Julie Silver Talenfeld
JULIE SILVER TALENFELD, Boardroom Communications' founder and president, enjoys a legacy of business innovation, client service and community involvement. She was most recently honored as one of the 2013 Influential Business Women by the South Florida Business Journal for her impact and leadership in the community and the business world.
Julie’s history is more of a trajectory. She began as an intern on CNN's national assignment desk in Washington, D.C. and as a writer and associate producer for its award-winning show, Crossfire. Even at the age of 22, she was a visionary – she founded and produced the Florida Business Report, the first statewide business radio show, eventually syndicated on 30 stations. Julie later left to direct public relations for J.T. Moran Financial, a 20-office, $100 million New York investment banking firm.
By 25, Julie had launched Boardroom Communications to provide unparalleled media coverage to a wide array of discerning clients in the luxury real estate and retail, legal, banking, corporate and non-profit sectors. Today, the firm is one of Florida's leading PR agencies procuring major media results nationally and internationally, and continuously recognized by colleagues, media and competitors.
The list of awards that Julie’s company has won is due in large part to her leadership. It is listed as a Top 25 Women-Owned Business and was named to the SFBJ’s Top 25 Corporate Giving list. In 2011 and 2012, Boardroom Communications was awarded a Silver Addy from the Advertising Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale for campaigns for the Jewish Federation. In 2011, Julie received the University of Florida's Alumni of Distinction Award as well as the Advocacy Award from Legal Aid.
Boardroom Communications provides pro bono PR services to Florida's Children First, the state's most influential child advocacy organization and supports numerous non-profits through its board membership and public relations efforts. Julie and Boardroom were honored with the Jewish Adoption & Foster Care Options (JAFCO) Jacobs Ladder Award for its dedication to child advocacy.
Julie serves on the boards of Florida's Children First and has served on the gala committee for the South Florida Multiple Sclerosis Society's largest annual fundraiser. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation named Julie and her husband, child advocacy attorney Howard Talenfeld, one of its 2008 South Florida's Finest Couples for their charitable involvement and success in the business community. Julie and Howard were honored as "Community Champions" by the Deliver the Dream organization in 2013. The Talenfeld family is also the annual sponsor of the JAFCO Children's Village Chanukah Party, and Julie is a JAFCO Godparent.
A South Florida native, Julie attended Boston University and graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Journalism.
