BBC Essex broadcasting from my home in Billericay

“Piper has thrown herself into the frugal life since taking on the role as MSN Money’s frugal blogger. She’s lived her journalism, surviving on the basic state pension for a month among other things, then reporting back on her experiences to our audience in a fresh and honest voice. She has rightly won both internal and national awards for her work, and published her experiences of living life for less as a book.”

“Back in 2009, Piper Terrett put herself forward to represent the UK and man on the street about environmental issues and was voted by the nation as Green Voice of the UK. Thrown straight into the deep end after being announced as the winner, Piper had to present to a room full of MPs, including Joan Ruddock, the former Environment and Energy Minister. Not fazed by the pressure, Piper discussed how she would use her contacts and blog to ensure she was reaching out to represent everyone across the UK in a very calm and confident manner.

Since then, Piper has been asked to talk at a range of events. Her speeches have always been very interesting and relevant. She has a way of engaging with the whole room and giving an honest picture of the issue at hand. It has been a pleasure working with Piper and she is always organised and relaxed. It makes me feel confident to know that she is fully prepared.”
Caroline Rams, former press officer for the Energy Saving Trust and senior account executive at Cake PR.

“I am the midmorning producer at BBC Essex and we’ve used Piper many times as a contributor to our programme.  She is always imaginative, upbeat, witty, and fun, but what makes her stand out as a contributor is how polished and professional she is. She has a real and warm quality which engages our listeners.”
Shana Pearlman, producer, BBC Essex’s Dave Monk Show

“As the PR representative for the Society of Women Writers & Journalists based in London, I am often asked to book professional speakers for the group’s activities.  Having heard Piper speak on behalf of the Billericay Greening Campaign, I would have no hesitation in booking her for one of our conventions as she has an extremely articulate and engaging approach in holding her audience.”
Sylvia Kent, columnist for the Brentwood and Chelmsford Weekly News and publicity manager for the Society of Women Writers & Journalists.

“When Piper Terrett was asked to speak at the Greening Billericay Campaign, she was not only informative but also encouraged audience interest by ensuring she remained relevant, salient and amusing. She has the ability to provide her messages appropriately and, equally importantly, knows when to stop. The level of interest generated and her response to audience questions and comments ensured that the wider implications of questions about environmental issues were well received and helped stimulate the remainder of the evening’s business. Piper is a joy to work with and has positively enhanced the Working Party both in terms of the ideas she has generated and her diligence in seeing the task through.”
David Knight, Town Councillor, Billericay Town Council, and Chairman of the Billericay Greening Campaign
