DonovanPR adapts and brings fresh thinking to these campaigns."

"Donovan PR provided a range of services to the NZ Forest Owners Association as part of the development and implementation, of our national promotional campaign. This ranged from strategic advice through to project management of an advertising campaign. In all areas we very pleased with the professional, and prompt, support we received. I would have no hesitation in utilising their skills again."

"I had the pleasure of working with Liane Donovan and her team for seven and half years. She was a true partner to our organisation, delivering sound, seasoned and expert advice. Proactive, highly creative and quick to respond, Liane constantly exceeded our expectations. Her great relationships with media helped NPNZ to establish a strong profile and become a recognised industry commentator.
Her depth of understanding of the industry has been invaluable and her professional handling of issues when they occurred was faultless. Liane was well respected by the Board of Directors and member companies. She was always flexible to the needs of the business, showed foresight and dealt with us in an open and honest way that was refreshing."

"I engaged Liane to develop our public relations strategy and media campaign for New Zealands first mass stop smoking month, in its pilot year - 2014. The Stoptober Challenge had to be very inclusive of Maori and Pasifika, while also reaching the rest of the country's smoking population and we had a very short time, just 8 months, in which to do this.
Liane helped us achieve a fantastic result - more than 150 unique media stories across all channels, giving the campaign widespread national awareness as well as impact with our target audience. She was also an absolute pleasure to work with: highly professional, collaborative, supportive and cost-effective. I can't imagine the campaign achieving such a result in its first year without her almost daily support and widespread media networks."

"I've enjoyed working with Liane Donovan and Kirsten Wyllie over the past fifteen years, during my time at Tourism Australia and Destination New South Wales. Both Kirsten and Liane have extensive skills in strategic public relations, media relations, corporate and marketing communications, crisis management and event management. They have been vital members of my marketing and PR team, often going the extra mile and delivering excellent results. Their straight talking, honest approach is refreshing.
Very thorough in their approach, they provide innovative ideas and valuable strategic insights. They have excellent project management skills and can deliver great outcomes within tight budgets.
They are highly professional at all times and work hard to deliver results even with challenging time-frames."
