“Pauline had a vision for celebrating the Consulting Alliance's 20th anniversary and leveraging it to increase our visibility. It was a huge success, largely due to Pauline's professional leadership of the project, her guidance, her creativity and her perseverance. As a side benefit, the members of the Alliance experienced increased teamwork that will ultimately result in more internal referrals and partnerships on consulting projects. Pauline is our hero!”

“The Mohawk Towpath Byway hired Pauline to prepare a 5th Anniversary Strategic Marketing and Promotion Plan. The plan was well written and detailed with ideas that we can pick up and implement at any time: some easy wins and some that reflect a broader effort that could be under taken with additional funding. We were so satisfied with the results that we hired her to focus on promoting two events that were a part of our 5th anniversary as one of America's Byways. Her efforts set the ground work so we accomplished the objective of telling the Byway story, our top priority for the year.”

“When considering ways to celebrate Creatacor’s 20th anniversary, I decided I needed some professional help. That’s when I called Bartel Communications. Pauline Bartel’s expertise and guidance proved to be invaluable, resulting in a very successful public relations campaign involving Helping Hands School, a not-for-profit organization right in our backyard. Pauline spearheaded our ‘Helping Hands for Kids’ campaign, which allowed Creatacor to do something extraordinary by giving to those in need.”

“Bartel Communications helped me develop a campaign to celebrate the 20th anniversary of my business. I wanted to put on a benefit for two Saratoga county charities. Pauline came up with a creative slogan for my event and developed press releases around the event. She got the event full-page coverage in The Spotlight newspapers and some additional coverage in other area newspapers, a local radio station, and a Schenectady cable television station. The benefit was a successful venture, raising almost $10,000 for the two charities. Bartel Communications has many creative and worthwhile services to offer its clients.”

The knowledge she demonstrated on crisis communications was impressive. She expertly illustrated through real live experience how important it is to take a proactive approach to managing your corporate image before, during and especially after a crisis occurs. I highly recommend Pauline for any company that is struggling to improve how their company is perceived by prospects and clients.”

“Art n Soul hired Pauline Bartel as a Public Relations Agent for a Valentine's Day Art/Music promotion we did with former NFL player Ian Allen and jazz musician Rena Graf.

I have also hired Pauline to speak to entrepreneurs about PR on panels at the Albany Chamber. I recommend her highly and enthusiastically.”

“Pauline Bartel of Bartel Communications Inc., is a true professional. I have known her many years through my former job as Staff Writer/Editorial Associate at the Times Union. She always came up with fantastic ideas for features and stories and always seemed to know exactly what fit. She is a great promoter herself and a wonderful teacher. I'd recommend her services in a minute!”

“Pauline stepped-in as a ghost writer when I most needed her on a deadline-driven, first-edition book that needed a strong writer but also a sensitive one due to the circumstances. She was always professional and delivered a book that has since gone into revision due to its initial success. The project would not have happened without her. It would be a pleasure to work with her again.”

Andrea Edwards

“I believe that everybody has a book inside them. In fact, I had written 25 pages of a book about the mechanics of prospecting, but I didn't know what to do next. Then I heard a presentation by Pauline Bartel of Bartel Communications, Inc., about her writing and editing services, and I knew I had to talk to her about my book. Pauline turned out to be a great resource, so I hired her. Using my manuscript as a starting point, she organized my rambling thoughts into a coherent outline; presented what I wanted to say in a clear, concise style that actually sounded like me; and turned into reality my book, Generate New Business: A Practical Guide to Setting (and Getting!) Appointments. Pauline was the perfect person for this project!"

“I have known Pauline for some time now. She has always demonstrated professionalism, creativity and deep knowledge about marketing, PR, writing, anniversaries...actually whatever she devotes her energy and time towards. Most recently, Pauline collaborated with me, and a team of powerful women, to plan the Women's Business Council's (Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce) 25th Anniversary. Pauline devoted her time and expertise to this important milestone, assisting us in marketing the event and creating the anniversary branding message: ‘The Women's Business Council Celebrating 25 Years of Partnership and Progress.’

Pauline is a consummate professional and I highly recommend her for any marketing, PR and/or writing needs you are exploring.”

Suzanne O’Connor, Associate Director

"Pauline's goal is to make her clients successful while providing the highest possible return on the investment. She is intuitive, insightful, smart, creative, forthright, honest, kind, and a straight shooter. Pauline's professionalism and talent position the client for fast-track success, while she graciously applauds from the sidelines. Pauline makes every client feel special, giving 100% and more. Pauline gets 'it' -- whatever the client's 'it' may be. I find it challenging to describe a professional relationship/service that has had such a dramatic, across-the-board impact on my business."

Alexis Graham, President

“I am happy to recommend Pauline. She knows the media community well and her creative spark gives public relations campaigns the energy and ‘stand out’ presence that really make a difference.”

"As a result of flooding that occurred in New York State between May and August 2000, a Presidential declaration of disaster targeted 28 counties to receive federal assistance to repair public facilities. At the Disaster Field Office in Albany, New York, Ms. Pauline Bartel was employed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in August 2000 to plan and prepare a brochure of 'Mitigation Success Stories' in New York State. This project was part of a community outreach program to motivate local communities to plan and implement mitigation measures that would reduce flood damage in future events. It was identified as a high-priority project by the Federal Coordinating Officer. 

Although the conceptual parameters of the Hazard Mitigation Program were new to Ms. Bartel, she quickly absorbed the relevant program information and led a team of mitigation specialists in the preparation of a four-color brochure. The resulting brochure was a high-quality professional product that was highly appropriate for the targeted audience and has received outstanding reviews from local, state and Federal officials.
Ms. Bartel's expertise and professionalism were key ingredients in this very successful project, and FEMA is grateful for the opportunity to have had Ms. Bartel as a member of the Mitigation team."
