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. The whole team is amazing to work with and I highly recommend their services.

Working with Lesley Francis PR (LFPR) is equivalent to having a full marketing team at your disposal. They understand Savannah Classical Academy’s opportunities and challenges, and Lesley and her team took the time to learn about the education sector when they began working with us in 2018. Their services to SCA include issues management, event organization, to generating positive coverage via the media, effective social media programs, website and online marketing expertise and complex advertising campaigns - incorporating filming, design, and coordination of a diverse media. Their strategic input, commitment and responsiveness – in and outside office hours – is exceptional. With different skills and expertise within LFPR their efforts really enhance our profile and they are a valued part of the SCA team. I do not hesitate to recommend their services.

From day one, The Lesley Francis PR team has been a true asset to our non-profit organization. They were able to deliver results immediately and made our events an instant success. The LFPR team has invested a lot of up-front time getting to know us and tailored their services to our sensitivities and needs. At the same time, we learned from them how we could benefit from public relations and media services in ways we never imagined and with which we were totally comfortable. LFPR is always professional, proactive and ready with a plan. For every circumstance, they have a solution ready. We cannot recommend their services enough!
