“Working with Kerry and her team has been invaluable and an eye opening and exciting experience. Kerry is fantastic at her job. I valued Kerry's ability to listen, her attention to detail, and after offering me a detailed consultation - her willingness to expertly develop a meaningful and bespoke media training, coaching and advisory package for me. This helped meet my specific learning needs and improve my confidence in front of the camera and on radio.
"While working with me, Kerry was clear in her directions, honest in her constructive feedback, and showed a energising willingness to work with me. Through her patience and encouraging interpersonal style she helped me to step outside my comfort zone and into the world of media.
"Since working with @KerryHopkinsTV I have been on Netflix, Channel 5, BBC 10 O'Clock News, BBC News Channel, BBC London TV News, BBC London radio, BBC Radio 4 Today programme, the Metro newspaper many times, the Sun newspaper, the Guardian newspaper --- to name a few
"Because of my editorial appearances, I also feature as the psychologist on many TV series such as "My Lover, My Killer" on Netflix, "Sex on the Couch" on BBC 3 and other shows.
"It is a step that I am glad that I have taken and I am enjoying the experience of seeing where our work together will go I would recommend Kerry to anyone who wanted to really develop their media presence regardless of their level of media experience. I look forward to continuing working with Kerry."

“From the very first moment I met with Kerry Hopkins I knew that her incredible knowledge & expertise, her fierce work ethic and her passion, would propel us to a new level. However, she has already exceeded even that lofty expectation! I would recommend that any individual or business who wants to improve their positive exposure should work with Kerry Hopkins.
“Today in March 2019, we have only been working with Kerry Hopkins for 2 months, but we have already achieved tangible success. Our staff are buzzing and the place has literally exploded with these phenomenal results, our website has seen a big spike in views in one day by 4,000% in one day and my own personal biog page on the website increased views by 3,100%, our message has hit millions of people and we have seen a big upturn in enquiries and sales. We partnered with Kerry Hopkins company - Broadcast Ready PR - initially to gain us media exposure, but the partnership has since grown to them also taking over all of our PR – including our social media, our website, SEO, strategic partnerships, events, press and broadcast and all of our financial service's external communications.”

“Kerry Hopkins's company, Broadcast Academy, lives up to its name – Kerry made sure I was ready for TV interviews by coaching and teaching me to trust myself and bringing out the best of me. I was forced onto TV against my better judgment, and after a short while, I started to enjoy it and I was in demand. The sheer high volume of interview opportunities Kerry Hopkins brought me was astounding. But Kerry never let me get ahead of myself and she issued honest feedback, which kept me grounded and broadcast-ready! Thank you Kerry because if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have the media presence that I have!”
Former Chief Investment Officer now NED, Formerly TD Direct Investing and Virgin Money
“Kerry successfully completed her MA, a few years after graduating as a PG Dip student from City, in TV Current Affairs. To get the masters later requires real hard work and commitment as well as brains and Kerry has them all.
"Her film and dissertation was on Women in TV Comedy and she got funny, imaginative interviews, door stepping Ian Hislop, and with access to commissioning editors at high levels. Kerry is a great worker, capable of really original stuff and unexpected thinking. But she is also down-to-earth and straightforward and comes up with original ideas."

"I first met Kerry at during preparations of O2's sponsorship of North Pole Solo 2002. My involvement was as expedition photographer and expedition spokesperson hence my close involvement with JCPR and Kerry.
"The media coverage of the expedition went global and the PR return based on advertising placement of O2's sponsorship was some 40 times more than the original investment! Kerry's help and guidance during this fast-paced event was attentive, concise and spot on. We continue to keep in touch and liaise on projects.”
