Corporate Communications

Building and maintaining a good reputation nowadays is harder than ever. The new corporate world is characterized by numerous and rising competition, shorter product/service life, digitization and the constant need to go beyond client expectations.

We can help you tell your corporate story in a new and original way. Our team is trained to identify important communication issues, determine how the company is positioned and suggest strategies and tactics that most efficiently identify different target groups using different channels of communication. Our task is to convey your key message wherever needed and also contribute to building and maintaining your company’s value.

Brand Communications

In an era of digital communications expansion, when anyone can say anything, it is very difficult to create an authentic, transparent and different brand.

Our task is to make your brand visible and recognizable. Whether it is about new product/service launch, educating consumers about the characteristics of the product, encouraging consumer demand for products, revitalization or repositioning of the brand, we, the brand architects, will strive to use our creative ideas to transform your business solutions.

Media
Relations

In the sea of media reports it is very hard to get your news out. That is why we pay special attention to building and maintaining good relations with the media, which is the foundation of every PR consulting firm.

We invest a lot of time in building and maintaining good relations with reporters and editors of different media. We know how to present the news in the interest of our clients, which will satisfy the most stringent criteria of reporting. We explore trends, follow modern forms and channels of communication, analyze key issues, create interesting messages and use different tactics in order to convey adequate messages to different target groups.

Public
Affairs

Decisions made by state institutions at local and national level have a serious impact on operations of corporations, which is why a good relation with the government and other community groups is of particular importance. Relations with influential public figures and the government in order to create a favorable business climate are considered both art and science.

We listen and follow current developments and activities of legislative bodies in order to be familiar with the issues that will become the subject of public debates. We collect and process information, introduce your views and opinions to others and propose projects of mutual benefit. We can identify potential allies, help companies build relations and start talks on key issues with the creators of the business environment.

Crisis Communications

There are more and more examples of large corporation downfalls that have arisen as a result of poor management of crisis communications. Damage that may occur as a result of unprofessional crisis management can be huge, sometimes irreversible.

Preparation and development of crisis communications strategies is the most important weapon for maintaining the company’s reputation in the case of a crisis. We have the experience and developed crisis communications systems, which consist of proactive planning, preparation of crisis communications manuals, crisis team training, support in communication with the media and management of individual media queries.

Internal Communications

Good internal communications are the basis of any “healthy” company. Only well-informed, motivated and satisfied employees can become “ambassadors” who will help the company position itself in the market and achieve good business results. Therefore, it is especially important to build, cultivate and improve relations with employees.

We have extensive experience in creating and managing internal communications strategies for some of the biggest companies on the market. Whether it comes to communication with employees on a specific topic or management of corporate restructuring, our team will always know how to advise you and assist you in creating a sustainable business environment. Our knowledge in this field has been recognized and awarded by the Serbian Society for Public Relations.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate social responsibility is of paramount importance for building a good reputation of the company and its positioning as a responsible market player.

We have a broad and rich experience in the design and implementation of various socially responsible campaigns for a variety of clients and institutions. So far, we have designed, organized and supported many actions related to the protection of the environment, the importance of physical activity in maintaining health, promotion of healthy lifestyles and education of students, which reflects our commitment and belief that only a responsible business is a successful business.

Digital Communications

Social networks, blogs, forums and other online communities are growing rapidly and becoming the mainstream affecting today’s culture, politics, business and social trends.

Managing the online reputation becomes the responsibility of each company that cares about its image and relations with clients. We have developed tools to monitor and manage online reputation. We design and implement integrated online campaigns, we manage accounts on social networks and help companies set a good position and grow their business in the online environment.

Event Management

Event Management is much more than setting up meetings or organizing parties. It is a very effective way to convey the company’s message to target groups, as well as to facilitate interaction with the brand.

We have rich experience in the design and realization of various events: cocktail parties, promotions at retail stores, conferences, congresses, workshops, fairs, round table discussions with representatives of the Government, as well as major events with over 30.000 participants… The experience we have gained through working with a variety of clients and industries, is supplemented and improved by creative approach to the design of every event.

PBILD / Marketing and PR campaign “Let’s Be Clear”
Bilbord za Eko bazar u Vranju copy
V+O has created the campaign “Let’s Be Clear” to inform and educate the citizens of southern Serbia on issues of waste management and recycling. The campaign covered all 13 municipalities of Jablanica and Pcinj district, while the central activities were held in Leskovac and Vranje. This regional campaign was a project of the UN Joint Programme in southern Serbia for Peace-Building and Inclusive Local Development (PBILD), and has been implemented in several phases: raising awareness of the problem of waste management through marketing campaigns (TV, radio and billboards); panel discussion in Leskovac; competition of elementary school students in making objects from used materials; organizing the final event of Eco-Bazaar in Vranje at which the works of students were exhibited; programs of NGOs and other associations and workshops for representatives of municipalities. Panel discussion in Leskovac was attended by over 100 guests from various ministries, the working group for environmental protection, non-governmental organizations and the business sector. The response to competition of elementary schools in the making of creative objects from used material was great because even 49 schools out of 73 in Jablanica and Pcinjski district took part. Children have created more than 150 interesting works that were exhibited at the final Eco-bazaar. The whole campaign was covered by more than 100 media reports and the key message was successfully conveyed to target groups.
Miteco Knezevac / Conference “The Importance of Standardization in the Waste Industry of Serbia”
Dodela sertifikata
V+O provided a complete PR and organizational support to the press conference, organized jointly by the company Miteco Knezevac and the Serbian Chamber of Commerce. Awarding of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certificates to the company Miteco Knezevac was the occasion for which V+O has organized a press conference on the topic “The Importance of Standardization in the Waste Industry of Serbia”. In order to successfully promote these ideas the speakers from a variety of reputable institutions were invited and they presented their views on the importance of introduction of standards for improvement of company’s efficiency. The public was asked to pay attention to the benefits that companies have had since the introduction of quality standard, with special emphasis on the waste industry in which the company Miteco Knezevac operates. This conference was the occasion to wake the journalists’ interest in this topic and invite representatives of the company Miteco to be guests on their shows.
HTC / HTC One promotion
ND STUDIO_008
V+O organized a press conference at which, only two days after the world premiere, a new product on the market - HTC One was introduced. In addition to the media promotion of highly advanced technical features of this phone, potential buyers of this premium device were targeted with the help of the celebrities Lena Kovacevic and Sara Jovanovic, whose presence complemented the event. The presence of journalists at the event was great - more than 30 journalists, despite the fact that the rival company announced a new product on the same day. More than 50 positive and affirmative articles have been published about HTC One phone and its features, and the key message was conveyed to target groups.
Coca-Cola Hellenic / Internal campaign “Safety is my responsibility”
1
Coca-Cola Hellenic pays much attention to the safety and health of its employees, yet sometimes injuries do occur, which is what this socially responsible company wanted to minimize. Therefore, V+O was tasked to design a communications strategy and prevent potential risks and injuries in the workplace. After an extensive analysis of all sectors, V+O, in collaboration with Coca-Cola Hellenic team launched a campaign called “Safety is my responsibility”. The purpose of this campaign was to use personalized approach to inform, educate and motivate employees of Coca-Cola Hellenic to take care of their safety and health in the workplace. The starting idea was that the company can provide the best working conditions and protective gear, but if you are careless it cannot save you from injury. That is why the emphasis during the campaign was put on encouraging personal accountability and personalized approach to communications in which employees themselves were promoters of the campaign. We created a campaign mascot Radisa Zdravkovic, who along with other employees gave advice on how to stay healthy and safe in the workplace. Posters and a short film were made, and specific activities and actions were organized for each sector in accordance with the risks of the job. Outdoor exercises with a fitness instructor were organized for employees in the administration and management, to encourage them to exercise, which is particularly important for people who spend long periods in front of a computer. Sales people, who spend much time in the car have gone through NAVAK's training and became familiar with the new traffic law that has just come into effect. For manufacturing and storage workers, we have organized a fashion show of protective equipment where they could choose a combination of protective equipment that they like the most and thus reduce their resistance to it. This campaign was attended by more than 1.000 employees in 5 cities in Serbia, and the recorded results were great: after the campaign the employees behaved more responsibly and safely, while the number of injuries decreased from 18 to 10 in a period of six months after the campaign, compared to the six months prior to the campaign. The success of this campaign, and the achieved results have not gone unnoticed: in 2010, Coca-Cola Hellenic together with V+O received a prestigious award for this campaign from the Serbian Society for Public Relations in the category of internal communications.
Coca-Cola Hellenic / Internal Campaign “Drop by Drop for Life”
1
V+O has designed and implemented a campaign called “Drop by Drop for Life” which intended to inform, educate and encourage those who have never voluntarily donated blood - to do so, and to pay tribute to those who regularly participate in the donation. A particular challenge we had to deal with was to break all the prejudices and misconceptions related to blood donation. We created the campaign slogan “Drop by Drop for Life” and through personal example of the most humane employees decided to encourage others, who have never even thought about donating blood, to do so and save someone’s life. Promoter of the first campaign was an employee of Coca-Cola Hellenic, who has donated blood more than 70 times and who personally invited his colleagues with the help of the posters and billboards to follow his example. We have designed and distributed an e-mail invitation to all employees two days before the campaign, and by handing out a specially designed brochure the employees were personally invited to join this humanitarian initiative. The success of this internal campaign was confirmed by its results: the number of employees who donated blood in Belgrade has doubled compared to the period before the campaign. The initiative to donate blood has been successfully implemented in other cities in Serbia where Coca-Cola Hellenic has its branches, and the same initiative continued to be organized every four months with other employees. Institute of Blood Transfusion sent a letter of gratitude to the General Manager of Coca-Cola Hellenic and to all the employees of the company.

Coca-Cola Hellenic / internal campaign “We have a mission to reduce the emissions of CO₂”
SRB
V+O, in collaboration with the CCH team, has designed and implemented an internal campaign aimed to raise awareness among employees about reducing carbon emissions. A particular challenge in the design of the campaign was to highlight the positive aspects of carbon dioxide, in addition to the negative ones, because it's the same gas used for carbonation of beverages. Two main promoters of the campaign “We have a mission to reduce the emissions of CO₂” were animated heroes Ugljesa and Zdravko. The shape of their head was a microscopic image of carbon dioxide, and each of these characters has been given certain character traits. While Zdravko fought for brighter, better and healthier planet, Ugljesa represented the negative side of carbon dioxide that Zdravko was trying to help. A short performance with actors dressed in costumes of Ugljesa and Zdravko was presented, which intended to convey some of the key messages of the campaign, but in an interesting and innovative way by including employees in the interaction. After every performance which the employees gave in their offices, all employees were handed out a special brochure Ecodex - environmental code for proper conduct of employees in order to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide, and an air freshener for their cars with characters of Zdravko and Ugljesa to constantly be reminded of the importance of reducing carbon dioxide. More than 1.000 employees in five cities in Serbia have seen the performance, and the reactions of employees were excellent: the interest in this subject has increased, and all employees remembered the names of the characters and asked to be photographed with the actors. Campaign in Serbia has been so successful that it was promoted within the Coca-Cola system globally.
Solvent Rating / Presentation of the new financial service Boniteti.rs
IMG_8004
V+O had a challenging task to launch a new service by Solvent Rating, Boniteti.rs digital service, which will allow companies, through access to reliable and up to date information on credit ratings of other companies, to establish their own business model with less risk. The idea was to present this service to the key target groups, to clearly differentiate it from similar services of competitors and to position Boniteti.rs as a service that will help companies in the Serbian market run a more transparent and more reliable operation. During the promotion of this service, V+O put emphasis on the use of the Swedish software as an element that guarantees the reliability of service and invited the Swedish ambassador to be one of the speakers at the press conference. In addition, reducing business risk was also emphasized, which is particularly important for the safe operation of companies, especially in a crisis. We were able to differentiate the service from the competition, which resulted in excellent media coverage of this event: 25 journalists were present at the press conference, while more than 45 reports were made in 24 hours, including TV news report on RTS at 19:30. The service was presented at a cocktail party, which was attended by more than 150 business partners and potential users of these services.
Public Gym Class / Concept, event organization and PR support

V+O, together with the International Federation of Medical Students' Association-Serbia (IFMSA) designed, organized and provided media support for the event which aimed to raise awareness, especially of the youngest population, about how physical activity and healthy lifestyle are important for a healthy and balanced life. In this regard, the most massive public Gym Class was organized in which more than 100 primary schools in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Kragujevac and Nis took part, with more than 30.000 children exercising in their schoolyards at the same time. This event was supported by two ministries: the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development and the Ministry of Youth and Sports. V+O as the creator, designed the event, and other activities as part of the “Find the right measure” project promoting the importance of finding the right measure in all aspects of life. Organization, media training and PR support of the event were also the task of V+O, and the promoters of this campaign were medical students who, as future doctors promoted the importance of engaging in physical activity in the prevention of various diseases. Media interest in the event was great. There were more than 120 reports, 40 on TV and radio and even 30 in print media.
HTC / presentation of Windows Phone 8X and 8S by HTC
HTC0380
For its client HTC, V+O had a task to organize and present exclusively to Serbian public the new operating system Windows Phone 8 and the first HTC mobile devices using WP 8, Windows Phone 8X and 8S by HTC. The local premiere was held in parallel with the premieres around the world. More than 30 representatives of national, specialist and lifestyle media attended the press conference. Windows Phone operating system was presented in a new light, and the new HTC devices that use this operating system have drawn a lot of media attention. All this has resulted in more than 50 reports in relevant media. The media covered the story from different angles for different target groups and key messages were conveyed to all of them. After the press conference, this phone was also presented to interested citizens through numerous interactive promotions that were held in shopping centers in Belgrade, as well as in stores of our mobile operators in Serbia.

By organizing two events in one day, a press conference and a party for the partners, V+O has officially announced the entry of HTC mobile phones in the Serbian market.

Kompresor / PR support to opening of showroom in Dorcol
kompresor
The task of V+O was to develop a communications platform that will attract media attention and adequately present the newly opened showroom in Dorcol with four shops for home and office furniture (Nitea, Kare, Haus and Micros Group). A particular challenge was to develop a concept that is not recognized as a commercial one by the media, but as something worthy of their attention. Keeping all this in mind, V+O designed two communications platforms through which it positioned this showroom. The first communications platform was awakening of the lower Dorcol, like SoHo in New York and other art districts in Europe that retain the authenticity of the existing industrial area, with the discovery of new purposes. This is exactly what the owners of these four brands have done, readjusting a former auto service Kompresor into a new and modern showroom space. The second communications platform highlighted the courage of four successful business women to embark, during the global economic crisis, on such a daring venture. The opening was communicated through a press conference, press release, thematic texts, performances and interviews, as well as an evening cocktail party that had 1.200 guests. The results of PR activities were 64 media reports in traditional media. The two most popular TV channels broadcast the event live, and after the opening, many lifestyle magazines have recognized this area as an interesting place for fashion photography.
HTC / Promotion of HTC Rhyme phone on Amstel Fashion Week
Marko Savkovic, HTC Product Manager for HTC partner Markets
V+O presented the HTC Rhyme as one of the most beautifully designed phones by the choice of trendsetters. HTC Serbia Facebook page launched a buzz about this phone by placing specific information about its features. A press conference was organized for journalists to get first-hand experience, at which the idea about the origin and production of the phone was demonstrated, and additional features of the phone were introduced by the HTC representative, Marko Savkovic. Bearing in mind that this phone, in addition to its high performances, is characterized by a sophisticated design and color that is in accordance with the taste of the fairer sex, it was logical to introduce this phone at one of the most prestigious fashion events here - Fashion week. On this occasion, V+O created a specially designed space in color of the phone, where having pictures taken by a professional fashion photographer was organized. All interested parties who had their pictures taken at the HTC Rhyme stand, got the pictures on the spot, and a HTC nail polish in the color of the phone. More than 3.000 people, of whom many were well-known trendsetters, visited the HTC Rhyme stand during the four nights of Belgrade Fashion Week. There were more than 50 reports in the media about this phone.
Coca-Cola Hellenic / Internal Campaign “Efficiently before it’s too late”
NIK_1136
V+O created an internal campaign aimed to inform and spur the employees of Coca-Cola Hellenic into action to care about energy efficiency. A particular challenge was to clearly explain the difference between saving energy and energy efficiency, which is not based on the concept of saving and sacrifice, but on reduction of unnecessary energy waste. For the purpose of the campaign, we created the slogan “Efficiently before it’s too late” and the entire visual identity. Notice was sent to all employees through a specially designed e-mail about upcoming activities, and posters were placed in all nine cities where the activities were held. A special quiz on energy efficiency was designed and organized, which was performed by costumed actors on the premises of Coca-Cola Hellenic Serbia and Montenegro. The realization of quizzes in Belgrade was helped by children of elementary school “Drinka Pavlovic”, gathered in the “Eco Musketeers” group. The winning teams received prizes, flowers in branded pots, and all participants received diplomas “I give honorable ecological word that I will...“. The whole campaign, with more than 600 employees in nine cities in Serbia and Montenegro, was realized during the week of energy efficiency.
Coca-Cola Hellenic / Internal Campaign “Healthland”
DSC01342
V+O has developed the concept of “Healthland” which symbolizes the country of healthy people, to inspire employees to take care of their health. In agreement with CCH team, and on the principle of what is important for health care the following towns were designed and built in Healthland: Sports Town, Joy Town, Fruit Town, Water Town, Diet Town, Relax Town. Within the towns a variety of activities and themed events were organized based on the precise curriculum, and each town had a special branding. In Sports Town fitness instructors held a variety of fitness programs, and organized a jump rope competition, which was opened by Nadja Higl. In Water Town, nutritionists talked about the importance of hydration for health, and organized the competition in volleyball with water balloons. In Diet Town, nutritionists talked with employees and recommended diet regimens and organized a contest to identify the nutritional value of certain foods. In Relax Town, physiotherapist massaged stakeholders, and organized a contest to identify essential oils. In Joy Town the dancers taught employees and members of their families to dance, cartoonists painted caricatures, and a limbo dance competition was organized. In Fruit Town, nutritionists explained the importance of proper intake of fruit, and a competition in making fruit figures was held. All employees were distributed brochures (with the plan of activities), and they received many great prizes for participating in competitions. This campaign recorded phenomenal results: 223 people competed in various races that were organized in all towns in Healthland. 6 major (valuable) prizes were handed out and more than 200 awards for participation. More than 1.000 employees of Coca-Cola Hellenic and their family members participated in various activities in a single day, and most importantly - key health messages were conveyed in an interesting and engaging way.

The watching of the Rugby World Cup Final was organized at the press conference, which was followed by a cocktail party attended by rugby players, officials of the Rugby Union of Serbia, representatives of DHL and the media. Although rugby is not among the most popular sports in Serbia, numerous media appearances and other reports in the print and online editions helped bring the sport closer to a wider audience, encouraged young people to become interested in rugby and introduced DHL as one of the main promoters of the sport.

For the company SINGI, the leader in IT security solutions in Serbia, V+O has organized a presentation of G-Data antivirus program. Playing on the virus and antivirus card, V+O has organized an event in which the promoters were dressed as viruses or as nurses, in a well-known club in Belgrade. Viruses were tasked to infect the audience by sticking labels on their clothes, and nurses would cure the “infected” by giving them medicine, G-Data antivirus license packaged in a tube. By doing so, a buzz about the antivirus program was created and the key message was conveyed to young people. In addition to presenting this product to a wider audience, V+O has organized a press conference at the Media Centre, in which the G-Data antivirus was presented to the journalists. In order to further intrigue and entertain the guests, darts competition “G-Data hitting the target” was organized after the conference, where the grand prize was G-Data antivirus license.

ResonateLogo
For the uniqueness of the Resonate Festival 2013 to come to the fore in the best way possible, it was necessary to devise a strategy that would be clear enough, and on the other hand, specific enough to send out the message that only the chosen can be part of the Resonate festival. The festival is special in itself – from its content which is based on integrated digital art, to professionals and artists who participate in it, therefore it had to be presented in an unconventional way. Promotion of the festival started with CSR activities during the “pre-Resonate” phase – by giving out tickets to the best students of Belgrade University for free participation in Resonate workshops. Prior to the festival, “buzz” was created by visits, announcements and thematic texts by the organizers, as well as various teasers that the organizers placed on social networks. All this resulted in the sale of the entire contingent of tickets weeks before the festival. Minister of Culture opened the Resonate Festival in front of more than 1.200 visitors from all over the world. Interesting content, excellent communication of the organizers with target groups and a large number of foreigners in Belgrade attracted the attention of the media - as evidenced by over 120 media reports.

Lead photo - CCH interna kampanja
V+O Communication had a task to design and implement an internal campaign for Coca - Cola Hellenic during the Health and safety week. This year's campaign theme was proper handling of load and ergonomics. After a detailed study of health risks for each sector, it has been detected that the most common problems that occur as a result of inadequate management of weight and poor ergonomics is back pain. Based on that, a campaign slogan, “We watch your back, watch them too!” was designed in order to emphasize to employees that the Coca - Cola Hellenic is socially responsible company which take care about its employees, but also to emphasize that employees must also take care of their health. The creative strategy was based on the 3F team - physiatrist, physical therapist and fitness instructor, who are all from there point responsible for the back health. 3F team members were presented to employees as superheroes of their profession, which was symbolically represented by T-shirts with the letter F (resembling the costume that Superman wears). V+O Communication created a specific approach for each of the four sectors: administration, production, sales and warehouse employees. For each sector a variety of interesting lectures have been designed and implemented, games and competitions, so the key message is conveyed to employees in a different way, but also for the employees to be more involved in the campaign. This campaign was implemented simultaneously in Belgrade and in six cities in Serbia where Coca - Cola Hellenic has manufacturing and distribution centres. The result was great: more than 530 employees were educated about the importance of ergonomics and proper handling of load within two weeks, and another 800 employees were involved in the entire campaign through informational brochures, posters and billboards. Results of the survey showed that more than 90 per cent of employees adopted by the advices and key messages that were communicated in the course of Health and safety week.

Lead photo nadji vremena (1)
During January and February of 2014, V+O has successfully implemented a campaign called "Find the Time", which has aimed at informing and educating the public about the importance of preserving and improving the health of women and the importance of family planning. Activities within the campaign over a period of two months have generated the attention of local, but also national public, and the results achieved provides hope that male and female citizens of Serbia will find more time for their health in the upcoming period. The “Find the time“ campaign was funded by the European Union and the Swiss Government, through the European Partnership with Municipalities EU PROGRESS. While conducting a detailed research before the start of the campaign, V+O detected, as a biggest problem, a fact that the number of cervical cancer and breast cancer in Serbia is constantly growing, and that women, in many cases the reasons they do not go to regular gynaecological examinations is that they do not have enough time to dedicate to themselves, and that they have usually something else more important than their health. Because of this, the campaign is called “Find the time”, to suggest that every woman has to dedicate at least 30 minutes for themselves and their health, because that is the only way to be happy with yourself, and to be good and healthy for your family and friends. The initial activity of the campaign was to organize events in the city’s central squares in Vranje, Bujanovac and Presevo, which took place simultaneously, in which medical students are talking with citizens on the importance of regular gynaecological examinations, handing out brochures and promotional materials. On this occasion, students had contact with more than 600 people and through interaction with them they have met with a positive response, a lot of women recognized and recorded in there plan to be more regular in when it comes to going for gynaecological examinations. For professional public and medical professionals, campaign was introduced through a conference, which was organized in the hall of the municipality of Bujanovac, at which the speakers were representatives of the Ministry of Health, Institute of Public Health "Milan Jovanovic Batut" EU Progress, representatives of local governments, specialist’s doctors - an oncologist and gynaecologist. The aim of this conference was to start with the professional aspect of the discussion on the topic of prevention of breast cancer and cervical cancer, as well as to initiate a debate on the potential opportunities for deeper involvement of local government in the fight against these diseases. At the conference, which was attended by more than 80 guests, speakers expressed great satisfaction that campaigns like these are implemented, because raising public awareness of reproductive health is of great importance for all the citizens of Serbia. The last activity in the framework of the campaign was directed towards high school students and students from Vranje, Presevo and Bujanovac. Considering that young people are the ones who engage for the first time in sexual relations and family planning, this kind of lecture was a necessary step to make as many high school and college students educated about sexual behaviour and reproductive health. Lectures were given by medical students in four secondary and high schools in Bujanovac, Presevo and Vranje, and on this occasion they informed and educated more than 550 young people in the region, also an anonymous questionnaire was conducted. The survey results showed that the main source of information is internet, and that the main reason for irregular examinations is fear. Through "Find the time" campaign, more than 1,200 people from Vranje , Presevo and Bujanovac were directly informed and educated, while the number of indirectly informed through intensive TV, radio and billboard advertising, as well as posters that are placed in schools and health centers, encouraged more than tens of thousands of people. All events within the campaign were monitored by local and regional television, radio stations, online media and national media, with the result that the campaign "Find the time" had over 70 announcement. What is probably the most important result of this campaign is that it encouraged and inspired an additional initiatives at the local level which have been realized after the campaign "Find the time".

We helped creating themes of the panels, inviting speakers, creating web platforms, and in order to engage media representatives in planning Miteco Forum, we gathered them for a breakfast meeting to hear the topics that interest them (sustainable waste management system, ecology, legal regulations, Serbia's accession to the EU in this area etc. Based on this, we have designed a variety of topics with a focus on the responses that could be heard in the Forum, qualified ''tailor made" texts before, during and after the Forum, and depending on the type of media, we arranged interviews with the Miteco company representatives, but also with the most important participants in the Forum for domestic and foreign economic, social and political media and portals.

James Bond event / Heineken team building
01
This time V + O Communication had a challenge to design and implement the creative concept for Heineken team building in four days, all in accordance with a given theme CHANGE that should be associated with the most famous secret agent in the world - James Bond. Why James Bond? The idea was that the theme of change through which over the years has passed the cult film hero, shows that in every aspect of life the change is indicator that we are progressing. The same idea should be transferred to the employees, through lecture of HR professionals, but also in relation to a given symbolism. Under the baton of V + O Communication event supposed to be attractive and interesting. That's why we called it "Licence to Change" inspired with one Bond's film. The task of V + O team was to make this event more interesting through the teaser and different types of activation that were supposed to be designed in a very short period of time, in order to promote team spirit and enthusiasm. Activations were designed to be a thematic close to the famous film titles in the series of James Bond. Scenery, of course, looked like scenes from famous films - light, sound and smoke effects have further contributed to the experience. "The real" James Bond with his girls led the employees through the story, and when they received a mysterious text message invitation to be part of a secret task, the atmosphere was further heated up. We would point out that we are quite proud of the game we designed in the form of puzzles and hidden clues, where only the teamwork could help "to dismantle the bomb and save the world." They did it, team spirit won! Impressions were so positive, and that night and the days after the compliments were coming to us from all sides, and a part which was in charge of V + O has been highly evaluated in the evaluation.
Heineken / Organization of the corporate New Year’s Eve celebration
Heineken-3
Towards the New Year holidays, we got a special task from company Heineken: to come up with a creative concept on the topic of "Winner", which was the main motive of the corporate celebration, and to provide organizational support through the entire event. In order to show that the company Heineken cares about its employees, we have proposed an unusual concept: the employees as the stars of the company Heineken. We implemented this concept because in every successful company, as well as in Heineken, the employees are the main stars, and because the star is also a part of the logo of the company Heineken. Bearing in mind that the company Heineken wanted to reward its employees for brilliant business results achieved in 2014, the idea was that they, throughout the celebration, are treated as winners, actually - the stars of the company Heineken. Branding of space included the whole concept: a red carpet waiting for the staff at the entrance, lighting effects, branded back drop with the stars were set for photographing, and also food in the form of stars was served on the tables. Hostesses greeted guests at the entrance and wished them welcome: each of the men received a special stitched medal with the star, and women got bracelets with stars pendant, as a souvenir of this event. For the moderator and music band we chose Mariju Kilibardu i „Creative band“- the most popular in their professions - biggest stars, so that they could also contribute to the overall event. 160 employees in Heineken company enjoyed and had fun on New Year's Eve, which was organized in Novi Sad - one of the three cities in which Heineken operates. For a few employees, who have been declared for the best colleagues during the 2014, Heineken company provided special gifts - vouchers for travel. The whole party passed in a pleasant and great atmosphere, and our client – Heineken company, noted that employees told that this corporate New Year's Eve celebration was one of the best they attended.
