“Owen has been an integral part of our Edinburgh Festival operation. He’s helped steer Underbelly to greater media coverage than ever before, whilst juggling the demands of over 100 shows and running a press office that quite literally ‘never sleeps’. Such a likeable, approachable chap could probably do a number of things in life… we’re just happy he’s stuck with what he’s very good at – honest, down to earth, damn good PR!!”

“Owen O’Leary hit the ground running and was able, in a remarkably short time, to understand the brief, make contact with key people inside the College, and develop a strategic – yet very practical – approach to the project.


He worked well with our existing communications team and with other colleagues, sensitively negotiating relationships and working methods. With his excellent press contacts he delivered great coverage for our Degree Show, including some unexpected issues management, and we would certainly be delighted to work with him again.”

“Owen’s press campaign for A Play, A Pie and A Pint and Hoors at the Traverse was truly outstanding. He secured an unprecedented volume of coverage across a wide range of publications, often going the extra mile, if not several extra miles to achieve his planned campaign. Besides working really hard, he showed great flair and creativity and his positive, cheerful approach was a tonic for everyone with whom he came in contact.

He is, without doubt, the best freelance PR with whom I have had the pleasure of working. Worth every penny!”

“It was a true pleasure working with Oh Really as publicists for Dance Marathon at the Edinburgh Fringe this year.

They have an excellent knowledge of the city, the festival, and its major players, as well as a thorough understanding of the rhythms and cycles of how the media covers the Fringe. I wouldn’t dream of coming to Edinburgh again without having them as part of the team.”
