning of the organisation and its work in the context of the release of a dramatic feature film based on the life story of its founder. Very impressive and a pleasure to work with no matter how challenging the circumstances.
I have worked with Craigie Communications over 4 years in organising our National Conference. I have found Craigie Communications to be thorough, reliable and supportive. They also supported us to deal with issues of internal management relating to conference organising. I have no hesitation in recommending Craigie Communications.
Since 2009 Valerie has managed the public relation activities for the Niall Mellon Township Trust building blitz in Cape Town, South Africa. This is an intensive campaign which involves a strong public relations plan, coordinating radio and television interviews with our team and volunteers, generating national and local media coverage and working closely with our team. Valerie manages the media office each year in Cape Town working with both Irish and South African media under extreme pressure. She is very capable, professional and generates excellent exposure for our charity. We highly recommend working with Craigie Communications.
The standards and professionalism of Craigie Communications are outstanding and we have been very happy with the quality of the services delivered. Events have run extremely smoothly, even where these have involved complex coordination of many aspects and organisations. Press and PR work has also been outstanding and carried out to a very professional standard. We have also developed excellent personal relations with the staff of Craigie Communications and have been very happy with the level of service and commitment which they employ on all contracts on our behalf. I would have no hesitation recommending the services of this company.
Valerie has worked with Poolbeg Publishers over the past 5 years publicising many of our new titles; fiction and nonfiction. She has worked with our new and established authors launching books, setting up interviews, gaining press and broadcast exposure. She is a pleasure to work with and we are delighted to recommend her as a consultant who can achieve excellent results.
