TESTIMONIALS

The FHPR team works hard to meet and exceed the expectations of its clients – and after more than 30 years in the PR business, we have countless success stories to tell. Below is a sampling of what some of our clients are saying about FHPR:

  • “I had the great pleasure of working for one of the best Broadway press agents of them all, Arthur Cantor. He taught me a lot, but I have to say working with Sharla, Hope and everyone at FHPR has taught me even more. It’s rare that you find the combination of old-time strategic thinking combined with an up-to-the minute understanding of social media and how it can all work together.  Not to mention their rolodex! They do what they say they’re going to do… quickly and cleverly, and before you know it, you have an email in your inbox at 2am with a link to the coverage! A pleasure to work with.” – Alex Fraser, Producing Director, Bucks County Playhouse
  • “I have been working with Sharla and Hope for the past 6 years.  During this time, we have developed the right mix of programs and content to catch the media’s attention.  During the past 2-3 years, we have also worked together to ensure the Spring Hills and Poet’s Walk brand could be seen and found over multi-media platforms.  Between Spring Hill Senior Communities’ and Poet’s Walk, A Spring Hills Memory Care Communities’ already outstanding Signature Touch programs and Hope’s natural ability to twist the program to be more engaging for media interest, we have brought our PR efforts from a 30% success rate to an over 82% success rate.  Hope and Sharla go above and beyond to exceed our expectations.  We couldn’t be happier!” – Christina O’Leary, Director of Branding & Media, Spring Hills Senior Communities
  • “In addition to being an absolute joy to work with, SFPR consistently goes above and beyond to get top notch coverage (for the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival).” – Aaron Dilliplane, Assistant Director, Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia
  • “The Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival has truly become an iconic identifier in the Greater Philadelphia Area. The festival embraces the start of spring with an array of event participation by thousands of diverse community members. The Feldscher Horwitz Public Relations’ team gets it right by forming positive business relationships to ensure that you get the best and most relevant coverage available for your initiatives.  I’ve witnessed our audience’s diversity, attendance numbers, media coverage and tremendous social media engagements blossom since they came on-board.” – Abana Jacobs, National Promotion and Sponsorship Specialist, Subaru of America
  • “I am grateful that PYPA has received tremendous press this year, showing that the festival has made a name of its own in Philadelphia. Special thanks to our tireless PR firm, Feldscher Horwitz Public Relations. Several major TV stations, newspapers in English and Chinese, and radio have interviewed and reported about PYPA.”-Ching-Yun Hu, Artistic Director, Philadelphia Young Pianists’ Academy

  • I cannot express how thankful I am that you took the germ of this idea of a flash mob and brought it to fruition! I saw it online and I got chills while it was happening! – Stephen Kocis, Tony-Award winning Broadway producer
  • After six years, I lovingly call Sharla my “Hurricane Sharla” because having her at my back has not only filled my sails with hope AND results, but she alone is like having an entire staff working tirelessly, creatively and with heart round the clock.  I only want to surround myself with people who love what they do, and no one better fits that bill than Sharla and Hope. I know every day just how lucky I am to have them on my team. – Paul Jost, vocalist, composer, arranger, multi-talented instrumentalist

  • Sharla taught me everything I know about public relations! We have had so much success at String Theory Schools because of the hard work of FHPR – I believe you are a partner in the celebration of this educational movement.

Sharla loves the kids the way I love kids. – Angela Corosanite, Founder, Philadelphia Performing Arts, a String Theory Charter School
