"Susan Hart provided us with media relations training and crisis communication training. I have received many positive comments about both sessions. Attendees appreciated Susan's thorough knowledge of these subjects and her hands-on experience. Susan is a true professional. I have worked with many media and crisis trainers in the past, and Susan is certainly among the best! I would highly recommend her!"

Make-A-Wish Foundation Annual Campaign
An important awareness and fundraising campaign for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, as part of the annual Macy's Believe Campaign, Hart Public Relations collaborated with the charity's Arizona-based agency of record to handle local market media relations. In addition to mainstream media coverage and online promotions, we also were able to introduce local contacts who graciously donated their monetary and business services to fulfill the wishes of this year's pediatric cancer patient so that the event was entirely at no cost to the nonprofit.
