“I cannot say enough good things about my experience working with the team at LCI. You did a fabulous job, your commitment & enthusiasm for our project was exemplary. The personal & professional connection we feel for you will continue. I am not sure we ever could have entrusted our “baby,” this two-part television series for PBS, to anyone else.”

Sally Kaplan

Becoming Independent

“From our first meeting with LCI, we sensed that they were a highly capable, heart forward group of professionals who would do right by Becoming Independent (BI), which helps people with developmental disabilities lead productive lives. After immersing themselves in all things BI, they began imagining ideal stories to illuminate BI’s person-centered philosophy and approach to delivering services. By tapping into connections in the sports arena, LCI was able to do two incredible things simultaneously: make an absolute dream come true for two Bay Area sportscasters (and individuals served by BI) – Mauricio and Austin – while garnering several high profile media hits, including an above the fold front page story in our local Press Democrat as well as a feature piece on KPIX TV. THANK YOU, Team Landis!”

Luana Vaetoe, CEO, Becoming Independent

They helped us with a proactive and creative public relations, digital, SEO & SEM campaign that in just a few short months tripled BHR’s membership, increased minority participation from 8% to 21% & generated widespread media interest in such top tier outlets as The Today Show and & CBS Evening News. They understand healthcare & they understand communications. That is a winning combination.”

“We couldn’t hope for better results than we have gotten working with Landis Communications Inc. over the past several years.  Their strategic approach to public relations yields media placements that have been consistently stellar throughout the state and nationwide.  They have also helped us create an effective new program, ‘The State of Our State Parks Report Card,’ which surveys California residents about state parks and generates media interest statewide—and beyond—every year.  This campaign also helps us gain support for our Advocacy Day efforts in Sacramento.  In addition, they’ve helped us establish our statewide Earth Day program as the Foundation’s single biggest volunteer event in markets throughout the state, with media sponsors and coverage in LA, San Diego, the Bay Area, Fresno, Sacramento and beyond.  Most importantly, LCI provides us with sage strategic counsel and advice.  That helps us continue to successfully position our organization’s messages effectively to our constituents through an ever-changing media and governmental landscape.”

Save the Redwoods League – Justin Lindenberg

“We were on a call with Dan Winterson of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation yesterday, the primary funder for the McApin acquisition, and his first point about the project was … how fantastic the coverage was! He and his boss Ken Moore heard from so many people, who got wind about it through the news coverage, that they were really elated and also shared that with their board. It made them feel really special and that their support for the project was incredibly meaningful. Also, he said yes to more support for our pipeline projects. With the good vibes they got from this one, they’re thrilled to work with us on future projects!”
