“I worked closely with Abby and Piaffe, when the London 2012 Olympic medalist Charlotte Dujardin received the coveted Sunday Times and Sky Sports Sportswoman of the Year accolade in November 2014. Abby was exceptionally helpful during this process and did everything she could to ensure Charlotte was honoured at the Awards, which were broadcast live on Sky Sports. I admired Abby’s tenacity, professionalism and humour throughout. Without her help, the show would not have been possible. Abby is one of the best examples of an agent/PR professional we have seen here at The Sunday Times, who truly values the benefit of media coverage whilst also safeguarding the best interests of her clients.”
