“…I like your honesty and professionalism, and you got us great press!…” Steve Federico, owner, Biscayne Tennis
“…I think you did a tremendous job considering how little time you had to write both. The newsletter is especially great. I like the graphics and the print is readable. I look forward to receiving it on a regular basis…” — Stephanie E. Clipper, Information Specialist, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
“I have got to give Linda Hamburger a lot of credit. She was able to get ME Productions great exposure with the article in the Miami Herald, on top of other public relations activities in other magazines. This is a great example of someone focused on getting results…” — Hal Etkin, CEO & President, ME Productions.
“Linda is a savvy media relations professional who’s quick to find just the right resource or contact for this freelancer’s fast-paced queries and story ideas. And for any over-worked journalist, that’s the best kind of PR pro to have on hand…” — Jeff Zbar, journalist.
“Linda Hamburger understands what editors need, and that’s why she’s so effective at what she does. When I need an image or story angle, I think of Linda because she ‘gets it.’ She’s quick, she communicates well, understands the business, and I don’t have to explain it to her twice. In my job, which is a little bit, uh, hectic, that’s worth its weight in gold. And as much copy as she’s placed with our publications, I’m sure its been worth a pretty good pile of gelt for her clients too.” — David Patten, Journalist / Editor
“In my work with Ms. Hamburger, I find that as a PR consultant, she takes a uniquely innovative approach to every task, in a field that is known for procedural conformity. Her approach combines the intelligent and pragmatic thinking of a practitioner, with the critical and analytical perspectives of a researcher. I find this approach refreshing and most appropriate for the field of PR.” — American University of Sharjah, Professor Jerry Kolo, School of Architecture + Design
