“I founded csr & communication because today sound relationships with stakeholders play a crucial role for business sucess. Thus the entire approach towards communication, internally and externally, undergoes a paradigmatic shift from monologue to dialogue to conversation – from talking to listening to building relationships – as credibility is a highly sensitive issue for corporate reputation. The successful communication of corporate sustainability is the key to viable relationships with stakeholders. It enables the understanding of corporate decisions, finding support among stakeholders and opening the doors to innovation and business solutions for societies most pressing issues. csr & communication offers a maximum of expertise and experience in relationship building for a sustainiable future to its clients.”
