On a recent trip to visit our long-time partner Brands2Life in London, I had a few minutes to catch up with Co-Founder Giles Fraser. Brands2Life and Horn Group are also co-founders of the Oriella Network of agencies around the world, a network we jointly created to serve our clients' needs for PR on a global basis, and we talked about our shared clients, business, technology and PR trends in the US and the UK.
In general, it has been wonderful to see how many more of our clients are seeking global communications support, as well as the notable increase in need for integrated digital communications across agencies. This means PR programs that include web and social media components. In this regard, we are both building brands and supporting sales. And like the US, our partners in the UK continue to see the cloud and the consumerization of IT as big tech trend. A great visit with some really good people on a shared mission.
