We can analyze your current public relations programs and develop ways to improve your company's image in your targeted marketplaces.

We have over 30 years experience working with news media and are accredited by the Public Relations Society of North America. Whether it is a simple task such as writing press releases or developing a fully integrated program, we can help.

Ask us about the time we helped John Ratzenburger, a.k.a. Cliff Claven from the hit show Cheers, get news coverage for his Ride Across America to promote the American Diabetes Association. We provided the Harley-Davidson, got the cameras and radio interest and he provided the star appeal. Let us help you do the same!

We are there for you in the tough times too. Our Crisis Communications skills have been honed by years of hands on media work involving potential negative press coverage.
