PUBLICITY PIONEER, LEO PEARLSTEIN – AUTHOR, ADVENTURES IN PR
For the past six decades, publicity pioneer, Leo Pearlstein, has found a way to publicize every type of food imaginable with the help of a movie, TV, music, sports or political celebrity. How he ingeniously concocted his campaigns is revealed in his recently released book, titled "Adventures In PR," published by Create Space. This entertaining and educational book also includes over 50 nostalgic and rare photos of many of Hollywood's top stars, as well as famous politicians and sports figures. Pearlstein's candid tell-all of his adventures offers tips, tales and insight gained from publicizing a large variety of clients. From eggs and prunes, to turkeys, potatoes, chives, chickens and chips, the 95-year-old PR guru recalls the many trials and tribulations of getting hard-to-obtain media attention for his clients' products. Pearlstein's publicity campaigns not only helped sell food, but also the TV and movie projects of the celebrities with whom he worked. The book not only describes many successful PR campaigns, but also how Pearlstein and his staff were able to turn some crazy mishaps into successes. Readers can apply these valuable lessons to their own personal and business activities. Pearlstein always came up with creative ways to reach the media: whether he was frying 1,000 eggs in a 10-foot frying pan with Abbott & Costello; photographing sexy movie star, Jayne Mansfield, barbequing a turkey; having JFK pose with a live turkey prior to Thanksgiving; having Snoopy run for President to promote bread or working some food products into the "Rocky" movie.
'Adventures In PR,' Pearlstein's fourth book, is available online for $14.95 by visiting www.createspace.com/6029543, as well as www.amazon.com. For more information about 'Adventures In PR,' visit www.adventuresinpr.com.
When Leo Pearlstein founded Lee & Associates back in 1950, he had no idea he would one day be referred to as a "Legend of Food PR," as part of a feature in the Public Relations News publication, or be named a "PR superstar" in the Public Relations Quarterly magazine. TV Guide has even featured Leo and cited his ability and professionalism in getting his clients' products placed on television shows and in movies. Over the years, Leo, who personally supervised all phases of the agency's operations and members of his highly respected firm, have won numerous awards for outstanding accomplishments in food industry public relations, marketing and merchandising from many organizations. Pharmaceutical manufacturers, food conglomerates and major corporations have called on Leo's expertise in corporate communications. He pioneered in California agricultural commodity and generic promotions and has created and supervised successful programs for over 40 different food advisory boards, trade associations and co-ops, as well as state and federally-funded marketing groups. This includes industries such as almonds, apples, artichokes, asparagus, boysenberries, chives, corn, eggs, figs, grapefruit, papayas, peaches, pineapples, plums, prunes, seafood, tomatoes and turkeys. Some of the commodity groups he has handled range from the Danish Dairy Board and the English Cheese Association to the Mexican shrimp industry. Beverage clients he has worked with range from Pepsico and the milk industry to Suntory International (a billion-dollar conglomerate which produces over a hundred whiskey, wine and soft drink products). And because of his great knowledge of food, Leo was invited to participate in the first President's Council on Nutrition at the White House. In this book, Leo shares some of his favorite adventures in Public Relations.
