Testimonials

Bethan John of Wildlands Creative has worked with over a dozen different conservation organisations to help support and improve their communications. Discover what it’s like to work with her:

“I am impressed by Bethan’s astute insights on the successes and failures of conservation programmes on-the-ground. This is why I’ve hired her to research and write a publication on conservation communications. I am convinced that Bethan, with her background of working with so many NGOs, will excel at this challenge. She is young enough to still have incredible enthusiasm and energy, but experienced enough to know what is achievable. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
John Burton, CEO of World Land Trust


sebastian-herzog-armonia-staff-scientific-director“Bethan is not only a dedicated top-notch environmental journalist, she sure knows how to set up a classy, modern project website in WordPress as well – and teach you how to maintain and update it. So long to website designer bills! If that weren’t enough, she also gave us a great workshop on how to write professional blog posts and press releases so that our conservation news will have a much greater impact. The only thing I regret is that she had to move on after three weeks…”
– Sebastian K. Herzog, Scientific Director for Asociación Armonía, Bolivia


Sigrid Shreeve, author and campaigner at JabujicabaBethan has helped the Jabujicaba campaign from its first beginnings – not only with regards to written communications and visual media but also our hands-on stakeholder engagement programme, helping to organise and participate in events. She is passionately committed to conservation, generous and a joy to work with and always prepared to go the extra mile. Her hands-on-experience in Latin America has been invaluable to our campaign and Bethan has been able to communicate this effectively with a wide target audience. She always delivers on time and under pressure. Our social media presence and our website are testimonial to her commitment, knowledge and skills.
– Sigrid Shreeve, director at Voices for Nature


“Bethan was wonderful to work with. She gave the organisation a workshop on writing tips for press releases and social media posts. The knowledge she shared on Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and the importance of using Key Words was invaluable and I believe it has helped us increase interaction with our audience greatly.”
Camilla Barnes, Communications Coordinator for Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda, Mexico


“Bethan’s visit to Guatemala gave us the opportunity to acknowledge the point of view of our important donor, the World Land Trust, specially in the field of communication and fundraising. I’m personally grateful for her input; it gave our institution a clear view of what we can do and are now doing thanks to her contribution.”
Cesar Barrios, Head of Communications for FUNDAECO, Guatemala


“Bethan’s help was really useful to me; our website seemed to be a little difficult to manage but she took me through it step-by-step, solving all my questions and difficulties. For any institution, it is very important to have a fully functioning website, so thanks to Bethan I could understand and improve ours.”
María Cerro, Outreach and Communications Officer for Asociación Armonía, Bolivia


crispin-zeeman-earthwatch-institute“I hired Bethan to complete a proofreading assignment for Earthwatch Science Report. She was thorough and detailed in her review. Her edits were spot on and she and made many additional constructive comments which helped us complete the project with a better outcome than if we hadn’t had Bethan’s services. Bethan was fast, efficient, professional and a great choice.”
Crispin Zeeman, Head of Marketing, Communications & PR


“If you are looking for an experienced writer with specialist, first hand environmental knowledge, look no further. I was very please with the work Bethan did for me.”
Jonathan Self, author and journalist


 

“Durante marzo y abril de 2013 tuvimos la grata visita de Bethan John, quien se ofreció como voluntaria para darnos una valiosa capacitación sobre el manejo efectivo de la información y su publicación para web y redes sociales. Luego de trabajo en Bogotá y de compartir e intercambiar nuestras experiencias, Bethan viajó a la Reserva Ranita Terribilis ubicada en la remota localidad de Timbiquí. Luego de su visita, hemos tenido la grata publicación de varios artículos y videos que describen muy bien el trabajo que realizamos, exalta el trabajo ejecutado por los trabajadores en campo, explora el contexto social de la reserva y motiva la conservación de la especies. Esta información ha sido muy útil para nosotros pues nos ayuda a tener más herramientas para compartir con nuestro público y reafirmar el mensaje de conservación que buscamos difundir.”
Ivón Alzate, Head of Communications for Fundación ProAves, Colombia
