MP&F’s Top 25 PR Questions
December 18, 2012
McNeely Pigott & Fox is celebrating 25 years in business during 2012, and one of the ways we’re celebrating is by answering the 25 questions we are most often asked about our business.
Question 18: How does MP&F create client teams?
“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
Some of my proudest moments as a public relations professional are those I share with my co-workers: hearing how a client program improves the life and future of a young person, seeing the work we’ve done have an impact on the city in which we live or the future health of an individual, celebrating MP&F’s first national Silver Anvil award, or winning new business after hours spent preparing a response to a request for proposal.
MP&F is built around teamwork. We couldn’t achieve the great things we do for our clients without all of us working together.
When you hire MP&F, we create the right team for the job, whether it’s one person or 60.
With 65 people with different skills and experience levels, we can put together the right team with the right skills for the right client. Our size also allows us the ability to devote extra resources on behalf of a client when needed.
For example, when we coordinated the John Templeton Foundation’s Spirit on the Square event this summer, MP&F was able to send 20 people to the site to help coordinate every aspect of the event, from the live entertainment to booth setup, giveaways and logistics.
While we all have gained very specific skills in specialized areas for our clients, the company makes a conscious effort to ensure everyone is a well-rounded public relations professional. Again, it’s another one of the strengths that we bring to bear on behalf of our clients every day.
We work hard to make sure we have the right team for our clients. And we work hard to remind ourselves that, as a team, we can accomplish anything.
