I’m very pleased to recommend Catherine at Strike Communications.

She has a wealth of PR and Comms experience across a range of sectors, a level head and a strong work ethic. She is an easy person to work with and unfailingly supportive of clients,there is quite simply no one I’d rather have at my side during a media storm.

Catherine is immensely insightful and a brilliantly strategic thinker, and it’s safe to say her work will have a lasting legacy at the university.

I can highly recommend Strike Communications. Having worked with its founder, Catherine Frankpitt, in many guises over the years I have found her to be professional, knowledgeable and able to articulate an often complex message in layman’s terms. She is clearly passionate about communications and will go above and beyond her remit to provide a great service.

Mary Martin

Marketing Director, Business West

Catherine is a delight to work with. Her strategic approach to communications means that she is able to quickly interpret the brief and offer up creative and innovative solutions. When we launched our sustainability strategy, Catherine helped amplify our voice across numerous channels, to ensure that the launch had the maximum impact in the local and regional market.

Toby Moseley

Senior Marketing Manager, Willmott Dixon

Having worked with Catherine on the Bristol Young Heroes Awards, I found her to be a fount of all knowledge relating to communications, marketing strategies and public relations campaigns. Catherine has real caring credentials and wanted to support our CIC so that Bristol became a better place for our young people. She has extensive contacts and knowledge that helped us to control the flow of information between both organisations and the general public.

Her professional, friendly and interested approach meant communication with Catherine was extremely easy and she really helped to supercharge our activities and have maximum impact.

Amy Kington

CEO, Community of Purpose

Catherine arrived at UWE during a period of transformational change. We were focusing on creating a very different type of university – one that was embedded and connected to its region, but global in its reach and outlook.

Catherine grasped the agenda, shaped a completely new narrative that translated our brand and what we said about ourselves. She supported our engagement with the media and expertly navigated social media, press and interviews providing excellent briefings and focus in very sensitive areas. Catherine is a joy to work with.
She is professional, caring and dedicated and I intend to ensure we continue to work with her on projects that are designed to drive us forward.

Professor Steve West CBE DL

Vice-Chancellor and President, UWE Bristol

It’s not often I find people who are able to unscramble and intelligently articulate the thought processes in my mind – but Catherine is one of those. The ability to translate process to people and extract the key messages is a strength of Catherine’s and it has always been a pleasure working with Catherine over so many years.
I have worked with Catherine as a customer, supplier and collaborator on different projects and each has worked really well – efficiently, professionally and thoroughly.
