Her research and constant updates on progress on anything that may have affected our business was most useful."

In recent years Jodie has also played a key role in oiling the wheels of UK/Israel bilateral relations through her extensive contact base."

David Sowells, Principal, Tricuro LLC

“I have no hesitation in recommendation Jodie Cohen. When we worked together in London, Jodie was my most hard working, diligent and committed member of staff. She is enthusiastic, intelligent, shrewd and ambitious. Crucially, she cares deeply about her clients and her employer, and is not afraid to go above and beyond to get results. Rare in a young PR consultant, she is not afraid to offer advice (as opposed to just raw information), and to back that advice with reason and evidence. She is a fair, firm and inspirational leader, with a kind personal touch when required. She's also a lot of fun. I would employ her again if I could."

Jonny McCaig, Global Reporting Director

"Jodie has provided copywriting support to Unilever for a number of years, specifically on the Sustainable Living Report. First and foremost, her writing is crisp, sharp and accessible. Jodie's in-depth knowledge of sustainability across industries means that she can convey complex issues in language suitable for specialists and generalists. She is extremely diligent, proactive and flexible. For all these reasons Jodie is one of our go-to writers and comes highly recommended."

Louise Ayling, Stakeholder Engagement Director

I’ve worked with Jodie for almost four years on numerous sustainability reports, from Lidl and John Lewis Partnership, to Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate and Chalhoub Group. She’s a brilliant copywriter with an in-depth knowledge of sustainability. This makes her an expert at picking up on the client’s required tone, writing everything from very corporate sustainability reports, to much more engaging and personal editorial-style documents. I particularly love the fact that Jodie avoids all the written clichés that too commonly fall into sustainability reports. Jodie is a pleasure to work with – friendly, professional, timely and flexible. I’d highly recommend her.
