What Our Clients Say About Us
Words alone cannot express our gratitude for Lisa and our experience with Centerpiece. She took the time to listen to our needs, get to know us and our company, and walk us “newbies” through the wonderful world of PR. Lisa was professional, caring, efficient, and delivered more than we expected. Through her expertise and guidance over a 30-day period, we soon found our firm to be the talk of the town! We were truly amazed at the volume of publicity she brought us in such a short time period. We couldn’t ask for a better PR partner. Thank you, Lisa!
Lisa at Centerpiece PR has been instrumental in helping to position our brands — TopResume, TopInterview, and TopCV — as industry leaders and gain global media exposure. She is an absolute pleasure to work with. When you hire Lisa, you gain another member to your team. Not only is she thorough, responsive, and incredibly proactive in her approach, but she is truly invested in your business’ success. The results we’ve achieved with Centerpiece PR have not only helped to establish our brands’ credibility and expertise as thought leaders, but have also contributed to our organic growth efforts.
We can’t recommend Lisa more highly. Not only does she have extensive media relationships and drive strong PR results, she is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is extremely responsive, proactive and a strategic, out-of-the-box thinker who has an acute attention to detail while also being able to see the bigger picture. When hiring Lisa you know you are getting the most senior level of expertise and an invaluable team member and partner.
DealNews began working with Lisa Hagendorf of Centerpiece Public Relations when our Head of PR left suddenly. She is very strategic and understands both PR and brand marketing at a high level. Lisa was challenged with maintaining our trajectory while we searched for a new hire. She maintained our key relationships, while also helping us screen candidates and train current employees to be expert spokespeople. Through her hard work, the replacement person we hired as head of PR has been a great hire, and with media placements separated from spokesperson work, our company is now operationally superior than before we started with Lisa.
