MEDIA OUTREACH AND COMMUNICATIONS
"Amy combines a sensitive and deeply human approach to journalism with a hunger for the truth. She has placed op-eds for us putting unique focus on gender inequality in Africa, published by Al Jazeera, and has documented the systemic reasons for the boom in counterfeit drugs in Africa for an article written on our behalf for the Financial Times. She is a trusted colleague in all of our daily conversations with clients and the media." Gavin Serkin, founder and managing editor, New Markets Media & Intelligence, London.
"I was struggling to get an article on menstrual hygiene published and I reached out to Amy. She whipped the article into shape, sent it out to her network and it was syndicated by a news agency within 12 hours. Amy is such a professional. I contacted her on a Sunday, she didn't ignore my message nor complain. She put my needs before hers and for that I highly recommend her."- Ida Horner, chairperson of Let Them Help Themselves, London.
"Amy worked on a press release for Macadamia Conservation Trust (MCT) for an important story which received coverage across Australia and around the world (UK Daily Mail, South African macadamia industry journal, Australian print and online). Amy wrote the release, supplied media contacts and gave tactical advice on sending it out. The good media coverage helped raise the profile of Macadamia jansenii at a critical time for attracting support for post-fire recovery efforts. I hope we can work with her again soon." - Denise Bond, executive officer, MCT, Australia.
"I had the privilege to work with Amy on the launch of the Goalkeepers Youth Action Accelerator. Her work is brilliant and thanks to all the promotion this opportunity attracted over 2,000 applications" - Elisa Novoa, CIVICUS, South Africa.
"Amy Fallon is an editor's dream" - Megan Clement, former managing editor, Women's Advancement Deeply and Women & Girls Deeply, News Deeply
"Amy was a highly impressive journalist who was always very astute in immediately identifying the underlying crux of any story. Amy's articles did a great job of raising the profile of the Uganda refugee crisis, and was a strong advocate for the plight of refugees in Uganda. Never one to pull her punches, Amy often immediately identified the questions that were at the core of the issue" - Charlie Yaxley, media and communications officer, UNHCR
"Amy's writing has garnered exposure for our projects in news outlets around the world. She was the rare journalist to really understand our work, to dig deeper to get the key quotes and to pursue projects to publication. She's a globe-trotting journo with a fearless, can-do attitude. You'd be lucky to know her, and even luckier to have her write about you" - Paul Falzone, executive director at Peripheral Vision International (PVI)
"I have seldom in my career worked with a journalist as systematic and meticulous as Amy. Amy is curious, a brilliant researcher and journalist with the ability to tell a compelling story of a highly technical process. I cannot recommend her enough - both as a freelance journalist or a full-time writer/researcher" - Skye Grove, group manager communicator, Right to Care and EQUIP at Right to Care
"Amy is smart as a whip, curious, asks terrific questions that get to the root of an issue and cares so deeply about the topics and people she chooses to cover. She lives and breathes her work - if only we could all be so dedicated. It's truly been a pleasure to work with Amy on several occasions. If you're lucky enough to work with her, you will absolutely feel the same way!" - Jessica Love, former vice president, communications, The Fistula Foundation
"Amy was the first journalist to write international stories on AFRIpads for top-tier media in Australia and Canada, including the Fairfax Daily Life website and Chatelaine magazine. The stories were written to a high standard and led to increased visibility and opportunities. Amy continues to write about AFRIPads and menstrual health management (MHM) for global outlets and remains a champion in the campaign against period poverty all around the globe." - Sarah Sullivan, marketing and communications lead, AFRIPads
