“Samantha and her team are talented, creative, and professional. They have exceeded expectations at every turn, taking our public relations efforts to new levels. Their innovative, thoughtful approach has yielded tremendous results.”  

Kelly Dalton

Director of Corporate Communications, Best Western Hotels & Resorts

The team at Hemsworth Communications is always innovating new methods to drive traffic and increase visibility. We consistently see an increase in our website traffic and registrations resulting from their PR efforts, which is incredibly encouraging as we’re in the process of developing our $750 million resort. In addition, after recently working with us to host a successful hotel groundbreaking ceremony with more 20 target media members in attendance, I can say with confidence that the company is at the top of its game. They are extremely professional and strategic in their media placements. Hemsworth’s team support is always professional and well respected in media circles which allows clients to garner coveted media impressions.

It was such a pleasure to work with the Hemsworth team during a recent press trip in Europe. One of  the best PR interactions I’ve had for a while. I really enjoyed working with them. They are professional,  yet fun, and allow us to work within our needs to promote their client way that we see fit for our  audience. I appreciate that, and it’s rare, trust me. I WANT to work again with them again!!”

After working with a larger firm for many years, we decided to hire Hemsworth as our public relations  agency of record. We were looking for a team that was different from the rest – one that was not  corporate in feel, but had passion for what they did. Samantha and the Hemsworth team had everything  we were looking for right from the beginning. They have been proactive and communicative about our  company. Their dedication and commitment exceeds the norm, and they bring talent and creativity to  every aspect of their work.  For me, working with the Hemsworth team is not really like work at all.”

After an extensive selection process, it was evident to us that Hemsworth Communications was the firm  that had the most passion about working with us. We also felt like they had taken the time to understand  our brand and what we were trying to accomplish and to this day, I am pleased to say that this has not  changed.”

Wonderful experience working with Hemsworth and AmaWaterways. The agency provided a very detailed  itinerary before the trip (which this type A personality appreciated!) and ran a smooth and successful  experience.”

The Hemsworth Communications team could not have been more pleasant and professional during our  recent press trip in The Netherlands and Belgium. They watched over us like mother hens, making sure  our needs were met and our questions answered. I would be happy to work with them again.”

Since I began working with Samantha Jacobs in 2008, I have been most impressed with her ability to understand exactly what I need as a reporter. From crafting pitches to meet my needs and being able to place the value of their clients into a larger industry framework to being readily available to get me the information I need, Samantha and Hemsworth are a valuable resource to me as a journalist.

The recent AmaWaterways press trip I attended was one of the best press trips I have ever been on! I  especially appreciated the dinner where Hemsworth asked the group for their opinions on working with PR  reps, press trips, etc. This certainly shows the professionalism of Hemsworth!”

My experience from working with Samantha over the past five years has shown me that she has a  diverse range of skills and can collaborate with any team on any project. The Hemsworth is always willing  to take on new challenges and provide fresh, innovative ideas to enhance recognition. The strategic  approach Hemsworth takes yields impressive results turning creative ideas into highly visible campaigns  that drive revenue. Hemsworth is a very valuable public relations and marketing resource for us.”

Former Director of Public Relations and Marketing, Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort

I have had the pleasure of working with the Hemsworth Communications team for almost two years.  Samantha Jacobs is a consummate professional. Having spent several years in the public relations industry myself, I truly understand and appreciate the efforts and creative strategy that go into the execution of a successful PR campaign. Recognizing the ever-changing industry of the travel and hospitality world, Hemsworth has adapted a style that goes far beyond traditional PR, incorporating creative marketing strategies that guarantee results. Samantha has a unique talent to connect with every person she meets, as well as the ability to anticipate the client’s needs. Her close-knit staff is a  reflection of the strong relationships she builds with everyone, including the media. I consider  Hemsworth to be a true partner and extension of the Sonesta team. I only wish we had more properties  in need of an agency so that I could hire her again!”
