They organized and transformed the site into a visually stunning and streamlined platform. With updated technology, our website now features enhanced functionality. For anyone seeking a website revamp, we recommend LFPR with total confidence.”
“What do you say when the words to describe the experience of working with LFPR do not do it justice? Holistic? Efficient? Responsive? Intuitive? Pleasant? Engaging? Well, I would use any of those words and many more to describe the experience working with Lesley and her team. The City has been extremely pleased with the client-focused approach, well-developed viewpoints on a wealth of projects and bringing not just an A game, but THE GAME when working with us as their Client. Save yourself the time and go right to the best: LFPR.”

We highly recommend them to any business looking to take their marketing to the next level."
"LFPR handles both Convention Consultants and Official Guides of Savannah’s PR and Marketing. We have been a client of Lesley’s since 2021 and her team has done an outstanding job for us. One of LFPR’s niche is to help non-profits and museums with their PR needs. As you know, non-profits and museums can be difficult for PR agencies to navigate but let me assure you that Lesley’s team will go above and beyond to help you get your message out to not only the local community but also can help you with a regional or national reach."
"LFPR's support and partnership for the grand opening of the Telfair Children's Art Museum was impactful and precise. We presented an idea and the LFPR team brought our vision to life with professionalism and an effective strategy. Among their many strengths, LFPR's client communication is highly impressive and proven trustworthy."
Bri Salley
Director of Marketing & Communications - Telfair Museums
Team LFPR has been so helpful to our nonprofit organization in every way. Their team of marketing and event organization experts are a strong force, led by Lesley, that divides and conquers every campaign and task! Allie (our account director and main contact at LFPR for Habitat for Humanity ) is there to answer any questions or concerns as well as advise on what would be most beneficial for the organization. Chloe (our account executive) helps write on our behalf and formulates copy so precisely that our mission is clearly defined. Shelby (VP of Digital Design) creates gorgeous graphics that help really show the light of Habitat.

Each person does their job so well that we feel good going into events and fundraisers. Should any concern arise, the LFPR team is quick to answer and calm nerves. They are there to brainstorm with and find creative ways to highlight our organization. We so appreciate their creative and professional minds. However, what really makes them stand out is their heart for what we do. They took the time to learn to "speak Habitat" and always make sure they are correct when speaking of our programs before submitting information to the media or publishing materials. They are continuously looking to do their job better and spread the word about the work of Habitat for Humanity. They are a pleasure to work with and fit right in with the people who make up our "village."
Ava Claire Mattox
Development Manager - Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity
“Pedrick & Company selected LFPR to build a new website to reflect what makes our company’s CPA services and team members stand out. We are delighted with the result. LFPR provided total website management including drafting copy, new photography, videography and more. They kept us informed every step of the way and met our timelines. Every team member was professional and responsive. We highly recommend their services.”
"The team at LFPR did an amazing job organizing and promoting the inaugural Lip Sync Competition for Mary's Place. Truly, they all do a great job at supporting The Coastal Empire’s business and non-profit community!"
"We worked with LFPR in 2022 around our visitor center ribbon cutting and Soiree events. We had a short period of time to prepare for these co-sponsored events which included a public presentation, open house, and a VIP reception. LFPR was contracted to support the event management, PR and outreach, along with fulfilling a separate contract for graphics support. I appreciate the expertise they offer in-house to service all of this work. They did a wonderful job with the event planning details, providing vendor service solutions and custom creating content for our platforms. The PR and media response was wonderful and they projected our news far and wide. Lastly, the graphics created for our programs, flyers, posters, swag and the incredible art on our storefront windows attest to the skill and creative eye of LFPR staff. Overall, they did a great job and I recommend their services."
“LFPR has served FPCE with superior customer service and impeccable work relations for over 4 years. I can honestly say that I feel like their ONLY client!”
"LFPR is a great group of marketing professionals. Deadlines are met, any changes requested are made quickly, and the quality of work is excellent. When I spoke with one of our vendors they interacted with, they said they had no questions or needed anything. LFPR quickly takes care of tasks. They are the right team to organize and promote Mary’s Place inaugural Lip-Sync gala and we are proud to be in partnership with Lesley Francis PR."
“It’s wonderful when you contract a marketing agency like LFPR and then you get much more than what you thought you were paying for. At every turn, every time we have a chance to interface with the LFPR team, we get much more than what we asked for, or what we expected, which is highly unusual in today’s environment. I had actually fired two previous marketing agencies over the last two years because they overpromised and way underdelivered. So LFPR has been a completely different experience for us: when we ask for help with our rebranding, our social media campaigns, engagement and media relations, every time we interface with the LFPR team we are pleasantly surprised with the highest quality work that’s done on time and at much better than expected levels. The BlueDragon team has been been pleasantly surprised at every turn and I couldn’t endorse or recommend LFPR any higher.”
"LFPR exceeded all our expectations. We had a very limited timeline to make a big impact for the ribbon cutting of the new Gray’s Reef Ocean Discovery Center in Savannah, GA. LFPR leveraged their extensive contacts and experience to garner broad media coverage and attendance of the ribbon-cutting event. They also designed impactful graphics for event materials as well as the Ocean Discovery Center itself. LFPR was an invaluable asset for this event, also setting us up for future success.”
"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.”
“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.”
"Lesley Francis PR is a vital part of our Savannah VOICE Festival team. Quite simply, we would not be here without their commitment and amazing levels of media coverage achieved since we launched the festival in 2013.

They truly love Savannah and the business and organizations they serve."
"We have worked with LFPR since 2014 and they really are part of our team. They bring their marketing expertise to promoting church events, issues and challenges - such as when we pivoted to virtual worship during the COVID-19 pandemic. Asbury Memorial and what we stand for and do has a very high profile in Savannah and working with LFPR is one of the main reasons we often enjoy extensive media coverage."
"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.”

I have once again been very impressed with their creativity, flexibility and focus on client needs.

They are always responsive and timely and I highly recommend them.”
"At Spirit of Peace Lutheran Church, we connected with LFPR in September 2020, and I am so glad that we did! The staff has been friendly, responsive, and creative in helping us to publicize our events to the larger community AND helping us build new partnerships with other organizations in the community. We are a small church. Many churches may feel like they are “too small to afford a PR firm,” but after working with Lesley Francis, I say that any church that wants to reach the community can’t afford NOT to call LFPR!"
