Juliet Herd, HELLO!

International Managing Editor

Michelle proved to be a talented interviewer and writer as well as skilled videographer, and was responsible for creating Hello!’s first in-house video content for online. Michelle was a delight to work with; efficient, highly organised, self-motivating and a great team player. She showed initiative and always went beyond her required duties with good humour, diligence and grace.

Victoria Hensen, Peretti Comms

Managing Partner

When looking for an expert to present Peretti's presentation training session, we wanted someone with a natural flair in public speaking, and who could make this nerve-wracking subject fun. Not only does Michelle have the experience and background, she also made it a productive interactive session, pinpointing challenges and helping find solutions for each individual. A thoroughly enjoyable session, it was also extremely insightful and each of us learnt something new to put into practice!

Jane Housham, Press Manager

University of Hertfordshire Press

Michelle worked closely with our author to prepare her manuscript for publication. She followed a brief to make the work ready for publication while preserving the spirit of the author’s prose. In carrying out this task, Michelle worked with the utmost respect for the author’s words while bringing out qualities in them that could easily have been lost.
