THE CLIENTS SAY ...
ABOUT OUR MEDIA RELATIONS SERVICES:
"I can say without a doubt that hiring her (Brenda) was one of the better moves we made. Working exclusively from her home, she managed to bring us places we could never have hoped to get without her. She got us a full-page interview with the Toronto Star, a review in the Kitchener Record, on T.V. and on CBC radio countless times – twice with full interviews and recipes. Before Brenda, we were lucky to get in the local papers once a month. After Brenda, we were in every week."
(Wendy Morley, Co-owner, Baba Ganoush Restaurant / Concerts, Orangeville)
AB0UT OUR PROMOTIONAL WRITING SERVICES:
"I really appreciate her ability to be the storyteller ... Her warmth and sincerity combined with obvious professional experience provides encouragement to those who are 'fearful' of the whole business and promotion thing."
