What our clients say

“Working with Vanguard has taken The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care to the next level. Kristin works tirelessly and diligently to understand our needs and thanks to her wide range of contacts and ability to continuously build new relationships across the nation she connected us with the most relevant media and publications. Kristin genuinely cares about the success of our events and the Foundation overall which has been proven by the incredible amount of coverage that we have received since working with her. She manages to balance a strong work ethic and kind nature with grace. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Vanguard to other organizations.”

What our clients say

“I have worked with many, many PR firms over a 25 year career in the fashion business and would highly recommend The Vanguard if you want an honest, no-nonsense approach to the business. Some firms just tell you what they think you want to hear. KristinAnn tells you what you ned to know to get the job done and from day one she has rolled up her sleeves and got the job done efficiently and effectively. I initially came to The Vanguard because I am a Canadian company who wanted PR assistance both in Canada and the USA. After working with The Vanguard, I would recommend them for any job in either country.”
