Client Testimonial.

Where do I begin to tell the story of how in two weeks MEPR Team saved one of the largest city-wide educational events in the city of Nashville, Senior Day. In two weeks, I was expecting 1500 seniors on the campus of American Baptist College, Snapchat Engineer, Justin Washington, and countless tech people from Nashville and did not have a logistical or public affairs team in place to handle such excited students and the Nashville tech community members. Her team met with me and, with the skill of seasoned professionals, assured me that things would go smooth and that out event would be “the talk of the town.” In a matter of two weeks, we were indeed the talk of the town and principals have sent countless notes thanking us for a great program. MEPR is a firm dedicated to excellence in service, there was no question or concern to large or two small to be addressed. Without reservation and with a great deal of trust, I recommend MEPR.
