I worked with Angela for many years as a colleague at the Bolton Evening News and, more recently, she has taught writing and reporting skills to journalism students at UCLan. Angela is the complete professional – always reliable, meets deadlines and strives for the highest standard in any task she takes on. However, what has always struck me about Angela is her ability to communicate with people from all walks of life and to put them at their ease. In teaching, she soon developed a rapport with students, giving them constructive feedback on their work and valuable careers advice. Her classes were always prepared meticulously, delivered with enthusiasm and well received by the students.
I have been very happy with the contacts, ideas and columns that Angela Kelly has written for my magazine. Her work has been enjoyed by our readers and has had a positive input to Fifty Plus magazines. I look forward to working with her in the future.
Angela Kelly is one of the most efficient and reliable journalists in the North-west. She can turn any feature around very quickly and always delivers to the deadline. She has an in-depth knowledge of the region where she has worked for decades, is versatile and accurate. I have come to rely more and more on her journalistic skills and she never lets me down. In fact, she is one of the main contributors to the ‘Lancashire’ magazine.
Angela Kelly is an excellent journalist who I have known from the time she worked on The Bolton News as a feature writer and Women’s Editor. She has written a compelling and lively weekly personal opinion column for this daily newspaper for many years, which has been well received by readers. As well as her weekly page, Angela has supplied many news stories and features on a variety of subjects for The Bolton News, harnessing her vast local knowledge and writing talent. Angela also provides a good point of contact and liaison for many local groups and is a conduit which helps to get their news to the wider community.
Having commissioned Angela to write many features, I can confirm she is a creative thinker, a font of fresh ideas and a true professional who always produces tightly written, informative, often revelatory pieces that are completely accurate, error-free and ‘page-ready.’ In this fast-paced journalistic world, where content is king irrespective of medium, editors will increasingly come to rely on speedy, trustworthy content generators like Angela.
We commissioned Angela to write a newspaper article for us to celebrate our business’s fifth anniversary. Not only did Angela write an excellent piece she also used her connections to ensure it was published in The Bolton News within a week of it being written. In addition (and at no extra cost) Angela suggested other formats for newspaper articles and not only coached us as to how to write these but also volunteered to read and edit the article once written. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Angela for all types of press releases and media work – very professional and value for money.
Angela is an ace when it comes to finding the story and making it newsworthy. She sees an angle and knows how to best present it and to all the right people. If you’re wanting your business or organisation seen and talked about in the right circles, Angela is the best I’ve come across, having used her services regularly over the past few years.
Angela is great at the freelance work she does. She is innovative with her editorial ideas and has the right contacts within the press industry.
Angela has been superb in helping me to promote my women’s networking business Unique Ladies. Since working with her we’ve had great coverage in publications and online across the North West. Angela has a great ability to listen and turn some basic information into a really interesting story.
I have known Angela Kelly for a number of years. Her insight into the world of public relations and media is second to none. Angela has given me and my clients valuable advice and support. Angela worked with me to re-write our company website to ensure it communicated directly, without jargon, and put across our personality rather than soundbites! I highly recommend Angela and if you are looking at improved ways to communicate with clients and prospective clients.
