Oliva Global is a San Francisco-based consultancy committed to helping executives and enterprises of all types enhance their brand and reputation—cost-effectively—by aligning global business strategy and public relations initiatives, along with attention to corporate social responsibility.
Business strategy and communications aligned to highlight societal value: this approach creates new opportunities and helps address threats… or what we call a virtuous cycle for global brands.
Oliva Global got its start with the economic development and public affairs background of its founder, Paul Oliva, and his work with corporations, government agencies and community groups. After helping drive discussion of economic development issues at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, from 2003 through 2005, Oliva discerned a strong and growing need to help executives and their enterprises manage top-level communications and effectively engage in global policy debates. For smaller or startup enterprises, Oliva sees the need to build brand, communications and business strategies that effectively transcend borders and connect with key influencers, partners and customers across markets.
Oliva Global assembles an appropriate team of specialists and partner companies to deliver the results for each project.
