Zurich-based PR and communications agency open up AG and Patrick Rohr Kommunikation GmbH, a provider of communications training and media productions, are to build on their existing loose cooperation to form a strategic partnership. This will centre primarily on jointly conducting training for media appearances and public speaking. Both companies will remain independent, and will continue to offer their other services separately.
Kilian Borter, partner at open up: “We have been working together for nearly ten years, and this move cements and structures that relationship. I’m delighted that open up will thus be able to add media training to its range of services. This is an ideal fit in our offering in the media relations and crisis communications area.”
The two agencies have cooperated on various projects in the past. Patrick Rohr has also been working as a photographer for two years, primarily for NGOs and NPOs, and this often requires him to spend several weeks out of the country at a time.
Patrick Rohr: “This makes organizing training sessions an increasingly demanding task. I am pleased to have found a trusted partner in open up to provide the necessary support to enable us to continue to offer the popular media training services we have steadily developed over the past ten years.”
Patrick Rohr Kommunikation has established a network of renowned coaches and journalists over the years to provide media training, and they will continue to perform these roles in the future cooperation set-up.
