What Our Clients Say

“Leslee, I’d like to commend you for being such a conscientious steward for the success of your clients.  As a media consultant of over twenty years, I must say you are one of the most determined and dedicated agencies I’ve ever worked with.  You are the very first person to ask for digital reporting of our linear product in all the time I’ve been in the business AND get it for free even though there was an extremely high hard cost!  That’s talent, and you have it.  I congratulate all of your clients for choosing such a fierce and protective agency to handle their immensely important business.  They are in very good hands.”

“Now that I have a tiny moment to breathe, I wanted to reach back out and let you know how much I appreciated you jumping right in yesterday and saving me 🙂 The copy is really outstanding. The car signs in particular are, in my opinion, some of the finest we’ve ever had. They are easy to read, interesting and the cultural significance and personal ties to the LeMays are just perfect. People of all interests are going to really enjoy reading them. The exhibit copy is engaging and fun to read as well. This is going to be a really nice exhibit and your work has greatly contributed to that. Thank you!”

“As marketing and communications director at the Greater New Orleans Foundation, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Leslee on numerous projects. There is a lot of jargon in the foundation field, and Leslee cuts through it all to provide concise, poetic, and memorable copy. I often write her and say, help, we need your pixie dust,’ and what she returns is simply gold.” 
– Martha Landrum, vice president, marketing and communications, Greater New Orleans Foundation

“The copy you wrote was the best I’ve seen in five years. Your word choices and styling were sophisticated, prestigious. Without any compass or GPS you were already getting the destination. I thought, ‘Wow, this could really be a match. This could work.’ You can put that on your website. You can write any testimonial you like and put my name to it.”

-Berny Dohrmann, founder/chairman, CEO Space International

“Leslee, your conversation with Paul Chappell is one of the best interviews we’ve ever printed. I’m so glad to share his work with our readers.”

“Leslee, we are in awe of your ability to make sense of all that information and craft it down into something short, readable, and compelling! Strong, energetic, we love it!”

-Paula Mestayer, M.Ed., LPC, FAPA, founder Springfield Wellness Center

“Very few writers can take the jumble of ideas and actions that represent our work and then translate them into a coherent message. Like a shaman who can straddle the worlds, Alchemy brings fresh, lucid coherence to complicated subjects and communicates them so compellingly, constituents are moved to action.”

-Richard McCarthy IV, executive director Economics Institute, marketumbrella.org

“We contracted with Alchemy to raise the funds to cover a two-year, six-figure funding shortfall. In nine months, they delivered that and more. We now have the donor relationships and systems in place to cultivate a continuing source of funds to support our program growth.”

-Jennifer Freed and Rendy Freedman, co-founders/co-directors Academy of Healing Arts

“Just wanted to thank you for helping us once again. Your writing made a difference in all four new candidates being successful.”

-Paul Christiansen, account executive LeBlanc & Schuster

“We worked with Alchemy On Demand from 2003 through 2008, and they were an invaluable resource to us. Their expertise in writing, professionalism, and integrity, not to mention the excellent quality of their work, has changed the face of our organization. Alchemy has taken us to a new level of success in grant funding and in public awareness through media relations. Any group or business that hires them will reap the rewards many times over what they pay them.”
