They look to us to be collaborators and colleagues. Our current and prior clients include:


"I was introduced to Jo and Smart Connections PR during a healthcare venture and engaged the firm's services for advancing my CEO mentoring and coaching activities.

I would highly recommend Jo, her staff and the company as high levels experts in the PR field."

“Smart Connections did a great job for us.  We launched a new product which required thorough understanding to pitch, and they were able to garner a steady stream of coverage from major news outlets.  It was their diligence and hard work that got us on the map of both therapeutic and sleep industries.  I'd heartily recommend them to any business, whether already established or start up.”

- Randall Redfield, CEO and Co-founder, Integrated Listening Systems


“At HyperGrid we feel fortunate that Smart Connections PR is part of our team as we would not have been able to achieve as high a level of visibility and coverage in such a short time. They are incredibly well connected across all influencer, media and social communities – bloggers, analysts, editors and freelancers- they know them all and fully leverage them on our behalf. They are penultimate pros on every level delivering ahead of promised schedules and always on budget. They have a unique ability to engage with the C-suite, engendering complete trust from all of our executives. Anyone who is serious about proactive, aggressive, strategic public relations should definitely engage with Smart Connections PR.”

-Douglas Gruehl, Vice President, Corporate Marketing and Communications, HyperGrid

Doron Kempel, Chairman and CEO, SimpliVity
