We’re Barb Harris and Sharon Kreher, partners of teamworks communication, an agency that’s helped nonprofit organizations and consumer product companies since 1997. We excel at:

Sharon started her career with Hill & Knowlton; Barb with Edelman Worldwide. We met when we worked together at a regional PR firm, managing the Good Humor-Breyers and Einstein Bros Bagels accounts.
We helped form a network of seasoned PR pros in 1999 (PRConsultants Group) so that we could offer clients capabilities in virtually any market in the United States. Many of these PR consultants are people with whom we had worked for 7-Eleven and Blockbuster. We have managed multi-market projects using this network of professional for:
With each of these clients, we brought together top-notch pros in the markets needed and managed the process from start to finish, providing stellar results and freeing our clients to focus on other aspects of their business.
Our name, teamworks, is more than just a moniker, it’s the way we do business. We become part of our clients’ communication team for the life of a project, and with many clients, for long-term communications counsel and execution:
- 7-Eleven: Part of their team for 18 years, managed local market promotions in Phoenix and St. Louis, including radio promotions, grand openings, and media relations.
- Blockbuster: Worked together for 15 years, developing and coordinating radio promotions, producing special events, executing store grand openings, and generating media coverage for them in St. Louis, Phoenix and Tucson.
- For 19 years, teamworks produced donor newsletters for the St. Louis Area Foodbank, raising a profit of more than $1.9 million during that time, with an average fundraising ROI (return on investment) of 4.4.
- We partnered with Make-A-Wish on the Macy’s Believe Campaign and with Tempe Community Action Agency (for 4 years each)
- Other long-term current clients include Feed My Starving Children (10 years), Tempe Empty Bowls (6 years), and United Food Bank (4 years).
