As a copywriter for several online outfits, including Examiner.com and CBSLocal.com, I have worked extensively with Ms. Lewis on a professional basis. I find her to be dedicated, organized, and always willing to provide assistance. Lauren’s personality makes her approachable and a pleasure to work with. She is congenial; there is always a smile on her face, she is patient even under stressful circumstances, and always trustworthy. Not once has she not delivered what she has promised. In Lauren you get both a professional and efficient worker as well as a high quality, compassionate, human. I have grown to know her as someone who dedicates her personal time to feed the homeless and who is involved with organizations like ASPCA (animal cruelty prevention) and the like.

Lauren Lewis is among the most dedicated, inventive, and tenacious PR professionals with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working. Ms. Lewis consistently creates and effectively promotes events for her clients that capture my imagination and pique my interest. As a blogger and journalist, having me attend an event is one of the biggest challenges a PR professional can face given the multitude of other events to which I have been extended invitations. She works her magic, and I show up and am always glad I did. I look forward to many more PR events helmed by Lauren Lewis.

Lauren Lewis is easy to work with, “gets it” and consistently produces outstanding results. Lauren has publicized a diverse series of events over the years for our organization including our annual gala fundraisers, benefit jazz concerts, annual large-scale outdoor Thanksgiving events, 40th anniversary block party and so on. In every case, her press advisories and follow-up with her contacts have spurred a positive response from local print and broadcast media. Through Lauren’s efforts, Union Station Homeless Services has enjoyed some of the most prominent and in-depth media coverage in our history. She has been an excellent asset to our agency as her work is always first-class!
Marvin M. Gross – CEO Union Station Homeless Services
I had the pleasure of contracting with and to work closely with Lauren Lewis as she supported the opening of the Arcadia Unified School District’s $25,000,000 new Performing Arts Center. Lauren and her staff coordinated all of the promotion, ticketing, and logistics for our gala opening with Mr. Paul Anka on October 27, 2012. Lauren demonstrated the ability to conceptualize what our needs were and to bring together a team of people to translate our vision into a reality. Lauren’s unique ability to work on various aspects of a project was essential to its success. More than 1000 people had a night to remember and we inaugurated our new facility in a manner that represented everything we wanted to do largely because of Lauren’s work.
Joel Shawn – Superintendent, Arcadia Unified School District
Lauren Lewis has been a key member of the California Philharmonic team for the past three years, handling all of our Public Relations needs, as well as performing other crucial tasks as needed. Unlike other publicists we have had in the past, Lauren has been completely hands-on in her efforts. She has not only cultivated relationships, written press releases and editorial copy for publications, and hosted press at our events, she coordinated press conferences, liaised with the various publicity teams of our guest artists and contributed to our social media presence. In addition to her PR work for Cal Phil, she has expanded her skill set to encompass media buys, sponsor development, fundraising and community relations. I whole heartily recommend Lauren as part of any team. She possesses the qualities necessary to get the job done; a tenacious spirit, professional demeanor, unflagging commitment and the ability to meet all deadlines. Lauren always creates a wonderful hook that captures peoples’ attention and imagination and this is crucial for ensuring that messages generated by her clients are picked up and distributed by the media.

As the publicist for many Los Angeles area non-profit groups such as California Philharmonic and Union Station Homeless Services in Pasadena as well as retail businesses in many Los Angeles county communities, I have come to recognize, respect and have a high regard for Lauren Lewis’ writing as well as her innate ability for superb follow-ups on a timely basis. In fast-paced media, deadline-driven world, Lewis produces accurate and clean copy summarizing the event(s) without rhetoric. Lewis’ attention to detail and arranging a seamless event experiences for photographers and reporters on tight deadlines is second to none. Moreover, Lewis’ personality, sense of humor and competence is invigorating with so many PR people pitching stories to us – Lewis just seems to have the perfect propensity for timing and her crisp approach helps get the message across and consequently in print. Lewis, undeniably, will be an immeasurable asset to any company that wants to develop new partnerships.

If you want a publicist who is kindly aggressive and knows our business, and is always there for you, Lauren Lewis is one of the few that meet that criteria. She is a blessing in disguise, as she loves people first. I have known and worked with Lauren for close to two decades and she consistently proves to be professional, creative, effective and highly respected within the industry.

Having worked with Lauren Lewis, I have been extremely pleased with the results. During the theatrical release of NIGHTMARE MAN, Lauren was instrumental in spreading the buzz and generating great press for my film that helped make it a standout during After Dark’s Horrorfest and a top DVD seller through Lionsgate in 2008. Her guidance helped me land another directing gig and I am confident that even better things lie ahead in my career with the assistance of Lauren Lewis’ support and impressive PR skills.

Lauren Lewis was referred to Seven Arts Pictures by Variety more than four years ago when we were inquiring about publicists. Lauren has been our go to publicist ever since. She is as effective on a moments notice as she is with plenty of time to generate well written Press Releases that generate significant results. Lauren has worked many Cannes Film Festivals with us during which she secured exposure for our company as well as individual films, directors and talent. She was also a tremendous asset in making our annual parties on the Yacht a fantastic success attended by many trade, national and international media.
