Founder/CEO of my own PR firm for the past 9 years, Melissa Berger Public Relations in Los Angeles, New York and other cities- Focus on everything from Talent, Events, Brand Partnership/Brand PR, Lifestyle, Film, etc.
I have been in PR for the past 10 years, started at a medium size boutique PR agency, where we focused on Talent, Lifestyle and Events. I ventured off and started my own PR firm about 9 years ago where we have client range of TV/Film Actors, Music, Personalities, film, to name a few.. We also focus on brand PR with different brand clients, collaborations, as well as talent relations with the brand. Event PR is another venture we focus on at my firm, if its events at Sundance, Film Festivals, Award Shows, Movie Premiere's, launches, etc. We also get our hands dirty in the lifestyle, expert work of PR as well.. I can give great advice in how to get started, where your passion has to lie to be able to be successful in this line of work, how PR is targeted and works to gain exposure and relevance with any client you take on, as well as thinking outside the box when it comes to branding anyone and anything you take on.. We are a very up front and realistic firm that will give you the advice you need from start to finish. I have also been a guest speaker at a handful of colleges that focuses on "life after college" in the work field of PR... and many many more other topics that can not fit in this space.. :) We also consult with different companies that focus around media relations, marketing, publics relations and talent relations/events.
