Mission and philosophy

Our mission is to create clear, creative, and effective messages that are right for the target audience and aligned to our customers’ strategic objectives.

The philosophy of APR is based on the premise that the image of a company must be aligned to its core business. We are convinced that an in-depth understanding of the objectives, values, and marketing strategy will enable us to tell their story in the best possible way. This approach puts us in the right place to recommend and implement strategic communications plans.

We start with understanding what you do. We get to know you and perform internal analysis of your organisational structure, mission, resources, tradition, and your history. We also do an external analysis; we work with you to answer questions about outside factors that affect your business. Based on that analysis, we develop a PR strategy which supports your goal of reaching and maintaining the target position in the marketplace. The strategy we propose is robust enough to stand up against the challenges of media relations, conflict management, or building an entire network of contacts from scratch.

Our guiding business principles are honesty, transparency, responsibility, and friendliness.

Our values

The reputation of our clients is of the utmost importance to APR. A strong and sustainable market position is among a company’s most valuable assets. We offer the tools to manage our customers’ reputation in any situation.

Our guiding business principles are honesty, transparency, responsibility, and friendliness. We surround ourselves with people who share the same values.
