Case Study

For many years, Resolve has assisted an agricultural association with their proactive and reactive public relations work to showcase their industry and the significant economic impact that they have in South Africa. This has extended to strategic communications advice and guidance on positioning the client’s produce favourably on the world’s stage as they seek to expand market access around the world – and take on global players and nations targeting highly competitive markets.

Our public relations work in providing a full press office service has included:

  • drafting and selling press statements and opinion pieces

  • preparing and advising on holding statements in anticipation of requiring responses in crises

  • drafting internal communications and newsletters

  • media training for spokespeople

  • planning and communications for a biannual Summit including media collateral

  • advising on and securing the publication of a seminal book by a renowned international expert

Resolve’s campaigns have resulted in extensive, positive and on-message coverage across the media, reaching both the public and key decision makers. Our team has helped position the client as an agricultural leader in the Southern Africa region, and a notable player in world markets.
