We’ve all heard the term, ‘public relations’ or ‘PR’ so why is so little known about PR firms, especially in SE Asia, and especially in the SME and start-up sectors in Malaysia? The most common questions I get asked – on an almost daily basis – include, what do PR agencies do? Are PR agencies the same as marketing agencies? What sort of results can they achieve for my business and how do they achieve those results?
To clear these doubts and help businesses understand the benefits of public relations, Lars Voedisch, Founder and Managing Director, PRecious Communications along with Neil Fraser, Malaysia Market Lead for PRecious Communications presented a webinar titled ‘PR 101 Storytelling for Business’ organised in partnership with Common Ground. The idea was devised primarily with start-ups in mind but would be useful for all businesses, whatever stage their growth journey.
Lars and Neil tackle how businesses can best manage their communications during challenging times, what works and what doesn’t, common mistakes, myths and misperceptions, what the future holds for the industry and what companies can do differently to maximise the effect. While this was a humble introduction to the fundamentals of PR and a one-hour effort to remove any veils of secrecy surrounding the industry, we were honoured to be joined by such a diverse number of attendees, ranging from industry peers, start-ups keen to learn more, local and regional media and those considering a career in public relations.
