Janine Lloyd

I founded PR Expert in 2013 with a vision – I wanted to create a consultancy that would provide high quality, personalised service and delivery without the hierarchy, structure and red tape associated with a larger agency. My vision was to create a place where professionals could do what they do best, in a flexible way outside of the traditional 9 – 5, office-bound agency model.  A place where client’s would benefit from more action, greater results and faster turnaround. As an entrepreneur with three decades of leadership and communications experience I bring with me a wealth of  business management, marketing and Public Relations expertise across many industries. I lead with vision, humility and confidence.

You are a leader and know what it takes to make it. You handle responsibility well and are the best at what you do. Where you lead, others will always follow.

Taryn O’Brien

I started my communications career in online journalism where I discovered my love of writing and connecting to people through the written word. Business minded, I naturally progressed into the field of Public Relations and Marketing where I have found a happy niche. A good marketing and PR practitioner knows that in today’s digital world access to your brand’s message, and reputation is a touch away from those who wish to build you up or break you down.

GOT: House Stark

You are a good person, and this is reflected in every aspect of your life. You have held yourself to a higher standard, and you always lead by example. You’re resilient and a born role model, and you will never take that for granted.

We can brag about the clients we work with,

but we believe what they have to say is more powerful.

“PR Expert’s PR strategy and media know-how has been invaluable to Coal Stove Pictures giving us massive business value, unprecedented return on investment and multiple awards, including a Global World Award.” Fidel Namisi

Owner, Coal Stove Pictures

“PR Expert impressed me from the word go! From the efficiency and energy in drawing up the plan, through to the execution. They have got Zinia more coverage than we could have ever imagined. PR Expert has truly gone over and above every time for me, and I would recommend anyone who’s interested in growing their business to use them.” Warren Bonheim

CCO, Zinia

“The service and care that we have received from PR Expert has been phenomenal. We are a small firm so we did not expect the level of service we received. The influx of business has been wonderful. I highly recommend PR Expert as they have made a huge difference to our business.” Judy Wilkins

Senior Partner, Wilkins and Associates

“PR Expert has been a great associate for many years. Our clients have always been happy with the results generated by them. The team is always organised, responsive, creative, energetic and committed to doing the best possible work for clients. They have a keen and hard-working team and I never hesitate to recommend PR Expert if people ask for a top class tech PR team in SA.” Lyle Closs

MD Europe, Axicom

“PR Expert delivered the Public Relations X-Factor with a very limited budget. They deserved to win Campaign of the Year as it was classic Public Relations with no Above The Line support, nor an established brand/campaign over time.” PRISMs judge Sylvester Chauke

Chief Architect, DNA Brand Architects

“Even though a liability insurance policy protects the Insured against their legal liability, there is always the risk of the Insured suffering reputational damage, following a loss. As part of Camargue’s commitment to offer a more comprehensive and innovative solution, Camargue frequently utilises the services of PR Expert. The result has been a very rewarding success story for both Camargue and its clients.” John Stebbing

Director - General Liability, Camargue
