Brand Strategy, Public Relations and Reputation
Our world is undergoing rapid change. Supporting a brand in the field of communication without a clear strategic direction equals navigating a ship without a compass. Though unproblematic during perfect conditions, it bears fatal consequences in a storm. A couple of years ago, Social Media used to be a discipline for experts, whereas today, it is at the core of public relations. In this context, clients expect from consultants increasingly sound answers to all questions and not single solutions.
Maintaining Long-Term Relationships
We focus on long-term partnerships. What started off as an ideal, has turned out to be one of the key components of our success. Effective communications and brand development takes time.
Our almost decade-long, still flourishing partnerships with companies such as Harley-Davidson® Switzerland and Hirslanden are a testament to this fact.
Transparency and Fairness as a Prerequisite
In the past decade, clients have continuously developed their own know-how in all areas related to communications. They can, therefore, evaluate the value of services better than ever and are unwilling to work with inexperienced or inadequately trained consultants. Fees are closely scrutinised, and exaggerated agency overheads are rightly criticised. That is why we charge our services at transparent and fair rates.
Integrity, intelligence and energy – if you bring these qualities with you then you might be a great fit for us! In order to provide outstanding services for our clients, we are looking for people who constantly question the status quo, recognise and realise potential for improvement and are able to push beyond the obvious.
Work with us
Our mandates in the areas of public relations and brand management require diverse areas of expertise and skills. Our team members are an amalgam of our strength and bring varied backgrounds with them: marketing, communications, history, sociology, political science, economics, and business administration are all represented. Our team members take part in our internal development program, in which we place great emphasis on continuous training and a structured career path.
We strive to strengthen our team with the best talent and with a long-term view. If you are interested in an open exchange, please contact:
