Obsidian is the dark natural glass that forms when molten lava meets water and is rapidly cooled. This is what strategic public relations can do for your company — it tempers fires and gives you a solid, impenetrable foundation in an ever-fluid business environment. Known as The Great Stabilizer, Obsidian the mineral is widely regarded for its mystical power of insight. And so is Obsidian the firm. Based in Memphis, Tennessee, Obsidian is known as the go-to firm for companies and not-for-profit organizations alike.
For far too long, public relations has been the invisible and mysterious cousin to advertising and marketing. But, it’s really easy when you think about it. When an organization connects to the people it cares about, that’s PR. When your story is told (in whatever lovely and purposeful fashion), that’s PR. Pure and simple.Learn more about us

This annual conference challenges the greatest minds in our region to consider the economic nuances that rural communities, including those in our own backyard, face. Whitney and Jenna supported the planning team and attended the conference as logistics support. The event was deemed an enormous success!Want similar results?

ServiceMaster by Stratos is one of Obsidian’s most tenured clients. We work diligently to support growth and employee satisfaction for this ServiceMaster franchise. As Stacy, the company’s CEO, said, “Obsidian has not only provided the education necessary for ServiceMaster by Stratos to understand the way to go to market, but they have also helped us refine the message and create the channels to distribute the message.”
We hate to see interns go, and that’s especially true when they’ve been with us for so long! Two-time intern Jenna has embarked on her career path outside of Obsidian, but she learned so much from her time with our team! She shares what she gained as an OPR intern here.
It’s no secret. Anyone who knows us knows we’re serious about PR. But we have a lot of fun doing it. We are storytellers. We are planners. We are doers. We are your brand’s best friend.
