Engage, Connect and Effect Change

“The two words ‘information’ and ‘communication’ are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through.”

– Sydney J. Harris

STRATEGIC COMMUNICATION CAMPAIGNS

We predominantly work in areas of conflict, post conflict and development, and specialize in advertising, public information and social change campaigns – using formal and informal media, backed by innovative research, to effect or deflect change across political, social and cultural boundaries. We believe that thoughtful communication, presented correctly, not only alters the way people perceive their world, but can also stimulate that world to change.

We have developed mass media global advertising campaigns for private companies and corporations, and mass media public information and influence campaigns in support of security, governance, elections and counter-terrorism efforts, in the Middle East, Central Asia, Africa and elsewhere.

The type of media we use depends on the location and audience(s) and ranges from high-end advertising, through to social media, news and documentary (both radio and television), entertainment programs, print, digital, SMS, IVR, telephony, and the traditional power of word of mouth. We utilize many forms and methodologies of research, from formal and overt market research, to informal citizen information networks and data mining and mapping through our CAST system. We use this research to determine and understand our target audiences, to sample countrywide ‘atmospherics’, drive strategy, test product and measure effect.

STRATEGIC COMMUNICATION CONSULTING

We devise effective communication strategies with our clients and then use media placement and a full range of other public relations tools to disseminate and deploy. We evaluate our strategic effects using CAST, focus groups, campaign tracking surveys, market research and analysis of monitored media across entire countries and regions. We also collate a powerful ‘eyes on the ground’ snap shot of the environments we work in over various timescales – a valuable briefing tool for clients and their management. More importantly, we believe that full business integration is a key component of success and we conduct a full analysis of your business or organization to ensure it’s fundamentally aligned internally with your public image and vice versa and if they’re not, we help develop and implement the necessary changes to help you achieve your goals.

The assessment gives us the foundation to improve you or your organizations access to existing and emerging markets, make a name for itself, change perceptions and win new business. It will also establish the core identity that will guide and protect the corporation for many years to come, improve its human resources, and create the systems, skills and processes that will let it continue or begin to function as a cohesive unit. This also gives your organization the ‘feel’ it desires, and the ability to act energetically and proactively. Planning and codifying internal communication procedures as soon as possible will also help ensure an organization’s employees are informed, happy, able to meet the challenges of the outside world and ultimately be more productive – creating genuine and organic external communications.
