I remember it so vividly.
It was 1993. I was 27 and about to leap into the thrilling unknown of launching a PR agency with my colleague, Jim. We were having lunch mapping out a simple strategy on a paper napkin.
We were filled with a healthy dose of fear but were inspired to seize an opportunity to create something special. Something positive to counter the daily challenges, negativity and unhealthy stress. We set out on a mission of bringing more good news into the world.
Now, thirty years later, the world has never needed it more.
Through the past three decades, O&G has stayed true to our guiding principles of being good and doing good. We have enhanced reputations for hundreds of brands. We’ve filled the universe with good intentions, good ideas, and good inspiration. We’ve helped our media colleagues produce memorable storytelling. We’ve impacted local communities. We’ve helped good companies become better and helped talented people grow their careers.
We are humble enough to know we’re not saving the world, but proud enough to know we’re contributing to make it better in our own way.
None of this would be possible without our clients and our amazing staff throughout the decades who have challenged us and inspired us. We’re grateful for your trust and partnership. We’re also thankful for our kind partners, spouses, kids (and pets) for being part of our O&G story and for their unwavering support. As we celebrate this 30-year milestone, we promise to keep pushing ourselves to do more “good” in the world.
Cheers to 30 more!
Barbara, CEO & Founding Partner
