I am so thankful for the guidance Phyllis gave me through Golden Gate Academy’s website re-design process! She has an amazing eye for detail and a high level of excellence in her work that is directly reflected in our new website. She is incredibly organized and kept me updated on due dates and other important tasks that needed to be completed. I highly recommend Phyllis for any project management, marketing, and public relations needs you have!
Christi Zerbst, DirectorGolden Gate Academy
Nice job! I received the GGA [Golden Gate Academy] brochure for the Playground Improvement Project today.  It looks great!  Did you have an outside firm help with this or did you do this in-house? In any event, as someone who works with a lot of nonprofits, I see a lot of these materials – some well done, some not so – and this looks very well done to me.  Good work. Rick and I would be pleased to make a gift.  We’ll discuss it and let you know what level.

Phyllis Evans and Evans PR managed the public relations efforts for the Left Bank brasseries from 1997 to 2005. Phyllis developed the PR strategies that fueled strong openings at our Menlo Park and Pleasant Hill restaurants.

During the time that we worked together, Phyllis worked tirelessly to promote the Left Bank brand and trade name. She successfully achieved favorable media placement in numerous local and regional publications, television and radio spots, on-line sites and national trade publications.

Phyllis has been a strong contributor to our business and we thoroughly recommend her services.

Phyllis is super to work with, because she listens to us and takes appropriate action. I appreciate that she devotes great attention to detail and does a thorough job following up. She thinks of creative, cost effective ways to market our concept. She really helped boost RVBC’s awareness in the marketplace by creating a “name” for our chef and getting us into several local publications as well as national restaurant guides.

I was nearly broke when I started working with Phyllis Evans. Within a year, with her assistance, my folding motorbike business became quite successful, and continues to grow. Because of this success, I approached her to develop the image, brand, marketing and PR for several other products I developed including the TravelScoot, the WingWalker, and the NavPad.
Hardy Huber, PresidentDi Blasi of America, Inc.
Phyllis is a self-starter and takes on a project 100%. She keeps clients well-informed and current about all progress and media contacts, and is enthusiastic, diplomatic, and very conscientious. I appreciated her many useful professional contacts, and her good eye for a professional package and presentation, while keeping our budget in mind. She is patient with challenging personality issues, uses ingenuity and is creative. She is reliable, dependable and always follows through on commitments. She is enthusiastic and eager to get to work!

Phyllis has a unique ability to listen to technical information and transform it into easily understood message points. Her skill and writing style made complex issues understandable and resulted in a public presentation and press kit that was read and used.  The program Phyllis developed to publicize Fair, Isaac’s community meetings and prepare for site work caught the interest of the local press and the business publications as well. We’re very pleased with the results she achieved.
