Opr was created in Australia in 2001. Our founders sought out the best boutique agencies across the country and brought them together: Howorth for business-to-business and technology specialists; Parker & Partners for public affairs and corporate communication; Impact for employee engagement.
The depth of specialist capabilities within opr is unmatched in the Australian PR industry. Each of our brands is narrow in its focus and deep in its specialisation.
Where we didn’t believe there was a market leader, we created new brands from the ground up – Pulse for consumer and brand marketing; opr Health for healthcare and health-related lifestyle and, most recently in 2009, we created Social@Ogilvy, Australia’s first and now largest, dedicated social media agency.
Today, more often than not we come together as opr – where a team is needed that can handle more than just one specialist area, for example when a brief demands corporate PR, employee engagement and resonance with their customers.
opr is the parent brand for six PR agencies and practices that cross disciplines and sectors.
When clients have a brief that requires just one discipline they will work with that agency brand (e.g. Pulse for Consumer PR, Howorth for technology, etc.) – but where an integrated team is needed that may require different disciplines we build a team from across the six brands and come together as opr. It’s that simple.
