Planning an international campaign requires both global thinking and local knowledge. Wildfire’s experience with both customers and PR agencies from around the world make us ideally placed to plan and coordinate your strategy. We understand that different approaches to the same objectives will be required across borders and we also understand that different agencies have different competencies and specialities in delivering your requirements.
