What Dare to Be Seen graduates say…?

Victoria Lysaght

I kept seeing women getting PR and wondering how they achieved it. I wanted to learn how to get PR for my own business and make people aware of the work I was doing. I enjoyed watching Jo’s videos because she seemed very down to earth, approachable and knowledgable. I liked that she was a Northern lass! I think it’s a fantastic course and I haven’t seen anything similar. I was nervous of visibility and unsure of how to share my story in the right way. Coming away with a media bio that has been edited by Choc PR was hugely useful, also learning how to write a press release is invaluable for a small business wanting to get in the local press. I loved being put forward for PR opportunities as they came in from journalists.

I appeared in Metro News Strong Women campaign. I also loved that Jo and Jo were so supportive and encouraging, believing in your value and your story which gives you more confidence to put yourself out there. Knowing I have the tools required to promote my business using a pro-active approach. I’d really like to get some coverage that mentions my actual business too rather than just my personal story so I might plan that around International Women’s Day.

I would definitely recommend Dare To Be Seen to female business owners. It’s an empowering course that provides you with the knowledge, tools and contacts to manage your own PR now and in the future. The Choc PR believe in your story, nurture and encourage you and give you the confidence to shine.

When I came to the programme my confidence for various reasons was at rock bottom and I was doing everything I could to avoid being visible – that has all changed now! I signed up following meeting Jo and discovering the importance of PR in another group. I have always hidden away behind my logo and brand and it was time to uplevel and get visible in my business. I just loved Jo’s energy and knew after my first call that she was the right person to help me shine a light on my story and my business. I loved the support from other members, and both Jo’s. I loved the guests in the group, it was really helpful to identify those areas of why I was hiding. The depth of content was excellent and the learning objectives really clear. I have now been published in national media and it feels amazing – this has also given me the confidence to really show up in my business and push forward with new services and charging my worth – I am now excited about getting even more visible – people will be sick of the sight of me lol

I signed up for the Dare To Be Seen Programme because I wanted to overcome imposter syndrome –  I was a shrinking violet.
I was absolutely blown away with the value and the fact you helped us with our media bios weeks after the course was complete and I still ask you for advice!
I’m going to get myself into the media and share my business with as many people as possible
Thank you so much, Love you ladies

It has been a pleasure working with Chocolate PR. They have generated some great leads to help me get into the public eye. The ‘Dare to be seen’ course is definitely worth it. It helps one overcome ‘imposter syndrome’. It is an excellent way to get to learn about the PR world. I feel more confident to introduce myself as the founder of Serene Lifestyles my company to the world of social media. They are a very professional team to work with and continue to assist in guiding a person to successfully fulfil their dreams. Thank you lovely ladies for all that you do. Thanks so much, xx

Jo and the team at chocolate PR helped me get visible and seen. Without their direction and guidance, I would never have written my press release or been featured in articles. The whole process was supported and they hold your hand through the whole journey to ensure you become ready to be seen. I can’t thank them enough for helping me get visible and for all their support. Thanks so much.

Abigail shares her experience on how PR has transformed her business…
I was sooooo nervous about PR 2 years ago. I feared judgement, I feared negative publicity, I feared being seen for my success. Now I use PR as a regular tool within my business to showcase my results for clients, to share my expertise and to have a voice as a female entrepreneur inspiring other women globally. Once I realised it wasn’t all about me and PR was not an ‘ego thing’ -it’s about supporting others through sharing your knowledge and story, everything changed.
