About Panke

Founded in 2015, Panke is a young and ambitious consultancy. We started this business because we believe that the field of communications advice will go through a phase of disruption already visible in many other industries.

Panke supports clients with their corporate affairs strategies, often in non-routine, high-stake situations. We marry Online and Offline, PR and PA, trusted advisory and technological edge. Because we believe: These separations shouldn't exist.

Developing answers in business critical situations, delivering messages to key stakeholders and giving trustable advice – more often than not, these activities have remained an offline-only business. As we are die-hard consultants, we have invested in understanding and using technology to increase the effect of our work in addition to traditional influencer and media strategies. We root our approach in data-driven analyses and are drawing from digital marketing as much as from media and political expertise.

Most importantly, our clients are in the center of everything we do. We will go out of our way to make them successful. We will never pretend to know better when we don’t. And we will do everything to develop long-term relationships for the mutual benefit rather than to optimize short-term profit. The retention of nearly all clients we have worked with right since the beginning makes us confident that our approach will continue to fall on fertile ground.

  [Digital] Corporate Affairs Strategies

[Digital] Corporate Affairs Strategies

Panke supports clients in developing and executing their corporate affairs strategies, routinely crossing the boundaries between PR and PA and between Online and Offline. In most simple terms: We prepare the CEO’s interview in a critical situation or write her op-ed – but also ensure messages reach key influencers digitally. Furthermore, we have extensive experience in preparing difficult negotiations.

Examples of our work include strategies for:

  • Reputation and positioning programs
  • Challenging negotiations
  • Restructuring or transformation programs
  • Labor conflicts
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Crises

  • Facilitation of workshops
