OUR WORK

Aprio has a team of highly experienced specialists, based in Johannesburg and Cape Town and London, who have the expertise to support a broad offering of communication requirements.



We are leaders in stakeholder communication activities, among them employee and media relations, and we develop tailored communication plans, messaging and collateral that are determined by our clients’ overall strategic drivers. We take a tactical approach and are mindful of how our service influences market value and complements overall business strategy.



STRATEGIC ADVICE

Our skilled, experienced and highly-regarded communications specialists assist clients with relevant, responsible and comprehensive communication strategies that enhance their corporate profile and competitiveness. We follow a tested, six-step process that begins with stakeholder identification and ends with ongoing monitoring and evaluation. Counsel at c-suite level to South Africa’s leading businesses has, in many instances, evolved into a closely aligned strategic partnership that goes beyond the delivery of a communications service.

MESSAGING &
NARRATIVE

We develop co-ordinated, consistent, clear messaging, whether it’s a matter of distilling c- suite thinking into its clearest reflection, or creatively crafting organisational narratives that excite, engage and entertain. We then enhance brand credibility by ensuring messaging is consistently disseminated across appropriate communications platforms, from multimedia digital magazines to podcasts, social media to strategically placed op-eds as well as other traditional media initiatives.

MEDIA RELATIONS

Built through years of experience at the highest level, our relationships in the South African media are second to none. We have become synonymous in the media industry with corporate action representation (including acquisitions, disposals, mergers, IPOs, fund/debt raisings and issue management). Our staff includes ex-editor-level journalists, so we know what gets attention and traction. From press releases to media roundtables and op-eds, we make sure your story gets heard.

EMPLOYEE & COMMUNITY
ENGAGEMENT

Aprio has been involved with the strategic definition, planning and implementation of numerous employee and community-engagement programmes. From businesses with a few dozen staff, to companies employing many thousands of people spread across a diverse geographic base, each process starts with ensuring a clear objective that the company wishes to achieve over the allocated time span of the strategy, and encompasses implementation, management, and, crucially, monitoring and feedback.

INVESTOR RELATIONS

The market rewards effective communication, visibility and transparency in the long run. Investor Relations (IR), done right, bridges the gap between capital allocation today and the creation of long-term value. Aprio Investor Relations (Aprio IR) has the tested, multi-sectoral expertise to help you concisely communicate your story, clarify the investment case and close the perception gap in order to attain a fair market valuation.
