I had heard great things about the team at Lesley Francis Public Relations and we have not been disappointed. Their media knowledge and contacts have generated incredible levels of media coverage for The Salvation Army in Savannah. Feedback from our sponsors and the wider community has been very positive and they are a vital part of our marketing team. It really is like having a full marketing team to rely on. From strategy and issues management, to generating targeted and high-quality media coverage, impressive social media programs, and working alongside us at events and more, they never fail to deliver.
