Despite the terrible photographs of me that the Aussie newspapers now have on their files, I have nothing but positive thoughts of my tour downunder and your magnificent handling of the publicity was a key factor. Back here in the U.K. I am slowly adjusting to being unknown again. Tim Rice

Kerry and her team have done an outstanding job overseeing the publicity for the launch and in season campaign of Hairspray. Her dedication to this project has been inspiring. She has enormous attention to detail and focus, maximising all the opportunities she could conceive for this production. I have been particularly impressed with her ability to keep our production in the media long after launch – this requires not only great creativity but strong relationships – all of which Kerry possesses. Joel Pearlman, Producer – Hairspray Roadshow Live

The Marriner Group has worked closely with Kerry O’Brien Publicity on many high profile productions dating back to The Boy From Oz in 1998. Kerry and her efficient team always display the utmost professionalism and confidence, they are a pleasure to work with. It is evident that Kerry’s whole team has excellent relationships with media and their execution of proceedings such as theatrical media calls and opening night events is faultless.

From the outset of her 6 month long TV WEEK Logies appointment, Kerry O’Brien’s enthusiasm and creativity was obvious. Kerry took a new look at the Logies PR and as a result of her fresh approach, professionalism and amazing media relationships, it was the most successful, extensive and positive Logies coverage ever. We will be looking no further than Kerry O’Brien for next Year’s Logies. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Jo Matches, Marketing Manager – TV WEEK Logie Awards

As Neil Diamond’s publicist, I worked with Kerry O’Brien and her team for nearly a year on the planning and execution of his tour publicity campaign. As an American with limited experience in Australia, I depended on Kerry’s knowledge, experience, creativity and sensitivity. It was a trust that was well placed. I have worked with many publicists around the world in my more than 20 years representing touring artists and none have impressed me as much as Kerry. She was the rare mix of both creative and thorough, with particular attention to details. Her relationships with the media were impressive and invaluable. Her calm under fire, her great sense of humor, her ability to think on her feet and her genuine desire to help made the experience of working with her one of the most pleasurable and successful in my career. Sherrie Levy, International Publicist – Neil Diamond Tour
