TESTIMONIALS

"Hiring Julie is one of the smartest moves The Bay Foundation has ever made! I'm so glad she had the confidence to apply to something a little outside her expertise. We are better for it.”
- Shelley Luce, D.Env., Executive Director, The Bay Foundation

"dubroWORKS is in a class of its own. I cannot say enough positive things about this company or Julie Du Brow. We hired dubroWORKS to represent one of our clients on a recent project. We were not only impressed by their work ethic and attention to detail; we were blown away by their drive and motivation. They even sought out potential opportunities that went above and beyond their scope. They took an interest in our client, their project and the subject matter in which they were working. dubroWORKS was well versed and knowledgeable. Julie was always responsive and replied in a timely manner. I truly could not have asked for more from them.
I know that I will absolutely hire dubroWORKS again in the future for my own projects and for my clients. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Julie Du Brow and dubroWORKS to anyone looking for a PR/Marketing firm. dubroWORKS is one of those rare companies that leaves you asking why everyone doesn’t work this way.”
- Jennifer Berthelot-Jelovic, Director of Sustainability, Shangri-La Construction

"Julie has been the powerhouse behind American Clay's constant presence in all of the trade publications, on the web, on TV and wherever a young company would want exposure. I am typically guarded about people and firms in the PR industry: I find they often do more posturing and yet rarely deliver what I would consider to be good value for the money spent. Julie has impressed me, over the two years I have been working with American Clay, with being quite the opposite: she is super diligent, and has singlehandedly assured a young company and product of exposure in places they never knew of. This has very much contributed to American Clay's name recognition, both within the industry and with consumers. She is completely self motivated and take charge. I do know that American Clay's VP of Marketing will tell anyone that Julie is the best money she could ever spend on growing her business.”
- Rick Kantor, Terrasanti (American Clay dealer and applicator)

"Julie is proactive and the additional member our executive team needed to brand our message and provide synergy with the media and consumer. People are unaware of the importance of PR in the success of a company and dubroWORKS brings PR expertise and quantifiable advantage to Barclay Butera Inc.”
- Haleh Fardi, CFO, Barclay Butera Inc.

"I wanted to thank you and your team supporting and publicizing our truly successful LEED-Platinum celebration. Every detail on your end was tended to and looked after from start to finish. As you know, I wasn’t a big fan of doing such an event as it wasn’t in my nature to garner the spot light, however, now having seen how well it came off and the numerous accolades that we received, I would do it again without question. Your approach was subtle, yet effective. We received local, national, and publication recognition, but it wasn’t over the top – it was targeted and appropriate.”
- Loren Witkin, Principal, Citadel Environmental Services, Inc.

"Julie is exceptional in her commitment to her clients. We have had dubroWORKS manage our PR for over a year and the results have been nothing short of incredible, and been a significant factor in this year's 400% growth in our business. Julie is thorough, tenacious and creative. She listens, completes ALL of her accountabilities, and is fun too!”
- Carol Baumgartel, Co-Founder/Marketing Director, American Clay Enterprises

“I could not be more pleased that we have the opportunity to work with Julie and her staff at dubroWORKS.  Not only do they provide the best work, service and results that we have ever experienced, they always take our programs and events a step further with their creativity and connections. They are an invaluable part of our success.”
- Christine Dzilvelis, Producer, AltBuild and AltCar Expos

“Julie has been great to get my children’s book and DVD launched. She is very result-orientated and has had numerous papers and national magazines cover me and the Bella Wishes Dance Troupe. She gives very personal and hands-on attention to her clients.”
- Tess Cacciatore, President , CarLou Interactive Media & Publishing“

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Julie for over 20 years. Her dedication and enthusiasm to the task is unparalleled. She is loyal, resourceful and tenacious. Julie gets the job done - her unique skills and vast relationships give her a distinctive edge, approaching each client challenge with integrity, intelligence, and creativity.”
- Julie Borchard-Young, Current: President, BY Experience, Inc. Former: Senior Vice President, Sony Music Entertainment

“Julie is the kind of hard-working, conscientious person that shows up and gets the job done. And as canned as this might sound, when it really exists, it's worth its weight in gold. But what most impressed me about Julie's work as a publicist for our organization was her ability to diplomatically cut through the crap during board meetings and get to the heart of our PR issues.”
- Joshua Dimondstein, MBA; Founding Member, Los Angeles Tribal and San Francisco Tribal

"Julie Du Brow is true PR talent with a rare combination of diligence, conscientiousness and integrity. It is always a pleasure working with her."
