Linda Kissam - Travel Writer“I’ve worked with many professionals in the wine and travel industry, but I have not met one that understands their profession and their clients as well as Big Blend does.  Lisa Smith & Nancy Reid leave no detail unattended; from the affordable pricing, to the consistent contact, to the radio shows and editorial related to the destination, to the post follow up. Big Blend has created a positive, compelling and educational format that assists me in my efforts to market my clients and myself. I have received so much more than I anticipated – a sign that an expert team is in control.” – Linda Kissam: Publicist, Travel Writer, President of International Food, Wine & Travel Writers Association.
