Thank you again for your efforts and those of your firm. Between the articles in the CJN and the very well received conference, I believe that we are beginning to change the public’s perception of what Zareinu is all about. We received 26 evaluation forms; the average satisfaction score was 4 out of 5 and the most popular lecture was “all of them”. I have been impressed with your commitment to Zareinu over the past few months and your efforts are bearing amazing fruit."

"To Howard, Kim, Kaitlynn, Jaymes, Jade, Wendy, and Laura of the Brown & Cohen team,
A big THANK-YOU!!! for all the work you put into making the PEO Queen’s Park day the success that it was. I received comments from MPPs that our reception was the most well-attended that they had seen all year. It couldn’t have happened without the groundwork that you have helped build over the years, and the valiant efforts at the end to ensure everyone would still attend when the House was prorogued.
Howard, your enthusiasm and positive outlook that everything will succeed is infectious and self-fulfilling, and I appreciate it.
JOB WELL DONE!!"
- Jeannette Chau, Manager, Student and Government Liaison Program, Professional Engineers Ontario
I would like to echo Jeannette's words. The Brown & Cohen team, once again, produced. The GLC truly appreciates your commitment and positive, never say die, attitude.
Thank you for all you do for the engineers of Ontario."
- Barry Steinberg, CEO, Consulting Engineers of Ontario
"Thank you to Wendy and her team for a stellar job of creating and coordinating a solid social media strategy for the launch. Several Facebook wall & event posts, trivia and user-poll contests, lead to a ~110% increase in our community’s engagement with the Campaign Launch on Facebook over the past eight weeks."

"When we started Swift Trade, we wanted to hire a firm that would get us the kind of profile to attract enterprising people willing to risk $25,000 of their own money in a day trading account with the potential for a significant return. Swift Trade would provide extensive training, computerized trading programs and the latest computer equipment in an office environment. Brown & Cohen, in a very short time, was able to get us national media exposure that not only educated consumers as to the concept of day trading but enticed many people to become day traders with us.
We felt very strongly about the value of PR coverage since we had a great story to tell. What was needed was an effective PR company. Brown & Cohen came through with flying colors. They were very creative in telling stories that would be interesting to media across the country and were able to sustain this media interest on a regular basis over a 12 year period. They are an extremely results-oriented firm.
Largely due to their efforts we were able to expand our business by 4800% on a global scale. I have subsequently hired them for two more of my businesses."

"With a growing body of work in an emerging area (water), we felt it was time to seek professional support to leverage our efforts and grow our impact. In a few short months, Brown & Cohen have become trusted, reliable partners securing appearances on local and national television. As account manager, Kaitlynn Dodge in particular has been a valued connector, coach and champion of our water work."

We hired Brown & Cohen to do Search Engine People’s PR. In the time that we’ve worked together, they’ve become much more than our PR company – they’ve become trusted advisors we can count on to constantly provide creative and strategic ways to tell our story. They zero in on all our best practices and always come up with new and innovative ways to get our message out to the audiences that matter most to us.
We’ve definitely seen a positive impact on our business as a direct result of their efforts, including leads generated through our repeated coverage in The Toronto Star. They’ve also tapped into media channels that weren’t previously on our radar and these have yielded positive results for our company’s profile.

“Xylotek Solutions needed an organization like Brown & Cohen long before we realized how much we truly did… Experiencing high growth and numerous awards/recognitions each year has been a blessing we are most grateful for, however we were not taking advantage of the altogether too brief moments when the spotlight was shining on us as an organization. Opportunities can pass you by in a heartbeat, especially with the fleeting attention span of the media in general. We met with, and ultimately entered into an agreement with, Brown & Cohen several years ago, and have leaned upon their expertise in communications and media relations to greatly enhance the exposure Xylotek receives as we continue to achieve beyond our expectations! From preparing the basics such as media kits, website enhancements to communicate our news to our clients and potential interested media personnel, media training for our executives, and the day to day things such as press releases and pitching stories to all types of media, Brown & Cohen was there every step of the way to get it all done and done well. We deeply appreciate the impact this partnership has had, and the relationships we have developed with their staff, and wholeheartedly recommend them to any organization who needs this kind of expertise, and rest assured, this means you…”
