I’ve known Lesley Francis and her various team members at Lesley Francis PR for more than a decade through my work at the Bryan County News and can actually remember when it was founded back in 2011.

I think there’s a reason it’s grown to include a diverse clientele of government, non-profit and private interests, and that’s because Lesley and her team are exceptionally good at what they do. Further, Lesley’s personal column, “An English Rose in Georgia,” has become a favorite of our readers (she gets fan mail from all over) and it’s one of my favorite reads as well. I’d recommend Lesley Francis PR without hesitation to anyone in the market for a PR firm.

Lesley Francis is an energetic and enthusiastic individual whose Public Relations skills are, quite simply, phenomenal.

I had the privilege of working with Lesley as a Board Member of the Savannah Book Festival. Despite being in a strictly volunteer position, she garnered an unprecedented level of local, regional and national attention for the Festival, including dozens of newspaper and magazine articles, myriad radio and television interviews, and continuous broadcast of the Festival’s activities on a national cable network. The Savannah Book Festival has evolved from a local celebration into a nationally-recognized literary event, and Lesley deserves the lion’s share of credit for that transformation. I could not recommend her more highly!

The new site is breathtaking.  Your whole team is to be congratulated.  We’d like to especially recognize Chaeli for working with us every step of the way to bring this vision to life.  Your talents are amazing.  We are getting rave reviews already from our board.

At Spirit of Peace Lutheran Church, we connected with LFPR in September, 2020, and I am so glad that we did!

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 are 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!

The dedicated team at Lesley Francis PR understands media relations.

They have built solid relationships with local journalists by making relevant and timely media pitches and following through till the story is published. Newsrooms are grateful to work with professionals like LFPR.

Working with Lesley Francis PR (LFPR) is like having a full marketing team within our organization.

They provide so much more than you would expect from a public relations agency and handle not only media relations, but also social media and our online presence and branding.  LFPR is a true marketing partner to the Mediation Center as they have a real desire and commitment to understanding our organization – not only what we do but how we make an impact – and they bring that understanding into our marketing strategy and communication messages. The Mediation Center has been working in the greater Savannah area for over 30 years and we have a complex and diverse range of programs that need in-depth understanding and the ability to communicate messages to all our audiences; LFPR always delivers.
