“I have known Janie for more than 10 years, and for much of that time we were colleagues working alongside one another at The Caterer. We created many events and editorial initiatives together and Janie’s great eye for detail, trustworthiness, thoroughness, exacting standards and reliable nature always gave me confidence in our projects.
“Janie was back then, and continues to be today, a great source of inspiration to me. She is a hard-working individual, is diligent and creative and has a thirst for personal development like no-one else I know. This constant honing of her journalistic skillset ensures she is a relevant freelance writer and digital media specialist and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough for those looking for contemporary media skills.”

“Janie has been a friend, advocate, supporter and vocal communicator of the ACT Clean plans, messages and values. We met Janie though our support of the Acorn Awards and we are happy to reciprocate this support in the launch of her business.
“Through her skills as a social media specialist, great networker, strategic planner, digital media whizz, and connector and creator of community, we are just looking for the next opportunity to work together.”

“I was absolutely thrilled with the work Janie did on an activity sheet design that I needed for my children’s entertainment business. She bought together the selection of ideas given to her and created something that both my clients and I were really impressed with.
“She was prompt, professional and her attention to detail meant the results were outstanding. I couldn’t believe how quickly she was able to pull it all together. I thoroughly recommend her and will be using her services again. Thanks Janie.”
