Businesses serious about explaining their issues and improving their reputation must elevate the importance of the communications role. Top candidates require mastery of digital communications; media relations; stakeholder engagement; internal communications; event management; and production of visually-appealing and well-written materials. We also look for good story-tellers who can connect with their audiences’ hearts and minds, as people remember stories more than message points.
The Dober Partners team have recruited Communication Directors for numerous organisations ranging from the European Round Table of Industrialists to Airports Council International, and Edelman to FTI Consulting.
We understand communications very well from having been practitioners ourselves. Natalia Kurop has been a Director of Communications for three European associations including DIGITAL EUROPE, and served on the Board of the European Association of Communication Directors. Mark Dober led the Strategic Communications Practice of Brussels then largest consultancy, APCO Worldwide. Christophe Lecureuil previously led Corporate Communications for the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, and the $10 billion operation Yum! Brands.
We also provide ground-breaking research. We published ‘EU Media Relations: Brussels Journalists Survey & what the findings reveal for Communicators; and a detailed analysis of the role of European trade associations to promote and defend the reputation of the sectors they represent.
