Rebecca got hooked on the great outdoors at the age of eight – around the time she set her heart on becoming a journalist. She’s been doing her best to combine the two ever since, working on programmes such as BBC Wales’ Weatherman Walking and ITV’s Coast & Country and notching up four walking trails books. After several years as a staff reporter at the South Wales Echo, Rebecca worked as a freelance for many national titles before founding Chatterbox in 2016. Rumours that she chose our Taffs Well office solely for its view of Garth Mountain are completely founded.
Eve is one of our canny wordsmiths, so words are her bag*. With a talent for cutting through the hyperbole (big word), she loves to get to the heart of the message and help our clients communicate in a clear, engaging and approachable way. Despite having lived and worked in the Big Smoke, Cardiff girl Eve now spends her days happily working as a freelance marketing consultant and copywriter, mostly to support her coffee habit in and around Roath.
*although actually, bags are also her bag. And shoes as well, come to that.
Andy’s our guy in the north – quite literally. Firmly ensconced on a Cumbrian sheep farm (no, he’s not a shepherd), he’s had a love of the Great Outdoors since he was route-marched around the Lake District as a teenager. Seamlessly changing career from primary school deputy head to grizzled outdoor man many years ago, he’s now a whizz in social media, as well as championing accessibility in the countryside with his wife, Debbie, alongside Julia Bradbury and The Outdoor Guide. Andy’s also a documentary photographer and finds nothing more relaxing than being lost on a hill. In the wind. And the rain. And the fog.
Lesley’s the lady who makes our life easier, taking care of our admin with aplomb. She keeps us on well-organised toes, managing databases and schedules and ensuring we never miss a deadline. When not taking the ‘busy’ out of business for her Ty Cae PA and Office Services clients, Lesley loves looking after her animals and enjoys long walks in the countryside… just one of the many reasons she fits in so well around here!
“We don’t know what we’d have done without Rebecca at Chatterbox! From writing our website copy to providing advice on our advertising, writing press releases and template letters, Rebecca understands our needs as a small business and we look forward to continuing to work together in 2016 onwards as our business grows and evolves.”
“Chatterbox has helped steer our marketing direction, with the result of clear messaging throughout all our communication channels that have helped drive our sales efforts and brand awareness. I particularly like their approach in truly understanding our product, business aims and the diverse sectors we operate in. Their research was very thorough and I would recommend Chatterbox to those who need a trusted agency and a creative approach.”
“We enlisted Rebecca to prepare our newsletter when we wanted something fresh and that reflected our business. We wanted it to be informative but also a good read: Rebecca did everything we asked and we would have no hesitation in recommending her!”
“Rebecca recently wrote the content on my new website (www.edify.consulting) and, as expected, did a fantastic job, making my services, story and added value come alive. Rebecca proved that I made the right decision to employ a professional than to try and do it myself! I chose Rebecca because I’m a huge fan of her writing – her blogs combine info & fun seamlessly and her walking books are just so easy to read and follow – and she communicates on paper in such an easy going, conversational style.
I’ve had nothing but very positive feedback on the website & the content, of course, plays a big part in this.
It was a pleasure to deal with Rebecca (I knew this anyway!) and I can’t recommend Rebecca enough.”
“Working with Chatterbox has seen my business expand its profile and given me the opportunities that otherwise would not have been possible. They take time to learn about your business, understand it and then create a bespoke plan for your needs. Most importantly they are dynamic, refreshing and encouraging and their enthusiasm for your business is infectious!”
“Gocompare.com has worked with Rebecca over many years and she has always delivered high-quality, professional copywriting services, combined with a flexible, friendly and helpful approach to work. This has been evident across a wide variety of projects, including a major customer services initiative in late 2015 that needed Rebecca to liaise with a large number of key stakeholders across the business.”
“Working with Rebecca is always a complete joy. She takes all the time to understand clearly your needs and deadlines, and finds solutions when things are difficult. I have found her to be incredibly reliable, always completing the work to the highest standard, and she has great attention to detail and a real skill around crafting documents. Rebecca has always taken my work to the next level – I couldn’t ask for more!”
“We had worked with Chatterbox Communications before so, when we were looking for help to reach the next level of growth, they were the obvious choice. They have helped increase brand awareness and reach new audiences, giving us access to revenue streams we had previously not touched, which was exactly what we were looking for. A great service as always – thank you!”
“The blogs Chatterbox writes for us are always of a high standard and never fail to hit the mark. Rebecca is very thorough, with a real attention to detail, and always writes to the brief outlined.”
“I can’t praise Chatterbox Communications highly enough – their work is really top notch and it shows. I used to think that I could write a good press release but, if I compare my efforts with Rebecca’s, it’s like comparing DIY with the work of a time served craftsman or woman. Not only is she a great wordsmith but she knows how to pitch the right story, at the right time, to the right media sources. Rebecca is a great communicator and ensures that she keeps all the stakeholders in the loop. Her work is accurate and she delivers on time every time.”
“I am so pleased to have found Chatterbox Communications! Ever the professionals, they work to a structured process that ensures they are always thorough with work commitments and deliver on time. Their communication on projects is superb and using their copywriting services has allowed our own business to grow as we are able to offer these services to our own clients. I look forward to working on more projects together!”
“Working with Chatterbox has been professional, approachable and friendly. They understand the needs of my business and catered outstandingly with fresh marketing ideas. Due to Chatterbox I have had new business contacts and have even gained more motivation for myself within my business. Can’t wait to work together again!”
