Not that we were having an exstistenial crisis but we decided to go directly to our clients as well as media representatives and ask them to describe what it's like working with us.
Here's what they had to say.
“Laurie and her team were professional, enthusiastic and creative with a high degree of integrity. We were privileged to have been working with Laurie to implement a U.S. focused public relations program for our company based in Australia.
Keen, quick to grasp concepts and then follow them through for effective outcomes. Laurie has been a pleasure to work with and got us the results we were looking for. “

"Laurie Riedman always found time to help me meet tight wire service deadlines via interviews, product searches and in one case, a personal visit escorting the CEO of a top-ranked horticultural company where I was able to gather insider information about a product launch. It was a continuing pleasure to work with someone who could anticipate my needs."
