European tech PR & marketing agency With launches With Global Alliance
The With Global Alliance is a global network of technology public relations agencies designed specifically to support technology businesses
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.For more updates, be socially connected with us on
