Here is a compilation of testimonials based on what we offer at Black Collar Creative

“Janine was an enthusiastic and creative liaison for my work for Gayelle the Channel, putting real effort and thought into photography sessions with presenters for promotion and overcoming sometimes recalcitrant and difficult personalities. I’d enjoy working with her again anytime.”

– Mark Lyndersay, Writer and photographer working out of Trinidad and Tobago.


“Janine is a hard worker who gets the job done. Tell her what you what done and point her in the direction, and she will deliver.”

– Errol Fabien, Co-Founder Gayelle Limited


“When Janine approached me to offer her assistance with my event, I was initially a bit skeptical because I had been burned in the past by similar offers of assistance that turned out to be self-serving and exploitative. However, I can say with the greatest confidence that Janine put any fears or skepticism to rest with her outstanding work ethic, reliability and honesty. She sincerely cares about every project that she is a part of and it shows in the quality of work that she produces. I would highly recommend her for any project without reservation.”

–  Josette James, Cosplayer, Director ALIAS Entertainment Expo


“Janine brims with enthusiasm about her work. She handles budgets of various sizes, closely analyzes the client’s product or service, and puts her nose to the grindstone to deliver sound marketing advice and strategies. For three consecutive years she helped to manage the message of COCO Dance Festival by keeping us in the limelight in both traditional and social media. To date, the promotional Vox Pop that she negotiated and co-produced for us – “How Do You Dance” – remains one of our most popular posts in the twelve-year history of the festival.  She’s a real soldier for arts promotion!”

Sonja Dumas, Co-Director, Festival Manager CoCo Dance Festival


“(Janine) worked extensively with us as our Public Relations Consultant to our Production Team on our 2015 production of ‘Mahalia, A Gospel Musical.’ We found her input and output inspiring and productive, many times going way beyond the call of her contractual arrangement. Her promotion of our production was extensive and inciteful in all media, including social media. We are forever grateful to her for her contribution to making ‘Mahalia A Gospel Musical.’ One of our most successful productions. We have no hesitation in recommending the employment of her services.”

John Henry Smith, Chairman and Creative Producer, JCS Entertainment


“Metamorphosis Dance Season 2019, Take Heart, was held at Queen’s Hall, in May 2019. Ms. Janine Charles-Farray handled three parts of the marketing campaign: Publicity and Public

Relations activities, Social Media Management and Content Creation for Social Media

Management and Promotion. Along with use of traditional media of press, radio and TV, the marketing campaign saw a very creative approach with eye catching visuals of ballet shoes as installations at 8 locations. We were very happy with the professionalism with which Janine handled all aspects of the campaign which resulted in a higher than normal awareness of the Dance Company and the Dance Season.”
