But once we dig deeper, they realize that what they really want is to motivate, inspire, persuade, inform and entertain – all so they can sell more to more people more often.
We bring value to our relationships by taking a holistic approach to learning and understanding your business. Then, by immersing ourselves in all aspects of your brand, we bring you intelligent business solutions that add value and increase ROI. We act as a seamless extension of your marketing department amplifying your message to the media and the marketplace.
Public relations today is a different animal than it was even just a few short years ago. Strategic public relations is as crucial of a component as any other within your marketing arsenal. With the ubiquitous nature of information delivered today, one’s ability to cut through the clutter and deliver the proper message, to the proper audience at the speed of business, can be the difference between success and failure.
We identify the difference that makes the difference and turn up the volume grabbing the ear of the media sharing your message through the noise to reach the masses. Here’s how it’s done:
We begin with a meeting to set up and dial deep into your business, your challenges, your goals, and your dreams.
We ask tons of questions and really get to know your brand, your vision, and your mission.
Current assumptions are challenged and success metrics are agreed upon.
The collective brainpower of our clients and our senior agency team merge to finalize the plan that has the best potential for a “return on ideas”.
This becomes our collective blueprint for success.
And, we capture it all so you can maintain an overview of activity and we can collectively measure progress and course correct as needed.
We uncover the most telling statistics and merge them with compelling insight to develop strategy that inspires the smartest and most innovative creative possible.
It sounds serious, but it’s honestly fun.
We synthesize a variety of disciplines moving and creating in unison, from strategy to execution. It’s the most efficient way to get results.
We have the ear of the media.
Sitting in the heart of New York City where the media lives, we’re a cab ride away from your next big placement.
Here’s where the fun really grows. We amplify your most critical messages to the world and you get your business outcomes.
We take our clients’ business very personally. It started the day K2’s founder left ABC News. That same day Barbara Walters told her to always believe in what she was doing and to keep her integrity at all costs. We ultimately pick our clients as much as they pick us. We know that for a partnership to work there has to be a certain level of trust.
And trust takes time to build, especially when you first meet.
If you want partners aligned with your passion that possess an unwavering commitment to go above and beyond with the creativity and experience to achieve the desired results we have you covered.
Click on the categories below to see some examples of clients that have entrusted us with taking their public relations and brands to the next level.
We support the notion that at all levels our team deserves the opportunity to get to it, to dig in, get their feet wet, and have the chance to grow and drive real results. We strongly believe in continued learning. Not only do we believe in it, but we fund it for every employee.
Our team feels that K2 is their home away from home. We embrace the reality that to succeed today everyone needs a certain amount of work/life balance and K2 makes that a must for our employees. At K2 you’ll enjoy Summer Fridays where you get outside early when the weather is great. We’ve also built a number of flexible schedule opportunities within our team that empower our staff to get the most out of working with us while balancing life commitments.
K2 offers great benefits, competitive salaries, tremendous growth opportunities and lots of room for fun!
Our staff enjoys great quality medical and dental benefits as well as a matched self-directed 401(k) plan without vesting, transportation assistance benefits, flexible spending, generous paid personal and vacation leave, and more.
On a monthly basis, our company’s “Fun Committee” plans events allowing us to bond with one another on a personal level. We do things like relax at company picnics, sweat together in yoga classes, get competitive at our guacamole contests, enjoy good eats at pot luck lunches, go spinning, indulge in happy hour and much more.

What an honor it is to be recognized by Enterprising Women, especially with the other “enterprising women” who also share this honor with me. However, I recognize that I didn’t earn this award by myself. I share it with the others who made it possible – my K2 team, clients, and colleagues. Thank you, everyone! […]
“Thank you to all my current clients, past clients, colleagues and team for helping me become recognized by New York Business Journal as one of the inaugural class of Women of Influence. I’m certainly in great company and it’s pretty cool to be part of an honor that recognizes giving back and mentorship.” Read more about […]
Watching the Academy Awards, I found myself dancing along with Lupita Nyong’o, Meryl Streep, and Amy Adams as Pharrell Williams sang “Happy. “Clap along,” he sang, “if you feel like happiness is the truth.” Yes! “Clap along if you know what happiness is to you.” Yes! But then I wondered, as we celebrate the International Day of Happiness o March 20 (ActsofHappiness.org): How many of us really do know what happiness means and can do for us?
Tory Johnson has been a client of K2 and a friend of mine for years. But this moment in time is especially meaningful – for all of us. Not just because her new book THE SHIFT debuted at #1 on the hardest New York Times Bestseller List to crack but also because it was deeply personal.
We have worked with Oprah, Today, GMA, and a growing list of other shows to generate measurable results through integrations. But anyone with Internet access can discover that you can Tweet or email an idea for many of these segments. So why does a client need a PR firm to create, pitch, and manage this […]
PR is about measurement – you need and are expected by clients to measure everything. Creating opportunities that provide a direct link to products sold, clicks on a site, lead generation – things that can actually be measured from Point A (PR) to B (customer action) – make clients happy. Lately, we are finding tremendous […]
Missed Parts I & II? Click here. Season 25 of Oprah was one of the happiest times of my life. Not because we finally got Weight Watchers on the show with Jennifer Hudson (though that was great – our 18th client on the show!). During Season 25, I had my baby. And that baby, who […]
Missed Part I? Click here. In the years following my first “Unleash the Power Within” (UPW) Program with Tony Robbins in 1996, I met and grew close with Tony and his wife, Sage. I wasn’t his publicist, but our friendship and his authenticity made me believe that EVERYONE who did not know him should know […]
Oprah’s Tweetpic: “Me! Fire-walking! Last night!” Yes, that is Oprah Winfrey walking on hot coals – the camera catching her surprise, delight, and wonder as she puts aside any fear and dashes across the red-hot embers. By her side is Tony Robbins who 12 hours earlier had welcomed Oprah as a surprise guest at his […]
