Copywriting testimonials and reviews

"Kate has been a pleasure to work with. Proactive, patient, and adept at distilling the key elements of a story for a range of audiences, Kate has been a great fit for us. It’s rare to find a copywriter who can write with flair, respond to shifting deadlines, and coordinate with customers with sensitivity and warmth. Charity Bank is a straightforward loans and savings bank, but some of the messages we need to communicate through our content are more complex. Kate has helped us communicate these messages in a lively and interesting way, whilst remaining true to our tone of voice. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for copywriting projects." Claire Penney, Marketing Executive, Charity Bank


"Kate is more than just a copywriter. She’s a storyteller that brings brands to life, giving them a voice with which they can create and maintain connections with their audiences. She’s also very responsive and fun to work with. Highly recommended." Kat Gilbert, Brand Manager, Food Thoughts

"Kate took over as editor of Venture magazine in December 2022. From the very start, Kate demonstrated that she had a vision, aligned to our own, for the direction of our client magazine. She took the time to meet with us, understand our readership, and listened carefully to our brief. As a result, she has refreshed both design and content to give us an improved publication for our clients to enjoy. Her accuracy, attention to detail, and ability to meet our deadlines has impressed us. Venture magazine is an important representation of our company and its values; we are so pleased that it is in Kate’s very capable hands, and look forward to our future working together." Sharon West, Marketing and Charity Events Co-ordinator, Atkins Ferrie Wealth Management

"Honestly? There's no one quite like Kate. I first worked with her on a Hoxby project for Unilever where she wrote numerous personality-filled blog posts for the client's Cleanipedia website. From the start, what stood out was her instantly engaging writing style and careful attention to detail. So when I needed a feature writer for one of my current clients, I knew where to turn. Kate has now put together several excellent articles and spot-on case studies for us. She always nails the brief, delivers on time and requires minimal editing. I told you there was no one quite like Kate." David Roberts, Co-founder, elevate content marketing

"It has been an absolute pleasure working with Kate on the new Hospiscare website. When we decided we would need to restructure or update almost every page on our (huge) website, we knew we’d need an exemplary SEO-trained copywriter who was willing to work closely with all different types of stakeholders to get the project finished. Kate was that and more. She went above and beyond to create fantastic copy on a vast range of topics, from sensitive areas such as bereavement support to fun-filled subjects such as organising fundraising events. She was an integral part of the success of this project, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a copywriter who really knows their stuff!" Natasha Douglas, Digital Manager, Hospiscare

"​Kate worked to create a tone of voice that really brought my client's brand personality to life. From very little, she was able to craft and help tell the brand story in a much more engaging way. The tone of voice now captures the right way my client wants to communicate and we love how it sounds and feels. She was great to work with, collaborative, but creative and able to get it right first time. Working with her was easy & enjoyable and I look forward to more opportunities to do so in the future!”

Claire Kong, Marketing Consultant, Nelipot Consulting

"​Kate wrote the copy for my website. From the moment I gave her the brief she just ‘got me’, she spent time understanding who I was and what I wanted to say and then delivered it spot on. I made no changes at all - I couldn’t believe it! Her service was fast, efficient and she answered any questions I had. I would definitely use her again." Tanya Sturges, Phoenix Coaching

"It has been a pleasure working with Kate on my web content. I was struggling, feeling despondent and stuck but Kate injected the life that was needed to create a website to be proud of. She took the time to get to know me and created content that completely represented my voice. Kate delivered on her timeframe and I would have no hesitation in recommending her, you will be in safe hands." Jamie Styler

"Kate worked on a large editing project for Cambridge Assessment – rewriting a 7,000 word guide aimed at educators across the globe. I found her to be diligent and a pleasure to work with. She completed the project on time and within budget. I will definitely consider her for future editing and copywriting projects." Bene't Steinberg, Group Director, Public Affairs, Cambridge Assessment

"With 144 pages of new web content to create we knew we were going to need some external support. I was nervous about using a freelance copywriter; the nature of our work and the tone of voice we use is extremely sensitive and something that is not easy to pick up quickly. I needn't have worried. Kate spent time getting to know the organisation, reading our previous work, asking questions and getting a real understanding of our audience and what we needed to communicate. She worked quickly and was incredibly responsive to any changes which were required. We're delighted with the final content and would not hesitate to work with Kate again in the future." Rachel Bell, Associate Director of Marketing & Communications, Rowcroft Hospice

"Kate Duggan is incredibly driven and passionate with a natural 'feel' for communications channels, copywriting and comms planning.

"Kate is a brilliant writer and it was a joy to work with her on my website. She dived into the project with minimal help from me and started creating excellent material straight away. She was fast and proactive, delivering high-quality writing at every turn. I was always impressed with her insights - she brings great intelligence to her work. Kate also went above and beyond what's required to meet tight deadlines. All through the process, I found her to be receptive to feedback, friendly and very easy to talk to. I'm delighted with her work and I recommend her highly!" Mira 

"When I need copy for my website, the first person I thought about was Kate.  I had worked with Kate in the past and knew her work to be excellent. Approaching Kate again was a no brainer, however being a popular copy writer my only thought was that she might not be able to fit me in.  Being a true professional Kate not only fit me in, but produced excellent prose on time, as she said she would. I couldn't recommend Kate highly enough. Tanya French, Buff Body Meals


"​Kate Duggan helped us with a large web project for an education provider. 100 pages needed to be rewritten in just over a month. We were really impressed with Kate's work. Kate was efficient, friendly and delivered just what we were looking for. We will definitely consider using her again." Heather Pilkington, Bluestone360 

"I was getting a bit despondent with our search to find a really 'switched on' copywriter. Kate right from the start (and consistently throughout working with us) has been honest, hard working, enthusiastic, polite, but most of all professional.  My company focuses on innovation. Trying to explain how potential concepts would work to strangers (ie via a website) can be an uphill struggle and very frustrating when the respondents are not interested. Not so with Kate Duggan. She is extremely adept at 'cottoning on' and delivering quickly, promptly and professionally first class copywriting. Her cheerful manner made it a joy to work with her and I would not hesitate recommending her or appointing her for future copy writing we might have." Cliff Graves, Owner Trainwell Limited

"Kate Duggan has been blogging for Big Green Smile for several months. She clearly has an extensive knowledge of sustainability issues and her articles are always well-researched.

All in all, Kate’s a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending her services." Gemma Chase, Big Green Smile​

The articles are well researched and her style of writing is very easy to read. I would be very happy to recommend Kate to others." Graham Higgins, Griffin Chartered Accountants

​"Kate Duggan is an absolute pleasure to work with. We turned to her for social media content and we’re so pleased with the quality and range of her work. It’s valuable to find someone who truly understands the health, fitness and environmental industry; she delivers work that shows such key knowledge that’s relevant to our existing and potential customers in a time and cost effective manner. It’s helped to get the word out of our natural skincare company, and it’s been a great way to grow our business online!" Narynda Skincare

"I am forever indebted to Kate! When needing a proofreader for my new book at very short notice, Kate didn't only pull all the stops out so she could put herself in the position to say yes, but also managed to deliver on all fronts. Her feedback was invaluable - clear, insightful and she managed to spot all the rogue typos that had crept into my work. All in all she was both efficient and effective and helped my book to be a better one (any remaining errors will be totally down to me!). On top of that, I felt an instant connection with her. If I had three words to describe Kate? Personal, professional and productive!" Ann Skinner, Coach to Contribute

We’ll definitely consider working with her again.” Charlotte Maxwell, Director of glo pamper ltd

Kate Duggan is one of those very rare and special people; quiet, unassuming and prodigiously talented. Her work ethic is also second to none, as she proved on a million occasions in the face of some frankly ludicrous deadlines. I’d have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her to anyone who needs a conscientious, affable and incredibly skilled wordsmith." Simon Ricketts, Creative Director at Gingernut Creative

Thanks Kate!" Cath Harris, Drive Creative
