“I have been trained by Kerry on her broadcast PR course. One thing that is certain is a saying that they always used to use for New York University where I did my undergraduate training. If you give a man a fish you feed him for the day but if you teach him how to fish you feed him for life. I feel like I've learned quite a bit about how to fish for media contacts and perform from my home studio, so much so that I got myself on BBC TV national news several times as a legal expert on the Britney Spears conservatorship story and the Ghislaine Maxwell/Epstein stories.”

"By week 5 of working with Kerry on the Level Up in Broadcast course, I made 592% return on my investment. I also got myself on TV and in the press soon after starting. I'm learning so much about how it works and taking Kerry's guidance really to the letter. Kerry gave me a lot of tips and tricks just to get really prepared for the moment, that moment you're on TV. I have so far been on ITV News, Reuters, the Metro and the Mirror amongst other business titles. I find the coaching calls really enjoyable, I get to chat with the crew, it's a really nice little community."

"I give the Level Up in Broadcast programme 10/10 and 5 stars for content, relevance, accessibility, ease of us and approachableness. It's great to be on the programme and to benefit from Kerry Hopkins's specialist knowledge. Kerry Hopkins delivers in a warm engaging manner and gives real examples. I am really enjoying being on the programme and being coached by Kerry. I love the website platform, love the fact the videos are different lengths. Some of the videos I can just listen to rather than watch which means I can multi-task which is a great use of my time."

"I'm really enjoying being on the Level Up in Broadcast programme and the course. It has really helped me feel more confident and I feel much happier because I’ve got the right kind of things to say. I've got on radio twice early on in the course and since then I've been on BBC TV News, BBC Radio 4 Today programme, BBC World, the BBC website and BBC local radio thanks to Kerry's teachings. I'm looking forward to sharing my ancient history and archaeology knowledge to millions of people via the power of TV and radio."

“Working with Kerry and her team has been invaluable and an eye opening and exciting experience. Kerry is fantastic at her job. I valued Kerry's ability to listen, her attention to detail, and after offering me a detailed consultation - her willingness to expertly develop a meaningful and bespoke media training, coaching and advisory package for me. This helped meet my specific learning needs and improve my confidence in front of the camera and on radio.

 "While working with me, Kerry was clear in her directions, honest in her constructive feedback, and showed a energising willingness to work with me. Through her patience and encouraging interpersonal style she helped me to step outside my comfort zone and into the world of media.

 "Since working with @KerryHopkinsTV I have been on BBC 10 O'Clock News, BBC News Channel, BBC London TV News, BBC London radio, BBC Radio 4 Today programme, the Metro newspaper many times, the Sun newspaper, the Guardian newspaper --- to name a few

 "It is a step that I am glad that I have taken and I am enjoying the experience of seeing where our work together will go I would recommend Kerry to anyone who wanted to really develop their media presence regardless of their level of media experience. I look forward to continuing working with Kerry."

"I am currently on the Level Up in Broadcast programme and I give it 5 stars. I have found the small suggestions really help and motivate me, as in the bespoke ones that Kerry gives me, and the ones in the videos. My confidence has increased since I started this course. I love the website platform that the On Demand part of the course is delivered on, and I love the images used. The thing is, the whole thing feels actually 'real.'"

“From the very first moment I met with Kerry Hopkins I knew that her incredible knowledge & expertise, her fierce work ethic and her passion, would propel us to a new level. However, she has already exceeded even that lofty expectation! I would recommend that any individual or business who wants to improve their positive exposure should work with Kerry Hopkins.  

 “Today in March 2019, we have only been working with Kerry Hopkins for 2 months, but we have already achieved tangible success. Our staff are buzzing and the place has literally exploded with these phenomenal results, our website has seen a big spike in views in one day by 4,000% in one day and my own personal biog page on the website increased views by 3,100%, our message has hit millions of people and we have seen a big upturn in enquiries and sales. We partnered with Kerry Hopkins company - Broadcast Ready PR - initially to gain us media exposure, but the partnership has since grown to them also taking over all of our PR – including our social media, our website, SEO, strategic partnerships, events, press and broadcast and all of our SJL Insurance Service's external communications.”

“Kerry Hopkins's company, Broadcast Academy, lives up to its name – Kerry made sure I was ready for TV interviews by coaching and teaching me to trust myself and bringing out the best of me. I was forced onto TV against my better judgment, and after a short while, I started to enjoy it and I was in demand. The sheer high volume of interview opportunities Kerry Hopkins brought me was astounding. But Kerry never let me get ahead of myself and she issued honest feedback, which kept me grounded and broadcast-ready! Thank you Kerry because if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have the media presence that I have!”

“Kerry successfully completed her MA, a few years after graduating as a PG Dip student from City, in TV Current Affairs. To get the masters later requires real hard work and commitment as well as brains and Kerry has them all.  

"Her film and dissertation was on Women in TV Comedy and she got funny, imaginative interviews, door stepping Ian Hislop, and with access to commissioning editors at high levels. Kerry is a great worker, capable of really original stuff and unexpected thinking. But she is also down-to-earth and straightforward and comes up with original ideas."

“My client, leading businesswoman Nikki King OBE, former MD and now Honorary Chairman of Isuzu Truck UK, has only been working with Kerry Hopkins since January and she has already been lined up for BBC News and Sky News to discuss the budget. I would not have got Nikki on these programmes without the Broadcast Academy and I strongly recommend their services to other PR agencies and major corporations.”

“Kerry has helped me improve the profile of our company by securing me for the Papers Review on Sky News as well as introducing me to some extremely useful networking organisations which has resulted in on-going contracts. She is extremely honest. If she feels something isn’t right she will say so. She doesn’t take your money if she doesn’t think she can help, so the advice and backup you get is great value and very successful.”

"I first met Kerry at during preparations of O2's sponsorship of North Pole Solo 2002. My involvement was as expedition photographer and expedition spokesperson hence my close involvement with JCPR and Kerry.

"The media coverage of the expedition went global and the PR return based on advertising placement of O2's sponsorship was some 40 times more than the original investment! Kerry's help and guidance during this fast-paced event was attentive, concise and spot on. We continue to keep in touch and liaise on projects.”
