What Do THEPRBAR Clients Have to Say?

Client Testimonials

Lara Schmoisman


The Darl Agency

“PR is so relevant to every marketing plan, not only for authority but also for relevance. Very few agencies are able to offer a comprehensive strategy. Lexie helped us to implement our PR department and she held our hand every step of the way. She gave us actionable tips and tools for immediate results. Working with Lexie was one of the best decisions I made as Agency owner.


District Bliss

“Lexie is brilliant, approachable, and just a delight to work with! I cannot recommend THEPRBAR inc. enough! AH-MAZING!”

Attendee Responses: 

“This was absolutely the best workshop I’ve attended all year! Well done! Very Informative”
“I wanted to personally thank you so much for organizing the training with THEPRBAR inc. It was truly insightful, and I loved how Lexie was so genuine with her responses!”
“Really clear and super helpful, thank you!!!!”
“This was so wonderful, thank you for sharing such valuable information!”
“One of the most practical workshops I’ve attended all year.”



10 / 10 would recommend the lovely Lexie Smith for learning all the PR things while meeting you where you currently are in your business. This was easily one of the best investments I have made in my business. Lexie taught me so much valuable information, helped me to identify IMMEDIATELY available PR opportunities and by the end I had a full tool kit of at least 10 easy to implement strategies (NOT tactics or hacks). On a personal note, she is also just so kind and makes the PR world easy to understand and accessible. HIRE HER!!



“I really knew nothing about PR, and after my training with Lexie I sort of feel like I have the insiders handbook at my fingertips! I learned so much that is going to help my company grow!

Will I recommend this to friends and colleagues?
