Welcome to Avant Garde PR
What We Do?
In our quest to develop public affairs and strategic communications solutions, we are unflinchingly analytical in our approach with unwavering keenness on every detail. All our public communication investment is deliberately channelled to activities that will unpack your business objects convincingly to your stakeholders; through employing design thinking to advance, promote, and protect your brand and reputation. Gauging your key business drivers is our starting point in designing any corporate communication strategy. The corporate communications support we offer will be geared towards supporting the key building blocks of your organisation and crystallising your business objectives.
Companies are today operating in an environment which is constantly evolving both in policy and linkages. Information is golden when it comes to intelligent decision making, this information can only be collected through a well thought out stakeholder engagement framework. Whether you’re going into new territory or launching a new product after an exhaustive R&D process, venturing forth without market data and deep sector analysis to inform your decisions or projections is akin to setting sail on rudderless ship. We use multi-method approaches that combine quantitative and qualitative data to deliver authoritative analysis for every market intelligence project. Be it research for a corporate strategy, acquisition or partnership, we leverage reputable sources and sector players to deliver impactful insights.
When you need to thaw relations and find common ground with your stakeholders, or be an instrumental cog in formulating policy, we are adept at stroking old social forces or sprinting at the pace of new digital tools in our quest to align minds to your interest. To steer an agenda, shape ideas, and influence social constructs, we will provide statistical and factual information to endear perspectives which could impact on your organisation's ability to operate successfully.
We assist businesses to communicate in a highly compelling and compliant manner that generates greater visibility, public interest, and shareholder value. We have a deep understanding of market expectations by use of in-depth empirical as well as qualitative analysis to identify issues decisive to a company’s optimum potential. Our experience and knowledge allow us to work with entrepreneurs and companies with a shared purpose in running sophisticated screening and targeting processes to secure potential investors and increase demand for our clients’ stock.
The staff of any organisation are the lead brand ambassadors who can best sell the organisation's mission and vision to its clientele and other relevant stakeholders. The Internal audience is crucial to success or failure of an organisation and their satisfaction will show in motivation or discontentment and how employees treat their customers We tailor and implement internal communications plans that are cognizant of preferred channels by staff with an objective of increasing employee engagement and behaviour change. Our overarching goal is to ensure all members are working collaboratively towards a common goal. This in long run helps develop a cohesive culture and empowers employees to make the right decisions in line with the organisation's goals.
In the battle for minds, every word you utter, every action and inaction, or what you imply communicates. When you are charged with a high stakes assignment, we will guide you through the subtleties that position your leadership in the minds that matter. We will evaluate your personality, competencies, and future plans in order to identify what traits you need to consciously suppress and what competences you need to amplify. Our leadership profiling is purposely structured to help harness the flow of influence and credibility for the realisation of your objectives.
We have two main offerings under our strategic communication practice:
Financial analysts are just as proficient with numbers as the media are with words, and while the analysts chance to trust the media to tell the story behind the numbers, often the media face challenges unpacking the numbers into a narrative for their audience. We work closely with both the financial analysts and business media to ensure that the numbers are accurately explained in the simplest way for the different audiences. Crisis and Reputation Management
Every business is a candidate for a crisis. In the unfortunate event that this happens, the ability to quickly roll out a calculative and decisive strategy is critical in protecting the business’ reputations. Our services under the crisis and reputation management practice are:
