Testimonials

Cherish Women’s Cancer Foundation

Prof Andreas Obermair
Director

Our association with KDPR began in 2010.  This creative and new-age enterprise has been instrumental in establishing and raising our profile locally and state-wide.

KDPR have provided us lucrative media connections and opportunities, thereby establishing our media presence within the community.

Not only have they afforded us ample brand exposure, they’ve been crucial to the success of our signature fundraising campaign, the Battle Against Ovarian Cancer.  The Battle is a beach volleyball tournament held at five-time Olympian Natalie Cook’s Sandstorm Arena in Nathan, Brisbane. In 2012, we raised over $85,000 for gynaecological cancer research.

In 2013, we had over 1000 people through the gates and raised over $125,000.  KDPR has positioned the Battle as a major community event through their savvy, unrelenting media campaign which includes loyal commitment from Channel 9 and B105.  We are excited to have KDPR on board once again for the Battle 2014.

What is it that sets KDPR apart from the rest? Without a doubt, it’s the genuine heart they inject into our cause of securing a better future for all women.

We are proud and fortunate to call KDPR our PR partners.

Boystown

Tracey Gillinder
National Marketing & Communications Manager

From our first meeting, KDPR understood our brand, our business objectives and the communications challenges we were immediately facing. Their energy, innovation and smarts have delivered our desired outcome of increased media visibility, on a national scale, and successful mitigation of media issues that have emerged.

This team genuinely cares about their clients, and the team at Boystown looks forward to a long term working partnership with the team at KDPR.

Finer Finishers

Matthew Hunsche
Owner

Before KDPR, Finer Finishers had never considered engaging a PR Company to promote the business. We are in the furniture making and French polishing trade and I never thought it was the type of industry which could benefit from public relations, but I was wrong on all accounts.

KDPR looked closely at my company and the type of custom joinery pieces we create and restore, and developed a strategic publicity plan to promote what we do – ideas I had never thought of!

The team always keep me up to date with their communications plan for Finer Finishers, and have strategically placed me in the media by finding a TV program that suits my business and meets my target market, and have profiled us in the local newspapers.

KDPR also redesigned our website which I am very happy with. In closing I would like to say the team at KDPR looked at my business from a different angle and I am confident their fresh approach will launch my business into its next stage.

Fairfax Media

Karl Sikora
State Marketing Manager QLD & WA

Fairfax Media have engaged KDPR for a number of our large scale events including the awards function of the brisbanetimes.com.au Queensland Good Food Guide and the inaugural PR launch of the City2South fun run.

KDPR are more than your run of the mill PR company and it shows in everything they do. The staff at KDPR become more than suppliers, they become an extension of your own team. Everyone we have dealt with at KDPR is dedicated, hard working but also know how to make things fun – they go above and beyond the call of duty every time.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend KDPR, in fact I have already recommended them to local and interstate colleagues.

We have worked with KDPR over the past three years on a range of projects. We have been thoroughly impressed on all occasions.

The team undertook a complete and acclaimed rebrand of our organisation, and developed a strategic communications strategy to lift our marketing to the highest professional standard and for a diverse stakeholder base across Australia, Abu Dhabi and Kuwait.

KDPR also prepared Bothar for an IPO, including writing and project managing the design and production of our Prospectus. The team can cut through a complex situation, strategise and deliver effective outcomes. They have my ringing endorsement.

Youngcare

David Conry
Chairman

We have engaged KDPR on a number of occasions over the past eight years to assist us in developing and managing the reputation of our organisation.

KDPR’s advice is always spot on, they consistently deliver comprehensive communication strategies that achieve the best outcomes, and just as importantly they provide invaluable support to us in dealing with issues that arise.

Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are empathetic to the not for profit nature of our work, this empathy is not a given with PR firms. It’s good to have them on your team.

The First Group

Rebecca Gascoigne
Group Marketing Manager

Retail First has utilised the PR management services of KDPR since 2004, in various areas including crisis management, good news stories, media training, corporate documents, and assisting to put together work plans for major projects.

On all occasions we have been more than impressed.  The professionalism of the team is demonstrated in the outstanding results attained, and the efficient manner that the work is carried out.

We worked closely with the KDPR on our most recent major project, and found them to be accessible, keen to take our story to the next level, and focussed on going beyond our expectations.

We could not have achieved the same result without KDPR managing the PR campaign, and they were a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend KDPR in all areas of PR service.
