"Jane's contacts, professionalism and tenacity have been crucial to the success of the Oxford Farming Conference. Thanks to her diligent approach and thoughtful understanding of our needs, she has extended the reach of the conference throughout mainstream national and farming media. The 2014 conference had record press attendance of over 100 journalists. We owe Jane a great debt of gratitude for helping us continue to elevate the conference as the UK's leading event of its type,"

Julian Gairdner, Co-Chairman 2014

Farmers Weekly

"Jane Craigie runs an outstanding PR operation. In the last few years of working with Jane, I have no hesitation in saying that her customer focus and understanding of the market truly set her apart. Jane has that rare quality of being able to contribute to the bigger vision while at the same time paying meticulous attention to the detail. Her work is of an extremely high standard because she is a good listener, highly responsive, a first class networker and incredibly resourceful. Her interpersonal skills are strong, which ensures that she is a great team player, collaborating positively and playing to the strengths of those around her. She also shows courage as a leader in challenging the status quo without being confrontational. This is a vital skill in an industry facing enormous challenges and significant change. My team frequently comment that Jane is a joy to work with and an inspiration,"

Jane King, Editor

BASF Crop Protection

"We have worked with Jane Craigie Marketing (JCM) for over 10 years. We were looking for an agency that could bring a wider strategic approach to our PR and constantly challenge us to improve our communications. Over those years JCM have become an integral part in the development of our communication strategy and we have greatly valued their commitment, wide perspective, creativity and continual improvements. The results have been excellent - and what's more it's been fun!"

Andrew Jones, Cereal Value Chain Manager

RAGT Seeds

“We first employed JCM to work on oilseed rape in 2009 and have since extended that to cover cereals and maize for the UK. Jane has a great understanding of UK agriculture which, coupled with her extensive network of contacts in the industry and farming media has raised the profile of RAGT Seeds and our portfolio. Her creative thinking and energy has brought a fresh approach to our PR, challenging our thinking and encouraging us to move outside our comfort zone. The speed at which she is able to turn things around is incredible and she is great fun to work with!"
