Digital Public Relations Services

One of the tactical advantages Mike Bawden brings to the table when he’s consulting clients through Brand Central Station is his relationship with the PR-firm he co-owns, Bawden Lareau Public Relations.

Over the past decade, Mike and his business partner, Liz Merdian Lareau, have handled public realtions projects for clients around the country and now many of the affordable tools they developed are included in the suite of digital PR services offered by BCS.
