Having Frances ‘ help and support with raising awareness of a recent concert was just brilliant. It not only reduced the time I needed to spend on administration so I could focus on the music, but helped me feel less shamefaced about the sometimes uncomfortable but absolutely necessary business of self-promotion. I can’t recommend Frances highly enough; a proper musician who also knows how this side of the ‘business’ works

Frances Wilson has worked as Media & Marketing Manager for 7 Star Arts
for the last five years.
Frances has a unique combination of attributes and abilities combining pragmatic, administrative skills and an eye for detail with creativity and an ability to “ think outside the box” with a proactive attitude. She is diligent, hard-working, prompt and quick to respond, happy to ‘go the extra mile’ trouble-shoot and work beyond her remit when required. In addition, she has an in- depth knowledge of the music world and music networks.
I could not run my organisation without Frances and am delighted to recommend her highly and without reservation
Yvonne Evans, Director
7 STAR ARTS
I have been working with Frances since summer 2018 and I am highly impressed with her imaginative, organised and dedicated approach.
Frances has consistently worked to incorporate new and traditional approaches to reaching audiences and raising public awareness; her structured publicity plans are consistently updated and she has constantly compared her ideas with what I have been intending to achieve. She ‘moves ideas forward’ in a way that ensures that brainstorming sessions give value and realise results. Her sense of timekeeping is such that she is not caught out by publication or advertising deadlines and has time to optimise the actions that she has put in place.
Frances has high-level skills as a proofreader and considerable experience of producing or advising on effective publicity materials, a skill set that pays for itself many times over. An active and experienced musician, she has an insider’s feel for the material with which she is working and has plenty of interesting input for her clients to consider.
As a social media exponent, I would say that Frances is ahead of the curve, working tirelessly to keep her profile current and engaging for a wide range of networks.
Given all these aspects, plus her awareness of working economically within budget, I would have no hesitation in recommending Frances Wilson.
