We have over 30 years experience working in national and international marketing communications devising strategies. We particularly focus on events providing stories to the international media and working with national and international news agencies. We prepare clients and package their stories to meet the media's needs. Part of that work is producing photo and video content to support their story and their social media. We also help clients develop their social media presence.
In addition we use such tactics as:
1. Media relations
2. Website content
3. Social media
Our work has been divided between the business and the not-for-profit / charity sectors. We have also worked on a range of major brands such as Toyota, Perrier and Carlsberg. This work involved working to extensive branding / corporate identity guidelines.
Cyclist successfully finishes the fastest ever ride of the Himalayas
Austrian cyclist Jacob Zurl (26) successfully finished the fastest ever ride of the Himalayas in 38 hours 40 min.
Here is his brief report in his own words.
"Because of the heavy rain in Manali we started on Monday (August 4th, 2014.) at 11:00 am in Manali - Main Bazar. I reached the Khardung La at 1:40 am.
It was harder than I ever thought. To cycle for so many hours in such high altitude is real extrem and very difficult for mind and body. Every hour my support crew measured my oxygen saturation and three times it was the lowest ever. So my support team decided to do a short stop. They also thought that my body wouldn't handle the thin air over that many hours and that he would have to stop the record attempt. I really want to thank my girlfriend, Greta (who studies medicine), who made the decision that he can go on.
The road was so bad - maybe only 50% was asphalt - and at the end my arms and my ass hurt so much."
He did his ride without stopping for sleeping while dealing with extreme temperatures, the poor / no road surface, freezing streams, slush and thin air of high altitude. Jacob was attempting to do this in less than 48 hours - a journey that is usually completed by experienced cyclists in two weeks!
