I have been working with Oily Cart since January 2019. I work on PR for the shows Oily Cart produce and also work closely on brand and profile-raising.

“Working with Binita has been a real pleasure, her warm and energetic style has made it feel a very positive collaboration. Her strong values have felt a very natural fit with our work and vision. Binita has the ability to really get beneath the surface with an organisation, deeply understanding our audiences and identity. She is a great connector and works in a really thorough, holistic way, bringing an impressive range of skills and experience to our work. Binita has really progressed our PR work and had a big impact on Oily Cart in her time with us.”

Outcomes:

The press and media love Oily Cart and because they have worked with a retainer PR for many years they have established themselves and their name and work is familiar and well loved. We receive excellent press interest across the board. I am embedded in the company and provide support in many different ways.

Recently I have been supporting Oily Cart in the launch of their report and suggested that they hold an event with some performances from the artists as well as a roundtable discussion. They decided to go ahead and have taken over 100 bookings.

I have also courted and successfully procured a high profile Ambassador for the company in 2021.
