PRESIDENT, BALLON DEVELOPMENT CONSULTING
Durée & Company’s commitment to excellence, creativity and out-of-the-box approach has set a new benchmark in providing results-oriented campaigns for any industry. With over two decades in pre-construction luxury developments, I understand the importance of engaging the right PR firm to create outstanding media opportunities in this very competitive space. Durée & Company exceeded my expectations when the firm was engaged to be the exclusive PR firm for both Hemisphere Sales Group and our client, Sabbia Beach. Securing two magazine cover opportunities in less than a week and creating newsworthy stories, Durée & Company successfully created a media campaign that put Pompano Beach on the map. President Durée Ross’ innate ability to manage any challenge, and the personal interest she takes with all of her clients, go above and beyond public relations.

DIRECTOR OF MARKETING, BRAVO | BRIO RESTAURANT GROUP
I have had the pleasure of working with Durée & Company since 2008. They have proven themselves to be an integral part of our day-to-day activities even though they are in South Florida and we are based in Columbus, Ohio. That said, they are tremendous communicators, diligent, organized and a priceless asset to our company. True business partners in every sense of the word, we see the positive impact they bring to our restaurants located in Florida through the positive media attention, PR and event opportunities presented to us and the follow through on making sure everything we do is promoted to the fullest.

SHAREHOLDER & ATTORNEY, BRYANT MILLER OLIVE P.A.
I resisted the whole idea of engaging a public relations firm for our law firm. I didn’t think we needed it and it just didn’t feel right. Within weeks, Durée & Company showed me how wrong I was. They invested a lot of up-front time getting to know us and tailored their services to our sensitivities and needs. At the same time, we learned from them how we could benefit from public relations services in ways we never imagined and with which we were totally comfortable. Durée & Company has found opportunities for us we never would have known about without them. They have enhanced our practices and provided experienced, solid advice. They have been there for us days, nights, and weekends. With Durée & Company, we made a wise investment. We also made good friends.

I just wanted to take a moment and extend sincere thanks for all your hard work supporting the team this month (and every month). On the heels of a very successful property launch, which was months of planning, your care and attention to the high level of support is wonderful. This particular property required an extra level of care and sensitivity, which presented some additional layers to work through. However, you were still able to deliver amazing coverage and meet the needs of the team/client. Thank you for always be available to ready and willing to meet challenges with grace and tenacity to deliver high caliber results. We appreciate you and are proud that you are on our team.

PRESIDENT, FRANCES HERRERA INTERIOR DESIGN
Durée Ross and her team deliver! Having used her services for my Interior Design business, she has set a new bar for what I consider service excellence.

She definitely means what she stands for which is “under promising and always over delivering!” Not only is she professional and creative, but also caring and a pleasure to work with.

CONSULTANT, CITY OF FORT LAUDERDALE PARKS & RECREATION DEPARTMENT, LAS OLAS OCEANSIDE PARK SYSTEM
Over the past twenty-plus years, I have worked with several Public Relations Firms on various client initiatives. From the start of our collaboration to launch the Las Olas Oceanside Park System, it was evident that Duree & Company and the team of “Dynamos” were not your average PR professionals. Their strategic approach to giving a platform for “the LOOPs’” purpose and place immediately set them apart. Nearly three years later, they continue to weave storylines and pitches that resonate across various media channels to keep our journey relevant and fresh, with new opportunities for the City of Fort Lauderdale to shine.
On the professional side, to say they’ve exceeded expectations would be an understatement. The sheer amount of coverage across various mediums – from print and online to the grand stage of television – is nothing short of remarkable. I have often wondered if they have a magic wand with our name engraved on it.
However, it’s not often you come across a team that excels not only in their craft but also in their interpersonal and communication skills. One of the many aspects distinguishing the D & Co Dynamos’ is their immediacy in communicating successful outcomes in both real-time and through detailed month-end recap reports. The extra touch of the “On behalf of our media outreach” email is the highlight of my inbox.
All that said, and beyond professional achievements, the “Dynamos” are quite simply a pleasure to work with. Their genuine commitment and the firm’s culture make every interaction enjoyable, fostering a partner relationship filled with shared success. As we continue our journey with them, I am excited to see how they’ll continue to work their magic for Las Olas Oceanside Park.
PRESIDENT, MARKER CONSTRUCTION GROUP

FOUNDER, MLE LAW
Smart, aggressive, dynamic and everything in between, Durée and her team are my number 1 asset! They’ve provided more meaningful exposure for me in 6 months than I’ve achieved in 16 years. In short, they’re worth every penny and then some! Oh, and they’re just plain good people. For me, there’s no better in the business!
FOUNDING PARTNER, MR. CANNABIS LAW
Having a PR agency in place was one of the best business decisions I could have made, and the results have certainly paid off!

CEO AND CO-FOUNDER, RISING TIDE CAR WASH
Over my 25 years of being a successful entrepreneur, I never hired a public relations firm. Based on my recent experience with Durée & Company, that was a mistake. When I created the social enterprise Rising Tide Car Wash in 2013, I made a clear decision not to use conventional advertising to power it, but rather to engage earned media to drive consumer awareness. In order to build this high profile, we needed top-notch PR talent. That’s what we got with Durée & Company. A good PR company gets you press, but a great PR company like Durée & Company teaches you how to handle it, and guides you through the process to get the best results. Durée takes a great interest in the success of our business. She is a fully integrated part of our management team, and there for us 24/7. This extra effort translates into exceptional results. Her intimate knowledge of our goals and strategies enables us to get the very best results from earned media and community outreach.
PROJECT MANAGER, RIVERWALK A&E DISTRICT
I have had the great privilege to work with Durée & Company for more than two years. Every single member of this firm is bright, engaging, creative and committed to exceeding their client’s expectations. Having been myself in the field of public relations and marketing for nearly 30 years, and working at several agencies throughout that time, I am well versed in what characteristics separate one agency from the next. I am pleased to share that Durée Ross and her team have a superior work ethic and complete understanding of the media and how to best leverage those relationships to deliver their clients maximum results. There is never a time that I, or any member of my team at the Riverwalk A&E District, make a request of the agency and are met with anything other than a positive, can-do attitude. The agency has delivered results for me at every turn and their enthusiasm toward helping me promote our cultural destination is exhilarating. Durée Ross and her team of professionals are among the finest in our industry. I look forward to having the pleasure of working with this amazing group for many years to come.

Her team was always quick to respond and worked around my busy schedule. I would absolutely recommend Durée & Company to anyone looking for a results-driven PR partner.
PRESIDENT/CEO, SPECIAL NEEDS GROUP/ SPECIAL NEEDS AT SEA
Prior to working with Durée & Company, we would spend money on magazine ads. We really did not see a return on our investment. Choosing to redirect our budget towards the PR services provided by Durée & Company was the best marketing decision we have ever made. Durée’s company has gotten us the television, newspaper, magazine, and local organization exposure we had yearned for. We feel that the money spent on Durée & Company’s services has given us an exponential return on our brand recognition. Money well spent.
