WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Having worked with Maryann over the last 18 months I can highly recommend her for your PR, copy writing or influencer work. She has extensive experience and her strong list of industry PR contacts has resulted in exponential coverage for BOS. Will Battersby, CEO, BOS Brands


When we first launched our business, we knew we would need a PR agency with specific experience because of our needs as a small start up and our focus on a relatively new tourism niche. Maryann was recommended to us because of her experience working with new business in sports and adventure tourism. We had a planning session before we embarked on a formal relationship and Maryann has delivered on everything we wanted. Our business has appeared in various media relevant to our target market and now we’ll be expanding our focus to other markets too. Maryann Shaw Communications has been a really good fit for Glamtrails. Gillian Faichnie, Co-founder of Glamtrails



The Ultra-trail Cape Town Team was looking to expand the coverage that the event received to more mainstream media, rather than focus only on digital marketing and social media. We wanted someone who understood the event but who was well connected and could create content that spoke to audiences other than the trail running community. Maryann was the obvious choice and we have seen the benefits of having a committed PR partner on board. Her attention to detail and her passion for finding stories is greatly appreciated and we love having her as part of the team. Sue Ullyet, Ultra-Trail Cape Town



We received coverage far beyond our expectations with Maryann. Torpedo is not only a new business but a new sport, and the mainstream media coverage that SwimRun has enjoyed has been a great boost. Front covers in both the Cape Times and Weekend Argus were two of our great successes this year. Richard McMartin, Torpedo SwimRun

Having a detailed, strategic and implementable PR plan is one of the key success factors to any marketing strategy. Trying to source a PR partner to bring our ideas and strategies to life was no easy task. We needed someone who was well networked, understood brand but more importantly could create relevant content for various demographics across many different walks of life. To date, Maryann has been consistent in delivering against her set deliverables and more. She takes a proactive approach to all that she does. Doug Bird, WILD AIR


We have worked with Maryann on two of our events, the KAP sani2c and Glencairn Trail Run. She takes the time to get all her facts correct as well as ensure that the relevant media houses are interested in the story and will publish it, thereby reaching the correct target market, ensuring maximum exposure. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with her! She is honest and extremely professional. Tamika Haw, KAP sani2c and Glencairn Trail Run


One of our best decisions to date was our signing with Maryann Shaw Communications for all our PR requirements. The well targeted media attention, hand selected and generated by Maryann on her first project with us was unprecedented against our experience. It realised exposure and value that far exceeded any reasonable expectations and we highly appreciate the personalised attention, genuine interest and high energy delivery of service. Ryan Stramrood, Extreme Swimmer and Inspirational Speaker



I have worked with Maryann since 2017, during which time she managed the PR and communications needs of the Cape Town Motor Show. It was incredibly successful and year on year our media exposure has increased, and the depth and breadth of the coverage has been significant and grew across all media channels. Managing media at the event can be challenging, but Maryann seamlessly coordinates media access and interviews. I highly recommend Maryann for any project that you may need. Garth Rhoda, Cape Town Motor Show
