Good work ethic and professionalism
Miriam Mokoena, Deputy Director: Content Development Government Communication and Information System - 28 July, 2022

“I worked with Allison (Ally) on the 2020/21 South Africa Yearbook – an annual publication that gives a comprehensive account of the programmes and policies of the Government of South Africa. She was proofreading designated chapters of the book on a freelance basis. Ally is a good editor who understood the brief as soon as it was shared with her. She worked hard on very tight deadlines, ensuring that the book was published on time. She was professional and continuously provided feedback on how far she was with the work, thereby managing expectations. While I gave her a style guide to help her meet internal standards, I was impressed that she already had hers, which assured me that I was dealing with a well-prepared professional. I recommend Ally for editing and proofreading work because of her good work ethic and professionalism.

Joey Lascelles: AGFO Expo and Owner of Jola Trade

It is easy to work with them, they anticipate your requirements all the way and are never shy to provide advice.  They are one of the best PR companies with very reasonable costs.

Professional etiquette a rare find!
Nicole Street: Owner Adnova Digital Architects

“I have worked with Allycats PR, as a supplier and as a customer, and in both areas working with Allycats has been nothing but a breeze. Cathy and Ally make a very dedicated, effective, creative and professional team, and they pay attention to every detail. Not only do I have the highest regard for their work, but their professional etiquette is also a rare find – they do not need to be managed, they are friendly, they work in record time without hassle, and you don’t need to explain every little detail – I believe their experience speaks for itself. I highly recommend working with Allycats for public relations, copywriting and social media projects.
