Public Relations

Effective storytelling is a competitive advantage. At Walk West we understand that you have a story to tell. One that you want heard by the right people in the right place at the right time. And we’re here to do just that in a thoughtful manner to achieve meaningful results.

Our Approach

As storytellers, we believe the most important part of creating a story is to listen first – and then tell. We listen to our clients, analyze a range of data and take a hard look at factors driving growth in their industry. We ask a lot of questions to understand the key elements of your story: conflict, options for a resolution, and a way to forge ahead. When we’re ready to share your story, we leverage our media relationships at the local, regional, and national level to shape a positive public image for your organization or brand. And when your story needs an extra push, we have a successful track record of working with tiered influencers to guarantee we reach your audience.

Methodology

Our team of skilled messengers and former journalists start by developing a message that is clear, concise, and compelling. Ensuring consistency across your entire communications and marketing ecosystem while driving positive outcomes is our top priority. From global brands to high-growth companies, our storytelling has helped accelerate growth for a range of clients. We offer the following services to achieve your brand’s communication goals:

+ Media relations
