Promethean CEO, Jim Marshall on PR with Panache!

I have worked with Sue and the PR with Panache! team over the years and they really opened my eyes to the enormous benefits of using a PR agency to raise our profile within the marketplace.  They have the connections and creativity to make your story stand out from the crowd, and work tirelessly to ensure your story is heard above the noise.

A few words from the infamous Anne Wujcik....

I  have watched Sue’s work over the years with great admiration. She has always been a good listener and that, in turn, has made her a great partner for organizations that want to tell their story to a wider audience. I continue to be impressed with the quality of her clients and her ability to translate how an individual company’s passion for a product or idea connects to the wider trends of the education market. While her clients come first, Sue has always worked hard to find the angle that works best not just for them but for me as an editor and analyst. And through all the hard work, attention to detail and hand-holding that go into successful media campaigns, it’s always evident Sue and her talented team at PR with Panache! are having fun doing what they love.

Greg Downey of eSchool News says this of PR with Panache!

The education decision makers who rely on eSchool Media's publication networks need up-to-the-minute information on the products and services their schools and colleges must evaluate and buy. Sue Hanson and her “PR with Panache!” team have long been instrumental in helping eSchool Media deliver that important component of our coverage. Sue is a friend and a reliable source who makes our life richer and our content more effective.

storybook1We love the K-12 education marketplace and making a difference in how our youth learn! That is why we love working with companies that want to enter this marketplace…you will make a difference.

Our team consistently deliver stellar results for companies and organizations that previously had low-to-zero awareness and presence in the education marketplace. The PRP team delivers expert, tailor-made PR, marketing and business development campaigns for clients that are designed to maximize visibility and positively impact our clients’ bottom line.

Buzz That Turns Into Business

PR is far more than sending press releases and making calls—it’s establishing recognition. It takes a creative thinker to brand your needs and market them successfully. PRP’s wide range of professional experiences enables us to promote companies with a rare combination of business savvy, personal knowledge and hands-on interest. This makes all the difference, with public relations campaigns that are more accessible to our target audiences and more effective for our clients.

Speaking Their Language

Social Media is an integral part of any successful public relations campaign to reach important demographics. Our team uses social media in both our personal and professional lives; by using tools such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, we devise social media strategies within strategic PR campaigns for our clients that make a statement and drastically increase their visibility and footprint on the web.

Deep Roots

Based in Minneapolis, PR with Panache! has an unparalleled 20-year history of successful, sophisticated public relations campaigns. Every PRP signature campaign reflects our individual focus on the client’s unique needs, desires, personality and imagination. For successful results and long-lasting relationships, we use a customized approach to tell our clients’ stories—always with a personal touch.
