What We Do
B2B specialists with over a decade of experience across different industry verticals, we custom-create effective communications strategies for both high profile corporate clients and new-to-market businesses.
SMC works with specialist English and Arabic writers with PR and journalistic backgrounds and leverages the strengths of our in-house professional resources to deliver results across traditional print media and broadcast channels as well as the fast-paced digital and social media arena.
A proven track record of success, keen insight into client motivations and an in-depth understanding of the regional markets in which we operate, is the basis for SMC’s expertise in the B2C arena.
From new restaurant brands to healthcare services, we bring senior level strategic advisory capabilities and dynamic campaign strategies to the table; and are experienced in providing solutions throughout the entire communications spectrum, providing our clients with the quality assurance and the results they demand.
We’ll ask plenty of questions to ensure we understand your business and objectives, and then research, devise and implement effective campaigns – on time and to budget – delivering results which exceed expectations.
Our experienced team provides strategic advice for success around business critical issues, plans and projects, as well to public affairs campaigns and engagement with stakeholders and communities in addition to providing support for major bids.
Turnkey corporate event management is another aspect of the communications mix where Shamal PR can add value to your business through effective message dissemination.
We manage all aspects of an event, from A to Z, whether it’s participation at a major conference or industry seminar, through to product launches, exhibitions, press conferences or full onsite press office organisation. The SMC team can also take care of venue booking, set-up and on-site branding.
At SMC, issues relating to corporate image and reputation are carefully tracked and every effort made to pre-empt potential issues or crises. Why wait for a crisis before putting a crisis management plan in place?
In times of crisis, speed, transparency and effectiveness of message are critical. With crisis management plans prepared well in advance of any situation, SMC helps you manage and mitigate any potential damage to your organisation’s reputation.
