Djembe Communications, a pioneering Pan-African communications consultancy, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The One Event (TOE), a leading Ghanaian public relations and events management agency, to form a strategic partnership.
Combining Djembe’s award winning international corporate communications and financial PR capabilities with TOE’s consumer PR and event expertise is a strong offering to existing and potential clients in Ghana and West African region.
In a release issued to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, it said the expanded team, consisting of Djembe Country Manager Toyin Dania and TOE’s team of seven Ghanaian staff, will be in an even stronger position to deliver successful and impactful communication programs for clients with a particular commitment to both Anglophone and Francophone West Africa.
In Ghana to announce the MOU, Djembe Communications’ Director-International, Kevin Nolan explained, “We are thrilled to further grow our presence in Ghana with this partnership with TOE.”
He said the company would now offer clients not only an added consumer PR and events capabilities but also be able to provide clients more in-depth insights in the West African regional market.
“Being the communications partner of choice across Africa, we are investing in expanding our local presence in key markets such as Ghana. With our cross-border approach when it comes to building strategies and delivering campaigns for our clients, the Ghana TOE team will be an integral part of our global network and be a benefit to all of our clients.”
He said in addition to their presence in Ghana, Djembe is present in Angola, Mozambique, Morocco, Nigeria, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and the United States through a wholly owned and integrated network of offices.
Paschorina Tedjame-Mortty, Managing Director of TOE, added, “At TOE, we recognize that the world is constantly evolving and we must be ahead of this evolution. We are therefore excited about the potential and injection of energy our strategic partnership with Djembe Communications presents not just for us, but for our clients across West Africa and the ever evolving Ghanaian business community.”
“Our values that are centered on going the extra mile and providing high quality, creative services will only be amplified by Djembe’s award winning capabilities and solid African footprint.”
The two companies would be working closely to service existing clients such as Vlisco, Philips, Infanta Malaria Prevention Foundation and Infinix amongst others.
They would both consult across the whole spectrum of communications encompassing consumer marketing, digital, events management, reputation management and stakeholder engagement as well as branding and design.
