THERE ARE MANY NAMES well known to PNG Attitude readers in a company recently established to provide public relations services in Australia, Papua New Guinea and the Asia-Pacific region.
Jackson PR Associates offers an unusual – perhaps unique - focus in public relations, specialising in communications within Asia-Pacific and staffed by people with on-the-ground experience in the region.
In a number of ways, it continues the 20-year legacy of Jackson Wells, which became one of Australia's leading public relations companies before being wound up earlier this year.
“But unlike its predecessor,” says managing director Keith Jackson, “Jackson PR Associates has great expertise in social media and has expanded its horizons to include Papua New Guinea and the Pacific, as well as Australia and Asia.”
The company’s team of professional associates is drawn from a range of countries in the region to provide a broad spectrum of public relations skills across one of the fastest growing parts of the world.
The team includes regular contributors to PNG Attitude: Keith Jackson, Emmanuel Narokobi, Bernard Yegiora, Phil Fitzpatrick and Martyn Namorong (the picture from the website shows him with director Ben Jackson).
Other associates include Martin Hadlow, just appointed secretary-general of the Asian Media Information and Communication Centre; documentary film-maker and Pacific specialist Phil Donnison; long-time journalists Bob Lawrence and David Ransom; financial communications and China guru Ed Brumby; health communications professional Andrew Greig; and organisation and change communications expert Ingrid Jackson
“I believe we’ve selected the right people to work with clients, develop plans that match their requirements, create the right messages and package them in creative action,” said director Ben Jackson.
“Jackson PR Associates has assembled a multinational team of communications professionals, covering the full galaxy of public relations skills.”
