Hi and welcome to my portfolio!
My name is Katie, and I’m a native English freelance copywriter with many years of experience in global travel, tourism, hospitality, architecture, interior design and sustainability niches.
Originally from England, I’ve spent many years living and working in the Middle East and Asia. As a seasoned writer, I craft engaging content to enhance brand awareness, press releases and formal social media content covering everything from luxury hotels to home accessories. My international background gives me a diverse understanding and empathy for different cultures, places and religions
I deliver timely, hand-crafted, top-quality content using the latest SEO techniques to exceed client expectations and achieve the best possible front-page rankings. I believe that storytelling is the most powerful way to communicate a message.
Clients include big-name brands such as Waldorf Astoria, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, Little Steps Asia, World Bride Magazine and Asia Lifestyle Magazine. My experience has enabled me to transfer these storytelling and language skills into the world of copywriting, editing and proofreading.
I’m a flexible writer and have penned content for sleep consultants, elephant sanctuaries, recruitment, luxury yachting and weddings. I've helped multiple clients translate their messaging into easily-deliverable content, including blog posts, marketing materials and bios.
If you’d like to peruse some of my work, I’d be delighted to send you some published samples. I can’t wait to work with you.
The recommendations say it all!
Sarah Motwali, Sumatra Cheeky Monkeys
"We hired Katie and QWERTY PR to write the content for our trekking and tours company based in Sumatra, Indonesia. After a meeting with Katie, I explained a little bit about our company and what we do and she created absolutely magical content- it was literally like she jumped into my head and recreated my vision into words. Extremely talented, professional and efficient and really takes the time to understand your business and what you are trying to achieve and as a result created our website content and soon to be all of our social media! Highly recommended"
Mark Silver, Travel Journalist
"As an experienced travel journalist having written about various properties and resorts throughout the world over the past 31 years, I am truly excited by the establishment of QWERTY PR.
I am excited for two main reasons: firstly, there is definitely a need for such a comprehensive and expert hospitality and travel-related company. Secondly, in Katie Hollamby you truly have a brilliant and vastly-experienced PR lady.
I have had the good fortune of working with Katie on numerous occasions during my extensive travels around the globe.
She always has been totally on the ball - whether it has been in hosting me in the likes of the Maldives, Egypt, Thailand or the UAE - and has ensured I was able to carry out a press trip with the minimum of fuss and fully able to experience the very best of the resort. The result was an exciting travel piece which ensured my readers were fully informed on their possible destination choice.
Having worked with literally hundreds of travel PRs during my long career, I can honestly say that no one has been as thorough, as professional, and as pleasant as Katie. The full package has been delivered in terms of the build-up, actual trip itself, and any subsequent assistance in writing up the piece. She has ensured that every trip, working in together with Katie, has been an absolute pleasure.
I have to say that some PR contacts have needed constant reminding, unnecessary chasing-up on my part, and other inconveniences. This has never been the case with Katie. An outstanding lady to work with.
I am confident she will ensure QWERTY PR delivers for her clients. It is an exciting company, an imaginative name, and offering key services that are crucial to the required job being successfully accomplished.
Words are vital in this world. What are we without words? QWERTY is much-needed.
And my word, I would strongly recommend using Katie's services".
Rebecca Weimer, Fjord
"The Word Consultant is who you want behind your PR efforts. Katie brings decades of international experience to the table; from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. It's rare that you find someone with such a diverse skillset who owns the strategy and thorough enough to manage the details. Her dedication, approach, and execution sets her apart and is the reason she delivers impactful results".
Iain Cooper, Ras al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority
"I've worked with Katie on a number of projects and QWERTY seems like a totally natural progression for her. Her enthusiasm and energy infuse everything she does with an honesty and integrity that is both compelling and credible. Add to that, her incredibly broad industry experience/knowledge and you have all the ingredients of a great PR partner".
