I have had the pleasure to work with a very diverse group of professionals, many whom have really help to expose me to new destinations and story ideas that help to complement how I share the idea of travel. I am grateful to them for the opportunity they have given me, and also for their kind words on their experiences in working with me. Here is some of what they have to say:
“Finger Lakes Wine Country is thrilled to have Brave World Media as an extension of our in-house team. Carol and her team understand our brand and have successfully met deliverables in a timely and budget-conscious fashion. Their knowledge of the digital landscape has propelled Finger Lakes Wine Country forward, skyrocketing our social media presence and engagement in just a few short months. Their team remains current with trends, always thinking creatively to deliver top-notch results with a personalized touch. Carol and her team are a pleasure to work with and our partnership with them has been invaluable! – Christina Roberts, Vice President of Brand Development, Finger Lakes Wine Country Tourism Marketing Association
“Carol has been working closely with Atout France, the French Government Tourism Office, for more than 2 years, and has successfully completed a series of trips with us. Carol is a professional, reactive, an incredible solo or group traveler, and is always quick to assist us with any projects we send her way. She is punctual, flexible, and consistently delivers all required content both during and after completion of the trip.
Most notably, she has participated in Atout France’s Vitivini Wine Tourism campaign the past three years in a row and has proven to produce consistent and exemplary results, as well as high-quality and captivating content. This year, our wine campaign, which featured seven bloggers, generated nearly 20 million impressions. 1.7 million of these impressions were thanks to Carol’s active social media and blog postings.” – Tiana Rakotoson-Gomez, Product Marketing Manager, Atout France
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Carol on various trips to destinations I represent as well as hotel stays. She is always so professional and wonderful to work with! All of my clients have really enjoyed having her and asked me to bring her back which is not a typical request. While on her trips, Carol is a wonderful part of the group (if traveling in a group). She’s always up for anything, interested and enthusiastic about what’s in store and shows such a passion and excitement for whatever it is she is doing. She truly sets the bar high when it comes to bloggers. And her social media updates and coverage while on her trips gain such buzz and traction. Post-trip, her blog posts and stories are always so thorough and well-done. I would not hesitate to send Carol anywhere and everywhere I represent.” – Katie Barr Cornish, Principal 11*6 PR
“We engaged with Carol to stay with a hospitality client of ours while her family was embarking on an epic road trip across the country. Carol offered honest feedback on her experience that went above and beyond the type of engagement we had anticipated. Her refreshing spin on the property was not only well received by the hotel staff, but the entire corporate marcomm team. I’m happy to say we knew Carol before she elevated to ‘GirlGoneTravel’ celebrity status and it’s an honor to see where the road has taken her. If you want someone to tell it like it is about your product, brand or company…you need to connect with Carol.” – Dave Sniadak, Director of Visual Communications, Axiom Marketing Communications
“It is a pleasure working with Carol as one of the speakers at NMX and TBEX. She goes above and beyond to make sure her sessions are professional, engaging, and promoted well. I would love to work with her again in the future.” – Allison Boyer, Content Director at New Media Expo
“Carol is a true professional, go-getter and a pleasure to work with. I’m not sure how she does it all — mom, entrepreneur, blogger. She’s a great go-to person for understanding the blog world, what moms are looking for, and what to see in NYC! Her PR background makes her savvy to what readers are looking for, what clients need and what would be relevant to other media. My clients have been thrilled with coverage on her site and events she’s organized for them. I was happy to hear about the impressive awards she’s receiving. She deserves it!” – Mara Begley, Public Relations Freelancer
“We had Carol in our property last year for a Fam Trip, the result was amazing, nice pics, nice video but overall the way she describes the hotel facilities and the town was perfect. Great touristic journalist.” – Bruno Toso, Executive Chef, Balcones del Atlantico Rock Resorts
