Our philosophy

We live in the reputation age. More importantly, we live in the reputation economy. Living in the digital age means all your successes and mistakes are there for all to see, and the wealth of information means people are increasingly immune to any advertising and marketing, no matter how skillful or imaginative. Who you are now matters more than what you sell. People care more than just about your product; they care about you. What is it that you do? What are your values? What will they support when they support you?

A good reputation opens many doors – clients are more willing to choose your product or service, you have the best employees working for you, investors see opportunities instead of risks. A reputation is created by who you are and what you do, as well as the way you communicate and establish relationships. 

Purposeful relationships are also important in the digital era. It is what sets you apart from others and proves advantageous in competition, because we trust those who we know best. Everyone is fighting for attention; as a result, it is personal, empathic and engaging communication which leads to success in business. The good news is that a reputation can be developed and efficiently managed by combining it with strategic business goals and conscious effort. We are sure of it and we believe that it is always possible to do better.

Who We Are

Our business card says “Great since 1998”. It is the year when we - Dagnija and Juris - met each other at university. Almost 20 years have passed since this event. It has enabled us to master our respective fields of communication and combine this experience to create a unique reputation management agency.

We have created a boutique agency. We think of our clients as our partners. Our wide network of freelance professionals allows us to match our partners with the best team for their needs. We will be with you on every step, from creating a reputation management strategy and content to public speaking training and handling crisis communication emergencies. Our services are available in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia and, if necessary, also throughout Europe.

We are always developing and keeping track of the latest industry trends, so we have joined forces with our French partners to create the international conference Reputation Time. We have also launched the Nordic Reputation Institute, a platform for professionals to discuss the importance and research of reputation in business, politics and media.

What We Do

Reputation strategy

With a carefully developed and painstakingly executed reputation strategy we can open the door to a flawless reputation. And yes, your own name is important as well: it is another brand that has to be managed.

Event management

We can be both the "head" and the "arms and legs", so we keep our finger on the pulse. Words without works have no power, so we take care not only of your public announcements, but also about your the press events, conferences, and seminars which bring together the people you need.

Media relations

Handling your media relations with our experience and extensive network of media contacts, we make sure your news reach the right people. If need be, we will also add digital communications.

Corporate communications

The reputation of a company depends not just on its communication with clients, but also on its relationship with its employees, partners and all the other people who are responsible for your successes and failures. We help create everyday Corporate communications for all the involved parties.

Crisis communication

And yet, some unexpected things are bound to happen. We know it, and we have been through it. So when the crisis comes, we keep a cool head and a clear mind, quickly developing and executing strategy that delivers clear information and damage control.

Communications training

Being in the centre of attention can be difficult. Communications training will help you keep calm and find the right words when the cameras and microphones point at you. We will always be exactly one phone call away.

Content development and design

As the saying goes, great content without the right form is just one half of the victory. So we care about both: content development together with design is one of our strengths.
