How to stand out from competitors – and be heard – with all the digital noise?After 15 years experience at Ogilvy and Porter Novelli, Beatrice shares with the team and clients, her own vision of public relations.
“I am always encouraging my clients to take a step back from their day to day agenda and take a higher view perspective on their own market. I try to put myself in their shoes and analyse the news through their experience in order to make their stakes relevant within the Big Picture.”
Beatrice’s role is to participate with the team, placing the client’s views and activities back into their broader context for an efficient communication programme and crafting messages that stand out of the crowded media agenda.
“I am trying to take the best of my experience garnered from big agencies, whilst providing current edgy, insights with the quick actions of a start-up. My goal is to propose a unique angle, and contribute to building a trusting relationship which is likely to ensure the success of the programmes which we define and implement for our clients ».

Following psychology, journalism and communication studies, Jessica chose to develop her talent for building relations between organisations and their publics. She is particularly gifted in contextualising campaigns, and feeding PR programmes with the broader news.
“As a professional communications representative between companies and their audiences, I sit in a very priviledged place to best leverage approaches and messages which are most effective. Ultimately, my position enables me to be efficient for our clients, echoing the news.”
Jessica’s role at Look Sharp PR Consultancy is in having a proactive and reactive approach to the media and build an efficient influential network and anticipate relevant answers to media’s demands. It all relies on being able to monitor topics around our client’s ecosystems, and to be able to jump on related potentially relevant topics around innovations, competition, legal issues, etc.
