What People Have to Say:

Mark F. Schwab, CEO, Star Alliance

Star Alliance’s Round the World fare has been a major campaign focus for the Alliance. I would like to thank you for the support that you have personally given us to which has helped make the campaign such a big success.

This was the first time that Star Alliance worked with a selection of bloggers in this way – collaborating with multiple individuals simultaneously in a joint and coordinated approach. The visual assets you collected and shared during the trip added significantly to the impact of the campaign. We valued your personal contribution and we hope that it will not mark the end of our relationship with you.

Brandyn Hull, Director of Communications, Kimpton Hotels

We host a lot of writers who write a lot of stories about us but this was above and beyond. What a great way to tell the story of Kimpton Hotels. And the exposure has been unprecedented. We’ve seen dozens of comments from readers who say they are hooked and ready to book.  Thanks a million!

Lucy Ogilvie, Head of Content, Pearlshare

Megan has reliably produced bespoke content for our brand for the past couple of years, always on time and to a very high standard. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any other brands looking for an excellent travel ambassador.

Josh @ Cheap Fly Club

Since the blog post I placed on Mapping Megan I have gained 3,000 subscribers, 800 of which I can directly attribute to having come from your blog! A very successful review.

Linda Beltran, Director of Communications, Mandarin Oriental Washington DC

I would be remiss if I didn’t take the time to say thank you for the continued support of our hotel and the additional social media posts on Twitter, Trip Advisor and Facebook. I can truly say that you have provided such positive coverage on the hotel, and demonstrated a true sense of passion for what you do and the words that you use to “tell your story.”

Mark Berry, Owner, The Bower at Broulee

We really appreciate your glowing praise for The Bower and would add that over 17 years of operation we’ve employed quite a few photographers, “photo-journos” etc. and the selection you provided for us is the best we’ve seen, by quite a margin. Thankyou for sharing your photographs in Hi-Res.

Leslie Sonnenklar, Associate PR Director, RIESTER

Meg was a pleasure to work with! She was prompt in publishing her review of our properties and did an excellent job of really capturing the essence of each location. We were so impressed by her photos and recount of her experience and we got a lot of traction online from her review. We’d be happy to have Meg back at any of our properties.

Jill Wheeler, Owner/Director of Wellfit Institute

Megan Claire was a pleasure to work with from the moment we met and I asked her to be the first speaker of Wellfit Institute’s Adventure Speaker Series. I affectionately refer to Megan as the “down-to-earth” girl from “down under”. Her approachability, humor and humility combined with her worldly experiences and well-prepared presentation made her relatable and inspiring to both the doers and dreamers in our audience! Let her entertain and inspire your audience!

Emma Higgings, Gotta Keep Movin

If you’ve been hopping around the blogosphere recently and haven’t heard of Meg Jerrard, I don’t know what planet you’ve been living on. This girl is killing it at being everywhere at the minute, and with big plans for the future she’s definitely going places, and not just in terms of her travels!
