Our Core Capabilities

Media Relations

With more than 25,000 media contacts worldwide, DeFazio Communications is among an elite group of small agencies with relationships to secure national media coverage for clients. We have the experience and skills to know what types of media matter most and how to get them.

Media Training

Preparing spokespeople for interviews is vital to any public relations effort where company executives are not seasoned in the ways of media. We provide crisp message points and sharp interviewing techniques to ensure clients are prepared to capitalize on their media opportunities.

Thought Leadership

We provide specialized services that position subject matter experts (SMEs) as thought leaders via speaking opportunities and ‘contributorship’ programs in trade journals and business media. More than a fancy term, thought leadership is a strategic tool for business growth.

Issue Advocacy

With origins in politics, we have successfully led local and national campaigns that change the public’s thinking on time sensitive and highly visible issues. We know how to build win-win partnerships with sometimes opposing interest groups that come together for a common cause.

Community Outreach

Sometimes, clients require hyper-local communications and public relations outreach programs. In those cases, we develop highly-targeted media and stakeholder-outreach strategies that mobilize key constituencies in local communities to support an important cause.

Social Media

We evaluate content your target audience consumes and how they participate with your brand. We immerse ourselves in the company’s culture to develop content in the brand’s unique voice and create shareable, clickable content that inspires audiences to want to engage the brand.

Executive Leadership

As an advisor to CEOs of some of the largest and fastest growing companies in America, we offer proven solutions for coaching and strategic communications programs, including media training and speech development programs that position executives as leaders.

Crisis Communications
