Our work includes media relations, community relations, crisis communications, employee relations, social networking, branding, marketing communications, digital/social and more.
Ward believes a public relations and marketing communications firm is only as good as its people because that's who the client works with daily. Since great firms require great people, Ward strictly adheres to an A-player-only hiring philosophy. Ward's experienced team respects clients' need for outsourced help from trusted advisors without the hassle. And the firm's proven processes help clients achieve their objectives while enjoying an experience of extraordinary client service and budget management.
Ward's greatest reward is client satisfaction, and the firm strives to achieve that acknowledgement daily. Ward has been honored locally, regionally and nationally with hundreds of awards, including the 2013 PRSA Houston Grand Excalibur, across the spectrum of PR work, from media relations, marketing, PR and internal communications to issues management, crisis communications and digital.

The firm lives and works by a strong cultural mantra, simply stated as "Respect at Work." Ward employees hold themselves accountable for ensuring respect is actively at work in the workplace, with respect defined as "having one's needs and opinions honored." The result? A consistently positive experience by everyone involved.
