Jane Keighley


Jane Keighley worked in the Public Relations department of a prestigious school for 12 years organising events, fundraising campaigns, major sponsorship, copywriting, publications and marketing.

Her passion for writing led her to branch out on her own as a freelance journalist. With a writing style that is informative, witty and refreshing Jane has had close to 200 articles published nationally and internationally, in the fields of health, fitness, nutrition, beauty, lifestyle, travel and general features.

However, demand for her PR talent brought her back to the field and in 2002 she founded Jake Public Relations. She has presented at conferences and seminars and contributes to various industry publications.

Her flair and organisational skills have ensured successful product launches and events that have achieved diverse media coverage. Her attention to detail, enthusiasm and dedication to her clients’ success is what makes her company stand out.

Our Clients


The Gardiner Chess Centre was officially launched on 3 February, 2003. Jane Keighley was the official media representative for the centre for this auspicious occasion. Jane undertook this task most enthusiastically in a very professional manner. She insisted on a very thorough briefing from me before embarking on her plan. She contacted all suitable media outlets and highlighted angles that seemed most appropriate for each organisation. She followed up faxes with phone calls and discussed the story with media reps. She then sent reminder faxes on the morning of the occasion. The result was blanket coverage from all forms of media. Virtually everyone I have met since the launch knew of it through TV, radio or one of the three newspapers that covered the story. Where necessary, Jane wrote the story herself in line with the requirements of the particular media organisation. She is an experienced freelance writer and her stories are sought after by the print media. All in all I am a very satisfied client.

I would just like to congratulate you on an excellent article. As a natural soap maker, I find it surprising and disturbing what ingredients are included in every-day supermarket soap. It was because of the damage that was done by these soaps that we started making our own, and now it has become a business. Once again, well done – you put together a very good article, and we hope it makes your readers a little more aware of what soap might be doing to their skin.

Hi Jane, I was delighted with your article, you are very effective in inspiring people and we heard from a number of motivated Australians.

I employed Jane Keighley to edit my book, "The 7 Simple Secrets to Success." From my book's title you will understand that I am an expert in creating success through simple and easy processes. Jane's editing skills were a major success for me. She is a delight to work with and when determining the content of the text of a book for publication she is a master. Jane is ever mindful of correcting a manuscripts layout whilst retaining the ' voice of the author, ' which is an incredible talent. She carefully arranged, modified and corrected my manuscript whilst staying in close communication with me. I was fully informed about the progress of the job and as to her suggested alterations. I recommend Jane to you for all your editing needs.

When ITV's This Morning programme decided to commit 20 minutes of our air time to Australia every day for a fortnight, in conjunction with ‘I’m a Celebrity … Get me Out of Here 2004’ we needed help. Jane Keighley's contacts and editorial judgement provided just that. Thanks to Jane's solid research before our arrival down under we hit the ground running with much of what we needed already firmly in place. Thereafter she was an important member of our team, providing journalistic and diplomatic support.

Jane Keighley represented C8 Pty Ltd from May 2003 to December 2005. During this time Jane created and maintained numerous relationships with writers, journalists and editors. Jane directly contributed to raising our product awareness in the media and obtained over 40 editorials and feature articles in high profile national publications as well as television coverage. Many times Jane's insight and expertise has helped C8 Endermologie get the most for their PR dollar. I have personally found it rewarding to work with Jane, and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking innovative public relations and journalistic representation.

Jane's location in a country famed for its outdoor lifestyle and progressive attitude towards alternative forms of therapy, coupled with her wide knowledge base and free-flowing copy style have established her as the only regular feature writer for Sri Lankan Airlines Serendib magazine. We rarely need to brief Jane as her understanding of our product and reader profile rewards us with first rate copy each time. Jane contributes regularly for Heath & Wellbeing as well as interviews and entertainment features.

Having been a designer and art director for 25 years, it has made me very selective when it comes to choosing suppliers to work with. I demand top quality results and Jane always delivers. She is a competent writer and editor and possesses creative flair. Her attention to detail ensures that the end product is of an excellent standard. Jane has a natural ability to communicate with clients appropriately and her placid nature makes her a pleasure to deal with. If you require any writing or editing task produced, I would have no hesitation in recommending Jane for the job. You will be grateful to have her on board.

Starting a new business requires the input of the right people, and for Jestomic P/L launching its new product "Push me Home", Jane and her expertise was just what we needed to develop our brand Australia wide. Her success in securing spots in major magazines and television exposure has had ongoing effects and more than assisted with the successful launch of our product. Thank you Jane for your professionalism and approachability throughout this exciting time.

Thanks Jane for understanding the branding and positioning required for our company. Your continual quest to promote Jaye Niemi in both standard and ‘left of field’ mediums has been a great success to us. You are proactive in sourcing PR opportunities which is what we want from our PR firm.

It is wonderful to work with someone who is as enthusiastic about creating brand awareness as I am. Jake Public Relations and Jane Keighley have gained excellent results for Aussie Pooch Mobile, creating a wide variety of PR related material. Jane has a wonderful ability to build positive relationships with both her clients and her media contacts.

Chris Taylor

Founder, Aussie Pooch Mobile
We recently scanned the web for a public relations company to use in Australia to help promote our Neat Feat product range through newspapers, magazines, periodicals and all forms of print media. After visiting Jane Keighley’s web site, Jake Public Relations, we made contact, arranged a meeting to brief Jane on our products, and hit the jackpot!! Within weeks we received free write-ups from publications all over Australia. Jane has the ability to write the story so that it generates interest in our product portfolio, and she issued a continual stream of press releases that were persuasive and informative and ensured good levels of free press coverage. We will be using Jane’s services again this year (2008/09) and strongly recommend that if you are looking for a public relations expert you try Jane Keighley.
