Our Work

Case Studies


Suzanne has a fantastic ability of being able to quickly understand political issues at play and subsequently roll out a coherent PR and communications plan that has always yielded fantastic results (both short and long term). Specifically I recently commissioned her to undertake a Media Audit, Report & Guide for the Royal School of Church Music. This key piece of work also resulted in us building long term relationships with a key media player that had not engaged with us at all until Suzanne stepped in. I would highly recommend her for her outstanding PR and communication skills, her commitment to detail, and always completing the job with fantastic results – often with very little notice from me and many last minute.com requests.

I worked with Madalene for over a year on developing and implementing a PR strategy for my small business. Not only is Madalene incredibly professional, reliable and passionate about supporting businesses to share their story in the media, she is a genuinely lovely colleague and a joy to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending Madalene and Summerhouse PR to any individuals or businesses looking for Media and PR support.

The CES trade show built up its international prestige between 2003 until today thanks to great professionals such as Madalene. Her insight into the changing UK media landscape and the personal relationships with journalists are very much appreciated as we go into our third decade of cooperation.”

“They are true all-stars in every sense of the word and working with them is an honor and a privilege. No detail is ever too small for their watchful eyes yet they thrive on big-picture strategy, and pride themselves on making a client’s job EASY! They have been instrumental in helping us spread the good word about CES for years through their top-notch relationships with all the right journalists, especially in the technology and lifestyle realm. I simply don’t have enough time to say all of the wonderful things I’d like to about this dynamic duo!”

“We asked the team at Summerhouse PR to promote EUclaim in the UK using both traditional and social media.

David Gilbert, European Technology Editor,  International Business Times

“I have worked with Madalene Whitson for many years and have always found her to be organised, proactive, communicative and a genuine pleasure to deal with. As a CES alumnus, my annual expedition to Las Vegas was always made a little easier and more bearable thanks to Madalene and her uncanny ability to make the trip as smooth as possible for UK journalists.

Madalene is also a very accomplished event organiser, having helped bring CES to the UK in the shape of CES Unveiled London. As well as putting key journalists in front of CES heavyweights like Gary Shapiro, Madalene also ensured that some of the best and brightest in British tech innovation were on hand. Madalene also arranged a discussion panel at CES Unveiled London focusing on innovation and entrepreneurialism in the technology industry, for which I was one of the panelists.

Madalene has all the attributes of a great PR person, both in terms of servicing her clients and delivering what journalists need, and I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone.”

Riyad Emeran, Editorial Director, Dennis Publishing

“It’s always a pleasure to deal with Summerhouse PR. Madalene is super-efficient at supplying the required information on deadline and keeping journalists up to date with the latest news. As well as being professional and efficient, she’s extremely enjoyable to work with.”

Libby Plummer, Freelance journalist, editor and copywriter

“When it comes to the women at the helm of Summerhouse PR, let me simply tell you that this matriarchy is State Of The Art.

They listen,  they happen to be utter sweeties and yet hilariously, there seems to be this adamantine core… as hard-edged business-interested as any accountant. It’s refreshingly honest an approach and as well as feeling spoilt rotten with the level of being ‘looked after’ as a press person under their wing, you get the feeling that they keep ahead of what’s new, even if just to show off!

The main thing is the oldest chestnut. These clever cookies do in fact know everybody.

And yes, I am biased, I adore them!”
