Jovanka was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and always full of ideas, which meant the content of the films was not only first class but immensely interesting for British travellers who viewed these films on The Telepgraph’s website. Even while we were filming in Australia, Jovanka was always online, despite the huge time difference. We would have no hesitation in recommending IPR for any PR or media project – they are full of good ideas, great at getting the best for their clients and are incredibly efficient at communicating. A first class PR agency.
Owner/director, Bladesman Productions
Jovanka is a master at planning media campaigns and when it comes to thinking outside the box there really isn’t anyone better I know who can do this so consistently, and so well. Jovanka is one of those rare-breed PRs who not only gets the best commercial deal for her clients but will stretch the client’s budget with value-added media activities. Brilliant at project-managing, knows what makes a good news story, writes a great press release, and is a first-rate negotiator. What more do you need from a fantastic PR? I hope to work with Jovanka on many more projects to come.
Owner/director, Costello Media
Jovanka is fantastic at building relationships with media and industry and is a natural networker. She is expert at becoming an extension of the in-house PR team and goes above and beyond to achieve results for her clients.

During this period iPR has consistently generated brilliant features and stories in all media for South Australian tourism. Their excellent media contacts and in depth knowledge of our State are second to none. In the current economic climate IPR has maintained a regular stream of high profile features in specifically targeted national and specialist travel press.
During my tenure as Agent General I have found working with Jovanka a real pleasure. Her professionalism and ability are greatly appreciated by this office and the South Australia Tourism Commission.
Agent General for South Australia
They find clever ways to put the stories forward, associating the State with celebrity and quality and all things worth promoting. I think the key ingredient with iPR is their understanding of the local media scene in the UK – it means they put an angle on our stories that resonates with the media which helps us reach the consumers in a credible and compelling way.
Former CEO of the South Australian Tourism Commission and Managing Director of Tourism Australia, Sydney
They are highly respected by the UK travel and lifestyle media who view them as an invaluable source of information and who they trust to provide them with stories that suit their readership or audience. This respect and trust has resulted in significant coverage for their clients – no mean feat in the UK where competition for column inches and airtime is fierce.
I am always been struck by iPR’s enthusiasm, creativity and can-do attitude. iPR always makes time for TA to ensure we are across all their client’s latest products, initiatives and key messages, and this proactive approach helps our team.

Since joining the SATC I have had the pleasure of working more closely with Jovanka and her dedicated team. Jovanka has a great talent for understanding both marketing practices and how PR achieves results, which separates her from the rest. She consistently delivers a high level of impressive editorial coverage in the right target press, with the benefit of her excellent journalist and media contacts. This without a doubt has enhanced the profile and awareness of South Australia. I have always received a first class PR service from iPR’s proactive and friendly approach, and creative thinking. They are a friendly company that has become an extension of our own team. Needless to say, I would highly recommend iPR to any company wanting to effectively increase brand awareness and new business opportunities.
Regional Marketing Manager UK/Ireland, Nordic, Benelux, South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC)
It is a testament to their extensive media contacts and talent for matching the appropriate medium with the right story angle. In a competitive environment, iPR is able to deliver compelling and fresh messages about destination South Australia.
The client relationship is one that is very important to iPR, and they continually demonstrate their willingness to go ‘above and beyond’ to maximise opportunities. They know our product intimately; present ideas regularly and willingly work with us on a variety of projects, large and small. The SATC considers them to be one of our most passionate, imaginative and highest producing PR agencies around the world.
Former Director of Sales, South Australian Tourism Commission, now with Tourism Australia, Singapore
We have featured many times in both national and local papers, with journalists visits being arranged on a regular basis. The amount of editorial written and appearing in the media about Woodovis is constant and we could not possibly afford to pay for similar space in advertising. Our Google ratings are being helped with the continual press releases that are being picked up by online media. Finally we knew it was really working when bookings were coming in along with guests’ comments that wherever they look they see us featured!

We have worked on a variety of stories both in the UK and overseas and I have always found her an excellent PR. She manages to combine knowing what a journalist needs with what will work best for her clients. She is highly efficient, extremely helpful and very pleasant to deal with.

They organised a complex and comprehensive three-centre itinerary for me to Australia, which, from my perspective was effortlessly and seamlessly organised. Knowing I am in safe, knowledgeable hands makes my own job so much easier and adds to the enjoyment of my trip. On top of everything they also arranged a competition so my readers had the chance to experience my own itinerary.
Managing Editor AOL Travel
They are not just incredibly organised and spot on with their itineraries, they’re also wonderful at identifying exactly what’s required. In particular I’ve worked with Jovanka a number of times over the years and am always impressed by her ability to point me towards people and places that both delight and excite me. Hers is an intelligent and inventive approach to PR and I can’t recommend her highly enough.

The fabulous itinerary they put together for us . Jovanka especially has been a delight to work alongside. She naturally knows what will sound good on-air, contributes to the creative aspects we are looking for and is always there to adapt and react to any suggestions we put forward. Simon (Bates) and I have found the whole process both illuminating and enjoyable.
