“Rebecca came on board to represent Salon Privé PR in 2020, the year when the COVID-19 pandemic decimated the events and hospitality industry not just in the UK, but around the world. From an organisational stand-point, it became a process of ever-changing goal posts, rules and regulations but in spite of this, Rebecca calmly took on the challenge creating a highly effective strategy that incorporated everything from pre-event communications to managing the inaugural press day and finally wrapping up a meticulously prepared post-event report. Under very difficult circumstances, her tenacity, in-depth understanding of the automotive world, contacts and organisational skills combined to create an exceptional PR campaign. We look forward to working with Rebecca again in 2021.”

David Bagley
Co-Founder and Director

“We worked with Rebecca for our annual ‘Round Britain Coastal Drive, supporting Prostate Cancer UK’ over four years twice for Jaguar E-types and twice for classic Jaguar XKs. Our aim was not only to raise funds but also, just as crucially, awareness. Hence publicity was vitally important. Rebecca did a superb job and we achieved widespread coverage on local radio, and in local and national newspapers, including a superb spread on the front page of the Daily Telegraph Business News. We raised a quarter of a million pounds and gathered widespread publicity. The charity was overjoyed and lives saved”

“Ecurie Ecosse unveiled the LM 69 and the Hampton Court Concourse of Elegance in September 2019. It was a truly exciting time for the team to show the car for the first time and Rebecca gave us her time and effort in pulling the event and the PR together. Her infectious enthusiasm and diligent professionalism, Rebecca steered the event through its press launch and enabled us to meet press and relevant celebrities that otherwise would never have been reached. Ecurie Ecosse LM69 team are grateful for her support and look forward to her continued support through 2020”

“I’ve found Rebecca to be one of, if not the most diligent PR professionals I have ever met. Her attention, passion and energy for all areas of motorsports is not easy to come across. He contacts and relationships within the motorsport world are an asset to her role and job. It has been a pleasure to work with Rebecca with the many ‘MADMAX Race Team’ world records we’ve achieved”

“Rebecca does Public Relations brilliantly. Her clients are effortlessly represented, and their products and services are always fairly depicted. On a business relationship level, I never feel harassed or pushed by Rebecca, if I make any requests, she always deals with them quickly, professionally, and most importantly, in a way that clearly shows a full understanding of what’s needed editorially. And more than that, she sometimes wears sparkly Christian Louboutins – an example to the rest of them!”

Keith Adams
Editor Classic Car Weekly

“Rebecca Leppard is a very unusual lady. First, her knowledge of the motor sport and motoring worlds is considerable, which makes her an obvious choice for clients large and small in these markets. Second, she is a master of the difficult art of getting the ear of people in the media. As a result her ability to get mileage in newspapers, general and specialised magazines, and on radio and TV is remarkable. Third, she is an indefatigable hard worker, exploring every possible avenue to give her clients what they need and persistently leaving no stone unturned. From work she has done with projects with which I have been associated, I cannot fault her ability to go above and beyond her clients’ expectations.”

Simon Taylor
former BBC Radio’s Formula 1 correspondent and Managing Director of Haymarket Magazines. Simon now has a regular column in Classic & Sports Car and co-wrote the Stirling Moss book.

“It’s always a pleasure working with Rebecca. She pulls off the neat trick of promoting her clients without appearing to do so. Always appropriate, never pushy, it’s PR with style… and how often can you say that?”

Danny Hopkins
Editor, Practical Classics Magazine Britain’s Biggest Selling Classic Car Title (ABC Audited)

“Having worked with Rebecca now for coming up to two years she never ceases to amaze me, not only does she have a wealth of contacts and personal connections but she has willingly offered to help us and give her time and expertise to help a Charity raise its profile. Rebecca is one of life’s givers and has a heart of gold; she has done so much good for us by using her own very special set of skills.”

Mel Johnson
Secretary SERV(Kent) SERV Kent, Bloodrunners

“Rebecca Leppard has worked for Bristol Rovers Football Club over the past two years. In this time she has proved to be a very valuable member of the team and having no previous experience or knowledge of the football industry, she managed to secure in excess of £150k. She takes real pride in her work, invests her time and effort into each project which she sees through to completion.”

Ian Holtby
Stadium General Manager, Bristol Rovers FC

“I first came into contact with Rebecca Leppard through the work that she carries out for the Royal Automobile Club. I was impressed by her personal enthusiasm and very professional approach. I subsequently engaged her to look after the PR associated with the charitable foundation that I formed in the name of my late son the Henry Surtees Foundation. Rebecca has worked closely with us in our fundraising events and the support programmes that we have carried out with Air Ambulance regions. We are currently also working with her on the development of programmes for our company including social media. Rebecca is someone who is constantly striving to develop a very personal service for her clients and ensure that they are taking full advantage of all the developments which are taking place in the world of communications and the use it can be put to in enhancing business and other activities.”

John Surtees OBE
Former F1 World Champion on two and four wheels

“As a member of ‘Her Majesty’s Motoring Media’, I simply wished to state that you have always been a most impressive and tireless operator from my viewpoint. Your Newsletter summary is superb and far from being a ‘bit of a show-off’, it highlights the tremendous resource that you present to your clients on both sides of the fence. You are a genuine star! Thank you for being you.”

Iain Robertson
Freelance Motoring Writer

“Eventageous PR were selected as our new PR company since it was clearly evident that their vision for our exhibition and past experience would enable them to achieve results. We worked together for 4+ months leading up to our event and have been delighted with the coverage that they secured including the Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show on Radio 2 and BBC 1 The One Show. Both Helen and Rebecca worked as an extension of our own team and managed all PR requirements with incredible detail and commitment. We are already looking forward to working with them again for 2016!”

Avril Spence
Exhibition Manager, London Model Engineering Exhibition Meridienne Exhibitions Ltd

“Eventageous did a superb job promoting Evro’s photo memoir with John Surtees – in my 25 years in book publishing I can’t recall any title receiving so much press coverage and all review comments were extremely positive.”

Mark Hughes
Editorial Director Evro Publishing

“I have worked with Rebecca Leppard over fifteen years from her transition from Haynes Publishing to Eventageous PR. During which she has represented a large number of clients and brands in the classic motoring field. She has always provided excellent content to our magazine in an efficient, friendly and timely manner.”

James Elliott
Classic & Sports Car

“I have dealt with Rebecca on a weekly basis for the last ten years during which time I have been Motoring Editor of the Daily and Sunday Express newspapers. Throughout that time, I have no doubt that the coverage given to her clients has been primarily down to the professionalism and efficiency of Rebecca – which in my view is second to none. One of the best PR agencies I deal with.”

Nat Barnes
Motoring Editor – Daily and Sunday Express

“I have worked with Rebecca Leppard over a number of years involving varied PR activities and events in the motor sport field, and she has always provided an efficient, helpful and professional service both before and after the event.”

Gordon Cruickshank
Motorsport Magazine

“Rebecca has a great talent in her chosen sphere. She did a brilliant job of handling the PR and events at Haynes Publishing. She understood the subject matter inside out and had the ability to get the story out there. She was also highly supportive and proactive in keeping me up to date with reviews and feedback, without ever having to be chased. She’s easy to get along with, great company and capable of working at high energy levels in any conditions. She’s not fazed whether she’s working in the Royal Automobile Club in London or out in a less hospitable environment such as Edwards Air Force Base, Mojave Desert. You want someone who can pick up your ball, run with it, and score – look no further.”

David Tremayne
The Independent

“In the burgeoning field of public relations, there is manifold mediocrity, and shining lights are rare. Therefore it has been a pleasure to discover that Rebecca is one of the latter. In her transition from one-woman operation to the head of a respected public relations firm, Rebecca has, in the decade I have known her, lost none of the campaign consistency, accuracy, and strength of editorial depth that were clearly there from the beginning. Never intrusive, always supportive, and able to present the necessary facts in a concise, print-ready form, she is a godsend to the busy national media journalist. Rebecca is only one, among a myriad of media contacts, to go the extra yard”.

Phil Vaughan
Press Association

“During the past 10 years or so, while working on a wide range of projects for assorted media outlets, I have liaised many times with Rebecca Leppard. She has always stood out as a paragon of courteous efficiency – one of the relatively rare PRs whose company is to be sought rather than avoided”

Simon Arron
WorldMotor Sport Writer

“Rebecca is so efficient and well organised that campaigns, events and media interviews are managed with military precision. She has high standards and is committed and enthusiastic to whatever she applies herself too, but also expects the same from others.”

James Whitham
World Superbike Commentator and Former Rider

“I have known Rebecca for many years and have always found her to be extremely helpful and responsive, with a clear understanding of what’s needed to make a news story or feature ‘work'”.

David Williams
London Evening Standard

“Efficient without being pushy – a pleasure to work with”
