Public Relations

At VI, PR is pretty radical.

What is it?

Traditional PR is focused on media relations, crisis communications, internal communication and event planning. You work with the press to get news coverage. If you find yourself in the news unexpectedly, you manage the best you can.

Today, our view of PR has expanded. With a little creativity, the opportunities are endless. And thanks to a radically transformed media landscape, that’s never been truer than it is right now. Today there is far more opportunity to gain coverage, manage brands and support the total marketing effort if PR is part of an integrated strategy.
