I worked on artist campaign with Olivia for 2 years and she was excellent - highly motivated, organised, creative and a pleasure to deal with. Recommended!
— Peter McGaughrin - Redlight Management & Chess Club Records
...Hugely creative and digitally-savvy, with a strong network of creative contacts and a really broad range of digital skills
— Nicola Spokes - Fiction Records/ Caroline International
Her creativity is always what stood out for me, her ideas were always the most exciting and she was constantly exploring new ways to promote our artists in unique ways. She has a love of new technology and innovations which was shown through her campaigns with Haim and NIN. Alongside this she always built great relationships with management and artists.

... Bursting with creative, disruptive ideas and brings a passion to her projects and artist relationships that bands and managers love

Olivia is a great person to work with, her enthusiasm and drive is inspiring.
