We are confident that we will continue to build on our promise of being a creative and an integrated specialist that finds the right solutions for our clients.”

He added, “Globally, we have unveiled a new brand, positioning and website to celebrate our 45 years in business – PPR – The Change Agency. The new brand and Change Agency positioning reflects our focus on the impact we can have through communications for the brands, organisations and governments we represent.”

With more than 20 years of experience in communications, Sandhir’s areas of expertise include corporate and brand reputation programmes, media relations, thought leadership, CEO positioning, integrated communication campaigns, measurement, leadership training and issues and crisis management.
