TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST STUDENTS:
"I took Kambri's PR class a few months back, and it was unbelievably helpful. I am still so grateful for the tips she taught us. Thanks to her tips about setting google alerts for relevant subjects to our work, my writing partner and I were covered in the A.V. Club: http://www.avclub.com/article/black-actors-share-their-disheartening-audition-st-241626 And also internationally! http://www.ayoungertheatre.com/50175-2/ We care so much about the play we're working on, and I'm unspeakably grateful to Kambri for giving me the tools to spread the word. Thank you, thank you, thank you." -- Marina Tempelsman, Playwright
"I applied many of the things you taught me in your PR class and they are already paying off...
It's helped get my name and my new album out there and is getting me work. All things I'd hoped for. You're tools really helped me apply the ideas I had that made my stand-up and album unique." -- Liz Miele, Comedian
"Anytime someone has asked me for PR advice or suggestions in the past month, my response has been "Take Kambri's next class!" I cannot stress enough how knowledgeable and open Kambri is, generously sharing the expert tips she has accumulated over years of working in PR. These aren't vague or general suggestions; what Kambri discusses in class are completely implementable and realistic techniques to getting your work noticed. This is the real deal!" - Elizabeth Yuko, PhD. - Bioethicist
Kambri Crews PR class is a bargain. I left inspired and charged up, with a clear cut path and plan. I've worked side by side with PR professionals and social media managers, but this class still had a lot of information that I never would have thought of. The advice is not just technical (although there's plenty of that) but also emotional; how to overcome professional jealousy and use it to your advantage, how to get comfortable promoting yourself. These are things that only someone who's been through it could teach, and Kambri has not only the experience to back up her advice, but the heart. -- Sarah Hartshorne

I have a background in PR and Marketing, but marketing my own projects has always been a challenge. Kambri broke down the ins and outs in a way that I could easily map out my next steps. I'm looking forward to putting what I learned (and what I already knew) into practice in a new way! --- Katie C., Comedian
"Kambri's PR & Marketing 101 Class is jam-packed with detailed information on getting the word out there, effective means of communication and organization, and clever tips to reach the media contacts that are right for you and your project. Kambri is an experienced communicator and this workshop helped me become one, too. Highly recommended for anyone with a brand and a small budget." - Peter M., Producer & Solo Performer in NYC
Kambri was extremely welcoming and generous, even sharing personal stories that backed up the theory behind the marketing/PR class. The mark of a good teacher, she was interested in each of our backgrounds and how she could make the class more personalized and helpful to each of us. As for the new Q.E.D. space, it's absolutely gorgeous and very well thought-out. I can't wait to take more classes there and see how it becomes a popular go-to place in Queens." - Kelly M., Astoria
"Taking Kambri's PR class has completely revolutionized the way I handle comedy producing. Her tips and strategies have taught me how to take my shows to the next level. Shortly after taking her class and implementing her teachings, I have had write ups and interviews in publications I wouldn't even think of and am approached almost daily for producing help or advice. The one piece of advice I always give? Take this class." - Tovah S., Comedy Producer
