For this #ThrowbackThursday, we’re celebrating a KBD favorite, Inez Yeargan Kaiser (April 22, 1918 – July 31, 2016), the first Black Woman to own a PR firm. Kaiser paved the way for Black and Woman-owned businesses like The KBD Group, and we aim to honor her legacy of relationship building and storytelling in the work we do every day.

In celebration of the holidays, we typically send our clients baked goods and treats from small, locally-owned businesses as a way to show our appreciation. This year, due to COVID-19, we thought these gorgeous poinsettias from Norfolk Wholesale Floral would be the safest gifts to share and enjoy! As you make the dash for last minute gifts, be sure to support local businesses in the 757! #ClientAppreciation #HappyHolidays #PublicRelations

Today we Pitched...Then Poured — just like the glass reads!

Holiday parties certainly look a bit different this year, but nonetheless we are still toasting to another great year of work with our fabulous team and phenomenal clients — despite a pandemic! Happy Holidays!

Oh...and we’re just a bunch of PR pros who happen to double as amateur sommeliers. That said, we definitely recommend this red blend by @mcbridesisters! Always seeking an opportunity to support other small, women and minority owned businesses! Cheers!!! 🍷🎄

Ruth Jones Nichols, President & CEO of the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore, and Edith White, CEO of Hampton Roads Community Action Program have demonstrated a fierce commitment to their respective organizations and have managed to seamlessly mobilize their teams to support our most vulnerable neighbors. We celebrate the efforts of these incredible women...who just happen to be our clients;) We also want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the hard work of women across the globe fighting this pandemic, both on the front lines and behind the scenes. #WHM was a bit overshadowed this year, but nonetheless, these women are still making history.
