"Will you watch the World Cup this year?" is probably the question that has been heard most often in recent weeks, at least in terms of sentiment. In Germany, the answer to that question may have changed for many since the national team's recent elimination.
Us ORCAs welcomed Marie as an intern for half a year. During this time, she also wrote the following opinion piece. We would like to take this opportunity to thank her again for her support and this exciting article. When working with clients, it is not uncommon for us to explain what exactly communication work is and how different mechanisms are connected - at least that is what my colleagues told me. At the time, I was not only new to ORCA van Loon Communications but also a newcomer to the communication industry. I had spent the last few years as a cultural scientist and research assistant.

And is the customer always king, or is a gentle nudge in the right direction the duty of good consultants? A critical self-analysis.

Why communicators should pay more attention to their voice. We use it constantly, every day and sometimes even while we are asleep. We start using it shortly after birth as a reflex. If we didn’t have it, we would be deprived of one of our most important means of expression: our voice.
The combination and the impact of different communication measures - these are the two key aspects of our daily work. However, the conditions, challenges and purposes can differ greatly.
