Client and Partner Testimonials


Autographs and souvenirs from our travels

Nancy Mayes is one of those unique project managers who makes me feel that I don’t have to check my creativity at the door in order to solve the client’s communication problems. I can’t tell you how important that is to me as a photographer. Equally important, Nancy is also wonderfully good at wrangling project logistics making her a pleasure to work with. Her attention to detail is extraordinary.

We hired Mayes Communications to help us develop our 2010, 2011 and 2012 Community Benefit Annual Reports. We had to balance multiple needs, desires and visions to tell fairly complex stories of our investments in community health. Nancy, with her superb arsenal of partners — designers, photographers, etc. — helped us hit a home run with these publications! Years 2010 and 2011, particularly, were exceptional — winning awards from the D.C. and Maryland chapters of Public Relations Society of America. Kaiser Permanente continues to enjoy a great working relationship with Mayes Communications.

I’m amazed at the breadth of expert-level services that Mayes Communications offers. On our many projects together, Nancy has been a writer, editor, photo director, event planner, project manager, creative director, pr expert, production manager, client contact, researcher, and more — all with expert-level quality and attention to detail. No matter her role, Nancy operates with control, mastery and good humor. Nancy is able to manage the big picture — and navigate project details and minutiae — all with enviable finesse. MayesComm is a truly versatile professional group. I’m glad to have contributed to a few of the informed, multi-level successes that Nancy and her team have enabled.

Working with Nancy is simply delightful. We have worked on five projects together over the last couple of years. She turned our content into something that captured the spirit and essence of our training programs. She masterfully developed newsletters whose message sprang off the page. Every project with Nancy and her team was effortless. We felt like we were always in the expert hands of a writing genius and project management master. I look forward to our next project together.

Mayes Communication has given us the creative edge to raise and maintain employee awareness about very technical issues that are often difficult to communicate. Nancy is an expert at targeting communications to the right audience, at the right time, and in the right format to assure that the message gets delivered… and remembered.
