With Global Alliance

European tech PR and marketing agency With announced that it has created a global network of technology public relations agencies, the With Global Alliance. The With Global Alliance is launching with founding members Ideosphere (India), Bold (Southeast Asia), WEdge (China) and Affect (North America), spanning 4 continents and 18 countries.

The With Global Alliance is designed specifically to support technology businesses and the founding members all have deep expertise in the field. Experience across the Alliance includes AI, blockchain, cloud, cybersecurity, and spans sectors including Martech, Fintech, Cleantech and Edutech, among others.

Founding members are already working together on global accounts, providing global strategic counsel as well as expert in-country execution. Experts from across the With Global Alliance members are working together as unified, global account teams to offer clients consistent delivery and streamlined reporting as they scale their communications across markets. Members are active in the U.S., Canada, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, India, China, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand.

Members were identified after a detailed due diligence process and face-to-face meetings with shortlisted agencies in their markets. In addition to the tech focus and media expertise, key criteria were an integrated approach to marketing and communications, impeccable client references, long-term growth and profitability and leading-edge client servicing standards. All members are owner-managed agencies with hands-on senior teams and previous international agency experience.

“Being a European agency, we have always had a multi-market offer at our heart,” comments Debbie Zaman, CEO and founder of With. “But as an Alliance, we are now uniquely well placed to support technology businesses as they scale, whether they are looking to enter new markets or grow existing ones. Global business is changing exponentially, whether it is trade deals, M&A or Brexit related, and our aim is to redefine how agile global PR and marketing delivers on that.”

Elaborating on the Alliance, Minal Drozario, Co-Founder & Director, Ideosphere added, “ Collaboration is the future. Today’s digitally connected environment requires future-ready consultancies with the capabilities to deliver to the global end-customers of their clients. This association will enable Ideosphere to embrace best global practices, processes, insights and knowledge in delivering robust communication frameworks for our domestic and international clientele. Working along-side consulting teams from around the world will allow our teams to deliver global-ready strategies and execute with expert teams. We are in the business of solving enterprise-level challenges through communications, and we hope to work together with all the alliance partners to bring a gold-standard level of delivery and measured outcomes for our global client portfolio”

The With Global Alliance has already soft-launched with integrated global work for three different tech clients on projects including investor relations, events and traditional media relations. Joanna Derain, VP International at With, is working alongside With agency Founder and CEO Debbie Zaman on the delivery of global client work under the Alliance. Zaman becomes the Global President of the Alliance with an executive committee formed of the founders of Affect and Ideosphere, as well as Derain as Global Company Secretary.

Rebecca Rosborough, CMO for MiQ, a Sunday Times Tech Track rising star, said “The Alliance has delivered exactly what we needed: agile but expert comms in the UK, US, India and APAC. The combined team knows the media we need to know, creates killer content that suits local markets and is helping get us in front of both customers and partners. They bring us proactive ideas that work both globally and locally. We are very excited about what we can achieve in 2020.”

Due diligence is already underway with potential partner agencies in Eastern Europe, South America and the Middle East. Any tech agencies interested in joining the With Global Alliance should contact hello@withpr.com.

Would like to see more Indian PRs in Global PR forum: Farzana Baduel

Baduel, CEO of London-based Curzon PR, was honoured as 'Global PR Leader of the Year' at e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards

Farzana Baduel

To recognise women leaders’ relentless pursuit of excellence in public relations and corporate communication, exchange4media PR & Corp Comm launched the Women Achievers Awards in 2020. The third edition of the awards in 2022 felicitated the women leaders who have been shaping the industry through their incredible work.

The awards recognised women who not only achieved major milestones in their careers but also brought a dynamic change in the PR and corporate communications industry.

In this series, we feature some of the women leaders who were felicitated at the event. Today, we feature Farzana Baduel, CEO of London-based Curzon PR, who was bestowed with the “Global PR Leader of the Year” award in the third edition of the e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards.

Baduel is a passionate advocate of strategic communications, in particular its role in promoting international trade, cross-border investment and cultural diplomacy across the developed and developing world. A regular media commentator on PR and business issues, her views sought by leading broadcasters, newspapers and industry publications. Baduel’s experience and expertise have seen her appointed Resident Public Relations expert and Ambassador for the Oxford Foundry, the University of Oxford’s entrepreneurship centre, and formerly as Vice-Chair of Business Relations for the UK Conservative Party.

Excerpts from the interview:

Congratulations on your win at the e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards 2022. How do you feel?

I am thrilled at the award win and feel incredibly honoured to achieve the award, especially from my peers in the PR industry. I also am incredibly grateful for my team, both past and present, who have helped me in the journey to achieving the award. Without their hard work and talent, I would not be able to have the opportunity to learn from my colleagues; and I value their support.

What inspires you on your journey and endeavours?

Pursuing knowledge and honing my skills inspire me as I aspire to be the best PR that I can be.  I am constantly looking for ways to improve and PR is a dynamic industry that continues to evolve and bring new learning opportunities.

In what ways have you witnessed the PR and corporate communications industry change and evolve over the years? What global practices would you see implemented in India?

Over a decade ago, media relations was a core service within PR firms and now, demand for this traditional PR service has dramatically dwindled as content has grown into a dominant demand from clients. I have also witnessed the rise of our industry PR, which was previously seen as lower down the pecking order from brand and marketing. However, due to the rise of stakeholder capitalism, we are increasingly enjoying an elevation to the CEO's agenda, as the new way of doing business means looking after all stakeholders and not just customers. 

Data has revolutionised our approach to measurement and evaluation alongside digital channels, allowing PRs to demonstrate value more than ever. India is set to overtake China next year in terms of population. And as its growth trajectory increases with its political and economic power, I would like to see India-based PRs more visible in the 'Global PR' forums as they represent a significant part of the world population. Moreover, Global PR summits and reports cannot be seen credibly as global if they do not include the Indian perspective.  

Tell us about your most valuable learning from the industry. Where do you foresee the PR and communications industry in the coming days?

The most valuable learning from the industry has been to be aware of the mental health impact of working in the industry. Short timelines and managing multiple variables, some of which are beyond our control, can lead to stress. Recent surveys have spotlighted the PR industry as one of the most stressful industries to work in. Therefore, raising awareness of this vulnerability is key. Creating an environment that is conducive to building resilience is important, whether it is by building trust in teams or embedding well-being measures in your daily schedule.

AI is increasingly disrupting our industry as we already have tools like Grammarly, which has evolved from basic spelling and grammar checks to sentiment analysis and tone detection. Some articles and blogs are already written by AI and their sophistication is growing. Nascent deep-tech solutions are making inroads into our industry, where some tasks will be increasingly automated and, as practitioners, we will have to accept that change is the norm. Image generation powered by AI is becoming ubiquitous and its application can be extended to other formats. Crisis communications will continue to grow due to the acceleration of technology coupled with multi-power bases growing on the geopolitical landscape. Internal communications will also rise in importance as organisations grapple with hybrid and remote teams and use internal communications as a culture-building tool.  

What would be your message to the future generation of professionals?

Build your resilience and accept change as a constant. Follow your curiosity.

‘One of the most effective ways of communication is the method of digital storytelling’

Dr Ashima Singh, Assistant Professor, Amity School of Communication, was awarded the ‘Educator of the Year’ award at the e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards

e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards

To recognise women leaders’ relentless pursuit of excellence in public relations and corporate communication, exchange4media PR & Corp Comm launched the Women Achievers Awards in 2020. The third edition of the awards in 2022 felicitated the women leaders who have been shaping the industry through their incredible works.

The awards recognised women who not only achieved major milestones in their careers but also brought a dynamic change in the PR and corporate communications industry.

In this series, we feature some of the women leaders who were felicitated at the event. Today, we feature Dr Ashima Singh, Assistant Professor, Amity School of Communication. She was bestowed with the “Educator of the Year” award in the third edition of the e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards.

Excerpts:

Congratulations on your win at the e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards 2022. How do you feel? 

I would firstly like to thank the e4m team for conferring upon the award. It has been a long journey in this field of learning and teaching and every moment of that has been inspiring and exciting. This award has come as an inspiration to me as it reminds me to work with more commitment and dedication in the coming years.

What inspires you on your journey and endeavours?

My biggest source of inspiration is my students. Over the course of my professional career in academia, I have met several people who have become my mentors and they have always challenged me to push myself harder. As a teacher, my students have always been there for me and I have also learnt a lot from them. Apart from this, my passion for learning has kept me driven.

In what ways have you witnessed the PR and corporate communications industry change and evolve over the years? What global practices would you see implemented in India?

The PR industry has now become largely digitised. Tools of the digital media play a major role in disseminating information and fostering relationships. The new age is all about creating interactive content in order to engage people. One of the most effective ways of communication that we are witnessing right now is the method of digital storytelling.

Platforms like Substack have gained popularity at a global level in the world of communications. However, I feel that the Indian industry has not been able to make utilisation of such platforms yet. I would like to see the upcoming team of professionals make proper use of all these tools in an effective manner. 

Tell us about your most valuable learning from the industry. Where do you foresee the PR and comms industry in the coming days?

One thing that I have learnt from the industry is that one should never stop asking questions. The communications industry is an evolving one, you will spot changes every now and then, so one must ensure that they keep enquiring about and learning whatever’s new on the plate. Another thing that is key to success in the industry is the aspect of networking. Your antenna should always be active as the more contacts you make the better you get at work.

In the coming days of strong digital storytelling, PR professionals will have to up their game in regard to making use of social media. Everyone is there right now, from journalists to businesses, mastering the social media game can prove to be very helpful for PR professionals to reach their target audience. They should also keep in mind the growing strictness regarding the ethical margins in the corporate communications and PR industry.

What would be your message to the future generation of professionals?

I would keep saying that going digital is the key to keep oneself at par with the ongoing work culture. Learning the latest technology and digital skills and the art of digital storytelling will be my message to the future professionals of the communications industry.

PR professionals are now becoming strategic advisors for organisations: Tatevik Simonyan

Simonyan, co-founder and director of communications and international relations, SPRING PR, was honoured as 'Global PR Leader of the Year' at e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards

Today, we feature co-founder and director – communications and international relations, SPRING PR, Tatevik Simonyan was bestowed with the “Global PR Leader of the Year” award in the third edition of the e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards.

Excerpts from the interview:

Congratulations on your win at the e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards 2022. How do you feel?

It is a great honour for me to receive this high-level recognition and to be included in this list of 'e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Award' with so many strong female leaders in the PR and communications field worldwide. Women Achievers Award belongs not only to me but to our entire team. At SPRING PR Company, we give self-realisation opportunities for everyone with bright ideas, collaborative spirit and devotion to the shared mission.

Apart from being a business, we also represent a team of like-minded people contributing to their country's development. And we are proud that thanks to our efforts, Armenia has taken its role and proper place in the international PR community as a player with competitive and creative campaigns and its influence in global communications. 

What inspires you on your journey and endeavours?

The feeling of creating common good, which is applicable to the whole industry. It is really inspiring when you produce value in your country and it has a chance to become mankind’s property and be appreciated by the professionals who are authorities for you and for the PR community. And what I value the most is the international network of PR professionals who are supportive and collaborative, which is the key to success. PR is my passion, inspiration, source of energy and endless love.

In what ways have you witnessed the PR and corporate communications industry change and evolve over the years? 

As I mentioned in my keynote address at the e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Summit, the PR and communication industry is facing drastic changes in Armenia and the world. We, as PR practitioners, are at the boundaries of a “turning point” for the profession. The perception of our role is hugely changed - we are no more a “service provider” or a consultant but a “decision maker” and a core, equal partner for the client.

Public relations are no longer entirely about communications but reputation building. PR professionals are becoming strategic advisors for partner organisations to achieve their missions. And in my way of thinking, it is a positive transformation of the perception of our profession. Most global entities give high importance to applying the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals as a core approach for socially-responsible businesses as the world faces multicrises in the form of a global outbreak, wars in different countries, global warming, etc. 

And one thing that I would like to emphasise is that even though traditional media continues to play a vital role in the dissemination of information, it is increasingly being influenced by online content and interactions.  Social media platforms took the lion's share of reaching the audience and in the era of rising fake news, PR professionals have a responsibility to help their audiences to figure out what is fake news and what is reliable information.

Tell us about your most valuable learning from the industry. Where do you foresee the PR and comms industry in the coming days?

Technological advancements penetrate various spheres of human activity so, PR is no exception. PR professionals need to be flexible and adapt to new requirements and learn new skills regarding digital and online tools. Over the next years, we should be more customer-focused with more multi-channels and media relations. Trust should improve through the simple process of storytelling as a way of reaching our audience. 

What would be your message to the future generation of professionals?

Professionals who don't adapt to new circumstances will be left behind. So, I think we need constantly follow global trends, be aware of the successes of our foreign partners, be ready for experience exchange, and adopt a practice of partnership and mutual support. It will help our global community to pave a path for the further advancement of the industry.

PR and comms industry will continue to thrive in this new digital era: Hrishika Basappa

Basappa, Director – Brand and Communications, WeWork India was honoured with the 'Innovative Leader of The Year” award in the third edition of e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards

Basappa

To recognise women leaders’ relentless pursuit of excellence in public relations and corporate communication, exchange4media PR & Corp Comm launched the Women Achievers Awards in 2020. The third edition of the awards in 2022 felicitated the women leaders who have been shaping the industry through their incredible work. The awards recognised women who not only achieved major milestones in their careers but also brought a dynamic change in the PR and corporate communications industry.

In this series, we feature some of the women leaders who were felicitated at the event. Today, we speak to Hrishika Basappa, Director – Brand and Communications, WeWork India. She was honoured in the category ‘Innovative Leader of The Year’.

Congratulations on your win at the e4m PR & Corp Comm Women Achievers Awards 2022. How do you feel?

I feel honoured to receive this award as an acknowledgement of my role at WeWork India. I have always aimed to create innovative and thoughtful strategies and campaigns and being awarded for the same is a gratifying experience. I would like to extend my gratitude to my team for their hard work and constant support, as well as my friends and family who have contributed significantly to my achievements. I would also like to extend my appreciation towards the exchange4Media team for recognising and showcasing my achievements at WeWork India alongside some of the distinguished names in the corporate communications industry.

What inspires you on your journey and endeavours?

Leading a team of hardworking professionals and working with them day in, and day out has taught me a lot. Initially, I believed that I am capable of working independently until I realised the importance of accomplishing the desired targets through teamwork. My team keeps me on my toes and constantly inspires me to do great work. Brainstorming with my team helps me perceive their ideas, thoughts and opinions in a better manner, and further widens my horizons. This not only encourages me to be better but also helps me deal with their varying personalities and learn about their skill sets.

In what ways have you witnessed the PR and corporate communications industry change and evolve over the years? What global practices would you see implemented in India?

The field of communications, as an industry, is very dynamic and it keeps evolving with changing needs of the consumers and growth in technology. The biggest change happened during the pandemic when we went completely digital, leading to new ideas and innovations that ensured the growth of PR. For example, at WeWork India, we conducted engaging online events, webinars, digital roundtables, and digital campaigns along with a focus on traditional PR. There was a tremendous amount of creativity that was required to continue with PR activities during the pandemic.

Instead of spending time on laborious processes like creating spreadsheets, global corporate communications teams today focus on specific numbers to demonstrate actions, results, and measurable business impact on the bottom line. With the use of modern technology, PR specialists can now organise, analyse, and collect information to help shape campaign tactics. This wave of innovation contributes to the availability of analytical tools for quantifying and drawing conclusions from activities and information. It signifies tremendous development in the field of MarTech with the aim of simplifying the process of making ultra-personalised effective campaigns.

Tell us about your most valuable learning from the industry. Where do you foresee the PR and comms industry in the coming days?

My journey has been one of great learning and growth. I have had the opportunity to drive impactful campaigns, and contribute towards gaining impactful, positive brand visibility. Through the course of my career, I have developed an in-depth understanding of the industry at large - the most valuable one being the importance of being constantly aware of any developments in the industry and understanding the consumer pulse point. These play a crucial role in enhancing the overall consumer experience, thereby resulting in innovative engagement strategies and impactful storytelling.

The PR and comms industry will continue to thrive in this new digital era with newer avenues for storytelling and better technology. I believe that there will be an increase in diversification of outreach with the advent of new-age platforms such as podcasts, newsletters, influencer collaborations, and more. Owned media will become more critical for brands to build their digital presence and visibility with an increase in direct interaction with consumers.

What would be your message to the future generation of professionals?

As part of the next generation of leaders in this field, you have a unique opportunity to create new pathways to the future. Keep your mind open to new opportunities and try to learn one new thing each day. Set realistic goals and work towards achieving them each day because consistency is the key to becoming better, and push yourself to aim bigger.
