WHY IPRN is different?

1. As a network of owner managed PR companies and independent entrepreneurs, we are different and operate in highly flexible ways.
2. The IPRN member you contact is the person in charge of that business –the owner or a senior director. Your business matters to us personally.
3. Client sovereignty is greater with independent agencies than with multinationals. We put our clients’ interests before our own. Growing our clients’ business is part of our DNA.

4. We guarantee integrity, experience and professionalism, as a knowledge based multicultural PR organization.

5. We value our staff and offer them opportunities to develop their careers, motivation to grow and activities to learn.

6. We don’t depend on transnational agreements adapted to other markets, we devise programmes that take account of the local culture and global circumstances.
7. We are able to coordinate or manage a group of agencies from different countries, languages and cultures, thus adding value to your project.

8. We are an open, transparent, lean and efficient international PR organization.
