Who we are

Competence was established to respond to the unmet communication needs of multinationals and small/medium-sized businesses alike, who often cannot find a cost-effective solution in the services offered by large but 'impersonal' PR networks or by single professionals who lack an organised structure and/or an international background.

Competence has a distinctive and analytical strategic approach to integrated communication, which allows for flexibility in terms of timing and budget and relies on the expert use of new media.

The Agency’s team is organised into five divisions - CORPORATE, CONSUMER, TRAVEL, TECHNOLOGY and SOCIAL - comprised of internal professionals and some long-standing consultants who together give life to a 'consulting boutique' that designs and implements, with expertise and passion, turnkey 'communication plans': from media relations to internal communication, from special events to training and coaching, from crisis management to the use of social media.

Since 2006 we have had the pleasure to work for over 60 companies and associations that operate in diverse sectors: Food and Beverage, Toys and Games, Banks and Insurance Firms, Web and Hi Tech, Oil and Energy, Travel and Tourism, just to mention a few.

With a new host of digital communication professionals, Competence has set up a Social Media Marketing team made up of analysts, community managers and account managers. With national and international expertise in sectors such as beauty care, non-profit, and web technology, the team develops Social Media Marketing strategies and oversees their implementation in all its stages: community monitoring, management of social accounts, analysis of results.
