At UHY, we’ve been working with Liz Cartwright and her team for nearly six years now. We've found the team at Cartwright to be responsive and proactive in helping UHY gain a more regional and focused profile. We’ve worked with several team members over the last six years, all of whom have been creative and helpful in developing our regional profile and allowing us to showcase UHY further within the East Midlands business community.

I’ve had the pleasure to work these guys on a campaign and found it to be a really enjoyable experience - Great communication both digitally and face to face. Look forward to working with you again! :)
@Cordelia_Hearts, Content Creator
The media coverage was amazing and I want more of it for all our sites in the future and none of the PR companies we have used in the past has ever given me an evaluation report. I can’t wait to show it to the board.
Sue Crimes, managing director, Gusto
The webisode was really professionally managed and produced. The Cartwright team helped us get the very best from the interviews and we have had excellent feedback from our clients and partners.

The relationships that the Cartwright team have with the regional press is fantastic and ensured that our message reached thousands of readers, and the content that they created for our social media channels was always engaging. Their robust reporting also helped us quantify the ROI from our PR activity.

I’ve been dealing with Cartwright Communications since 2014. The team are really hands on and understand their clients well – they’re always willing to help and are very approachable. The press releases they produce are also of a high standard and digitally-focused, which is ideal for the digital age.
Dan Robinson, former business editor, Nottingham Post
We initially engaged Cartwright to support with the messaging around our purchase of The Lawn as we were carrying out some controversial renovations of the Grade II listed building. Our hope was that the Cartwright team would be able to help us deliver a positive message to a wide audience – they achieved this goal and so much more. What started out as a three-month engagement, lasted for more than two years as we quickly realised the value of having a company so well connected on our side, promoting the Stokes brand. Their approach was friendly, professional and added a great deal of value to the business.
Nick Peel, Stokes Tea & Coffee
This campaign was ideal for us as it required minimal input from our team at this busy period and it really helped to raise the profile of potatoes by promoting healthy debate across the country.
James Truscott, Branston
We were thrilled to receive such widespread national attention in such a short space of time. It’s been great recognition of our own fantastic team and the challenges they’ve risen to during the coronavirus pandemic.
Lucy Atkinson, Church Farm Care
It has been great working with Cartwright Communications on the Get Busy Living Centre project. They got what it's all about from our very first meeting! They are very professional, effective and fun to work with!

Great social media presentation at our Local Shows Conference this week. The audience was engaged from beginning to end and the time flew by. It was pitched just right with something for every level of expertise and our Show team certainly picked up some very useful tips.
Ūna-Marie Palin, administration manager, Newark Showground
Thank you for all your good work on the Newark Wonderland campaign. The campaign was very well received by Councillors, businesses and members of the public. The partnership approach seemed to work particularly well. There are certainly some impressive statistics and public comments that prove the value of the campaign. I imagine it will be a contender for a PR award or two.
Richard Huthwaite, tourism marketing manager, Newark & Sherwood District Council
I take no hesitation in recommending Cartwright Communications - Liz and the team are a pleasure to work with they are super proactive and responsive and their formal reporting to us is clear and regular... oh and working with the them is great fun too !

Thank you to Rosie and the team who have not let go of this opportunity and ensured we achieved outstanding results.”
Rosemary Conley CBE, Facial-Flex
Cartwright Communications managed the invitation process of the event, ensuring bloggers knew what time to arrive and that they were using the correct hashtag. On the night, they were also on hand to support the intu team when it got busy. Our intu Victoria Centre Christmas bloggers event was a complete hit. The atmosphere at the event was really lovely.

I have worked with Cartwright for more than ten years and the team are always helpful and responsive. The recent website update was just what we were looking for and the help, guidance and ideas offered made the process straightforward and effective. They have achieved one of our main objectives by putting us on the first page of Google. I can happily recommend the team at Cartwright.
John Moxon, Clegg Food Projects
We started working with Cartwright Communications when the Carrington Gardens development was in its construction phase. We are delighted with the work delivered by the team and their PR efforts definitely assisted in increasing the footfall to site and ultimately the reservations that have been secured.
Chris Parkinson, Longhurst Group
Their integrated approach to campaigns has been fantastic from securing column inches and working with online influencers to creating engaging social media content. When it comes to trade PR, Cartwright keep an eye on the trends and opportunities helping us to raise our profile within the industry as a leader in our field and know exactly what journalists are looking for.
Jackie Baker, communications manager, Branston
We started using PR for the first time only a few short months ago. Not knowing really what to expect, we were guided through the maze by the Cartwright team. I have to admit, I was taken aback on the attention to detail and creativity of the team. PR has opened up avenues and angles to our prospective markets we didn’t even think about. The Cartwright team has really raised our image and profile within our sector to the point where business associates are noticing a difference. Permaroof has featured in many magazines as a result, which has not only shown the industry who is behind the company, but boosted my confidence, to a level where I cannot wait to be in the next. My advice to you if considering PR is to give it several months to really get going. Once you have a number of stories behind you they all seem to compound and give weight to your ‘big picture’ story. It only takes a short while but is definitely worth the wait. I have really enjoyed my journey so far and cannot thank the Cartwright team enough and I'm really looking forward to working with the team over the next several months.
Adrian Buttress, Permaroof
Without Liz and her team, it’s unlikely we would have received outline planning as soon as we did. Cartwright’s work goes way beyond public relations. Their hard work and tenacity and their ability to work, with ease, with stakeholders and the community is exceptional.
Robert Ware, Conygar Investment Company PLC
Three years after set up, Baxter Freight needed to update the company’s vision and narrative to align with its evolution. We worked with Cartwright to update our PR and social media communications strategy to amplify the new company image and messaging to relevant audiences. Cartwright also developed a new website and assisted with refreshed branding. Cartwright worked with our team through every step of the process, while coming up with new ideas for helping to communicate our messages. We were really impressed with the company’s professionalism and guidance and would confidently recommend them to businesses with similar requirements.
Ian Baxter, Baxter Freight
Nottingham’s bid to become European Capital of Culture in 2023 required the very best so we were delighted to have Cartwright Communications on board to support with the regional and local media. They integrated seamlessly with the project team and effectively supported in communicating the projects key messages to the people of Nottingham and the East Midlands.
