Phuketpublicrelations public relations philosophy is simple: it's about smoothing the path between the inevitable "peaks" and "troughs" in Phuket's public relations market. It's about successfully planning and implementing PR strategies to scale the "peaks" [events] and filling in the"troughs" [between events] with targeted, creative, timely and accurate public relations..
Phuket is "events" island. Therefore strategic public relations planning on Phuket demands a PR consultant with vision, creative PR solutions and straightforward, honest advice. Phuketpublicrelations brings all of these qualities - and professional, ethical standards born of experience - to your table.
Phuketpublicrelations also specializes in environmental public relations - including specialist expertise in corporate social responsibility [CSR] - and is a significant contributor to the wider Phuket community through pro-bono, charitable public relations. Phuketpublicrelations voluntarily assists several Phuket organizations, including the Soi Dog Foundation and Phuket International Women's Club.
