Jane had a fabulously successful career in fundraising and events, followed by a two-year stint as a freelance journalist.

Growing up she’d devoured every health and fitness magazine she could find, so specialising in that area was an easy decision. Combined with beauty, wellness, and lifestyle, she created her niche.

During that time she was published both nationally and internationally in magazines including Women’s Fitness & Health, Healthy Options, New Idea, Woman’s Day, Body + Soul, Prima and Natural Health. She even landed a role as health and beauty editor for Sri Lankan Airline’s in-flight magazine.

Demand for her writing increased, she did a few PR writing gigs, and PR was where she stayed.

She founded Jake Public Relations in 2002.

Being a former journo, Jane knows the media. Knows how to write for the media and how to find the perfect pitch.

Getting you noticed in the media is the name of the PR game, and this is what she excels at as attested by the many clients she’s had the privilege of working with agree.

Nothing makes her happier than working with people who put their heart and soul into their business, harnessing the power of the media to get them free publicity.

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

So if you are a small to medium business and are ready to set he world on fire, let Jane show you how. She will be your best investment.

The world is your PR oyster.


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.

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.

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.

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.
