When Weber Shandwick was formed we set out a mission that, by design, has no end date. We committed to be "engaging always." We knew then, and more so now, that being open, aspirational and entrepreneurial is what it takes to engage people and deliver business impact in a rapidly changing environment. Our journey to date might surprise you. From a powerful PR base, weve built-in one of the worlds largest, global social agencies. Then we added Mediaco, a pioneering, award-winning content consulting and publishing operation. And today, we continue to lead digital and advertising assignments for some of the world's most enduring companies and social causes. Along the way, weve been validated repeatedly by Ad Ages A List, creative leadership at Cannes Lions and global frontrunner status in the PR category. Yet despite our industry-leading status among marketing services agencies, we're still just getting started. We strive to bring our collective intelligence, open architecture model and continuous learning to our work, not to mention agility required to deliver it. Were strategists, builders, analysts, producers, designers, creatives, technologists. And we unite around big ideas. So engaging always. is really about innovative change.
