Copperkite Marketing Management
"I have worked with Justine on a project for the three Olympic equine disciplines (British Dressage, British Eventing & British Showjumping) since 2009. She delivers the copy exactly as requested for press releases, brochures and the website. The copy is easy to approve as she gets the tone right and this makes approval by the clients relatively easy. She's flexible enough to work with our evolving brief and delivers on time and to budget. Most importantly the campaigns work so her words are effective."
Aran Beesley, Managing Director.
“We have worked with Justine Harding on several different projects and have always found her to be enthusiastic to whatever task is thrown her way. Justine has a great 'can do' attitude and has an excellent understanding of the equestrian world. Justine is both professional and reliable and we would not hesitate to recommend her to any company.”
Jo Whittaker, Marketing Development Manager.
Your Horse magazine, Bauer Media.
"Justine is one of a rare breed - she's a talented all-rounder who isn't afraid of hard work. In the two years I’ve been working with her, Justine has proved herself as a news and features writer and also a highly organised and effective events editor. She’s written a number of features for me on all sorts of topics and also put together gear guide supplements from start to finish. In 2008 she worked with myself and our events team managing and co-ordinating our massively successful event ‘Your Horse Live,’ which is no mean feat.
I'd recommend her to anyone in search of a hard-working professional journalist or events organiser."
Julie Brown, Editor.
"Justine came to the rescue when we needed some copy writing in a hurry for a redesign of the British Dressage website. Her knowledge of dressage and down to earth approach helped to translate what could easily have been dry stodgy copy into lively, easy-to-read prose. She was quick, resourceful and professional and made helpful tweaks and suggestions along the way to improve the project. Her assistance brought the project in on deadline and we were delighted with the results."
Claire Booth, former Marketing Manager.
Forward magazine, Guide Dogs.
"Justine has contributed to Forward magazine, Guide Dogs' flagship publication for a number of issues, and has been a pleasure to work with each time. We are a small editorial team that pull the magazine together and having a resource such as Justine to call upon can be a life-saver! Her experience and excellent manner with people, mean I have no qualms about putting her in contact with senior members of staff across the organisation, our volunteers and supporters, and of course our clients. She always delivers on time and on budget. Justine is also great at offering value over and above the words on the page - for example suggesting ideas for design and layout, which are often very helpful."
Sarah Hebbes, former Editor.
Lucinda Green, Olympic medallist.
“This is the fifth year that Justine has produced my Petplan diary for me – she has a wonderful knack of sifting through all the chatter we share and coming up with a succinct 250 word appraisal of a 20-minute long conversation and just hitting the nail on the head.”
Lucinda Green, eventing Olympic silver medallist and former world champion.
"Justine edited Equine Express magazine for us for two years. She acted as a client contact, synopsising, commissioning and editing on behalf of Mediamark. During her time working with us, she was helpful, informative, knowledgeable and reliable, and always part of the team even when working remotely - an important factor in Mediamark's ability to deliver a first rate magazine to its client."
John Edwards, Creative Services Director.
Your Horse Live, Bauer Media.
“It was a great pleasure to work with Justine. She is always very professional and always hit the deadlines given. She oversaw all of the feature content for Your Horse Live 2008 and once onsite at the show, took it upon herself to organise all of the celebrities’ horses and the rare breed horses and built some good relationships with these people. We also launched two new features (Interactive Area and Learning Zone). Justine helped create these, and organised all of the demonstrators within these areas, which proved very popular with our visitors.”
Michelle Withers, Event Operations.
Your Dog magazine, Bourne Publishing Group.
“Justine has been a regular freelance contributor to Your Dog magazine over the past few years and helped us out for a year when a member of staff was on maternity leave. What works for me is that she is extremely versatile (taking on everything from subbing and proof reading to a wide variety of writing tasks), tackles everything with great enthusiasm, and always has interesting and creative ideas on the best ways to approach and present an article.”
Sarah Wright, Editor.
