euronique+communications was founded in February 2011 by Elisabeth Maragoula on the principle of expanding business cooperation across borders. Working as a liaison between Europe and the United States, she found that correspondence at the global level often lacks clear messaging that resonates well in the recipient country. Given her passion for business and deep communications expertise, she put the concept of building strategic relationships into motion.
The company was first introduced in Southeast Europe through the production of the Building Powerful Influence Project, and maintained a focus on client business conferences and projects in the region for the first two years. In 2013, euronique+communications was relaunched in Northern California, and has since carved out a niche of expanding clients' reach to new markets from California and assisting clients to enter the California market.
Our vision is to create new relationships for clients through the use of knowledge, influence and networking - key parts of strategic communications. Increasing profits in today's multicultural business environment requires a combination of all three for effective communications to take hold.
euronique+communications attains this combination by way of its unique formula integrating human relations, cultural awareness and business acumen into clients' communications strategies. We are dedicated to filling the gap in cross-cultural business relations and creating leverage for new opportunities.
We produce the strategic communications plans that increase influence and create solid connections.
Our area of interest is emerging and developing economies, and our regional focus is Southeast Europe and California. In an aim to promote growth within the region, we remain involved in up-coming cross-border projects in the area, and are always interested in your feedback, interest and proposals for new projects.
