Here are just a few testimonials from my clients, magazine editors, freelance journalists and industry partners
"Excellent well done nice to see us in Homes and Gardens again."
"Alex works tirelessly to provide all the images and information requested well in advance of a deadline, and is consistently a delight to deal with."
Emma Hedges, Editor, Essential Kitchen & Bathroom Business
"Alex is best described as a precision instrument; sharp, focused, effective, fit for purpose. Like a precision instrument, she makes light work of very difficult jobs. Kitchen PR is certainly one of those; growing competition for limited coverage, means that her skills, experience and contacts are an invaluable asset."
Giles Kime - Executive Editor Homes & Gardens
"A passion for interiors is one of the biggest assets for a PR working in this sector, and Alex has passion aplenty. Her interest in her clients’ work and her understanding of their services and products is invaluable to us, as it ensures we receive accurate and appropriate copy for all our features. She is a joy to work with and one of a handful of names I know I can call on with a last minute request should the occasion arise."
Matt Blair - Acting Editor - Utopia Kitchen & Bathroom
"As always great effort on our behalf thanks very much."
Richard Edmondson, Chairman Edmondson Interiors

"Thanks for all your support and hard work this year, we've seen some great coverage."
Lisa Lalor, Tom Howley
"I went to see a client this week and she said I seem to be in every kitchen magazine she had bought over the last year! I then went to see her sister and she had a feature from last year and said she keeps seeing our work. I got one order from one client and I reckon I’ll get the other too. I just wanted to share this so you know that the work you are putting in does have an effect.
Your help and enthusiasm for our work really does help us reach people. Thanks for all you do."
Graham Barnard, Matrix Kitchens
"I was so impressed by your eye for perfection and your sleek working relationship with your photographer on the shoot today. Very impressive!"
Natasha from Vanessa Grape
"I have worked with Alex for many years, and always find her to be extremely professional and very easy to work with. Alex’s passion for kitchens shines through, she is enthusiastic about all of her clients, is incredibly persistent and does her utmost to get their projects published."
Clara Perry, Publisher
"Having known Alex for many years as a customer it was a great pleasure to work with her on the NEO Bankside pop up shop opportunity.
Right from the first contact her enthusiasm, knowledge and drive are apparent . She delivers what she promises and has a very balanced view of both sides of the working relationship."
Annie Sterry, Director Barbed
"As a young man starting out in the industry I was very aware of Crabtree Kitchens as a design led high end manufacturer. I realise now that the profile of Crabtree Kitchens was in no small part due to the excellent PR work carried out by Alex.
Over the past 12 months of working with Alex she has managed to elevate the profile of our company to a very high level with some excellent coverage, always in high quality publications. Apart from large features, including a recent 12 page spread Alex also manages to place a lot of smaller inserts. The large features really build the brand and the smaller inserts keep an constant ‘drip feed’ of the brand which is also so important.
Apart from being constantly professional and ‘switched on’ Alex is always bubbly and full of enthusiasm - it’s a pleasure to work with her."
Barry Sawyer, MD of Brayer Design
"Massive thanks to @alexcrabtreepr for her amazing help in 2013! Looking forward to working with you this year again!"
"Having worked with Alex for well over 12 months we can be confident in her work and her ability to obtain the best possible coverage for the business. Not only can we trust Alex to always deliver the best coverage but she is always more than happy to attend our showroom events and provides a real element of fun along with her professionalism."
Amy Smith, Marketing Executive - Tom Howley
"Alex knows the kitchen industry inside out, represents her clients in a professional and friendly manner and always follows up to check if they have been featured. She understands just what editors want and never fails to deliver before deadline."
Jo-Anne Wright, managing editor of Utopia Kitchen & Bathroom magazine
"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Alex for many years and she has consistently delivered on all counts — no matter how small or large the request and no matter how tight the deadline, Alex provides exactly what I need without fuss and always with her friendly enthusiasm. She is a true legend."
Hayley Gilbert, freelance kitchen and interiors journalist
"It's always a pleasure to deal with Alex. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable when it comes to kitchens but she also reacts quickly to any requests for images or information. And, importantly, if she can't help immediately she keeps me informed, which is crucial when it comes to deadlines. Most of all, she is always charming and friendly no matter how last minute the request!"
