FMC Employees Excite Middle School Students About Science

Sometimes a picture paints a thousand words. That was certainly the case after employees from FMC Corporation visited Philadelphia’s Academy of Natural Sciences to lead local middle schoolers in interactive workshops on STEM careers. The scientist volunteers shared hands-on activities with 1,200 sixth through eighth graders over the course of two days. The students explored maps, played with their food and even handled cockroaches. Simon PR shared feature photo captions with the media and placements were secured in the Amboy Guardian, Bucks County Herald, the Home News Tribune and Roxborough Review. One particularly captivating photo of an employee with a crawly friend graced the pages of NJBIZRead more.

Two Sisters Give Birth to Baby Girls on the Same Day

You couldn’t blame Holy Redeemer Hospital staff for thinking they were seeing double. Two sisters, originally scheduled to give birth approximately 10 days apart, ended up delivering baby daughters at Holy Redeemer Hospital within a few hours of each other on Monday, January 19.

Timing was a critical factor. In order to maximize the story, we had to move quickly – to give media a chance to interview the mothers and get the all-important baby photos. Other factors also came into play – the timing coincided with a news cycle that included Pennsylvania Governor Wolf’s inauguration as well as President Obama’s State of the Union speech. In addition, the onset of a major winter storm threatened to close whatever window existed.

But good news won out. The rare coincidence drew the attention of several local newspapers, including The Northeast Times and Montgomery Newspapers’ Globe. In addition, Philadelphia’s local Fox 29 news crew came out to film the happy families and the story was picked up by numerous Fox outlets across the nation. Read more.

We hired Simon PR to position us as a transformational leader in Philadelphia’s nonprofit sector.  They help us better communicate not just what we do, but why it’s important.  We’ve enjoyed a considerable increase in our media coverage and with that, have come increases in charitable and foundation gifts. I appreciate their strategic planning, responsiveness, creativity and determination. Best of all, they’re humble.  That makes me feel confident that for them, the client is central.
