Strategic Communications – driving client success
Business growth and success are underpinned by quality strategic communications – or ‘strat comms’. Strat comms a vital tool for businesses to manage their relationships with their key audiences because the quality of these relationships is what influences whether those audiences will do business with you.
Strategic Communication has been described as “a process that organisations use to intentionally manage the relationships between them and their key publics” (CEO World). Oxford Bibliographies says ‘strat comms’ describes disciplines “including public relations, management communication, and advertising...for engaging in purposeful communication.”
For our clients, it means managing and enhancing reputation to secure their advantage through influencing the right audiences.
