Founded by Lamia Kamel MCIPR as a boutique agency in 2005, CC Plus has evolved into one of Egypt's leading consulting firms. The organisation has earned a reputation for providing strategic communications counsel and delivering high-level impact campaigns for clients including Dell, Sony and Toyota.
When talking to our clients we always pitched that we needed to strategise the role of PR as a lead function. However, in order to do so, we had to enhance our own capacity, knowledge and global understanding of the latest trends. Obtaining the right accreditation and affiliating with organisations who help us do so distinguishes us as consultants.
We are thrilled to welcome CC Plus as a Corporate Affiliate of the CIPR. We launched the Corporate Affiliate scheme at the beginning of the year following extensive feedback from members and the fact that interest now transcends our borders is testament to the quality of service we continue to deliver. I look forward to supporting Lamia and the CC Plus team with their professional development in 2017 and beyond.
Available to teams of 10 or more, Corporate Affiliates membership grants agency and in-house teams access to a range of benefits including enhanced professional and CPD support through dedicated relationship management and bespoke training courses.
