DRPR...public relations for a sustainable world

Who we serve

DRPR has a deep background in energy, sustainability and building technology. We prefer to assist clients who are saving the world in their own fashion whether it is one garden, one solar panel, or one roll of insulation at a time. Working together we can make a difference.

Smart media relations

I like journalists. They're smart and they work hard. If you treat them with respect, read their work, and make an effort to understand their interests, you'll probably get a chance to tell your story. Treat them like just another name at the end of your press release assembly line, and don't be surprised if they aren't interested in what you're selling.

Blogging and the internet

Nothing beats telling your own story in a personal, friendly manner. As long as you're friendly and personable... A blog is a great way to relate to the world around you. Customers, partners, employees, and your mom will all appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts and ideas. It's a new way to communicate that can build trust and a reservoir of good will. Just don't take your readers for granted. We can get you started, help you manage your blogging time and keep your posts current, and help with your search engine optimization. We like WordPress, but TypePad and Blogger are good tools as well.

Project management

Life is a project. We have the two key moments of birth and death for milestones. Toss in a few smaller milestones like a marriage, some kids, and a couple of major career and household moves in the middle, and you've got yourself a nice project. Not too many people think of their life as a project, but sometimes the best or only way to manage something is with project tools. Fortunately DRPR is around to talk WBS, tasks, milestones, Gantt, resources, and critical path to your bank, your builder, or your project partners in the technical terms they'll understand. Keep in mind, of course, that our real project preference is not handling paperwork but talking to people and getting real world tasks completed.

Strategic thinking

Spinning your wheels isn't a good idea for anybody who wants to move quickly in a straight line. If you know where you are going and can apply all your energies to getting there, the trip can be remarkably short. Think strategically, plan tactically, and execute.
