What people are saying...

"Elevate My Brand has served as a catalyst in the growth of my accounting firm over the past several years. And when it was time to re-brand due to a partnership split, EMB seamlessly transitioned my firm to its new brand. Laurel Mintz has built so much more than a branding firm with EMB…She is my executive coach, event planner, creative thinker and branding expert all rolled into one. EMB is an integral part of my team and I highly recommend making them a part of yours."

Adam Jones
CEO, Jones & Associates

"I wanted to thank you all for the incredible event! We were blown away by it all. The decor, entertainment, food and service. It was all so wonderful and we have heard from everyone that this was a really special and unique event. Thank you and your whole team for your work, diligence, and the quality of the production. Yay team!"

Sabrina Merage
Principal, Echo Capital Group

"Elevate My Brand did more than manifest their name into reality for me, they created a family in which I felt comfortable to grow as an entrepreneur, and also share the labor of conceiving my idea into reality. My company, Standing Light, is the deepest expression of myself, it came to life through my personal trials and errors, so it went beyond just an idea, it was something deeply personal, like my own child. EMB - Laurel and her incredible team - helped me raise this child into a full fledged expression that is on its way to function by its own, and where I feel safe to let it spread its wings."

Leyla Salvadé
Founder & CEO, Standing Light

"A year ago we were a small company, with a better mouse trap, competing against giants.  EMB helped us build the brand we needed to compete at the top levels.  With their help we’ve doubled in size and are poised to double again." 

Rob Kent
CEO, O2 Concepts

"Thank you for helping us plan our 50th Anniversary gala!  You were not only extremely helpful during the pre-planning stages, but also incredible with on-site coordination.  Your attention to every detail was top notch.  By all accounts, it was a highly successful event and we couldn’t have done it without you!" 

Cindy Burton
President/CEO, PathPoint

“We engaged Laurel Mintz and Elevate My Brand to help launch our new fundraiser in Los Angeles in August 2015.  In short order Laurel just 'got us;' it felt like we had been working together for years.  She always came through, over-delivered, was thoroughly professional, advocated for us with partners or vendors if ever needed and was just plain fun to work with. I couldn’t recommend her or her company more.”  
Matt Feldman
Senior Director of Marketing

"It is with great pleasure, and a debt of gratitude, that I recommend Laurel Mintz and her team at Elevate My Brand. When Laurel and her team signed on to my vision to create a massive, county wide innovation celebration, no one knew that it would grow to encompass 160 events over 22 days. EMB's excellence and dedication were instrumental in creating the juggernaut that is Innovate.LA. Through their digital marketing strategy and leadership we were able to achieve a staggering 43K hashtags used and 120 million total impressions for #LAIW2015.”

"From the first press kit to the launch of our first location to all the rest, I’d like to thank the Elevate My Brand team for all their hard work and passion for the project as they helped us build our own brand from scratch. It was such a pleasure to work with their bright and thoughtful team, and I’d highly recommend them to anyone else looking to "elevate" their brand."
