Testimonials from journalists

“Broadcast Ready is an excellent resource for journalists – especially for those seeking to widen out the number of contributors they use. It offers a good range of diverse voices on different subjects. Kerry is fantastic to deal with and has a can do attitude – she’s always happy to help. She’s especially passionate about diversity and increasing the number of women and BAME guests used by broadcasters” – A BBC Television News editor

“Broadcast Ready has been really great for me in the past year, at coming forward with some great guests, particularly women, on stories that I’m working on day to day and having someone that just brings me an expert guest, is really helpful.” – Naomi Kerbel, Bloomberg Television

“It’s vital that women, particularly those in business, are seen as experts and authority figures. Some firms already support the idea of more women on their executive boards and it would be great if this were to be reflected in the spokespeople and experts fielded on TV and radio programmes. Broadcast Ready will help those companies do this, and will help build confidence and broadcasting expertise for the female experts of the future.” – Professor Lis Howell, Director of Broadcasting at City University London, co-founder of Expert Women and Special Advisor to the House of Lords Inquiry about women on air

“Broadcast Ready is a unique concept this industry has been crying out for. It will lead to greater choice of male and female experts for journalists and introduce many more expert women to the world of broadcasting. With quality a priority, it offers a win on all sides.” – Faye Nickolds, ITV News Programme editor

“It’s great to have a ‘one-stop shop’ for interviewees who are ready, willing and able to talk in an engaging way on camera.” – Angus Walker, Correspondent, ITV News

Client Testimonials

“Through Broadcast Ready, I’ve had more broadcast media opportunities than I have had in the past year – all in within one month. Kerry’s a whirlwind of energy who is passionate about interviewing her clients to improve their skills. With her guidance and training sessions, I feel so much more confident.” – Gina Miller, Brexit High Court winner and Finance expert, www.SCMdirect.com

“My client, leading businesswoman Nikki King OBE, former MD and now Honorary Chairman of Isuzu Truck UK, has only been on Broadcast Ready since January and she has already been lined up for BBC News and Sky News to discuss the budget. I would not have got Nikki on these programmes without Broadcast Ready and I strongly recommend their services to other PR agencies and major corporations.” – Nikki King OBE 

“We are really delighted to work with Broadcast Ready. We’ve worked very closely with Kerry and her team over the past six to nine months, and we’ve had fantastic results” – A Director, leading polling firm

“Thanks for an excellent media training session today. Great to see you in action. You really know what you’re doing here. Great choice of team too with Angus and Chris” – Jacqueline Abbott-Deane, Tactix Consultancy, the change management consultancy firm that serves  FTSE 100 corporations.

“I got on BBC News and Sky News a short time after signing up. Broadcast Ready provides an excellent service for experts with something to say to a bigger audience, but without the contacts or experience to break into the world of television.” – Dr. Steven Fawkes, Energy Pro

“I appreciate the role that Broadcast Ready has performed that has resulted in TV news and online video interviews. In my case it has introduced me to a new generation of journalists who could not be expected to know me from my commentaries on earlier crises in the Middle East.” – Professor Rosemary Hollis, Middle East Policy Studies, Department of International Politics, City University London

“Broadcast Ready has been very proactive in alerting us to new opportunities and we have secured TV news interviews as a result of this. This raises the profile of the Royal Aeronautical Society and shares our members’ knowledge and expertise.” – Emma Bossom, Royal Aeronautical Society

“Kerry has helped me improve the profile of our company by securing me for the Papers Review on Sky News as well as introducing me to some extremely useful networking organisations which has resulted in on-going contracts. She is extremely honest. If she feels something isn’t right she will say so. She doesn’t take your money if she doesn’t think she can help, so the advice and backup you get is great value and very successful.” – Diana Mather, The English Manner

“Kerry successfully completed her MA, a few years after graduating as a PG Dip student from City, in TV Current Affairs. To get the masters later requires real hard work and commitment as well as brains and Kerry has them all. Her film and dissertation was on Women in TV Comedy and she got funny, imaginative interviews, doorstepping Ian Hislop, and with access to commissioning editors at high levels. Kerry is a great worker, capable of really original stuff and unexpected thinking. But she is also down-to-earth and straightforward and comes up with original ideas. – Professor Lis Howell, Director of Broadcasting, City University London
