CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

Rhegan White-Clemm Headshot
I have worked with LFPR in a variety of roles over the years and when the time came for a cohesive marketing program to support the return of the Savannah Challenger in 2022, they were the perfect choice. “This premiere professional tennis event, which takes place on Skidaway Island, needed a new logo, new website and new printed collateral. We are over the moon with how brilliant everything looks and how user friendly our new website is. Thank you LFPR for your hard work, creative, functionality genius and your thoughtful, artistic vision.

I've worked with Lesley Francis PR at two different organizations now, and both have expanded their reach, prestige, and fund-raising thanks to LFPR's efforts. Although Savannah based, they are perfectly capable of working on regional and national campaigns. I've also admired her esprit de corps and willingness to trust and advance her staff.

The Lesley Francis Public Relations team has been a valuable asset to the Bryan County Opioid Prevention Project. Lesley and her team have extensive knowledge and experience in working with non-profit organizations. They continuously research to stay up-to-date on the opioid epidemic in order to promote our goals and strategies in preventing opioid abuse in Bryan County. LFPR allowed me to make connections in the community that would have been impossible on my own. Their client communication surpasses all expectations. If I needed anything, I knew an email or call would be answered almost immediately. Lesley’s team has excitement and passion in what they do. I always look forward to my monthly planning meetings with them. They truly became an invested member of my organization.

The past two years have been challenging for everybody, but especially for those in the hospitality industry. Since both of our businesses depend on visitors to Savannah, we used this time to evaluate how we wanted to promote our long established companies. We knew we needed some guidance with our social media platforms and raising our profile through traditional media. Contracting with Lesley Francis Public Relations was one of the best decisions we made. We would recommend their services to any business owner looking for some marketing expertise.
