Lorrie Delk Walker
I wake up every day excited about what I do, and I go to sleep every night feeling fulfilled by the job I have done. I’m Lorrie, founder of Lorrie Walker Public Relations, and the force that drives me is enthusiasm. In addition to helping clients promote themselves and their businesses, I host a weekly radio segment on Mayhem in the AM called Lorrie’s Stories, where I discuss local, national and international PR hits and misses, because I’m a fan from learning from others’ successes and failures. You can tune in live in Lakeland at 7:40 a.m. Eastern every Monday to 1430 AM or 96.7 FM. I frequently broadcast the segment on Periscope, as well: @PRLorrie.
My clients are much more than a business relationship to me; they are friends whom I have come to know and admire. It’s the type of friendship that compels me to broadcast their stories to the world through captivating content, expert-level SEO utilization and media placement that results in measurable ROI.
Combine genuine passion with an extensive (and intensive) background in journalism, public relations and business—earned right here in the great state of Florida and abroad in the United States Army—and you can be sure I possess the skills, sensibility and determination to deliver well beyond your expectations.
