HermesPR is a boutique PR consultancy for early and growth-stage companies. We work with clients with business visions rooted in boldness, innovation and smart risk taking.
We believe in thoughtfulness. Thoughtful strategy. Thoughtful planning. Thoughtful execution. It's about telling the right story at the right time to the right audiences. It's about a deep, nuanced, contextual and historical understanding of the market and cultural landscape. It’s about anticipating how the story we tell today will impact the stories we can tell in a month, six months, a year.
Compassion + Connection
Our clients are not just "clients." They are living, breathing and feeling human beings on the other side of slack, email, phone, video chat or the meeting table. They are individuals with hopes, dreams, aspirations and pressures, collectively shaped by uniquely beautiful personal histories. Yes, we care about our clients' products and growth strategies. More importantly, we care about our clients as human beings. It is our way of being to honor our clients as humans first.
We are relentlessly honest. We practice radical honesty with ourselves, even when it is less than pleasant to do so. We (gently) share with our clients what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. We are comfortable in the space between sharing our truth and receiving a client’s feedback. Our honesty and our integrity are intertwined. Without one, we can’t have the other.
We do our best work when we understand our purpose. This means embracing big picture thinking and a shared understanding of what PR is meant to drive for our clients' businesses. This allows us to more effectively tap our skillsets, whether it is creative storytelling, leveraging press relationships, developing and placing a well-timed thought piece or securing a highly-targeted speaking opportunity that moves the needle with prospects, customers, influencers or investors.
