A pioneering pan-African communications consultancy, Djembe Communications, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to form a partnership with leading Ghanaian public relations and events management agency, The One Event (TOE).
Combining Djembe’s award-winning international corporate communications and financial PR capabilities with TOE’s consumer PR and event expertise is a strong offering to existing and potential clients in Ghana and West African region.
The expanded team, consisting of Djembe Country Manager, Toyin Dania and TOE’s team of seven Ghanaian staff, would be in an even stronger position to deliver successful and impactful communication programmes for clients with a particular commitment to both Anglophone and Francophone West Africa.
In Ghana to announce the partnership, Djembe Communications’ Director-International, Kevin Nolan explained, “We are thrilled to further grow our presence in Ghana with this partnership with TOE. As we will now offer our clients not only an added consumer PR and events capabilities but also be able to provide clients more in-depth insights in the West African regional market.
“Being the communications partner of choice across Africa, we are investing in expanding our local presence in key markets such as Ghana,” he said.
He added that with Djembe’s cross-border approach as regards building strategies and delivering campaigns for clients, “the Ghana TOE team will be an integral part of our global network and be a benefit to all of our clients.”
In addition to a presence in Accra, Djembe is present in Angola, Mozambique, Morocco, Nigeria, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and the United States through a wholly owned and integrated network of offices.
Managing Director of The One Event, Paschorina Tedjame-Mortty said The One Event recognises that the world is constantly evolving and there’s the need to be ahead of the evolution.
“We are therefore excited about the potential and the injection of energy our strategic partnership with Djembe Communications presents not just for us, but for our clients across West Africa and the ever evolving Ghanaian business community.
“Our values that are centered on going the extra mile and providing high quality, creative services will only be amplified by Djembe’s award-winning capabilities and solid African footprint.”
