Amanda is a brilliant publicist. We have been working with her for almost ten years on many projects where she has planned and implemented successful campaigns in support of our output. Working closely with our client broadcasters, Amanda provides a key link between production company and broadcaster and is able to fill in the gaps when it comes to maximising promotion for programmes.
With strong contacts across print, TV and radio, Amanda is adept at securing interest in our titles and so far she has delivered coverage on every single part of our output since 2008. She is able to negotiate significant coverage to complement the programme transmission both on high profile single documentaries such as “Body Donors” as well as returnable series like "The Yorkshire Vet".
Amanda is a key ingredient in our team and provides a really fantastic, friendly, efficient service.
Exclusive Press & Publicity have provided us with professional PR support and expertise for over 5 years. During this period we have worked with Amanda Stocks on numerous media campaigns relating to bullying involving both adults and children. Amanda facilitated the introduction of our Ambassador, TV Celebrity Chelsee Healey and she worked closely with us through the launch of our anti-bullying song and media statements regarding our latest Ambassador, Actress and Journalist Debbie Arnold.
Whenever a national bullying or harassment story hits the news due to bullying in TV reality programmes such as Celebrity Jungle and Big Brother - or in more serious life-changing cases involving children or employees, Amanda has assisted us with our responses to both national press and BBC radio.
From a business perspective Amanda is a team player who has the skill and ability to grasp a situation quickly in order to meet those urgent, time critical, deadlines. She brings both clarity and calm to the table. Without doubt, Exclusive Press & Publicity have added value to our business and we recommend them to you wholeheartedly.
Amanda is an excellent publicist and we have worked together for a long time across business and personal publicity.
She handles every piece of press in an extremely professional manner especially when my son Valentino was diagnosed with cancer. It was a difficult time for us but Amanda handled the media and helped us tell our story in a sensitive manner. She is great to work with and it is hugely important to have her as part of your working team, I always will! Her working relationships with editors is excellent which in turn benefits her clients. I wish I could of worked with her 20 years ago!
I cannot recommend Amanda and her team more highly. I have never felt as safe as I have whilst being in her hands for both my career and publicity. Nothing is too much trouble for her, whether it be in business or your personal life, she will make sure you are looked after and happy.

Amanda Stocks from Exclusive Press & Publicity, has been a constant source of help and support to both of us and our family since our daughter Lindsay was murdered in Tokyo. Her advice and handling of all matters relating to the press, both in this country and Japan has been invaluable. We would certainly recommend the agency. They listen to you and act accordingly. She has handled all publicity on our behalf, organised trips overseas, helped with press statements in a calm, professional and sensitive manner. As a result of her work Lindsay’s murderer was finally caught. We don't know what we would have done without her.

Amanda from Exclusive was recommended to me when I needed help dealing with the media after the high-profile death of my daughter Natasha. She helped me and Natasha’s fiancé Mark Speight prepare for the inquest. She then had to handle the media following the disappearance and tragic death of Mark a few weeks later. It was a very difficult time for everyone, I had the nation’s media outside my door and without Amanda I couldn’t have coped. She is an angel in disguise and not only helped me but also my family.

Not only did she get me a great deal of publicity but she also got me a book deal and appearances on TV. She has also dealt with the huge media interest in me as I trained Coleen McLoughlin to get in shape for her wedding to Wayne Rooney – and I couldn’t be happier after high-profile pieces in leading magazines, TV and newspapers including The Sun and the Mail on Sunday and a column in Now magazine.
