Karen Morledge was recommended to me by our Chair of Governors when we needed some communications support. Karen originally worked with us on an internal communications project at the start of 2019 and she did a first-class job. Karen supported my senior management colleagues and I with effective communications during a period of change and assisted with formal consultation, for which we are grateful. Her strategic approach and advice has been superb, as is her ‘little black book’ of contacts.
More recently, we have engaged Karen on an ongoing basis for PR services on a very exciting project; she is leading on the PR for Taunton School’s largest investment project in the school’s 172-year history; our £3.6m new dining hall facility.
Karen’s approach goes beyond writing a press release. She has produced a PR plan to maximise publicity, as well as produced some great PR which has been covered by logal, regional and the education press. Karen offers a very personal service which is tailored to our needs and is certainly a trusted pair of hands.
Our Marketing Manager and I are very much looking forward to working with Karen as our projects progress here at Taunton School over the coming months. Karen really is deserving of recognition for her high-quality work and her expertise. She’s a pleasure to work with.
Nicola Miller – Chief Operating Officer, Taunton School
Karen really is an outstanding individual and she wholeheartedly deserves recognition for the contribution she makes to the Somerset business and wider community.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Karen for a relatively short period of time, but she’s certainly made an impact in that time! She came highly recommended to me as an experienced communicator who could take Wessex Resolutions to the next level. She has implemented a communications plan that has seen our profile raised significantly and the results have been impressive and continue to increase.
Despite working part time (3 days per week) for Wessex Resolutions, Karen is also very active supporting other businesses with her remaining time, raising money for charity, volunteering, supporting and helping other businesses with marketing and PR, as well recently completing a qualification in digital marketing at university.
Karen is a natural entrepreneur, she’s a strategic and creative thinker, yet has a hands-on approach and not afraid to get stuck in with any work I, or my colleagues ask of her. She certainly likes to be busy and making a difference!
She has a busy family life, which has required her to balance her work and home commitments, but she is a true professional and I know I can always rely on Karen to deliver what’s needed, and more.
I really hope that Karen’s business, Morledge & Co. continues to flourish and that many more people in can have the opportunity to be inspired and supported by Karen in future. She’s a remarkable individual who I have the pleasure of working with.

Great PRs are hard to come by, but Karen Morledge is certainly one of them. As the Chief Reporter of the Somerset County Gazette, I’ve known Karen for many years in a professional capacity. She represents her clients excellently and makes my role an easier one. Any news releases that she sends me are well researched, expertly written and presented as well as sent in a timely manner. Needless to say, I would recommend Karen to anyone looking for support with PR and marketing.
Phil Hill – Senior Reporter, County Gazette
I recently attended Karen’s PR workshop and it was awesome. During the course of the workshop, Karen walked us through the key elements of PR and how we could do it ourselves. The workshop was full of useful hints and tips so that we could create our own PR plan. Karen is clearly very passionate about PR and making sure that business owners do it properly. I came away from the session feeling more educated and ready to dive in and create my PR plan. I would highly recommend Karen.

I have had the great privilege and reassurance of working alongside Karen Morledge and her team since 2016, knowing that they are thoroughly professional, knowledgeable and great to work with. We have worked on two BIDs in that time. In each case Karen has taken responsibility for PR both conventional, digital and Social Media. My most recent experience of working with Morledge & Co. has been developing the Taunton BID. I contracted Karen and her company to handle all the social media and PR work for this scheme in 2019. The content and traction of their work is self-evident. It is concise, clear and timely. We have received regular update reports about the impact and effectiveness of their activity. I have no hesitation in recommending Morledge & Co.
