Who We Are

about

We are a strategic communications consulting firm, with over 20 years experience in Nigeria and West Africa

First, we have unrivalled experience and expertise in all aspects of strategic communications and have specialised in the practice of public relations over the last two decades. In the period, we have worked with some of the highest profile organisations in the country that have both local and international reporting structures.

The result is that we have an advanced understanding of the trends, issues and sensitivities of operating in the Nigerian environment. This has come from extensive practice covering various aspects of public relations and a wide variety of sectors and industries. Major campaigns undertaken include ushering the telcos MTN and Etisalat into the country; managing the protracted Trovan clinical trials crisis for Pfizer; and supporting the joint efforts of the Federal Government, and the UK Department for International Development (DfID-UK) in securing passage of critical financial reform bills; and helping with the Stanbic-IBTC merger which was Nigeria's first tender offer. Others include managing brand repositioning and perception campaigns for such major consumer brands as Coca Cola, Maggi, Pampers, and Oral B among others.

Our Mission
We influence those who matter most to our clients by creating and directing conversations through multiple channels, based on deep insights.

How we got here
C&F Porter Novelli has grown and evolved over the years as the driving force in the transformation of the Nigerian public relations business. We opened our doors in 1998 as The Corporate and Financial Communications Limited, a specialist consultancy focused on corporate and financial communications. By 2001 we had developed practices in all areas of public relations and were launching major brands and public issue campaigns into the Nigerian market space. In 2007 we took another major step toward solidifying our global reach by joining the vast Porter Novelli network as an affiliate partner and rebranded under the name C&F Porter Novelli.
