What defines a good PR consultant?
Good PR consultants should be analytical, empathetic and enjoy working with clients from a wide range of industries. Developing communication solutions always involves a creative process. We are not lone warriors, but passionate team players. Writing press releases is a thing of the past. We develop PR strategies from well-founded analyses, create content that is precisely tailored to the needs and wishes of the stakeholders and communicated in the right channels. PR consulting is an on-going endeavour, because most problems only arise from a lack of communication.
