Wordsmith has been privileged to work with some really fantastic organisations and leaders. Here’s what a selection of them have to say about working with Deborah and the team:

Wordsmith Communication delivered an outstanding level of regional, national and international media coverage for the launch of the first UK Digital Autopsy Facility in Sheffield. They more than met our challenge, to them, which was to embed the concept of digital autopsies within the UK consumer consciousness. The Wordsmith team understood how to create a narrative which would resonate with the media and our key audiences and they were extremely responsive, providing us with comprehensive support and guidance throughout a very high profile and busy launch period.

I would like to thank you very much for your real enthusiasm and dedication to get this right, you have clearly created something that we are happy to use and use widely.

Sandra Henson

Wordsmith currently manages the PR for Solihull BID. Deborah has very quickly got to grips with a vast number of projects we are working on, and has delivered an effective PR strategy in a very short space of time. She is clearly passionate about delivery, and is innovative, yet realistic in her thinking and her proposals. I can highly reccomend Deborah as someone who will always deliver, is supremely professional, knowledgeable and experienced in her field, and a great person to work with.

Project Director, Solihull BID

It was a real pleasure to work with Wordsmith. They responded quickly and really drove the process throughout. The perceptive analysis of our business enabled Deborah to deliver some great copy for our website that encapsulated the message perfectly. We are very pleased with the results (which arrived well inside the deadline) and will certainly use Wordsmith Communication in the future.

Jeremy Purkis
Director, Mallory Partners

I would personally like to thank you both for your hard work and for your dedication to the project. From working with you it became clear to me that it was not just a contract but more a team drive for Birmingham to succeed!

Lorraine Donovan
Head of Media and Promotion – City of Culture Bid, Birmingham City Council

Wordsmith has assisted our business undergo site restructuring. Deborah’s experience and practical insight into the process and insightful empathy for all stakeholders, was invaluable. Looking back at the process, Deborah’s input and guidance in creating – to demanding timescales – a comprehensive communications plan from start to finish has helped our business achieve its objectives and in such a way that people throughout the business have felt well treated by a caring and professional employer. I am very appreciative of Deborah’s contribution and would have no hesitation in engaging with Deborah as future needs arise.

David Sheridan
UK Country Manager, Aktiv Kapital ASA

Wordsmith Communication worked with Marketing Birmingham and Birmingham City Council to edit and shape Birmingham’s bid to be a host city for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. They worked as part of the team to understand what we wanted to achieve and how much the city had to offer. Wordsmith then took the work of some twenty different contributors and created both a compelling narrative and consistent voice for our winning bid.

Sarah Marshall
Campaign Manager, Marketing Birmingham


Deborah has a rare talent for listening between the lines to what you are thinking, when discussing a brief with her. I have no doubt Deborah has contributed significantly to the CEO I am today. She has a unique ear for hearing what audiences are saying and then creating the right messages in order to get engagement. When, on the rare occasion, we had to prepare for potential crisis she was one of the first people I wanted by my side. Her exemplary campaign management, crisis management, brand building and writing skills are second to none and without doubt will help any CEO she works with achieve high performance communications and brand building.

Paul Thandi
Chief Executive, The NEC Group and President, Solihull Chamber of Commerce


I worked with Deborah for five years across two high profile brands and found her experienced approach to communications invaluable. A genuine wordsmith and seasoned communicator, Deborah is able to quickly evaluate challenges and opportunities, offering both a high level strategic direction and the detail of the tactical response.
