By any measure, turning the “big 3-0” is a milestone in our culture. Whether as a person or a business, it’s a time for reflection. In 2020, that seems even more relevant. Many of us are spending more time at home than we have in decades. Our thoughts run the gamut from what new color to paint the walls (my choice was SW 6435 Gratifying Green) to how to stay active without our regularly organized activities.
As professionals, we’ve adapted to the largest work-from-home experiment ever conducted, and by all accounts, we did it with a great deal of aplomb. The global pandemic, economic downturn, calls for racial justice and equity, and a contentious presidential election have required many unexpected pivots for ourselves and our clients. As a leader in the agency, I can’t help but reflect that right now is one of the most interesting eras to be in the PR profession. At the same time, I believe that so much of the strategy and implementation of today’s work still reflects what the industry has been doing right for the past three decades.
Three decades later, we continue to be thankful for the people who built our agency in the past, the people who continue to keep us relentlessly growing, and mostly our amazing clients. Thirty years of smart strategy, learning and trying new things have helped us go into the challenges of 2020 from a position of strength, and we continue to have a driving spirit of continued relevance and results.
To give our anniversary the presence it deserves, we developed digital and social content each day for 30 days in a row dedicated to celebrating our people, our work and our creativity.
