“I have worked with Eleanor McGillie and her team at MGMPR Ltd on different initiatives. Eleanor has a passion for making things happen, and, like me, she loves the food and drink sector. Her passion to deliver key messages is commendable and the fact she and her team are all media law trained journalists, editors and PR consultants, with a full range of multimedia devices available to them, means you know the job will be done.”

“MGMPR Ltd has been employed by Markethill High School since September 1, 2012. The brief involves enhancing and developing publicity about the school for local media and ensuring the successes of the school are made known to new audiences, through both ‘traditional’ media and new social media opportunities. In all our dealings with the company, they have acted with clarity, diligence, sensitivity and initiative. Nothing has been too much trouble. I highly recommend MGMPR.”


James Maxwell – Principal of Markethill High School

“Eleanor is an absolute pleasure to work with and understands how effective a good relationship between a PR and journalist can be. Eleanor is a rare example of someone who always responds in such a positive way and is always willing to meet, take a call or email despite her very busy workload. Nothing is too much trouble for Eleanor and she is hugely professional, extending her time and journalistic expertise when required. I have no hesitation in recommending Eleanor and look forward to our continuing working relationship.”

Ryan Martinez – PR and Marketing Consultant

Gary Topping – ITS New Media

“I was introduced to Eleanor McGillie from MGMPR through a business associate just under a year ago to look at PR for one  of my clients.

“MGMPR Ltd is currently managing our media campaign for the Celtic 7 Marathon Challenge involving myself, owner of Worldwide Financial Planning and Stephane Delourme, Head Chef of the Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant. We needed multi-media PR support from MGMPR Ltd to tell the story of our challenge. The challenge has gained coverage in newspapers, radio, magazines and on digital platforms. The fact that the team are journalists and editors means their storytelling skills are spot on and they use their contacts, locally, regionally and nationally to get coverage.”

Andrea and Rob Edlin – Niddocks

MGMPR Ltd was appointed to do the PR for the Tour of Ulster 2015 cycling race which took place over the May Bank Holiday Weekend.

The event attracted almost 150 elite cyclists from across the globe. In spite of the heavy rain and strong winds calling off the race on the second day – the event was a huge success and gained fantastic coverage in advance of the race, during the event and after the event.

Due to the adverse weather conditions, our team were totally on top of the story all weekend for our colleagues in the media so journalists could report the most up-to-date and relevant information. As soon as anything happened – journalists knew about it!

Denise Watson, a sports journalist for UTV, U105 and the News Letter, very kindly shared these kind words with us.

“My first contact with Eleanor McGillie was for the Tour of Ulster cycle race in 2015. She took over the PR of the event this year and it was very useful as a Sports Journalist to have someone to call and email regarding times and stage results.

“In the past, for TV and radio bulletins, I was scrambling around websites and social media hoping that the information was correct as it’s vital that my scripts are accurate. From the start of this year’s event, I had Eleanor and her team to call upon when I had a question.

“She was courteous and nothing was too much trouble. But the most impressive element for me was how she understood my job as a journalist. I have encountered PR companies who are driven by their agenda. Eleanor patiently asked me what my needs were and understood how vital it was for me to get up to date and accurate information.

“I believe it’s because she is a trained and experienced journalist herself. I look forward to working with her on future events.”  Denise Watson, UTV /U105/News Letter Sports Journalist.
