We are Lesensky.cz
We are an agency with a professional team. We are a team of people who like working and having fun together.
The Story of Lesensky.cz
In 2009 Petr Lesenský decided that he wanted his own PR company. And that’s how Lesensky.cz came to be. Its current success is based on professional relations with the media and the skilful use of information. Polished texts and skilful negotiations with the media eventually led to real results – with IKEA as the first major client, and later with Invia or E.ON. As the number of clients grew, so did our product portfolio. Today Lesensky.cz specialises in PR, strategic marketing and website design, with more than 300 completed projects.
We are Lesensky.cz. Our success did not come with large clients and jobs. It came with personalities, their ideas and enthusiasm. We are an agency with team spirit. Our success on the market is the result of hard work and talented people. We have PR folks, marketing people, graphic designers and website creators - all under one roof. We work on campaigns together; drawing on the experience of our specialists and our open workflow. Our work works because we are colleagues, friends and mates. Our strategies work because we talk, write and plan together. Our agency works because we've been on the same team since 2009.
