About Best Public Relations

best public relations


Here at Best Public Relations, we specialize in influence. We are a full-service agency that excels at creatively influencing the public, the press and the influencers themselves around the globe.

As one veteran business reporter said said in 2009, “Best PR is the equivalent of the Hollywood agent – far more than merely providing PR support but making the introductions and facilitating the relationships with key people that make deals happen.”

We are passionate about helping you build the relationships that matter to you most. Best PR is based in New York City and San Francisco.
