Beatrice and I worked together on the online publicity campaign for Wilson Phillips "Christmas In Harmony" release. She was an excellent partner - highly creative, results-driven and collaborative. I look forward to working with Beatrice again in the future.
Angela Barkan - Vice President of Marketing, S-Curve Records / BMG
I worked as a colleague with Beatrice and was very impressed with her work ethic and the results she produced. When I was in a position to hire a publicist, I specifically chose a firm Beatrice worked with since I already knew she would get the job done, get great exposure, and stay focused on the project. I was once again impressed with her work - she got extensive exposure for the project and was friendly and great to work with.

Beatrice and I worked together on the New York Songwriters Circle 25th Anniversary. I had many High Profile artists that night, including John Oates, The Hooters, Jessie Harris (Norah Jones), Gary Burr and Hugh Prestwood...to name a few. She was passionate and the choices she made to promote my company were outstanding. I have recommended her to so many musicians, and songwriters I know and everyone loves her work. It is not easy to find this level of care and concern. I will continue to use her for the future and highly recommend her talent and skill set.

My firm has had the pleasure of working with Beatrice multiple times over the years. Not only is she extremely focused and driven, she also has marvelous contacts and is very well connected and respected in the industry. I know that when I work with Beatrice on a project, I can always count on her to come to the table with thoughtful and innovative ideas that are tailored specifically for the client in question. I always look forward to opportunities to work with Beatrice and her team, as I know they will bring forth the necessary skills and professionalism for a successful campaign.
Maria Brunner - Owner, Insight Management
Beatrice led the team that supported an important CD release for me. She brought an organized and thoughtful strategy to the project, she was responsive and organized, and when we wanted extra hands for social media or streaming strategies, she had the people and horsepower to meet those goals. I could not have been more satisfied. I bet I'm not alone among her clients who came away not only extremely pleased with how Beatrice and her team delivered but feeling that I'd made a real friend.

“Working with Beatrice Kimmel at EMPKT PR is like having a best friend in the business. She and her team approach each project with care, professionalism, and creativity. A natural born “connector,” Beatrice thinks outside the box, always exploring new avenues to promote her clients. It’s comforting to work with someone who genuinely loves artists! I am so grateful for the outstanding exposure that my work has received thanks to EMPKT!"

Beatrice and her team are top notch. I’ve worked with her on multiple projects over the years. She helped me successfully launch my All Star Anthems album as well as my book Be The Change book and garnered me press when I was on tour. Top notch!

I have worked with Beatrice on several projects and found her to be well organized, easy to work with and willing to go the extra mile to make sure we achieved our goals. She is a great idea person and brings great resources to the table. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

I have worked with Bea on a number of projects through the years, and she has always been a joy to work with. She embodies a rare combination of warmth, personal touch, genuine caring, generosity, and high-level skill and professionalism. Simply put, she knows her stuff. Perhaps what has impressed me most of all is her ability to make one feel as if they're in the best and most competent hands, while continually exceeding expectations. She inspires confidence and gets the job done. Whatever your business goals are, Bea is a wonderful ally to have.
