NEW YORK – December 15, 2016 – Worldcom Public Relations Group, the leading global partnership of public relations firms, recently completed regional conferences where it welcomed new partners Radius Kommunikations (Denmark), Interamericana de Comunicación (Costa Rica – San Jose), Sachs Media Group (Florida – Tallahassee) and Maverick (Jakarta – Indonesia). The annual regional meetings occurred in Hong Kong (Asia Pacific), Sofia, Bulgaria (Europe Middle East Asia – EMEA) and Santa Fe, New Mexico (Americas).
“We are extremely pleased to welcome these terrific firms to the Worldcom partnership because they help bolster our Asia Pacific footprint and round out our strong partnership in Latin America, the U.S. and EMEA,” said Todd Lynch, Managing Director, Worldcom Public Relations Group. “We’re fortunate to welcome partners who not only help maximize our geographic presence, but bring expertise and skills that reflect our industry today and where it’s headed in the coming years. These qualities allow all our partners to serve both existing and future client needs, as well as create collaborative opportunities to seek and serve the communications needs of companies globally.”
The three regional conferences carried a similar theme of exploring the many facets of the new business arc, including prospecting, pitching, and onboarding. As is the case with all Worldcom meetings, the sessions focused on partner collaboration, sharing of best practices and the highest standards of agency management. In addition, several partners also completed Worldcom’s peer review, a peer-to-peer standards assessment that ensures agencies are performing to the highest industry standards while also exchanging best practices among fellow partners. This year there was also a special emphasis placed on presentations and panels that discussed myriad key industry topics and trends. These types of discussions enable Worldcom partners to provide clients and prospects with high level cooperative PR solutions.
“The attendance, participation and collaboration illustrate why this is a special partnership,” said Scott Chaikin, Chair of Dix & Eaton and Worldcom’s Global Chair. “Worldcom’s average partner tenure is 13-plus years. The trust, respect and familiarity among our partners is why we are able to share and collaborate to effectively lift each other’s practices up, extend excellent service to our clients and partner on the pursuit of regional and global new business opportunities against the world’s best.”
