TESTIMONIALS

  • “As the CEO of Lapides Entertainment and The Core we have worked with Valerie for nearly 2 decades. She has provided superb public relations. Her strategies can sometimes be traditional. But, Valerie is willing to think through a PR initiative from a variety of different angles. That is where we find unique success. She has been on the Dr Drew PR team since day one. I could not ask for a better team member.”

    HOWARD LAPIDES
    CEO AT LAPIDES ENTERTAINMENT ORGANIZATION
  • “Valerie Allen represents the gold standard when it comes to public relations…as opposed to monolithic corporate PR, Val’s hands-on approach creates win-win situations for both her clients and the media. All you have to do is look at the popularity of Dr. Drew Pinsky to see how Val’s longterm commitment to supporting her clients pays off…it’s proof that a devotion to honesty and integrity CAN form the foundation of a positive, successful PR strategy!”

    THE LEE STRATEGY GROUP, INC
  • I am ecstatic to have found Valerie Allen Public Relations. As a classic introvert with extrovert tendencies, I’ve been known for most of my life as a “quiet doer. I’ve contributed a significant body of knowledge, research and practical applications toward the common good of our world, but many still were not aware of me even if they were familiar with my works. Valerie Allen, Dana Lewis and Armine Galstian and more changed that in a matter of weeks. My reach is now much farther and deeper than anything I could have ever imagined. My past contributions pale in the face of the momentum, resources and network of Valerie Allen PR. Well, you might ask then why did I not do this sooner? I’m a quiet doer and seeking attention is the antithesis of who I am, however I have a deep purpose and passion to spread love, light and insight to the masses. It was important to have a team that would partner with me, work hard for me, and take the time to get to know me, my aspirations, my strengths as well as my weaknesses. They get me!!! …with all of my eccentricities, concerns, and apprehensions. I’m honored and humbled to work with such a fine group of people. As a successful adult from a childhood of abject inner city poverty during the school year, and summers in rural farm country with my grandparents, I learned the value of hard and conscientious work…and thought I couldn’t be outworked. Valerie’s team works circles around me. I thought I was in the twilight of my career and I had accomplished much of what I set out to do, however Valerie’s machine has awakened something in me whereby I feel like I’m just getting started.
