"Petra Starke was an ideal publicist on our first Adelaide Festival: connected, efficient and intelligent, but most of all working with a great sense of reality, not to mention of humour. I'd work with her again in a heartbeat." - Neil Armfield AO, Artistic Director 2017 Adelaide Festival
"Petra is the ‘golden goose’ who lays golden eggs each and every time! She is charming, super talented and witty, she has enormous experience, skill, is IT savvy and an excellent writer and proof reader. She has an extensive network of industry peers in journalism, entertainment and the arts and is a passionate advocate for the arts. Feast Festival’s 2014 editorial, media coverage and visibility far exceeded our expectations under Petra’s expert hand. It was a pleasure to work with her, I can’t recommend her highly enough." - Catherine Fitzgerald, 2014 Feast Festival Artistic Director
"I would immediately recommend Petra as an excellent arts and culture publicist – highly skilled, experienced and knowledgeable in devising, managing and implementing consumer campaigns that deliver on brief and budget, every time. Petra is incredibly creative, passionate, energetic and above all, highly competent - our company always lands enviable coverage across so many different media outlets. It’s also a great pleasure to work with such a friendly and talented person on a regular basis." - Adam Rossetto, Marketing and Corporate Relations Manager, Windmill Theatre
