“Fleishman-Hillard Canada worked with Andrea Holwegner on a Canada-wide media tour. Fleishman-Hillard Canada was engaged in June to conduct a media tour in July. This was exceptionally tight timing, especially given that our client’s national mandate meant that we targeted eleven English-speaking markets. Throughout, Andrea was accommodating, professional and an exemplary spokesperson. Her passion for healthy living, paired with her confident and enthusiastic delivery resulted in extremely positive, well-messaged coverage. We look forward to working with her again.”
