"I’ve known and worked with the executive team at Hayworth PR for more than 15 years.  Their knowledge of the industry and level of professionalism are exceptional, and, most importantly, they generate real results.  On the domestic and international fronts, both the media and industry respect Hayworth Public Relations for the direct and tactical manner in which they approach projects and the creative way programs are executed. I find them to be exceptional and true leaders in the tourism industry."

"Hayworth Public Relations has been our PR agency for more than 13 years.  It is very rare that we retain the services of a third party for so long, but Hayworth has consistently helped us stay on the cutting edge of media and consumer trends and been a forceful and resourceful partner.  They have helped keep us in the public eye with current, interesting and enticing press materials – exposure I could never pay for in advertising.  After all these years, they’re still able to come up with fresh ideas, clever angles and new and appealing initiatives for us."

"Hayworth PR is always one step ahead of me. They send timely ideas, are always ready with drool-worthy photos, and find my published articles before I even send the link. I thought only my mother did that. Best of all, the press materials they send me are actually relevant to what I do. Hayworth makes it easy for me to say yes."
