PR and digital media management."We first approached Emina for some support with our social media efforts in the middle of 2017, and she’s proved herself to be an individual with a real passion for and knowledge of all things social. But more importantly, Emina demonstrated a much wider understanding of our marketing needs, which has allowed us to extend her brief. She has made many valuable contributions well beyond the original ‘social’ brief – and put simply, I can’t imagine how we’d coped without her now."
Digital media management, content creation and marketing"Emina was a valuable member of the marketing team, bringing her expertise and creativity to our social media platforms to engage with key audiences. She was agile and intuitive and was able to be very self-sufficient during really busy periods of work. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Emina and would not hesitate to recommend her".

Event support, case studies and video editing."Emina supported the planning and delivery of our national conference, bringing her enthusiasm and flair to making a busy day happen smoothly for everyone involved. She also assisted in the collection of case studies and stories of practice, and her warm and friendly manner put everyone at ease in the semi structured interviews. She's hardworking and keen to make a difference!"
Branding strategy, website management and workshops.
"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Emina on this challenging task of bringing together disparate understandings of Compassionate Cymru to present a coherent and useful website. We found the sessions and the ‘homework’ tasks, relevant, helpful and ultimately extremely productive in terms of finalising our website. We particularly enjoyed the way in which Emina facilitated a complex route which she made simple. She and her team of experts in the various technologies involved provided support, advice, ideas and choices which really suited the outcomes we needed. We love our new website and we’ve benefitted enormously from her patience and continuing support!"
Branding redesign project, digital media content management and event support."Emina was with us for a very important step for our company and without her, it would not have been possible at all! We rebranded our business completely and needed someone that would treat our business as their own and that is exactly what Emina did. She taught us so much about image, how clients look at us, the language we use and how to stay true to our values and I can't thank her enough for it as switching our focus to these things improved our business. On top of a completely professional approach to things, Emina is a great laugh to be around and always can give the team a boost when she was in. I would highly recommend her".
Brand Strategy"It was a pleasure working with Emina on our brand development, she was professional, creative, and insightful. I'd strongly recommend working with her and look forward to future projects with her".

Being dropped in at the deep end, Emina immediately showed her adaptability, foresight and expertise in the organisation of our international conference. Since then, she has led on our communications and campaigns work with passion, strong ethics and a sense of fun. Emina's focus on values and inclusivity have helped us reach new audiences and showcase many of Fair Trade's benefits including women's empowerment, living incomes and climate justice.

Content creation."Emina brings her energy, creativity and insight to her work. When we brought her in to work with Living Streets she developed a number of resources for our Local Campaign Groups ensuring that inclusion was centred in our messaging and narrative. We could literally give her the initial shaping of what we wanted and she did the research, developed the copy and made additional amendments at key stages based on our feedback. It was such a huge help having her support during a really busy time for us, inbetween appointing new staff and managing multiple projects. Her experience and total commitment to turn thoughts and ideas into tangible results made a real difference and we were very grateful to her for hitting the ground running and being so professional in everything she did"’

We needed a check-in on creative campaigning and campaign theory as we headed into our new year planning cycle, and not only did Emina bring practical ideas and solutions, but she also reinvigorated the team and bought some much-needed energy into our planning process and approach. Emina has such an interesting and varied background, and clearly knows her stuff, but it is her energy, warmth, her ability to get the most out of people that brings an extra bit of stardust to the room".

Digital media management and brand strategy."We needed help with getting our ‘brand’ out there and that's where Emina came into the picture, going back to 2017. With our focus being on the printing, courses and looking after our members we really didn’t have the time or skills to develop an online presence. Without a doubt, one of the best decisions we made as a small and developing business, was employing the services of Emina. She’s got this amazing ability to connect the dots between her extensive network and goes above and beyond. Really fun to work with".
