“I’ve worked closely with Francesca Baker since 2016. She is a great asset for the Margate Bookie festival and charity. Francesca is highly skilled in many different areas, so I’ll focus on three specific ways she’s helped us with her copywriting talents: IDEAS – Francesca is a constant source of new ideas for PR and social media. When an organisation’s inspiration is disappearing, she’s got the tools and techniques to boost creativity. Time and again she’s crafted campaigns that raise profile and sell tickets for our festival. She gets the message across and connects. IMPLEMENTATION – Francesca turns strategy into reality. In four years she’s grown us from a single room with a 100 people to a festival that attracts 2,500 to Margate. Our coverage – from local websites to nationals (the Guardian, This Week and the Independent) – reflects her strong work ethic. IMPACT – Francesca has got us coverage on radio stations, glossy magazines, newspapers and social media. She has a deep pool of high quality contacts. She’s helped us strike deals with publishers, authors, book clubs and training venues. Her optimism and calm attitude means she sees opportunities that others miss. I strongly recommend Francesca to all of you who want an imaginative and professional PR and marketing expert by their side.” – Andreas Loizou, Margate Bookie
“Francesca’s ability to write engaging and creative copy (based on very little information) is second to none. A professional, talented, diligent, thoughtful (and fast I must add!) copy writer with exceptional eye for detail and a good story. Really hoping to work together again in the near future!”
Shelly Naylor, The National Lottery
“Francesca’s been writing for le cool for a couple of years now and she very quickly became a vital part of our team. She has excellent ideas, writes about them beautifully and her work is always accurate and on time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for any kind of writing gig.”
Mat Osman, Le Cool
Francesca has supported me in several projects for International clients over the last few months and produced excellent creative copy with an absolute minimum of guidance. She’s quick to understand the brief, easily takes feedback on board and always delivers on time. She’s a great resource and a really nice person to work with. Francesca is a both creative and analytical, which is a winning combination when it comes to meeting clients’ communication needs. Her writing style is fresh and up-to-date – at times arresting; at times humorous. Always interesting. Moreover, she’s a reliable supplier who always delivers on time and within budget. I’ve really enjoyed working with her, and plan to continue!
Joanna La Pluart, Crystal Clear Communications
In a nutshell: fantastic. It is very hard to delegate content in such a personal business as mine, but Francesca understood my tone of voice and expertise and communicated it greatly in the website. After eight years of doing sites for myself, using copywriters, etc, this is the one I am most proud of and the one I invested less time (by a country mile). She is fully in charge of my newsletter and I am amazed at the results, as well as looking after my social media, which is now one of my best sales channels. She is responsible, autonomous and highly caring for the work she does and the people she works with.
Francesca is reliable, efficient, enthusiastic, considered in her approach, a good and capable communicator, considerate, innovative, professional, thoughtful. She is experienced and skilled in all aspects of communication and uses language effectively and appropriately in the varied arenas that we employ.
Clare Scott, Lapidus
Francesca wrote all of our content for our landing pages and lead magnets. Very efficient and great communication throughout the process. It was a pleasure to work with Francesca, highly recommended.

“Francesca might be the hardest working copywriter and marketer I know. She has vast experience across several diverse sectors from wellbeing to tech, and takes pride in producing well-researched and authoritative copy. She’s a pleasure to work with, upbeat and full of ideas.”
Gemma Pettman, MICPR
“Francesca is a fantastic events manager. It has been a pleasure to have been involved with several of her London-based events over the past few years. Francesca combines a professional and diligent promotions ethic with a personable and friendly approach to the management of the various gigs and shows that she puts on. If Francesca is managing an event, I can guarantee that it will be well attended along with involvement of high calibre acts. I particularly appreciate that Francesca brings original and fresh twists to what can otherwise be an over-saturated marketplace.”
Andrew Worthley, musician
“Francesca is a highly skilled writer, pouring tons of creativity, enthusiasm, and energy into her work. Francesca has been assisting me with my writing within my business and she is a delight to work with, extremely accommodating and communicative, I highly recommend Francesca.”
Will Aylward, coach
Francesca is a highly impressive individual and working with her our events collaboration has been extremely exciting. Francesca is dedicated to her work and always delivers. I am looking forward to more collaborations and future successes!
Sarah Zazouk, events
I know Francesca for her writing when she prepared a fanzine for a Charity gig I was running. Her writing is always entertaining and reflects her infectious enthusiasm for everything she writes about.
Timothy Britten, music development
I was managing Francesca as a communications associate while contracting for OpenOwnership. Francesca is highly organised and always delivered on time and to a high standard. She was quick to get up to speed on new platforms and topics and managed to balance a wide range of programmes taking place in parallel which involved liaising with a diverse range of external and internal stakeholders. The work of OpenOwnership is highly technical and Francesca managed to assimilate new information quickly, while effectively prioritising the competing needs of the team. I hope we get to work together again.
