As a filmmaker traversing the rocky terrain of Hollywood, I knew I would need a different approach to promotion for the East Coast Premiere of my film ‘No Alternative’ in my hometown of Westchester, New York. Kate Wark and everyone at Impact PR & Communications took the project, and its hot-button themes, head on and were able to generate tons of momentum, including newspaper cover stories, television coverage and radio interviews. While they’re adept at high-profile media coverage, I needed a more grassroots, regional strategy for this project, and that’s exactly what they delivered. For a period of a few weeks, no one in Westchester could avoid hearing about ‘No Alternative!’ If that’s not successful public relations, I don’t know what is!

Working with the Impact PR team is an exciting, educational experience that has truly been one of the most effective I have enjoyed in my career. Their insights and activities result in meaningful exposure for our company – more valuable and more cost effective than we could have expected through traditional advertising. Each time I talk with any of them, I get an enthusiastic, knowledgeable professional on the other end of the line. Without hesitation, I would say that the relationship I have with Filomena and her team is one of the most powerful tools in my toolbox.

The Millay Society is thrilled with the Impact PR team’s professionalism, attention to detail, and most of all, results! After researching our project, they placed articles in several A-list publications including The New York Times. Unlike PR groups that assign one account executive per client, Impact PR offers the whole team’s talents and skill sets to tackle issues as they arise, all under the close eye of their CEO and founder. We were impressed by their high level of expertise and consistently creative, positive approach and are happy to recommend their services.

Impact PR’s expertise guides us. The team’s proactive outreach helps us get the impact of our work on children and families out to the community and, when opportunities arise, help secure media placements, awards and grant funds. It’s like having a right-hand person on staff. We love all their touches – the update reports, regular communications and impact of our work together. They don’t stop until all our needs are met, and celebrate our victories with us. I don’t know what we’d do without Impact.

ADK (Adirondack Mountain Club) wanted to refresh its brand on a tight timeline and with a set budget. The team at Impact PR & Communications rose to the challenge. They took the time to get to know us and gave us their full attention. We are very pleased with the results and our team learned a lot from working with Filomena and Karen. We could not have asked for better partners on this project.
Catherine Forbes, Director of Development, ADK
It’s great to work with a team that can make quick study of a PR plan and then execute it with enthusiasm while staying focused on results. Filomena knows the terrain. She and her team are committed, responsive and persistent. They’re a pleasure to work with.

Thank you so much for everything your team has done for us and for how much help you have been with the growth of our business. I truly believe that the impact (some pun intended) you have had on our business is immeasurable. When I first opened my practice, I was given some advice: If you want to strive to be the best physical therapist, surround yourself with only the best in every other profession you need to deal with. I knew from day one I found that in working with you!

Their conscientious focus on obtaining appropriate industry placements sets Impact apart from other PR firms.
Ted Domuracki, President, MAST Construction Services, Inc.
Working with Filomena and her team is incredible. First they get to know you, your value system and your business before they make any suggestions. Second, once the proposed releases start flowing, there is a genuine give and take regarding the thoughts, wording and presentation. Third, the finished product is something that you and Filomena’s team can take great pride in. Finally, Filomena’s industry contacts in getting the word out and press releases published are incredible.
