Our Vision is to empower Greek businesses through modern tools that are heavily used by successful companies to inform individuals in key decision-making positions on topics influencing the entire global landscape.
We achieve this is by enhancing the productivity, reputation and the decision-making capabilities of senior management positions through time-saving briefs, sector-specific information and intelligence.
The secret formula to our success is a combination of technology, highly-specialised policy expertise and compelling storytelling. One side of the coin is policy and knowledge monitoring, the only such tool in South-East Europe, which involves sifting through thousands of information sources on a daily basis to distill the most relevant national, European and global discussions that will influence your sector in the short, medium and long term.
The other fundamental side of our approach is leveraging the incredible power of storytelling. People crave stories. They need and want them. A story can change moods, beliefs and connect people. With the proper narrative, supported by strong information and intelligence injection, we bring your story to life with a new and creative way. We ingrain your story into your brand and your company’s DNA, from your public affairs strategy, business developemnt strategy or corporate communications.
