Our agency recently attended The Worldcom Public Relations Group’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) in the vibrant heart of Tokyo. This year’s gathering was a perfect blend of nostalgia and innovation, marking our return to the city where our journey with Worldcom began in 1999.

As Global Board Chair and a partner celebrating 25 years in Worldcom, I can confidently attribute our agency’s growth and staying power to the professional and business development opportunities that our global partnership offers. Tokyo was a time to reaffirm our commitment to innovation, excellence, and collective success.

The AGM’s agenda was packed with sessions that highlighted Worldcom’s strategic direction and provided actionable insights for our partners. Keynote speakers delivered critical perspectives on digital transformation and the connected industry, emphasizing the importance of building digital vitality. Our Asia Pacific partners discussed regional business climates, communication challenges and opportunities. Presentations and discussions on cross-cultural communication provided valuable perspectives for our global partners. Award-winning campaigns demonstrated the power of cultural innovation, and interactive sessions offered practical insights on managing intercultural communication, vital for our global operations.

The Pollack Group is steadfast in leveraging Worldcom’s power to build more vital business bridges worldwide. We eagerly anticipate exploring new opportunities and tackling challenges as a global family. Together, we are not just navigating the future rather actively shaping it—a future we are all a part of.
