After the stress and worry of Irma, life at LFPR is getting back to normal. Despite issues with power, water and internet connections, we know how comparatively fortunate we were in Coastal Georgia. Other parts of the world, especially Puerto Rico, is in our thoughts and prayers.
Sadly, Irma meant that we had to postpone our client, the River Street Inn’s 200th birthday party and Savannah Magazine’s party to celebrate The Best of Savannah was also postponed. Nevertheless, we are still thrilled that LFPR was voted runner up in the Best of Savannah Public Relations category and appreciate everyone that voted for us.
We are delighted with the success of the fifth season of the Savannah VOICE Festival, amazed at the fantastic quality of the performances and grateful to the media who help us to promote this three-week celebration of opera, musical theatre and song. It seems like a long time ago when I first met founders Maria Zouves and opera legend Sherrill Milnes to work with them to promote this exciting initiative. The end of the Festival meant that some well deserved rest and relaxation was for the hard-working team at LFPR, so we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Chive and massages at Milan Day Spa on Broughton to celebrate Kristyn’s birthday and the departure of our summer intern – Brennan Perry.
We are thrilled to have been appointed by Historic Savannah Foundation, working on media relations, social media, website updates and maintenance, event planning, copy writing and other marketing initiatives. It is a privilege to be part of their mission to “save buildings, places, and stories that define Savannah’s past, present, and future” and we already feel like an extended part of their marketing team.
We also invested in some fascinating training for Team LFPR to assess our personalities, strengths and weaknesses. We all undertook a profiling questionnaire to identify each of our natural styles and adapted styles and then shared our results to maximize our efficiency and understanding of each other. No surprises that I was confirmed to be an extremely high ‘Conductor’ (fast paced leader who is focused on results, is competitive and wants accountability) paired with a high score as a ‘Promoter’ (social but controlled with exciting ideas, a love of change with lots of trust and sharing tendencies). Fortunately, we are a very well-balanced team with plenty of ‘Supporter’ (supportive, relaxed, consistent and patient) and ‘Analyzer’ (quality conscious, factual focused and results driven) tendencies in our team. This only proved what I instinctively believe – that we are in great shape and poised to go from strength to strength!
