In its 15 years of operation, GNORA has managed to gain the trust of the biggest Cypriot companies and organisations, of important political personalities, as well as of international businessmen and foreign companies active in Cyprus.
GNORA Communication Consultants has entered 2018 with new momentum, having completed two very important changes that were designed and implemented over the past year.
The most important change has to do with GNORA’s share structure, which was broadened based on a plan that was drawn up on behalf of the company by PwC. The plan provides for a gradual reduction in the stake of the company’s initial shareholders, Managing Director Andreas Hadjikyriacos and General Manager Pambos Kaskanis, with the addition of new shareholders. Based on the new plan, three new GNORA executives were added to the company’s share structure before the end of 2017: Corporate Communication Manager Sylvia Karakatsani, and managing communication consultants Kypros Hadjiathanasiou and Charalambos Rossides.
The second change saw the company make full use of the capabilities offered by new technologies. Its objective, which is to be equally effective and provide the same quality of services when it came to online and digital media, was achieved through a series of staff training programmes and collaboration with specialised outside partners. Today the company is in a position to provide services that cover needs relating to training, developing, managing and monitoring digital media.
GNORA Managing Director Andreas Hadjikyriacos described 2018 as a very important year for the company, which 15 years since its establishment, is entering a new era. “Our goal, which is to help our clients take advantage of opportunities and manage any potential challenges by acting promptly and effectively in order to safeguard and protect their reputation, has not changed. What has changed is the environment in which we operate and the capabilities offered by new technologies. We have a duty to continually monitor developments in our sector, to explore new channels and reconnoitre the landscape in a timely manner, both for us and our clients.”
GNORA offers services that cover the entire range of its clients’ communication needs. It designs, manages and protects the image and reputation of companies, political groupings, individuals and organisations, by offering services that include Press Office, Media Relations, Crisis Management, Lobbying, Media Monitoring, comprehensive Internal Communication and Corporate Social Responsibility programmes, as well as all types of publishing activities.
By examining each client’s needs and industry in depth, GNORA’s experienced communication team forms a Strategic Communication Plan, which includes communication goals, messages, targeted audiences and the tools / media that can be used.
