Lisa has been an absolute pleasure to work with, and I’d recommend O’Neill Communication’s services to any organization looking for top-class, strategic public relations and earned media support. Thanks to Lisa and her team’s expertise, commitment to excellence and ability to adapt and pivot as needed, our organization has seen a dramatic and measurable increase in brand awareness across the state. She’s a pro in every sense of the word, and we’re lucky to have her support.

Since designing my business, now nearly 5 years ago, I trusted Lisa and Newton O’Neil Communications to announce our launch, celebrate our anniversaries, and even tackle a major PR push during our cyclical slower months. Each time, she surpasses my expectations, and positions my company in places and in resources where our potential clients can begin to learn about us. The media and press industry respond to her, clearly after years of building her own brand and quality service. I’m thrilled to benefit. Her team understands our sensitive client base and respectfully reaches them.

On any large project with lots of moving parts such as the four-day Texas Hill Country Wine & Food Festival, true PR success results only from quick responsiveness, media savvy and the ability to turn on a dime and troubleshoot with light-speed. Lisa O’Neill and her team did exactly that with astonishing results. Attention to detail, strong media relationships and good humor along the way from such a seasoned professional greatly contributed to the huge success of the 2011 festival.
