Professionals in the field of higher education who have known Frank Dobisky and the work of his firm through the years offer comments on the firm's performance.
"During my career, I dealt with public relations representatives on many occasions. Frank Dobisky stood out among them as one of the most professional and knowledgeable. He knew his client, knew the kind of stories our publication was interested in, our deadlines, and the way that ideas were turned into the published product. Most importantly, I found him to be a man of integrity."

"Frank worked with me at the University of Florida for 11 years, until 2001. We found him easy to work with, down to earth and very responsive. It was as if we had another staff member; he was just in another location. He did a tremendous job for us and we substantially increased our national media coverage
"Because of our previous relationship, I engaged Frank and his firm when I came to the University of Central Florida in Orlando. We want to enhance the national coverage of UCF, which is Florida's fastest-growing university with more than 42,000 students. He is now a vital part of our team at UCF, as we seek to build a national media presence. Frank is helping to position us among the nation's top universities -- as a leader in scientific research, education reform and hospitality management."

"You provided West Virginia Wesleyan College superb strategic communications counsel in regard to our information technology plan and its various elements, including our universal access laptop program and on-line application for admission. Importantly, you provided extensive direct contact with key media leaders; with the access you provided to these contacts, we were able to tell our story through national print media. As a result, our story appeared in The Chronicle of Higher Education, USA Today and other outlets.
"In all of this, you were highly professional and patient! We at Wesleyan are immensely grateful for your guidance and assistance."

"As a veteran news reporter, Frank brings to the field of media placement a deep understanding of how reporters think and he knows what editors want. He uses their language, he perfects the timing, and he understands the trends. He succeeds because he builds strong relationships with the people who call the shots -- and nothing in public relations is more important than relationships. Frank knows how to do it."
