What people say about us
"What’s special about Joanne and Omar is they carry such a variety of expertise in philanthropy, nonprofit, media, and business sectors – which shows in their thinking and planning. Working with Defy Communications has been the best decision we’ve made. Joanne and Omar are razor-sharp strategists who help me hone and clarify my thinking. They turn work around fast and have been able to do a wide variety of tasks along a range of communications functions. I especially appreciate working directly with the Principals instead of being just another cookie-cutter account in a large PR firm. They have completely customized plans just for us and it is a much better value than I get with larger firms."
“We have worked with Defy since 2018 on several projects ranging from messaging to competitive landscape research to helping organize our external agency expertise. They bring big and fresh thinking, attention to detail, and commitment to our organization’s mission. They remain among our most trusted partners.”
“Joanne and Omar were the perfect partners for our national Tree Equity media campaign. They crafted a great strategy and helped us land many national, regional and local media placements and thought leadership.”
“Defy has proven invaluable in helping me think through how to best structure my team to accommodate a growing Schusterman Family Philanthropies. They continue to support as we look to optimize our programmatic communications moving forward and I’m thrilled to have them in my corner.”
