“I attended Christine’s workshop and it was fantastic! Informative, educational and entertaining. It has given me confidence to get my story out there! Highly recommend that you get along to the next one!”

“Christine’s a gem. I worked with her on behalf of several clients while she was Business Editor at the Northern Advocate and enjoyed immensely her relaxed, approachable style underscored by her ability to find and tell the story accurately with neither fear nor favour. Her ability to handle executive egos and still come away with a worthwhile story is extremely impressive! I hope to continue working with her. And you should too.”

Peter HeathDirector at Due North Corporate Communication & Reputation Management

“I can recommend Christine in all areas of media and communication. I have known her over the last couple of years and it’s been a joy. Her enthusiasm for life and her career is contagious and I consider Christine to be someone I would happily role model and learn a lot from, given her extended years in a similar industry.

Working as a social media coach, it’s all about sharing people’s stories and assisting them to up their brave online, creating engagement, respect and trust. Therefore, hand and hand goes publicity and media releases as this content fuels the fire for content. Christine is most excellent at pulling out the story within that drives their business. She knows the tips and tricks to spread the word and brings excitement and enthusiasm which is contagious. In our online business mentoring group, Liked Media VIP, we’ve been lucky enough to have Christine as our Media expert this month. She has recently delivered and shared challenges to get these local women in business delving into their businesses. Thought provoking and experienced. Christine is fantastic if you are ready to get out there and be noticed.”

“Christine is ‘hands down’ THE BEST ‘media person’ that I have encountered over the past 20 years that I’ve dealt with print and broadcast media. From the very first time that I met her and discussed The Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme with her, she was fully on board, consistently and passionately supporting and promoting our efforts to engage and build the entrepreneurial spirit among our young Northlanders. I wish that her passion and abilities were highly contagious – the industry that she operates in needs more of her!”

“Definitely recommend Christine!! Christine is very professional and thorough, right from full media plans, crisis planning and even down to helping with wording when you’re really at a loss for words! Thank you so much for all your help Christine, I really look forward to working with you further.”

“Christine is a highly creative, energetic and engaging individual with a real passion for her work. I was very impressed by her in her role as journalist with the Cork Independent on a number of levels, from her ability to organise and manage activities, her attention to detail and passion for the story. She’s always very personable and approachable.”

Renate MurphyManaging Director at CAMEO Communications

“I worked with Christine during our time with the Cork Independent and found her to be a truly inspiring, highly creative, energetic and engaging person as well as a highly skilled Journalist, she always told the story the way it was meant to be told and dealt with tough human interest pieces with a level of compassion I had never seen before or after my time watching Christine work at close quarters.”

Barry O’CallaghanTrend Micro - Content & Social Marketing Manager EMEA

“We found Christine from Solas Media professional and very knowledgeable. We had a consult with Christine and after following some easy instructions about gaining some media coverage we found ourselves in the local paper. Christine helped us to contact the right people, write our story angle and the results were phenomenal! If you want more media coverage see Christine she gets results fast!”

Darlene Pearks Relax Massage, Homegrown Northland

“Definitely recommend booking a session with Christine if you are ready to shake your business up and get more media attention. I contacted her with the intention of getting some tips for our up coming move and left with pretty much a full news media plan for the next year! She educated me on what journalists ask, pitch tips, contacts and gave me various options for what I can follow up with next.”
