Our associates are accountable for each aspect of every client’s project they undertake, start-up through completion.
They develop successful programs then execute and evaluate them. They meet clients at initial briefings, present recommendations and serve as points of contact for day-to-day counsel. They work with the media, plan special events, research and write materials.
While we hire professionals with varied experiences and talents, each demonstrates proficiency in the basic skills of public relations – persuasive writing, creative problem-solving and solid news judgment. From this talent base, we form agency service teams for each program, based in every case on client needs and objectives.
