FleishmanHillard Commits $5 Million in Pro Bono Work to Celebrate 70th Anniversary

Agency Commemorates Anniversary with Global Social Inclusion Initiative

ST. LOUIS, June 30, 2016 – 2016 marks FleishmanHillard’s (FH) 70th anniversary. To celebrate this milestone, the company announced that it is uniting colleagues across its global network to take action in their own way, toward a singular cause: social inclusion.

The company has set a goal to provide $2 million in pro bono services specifically related to social inclusion and is asking each office to select a project that will support the cause for people in their local communities during the 70th anniversary year. As a communications company, FH is well-suited to support this cause, with the experience to connect with, and raise awareness and support for, groups of individuals who may be excluded from opportunity or marginalized from society because of race, gender, economic standing or refugee status. This new initiative is in addition to the company’s existing pro bono work, which totaled $3.6 million in 2015.

“We asked our employees how they wanted to celebrate this important anniversary,” said John Saunders, president and CEO of FleishmanHillard. “The overwhelming response from across our global network was that our people wanted to get involved in local projects in their community where they could make a difference.”

Beginning in July, FleishmanHillard offices will identify organizations, initiatives or charities that champion social inclusion, putting employees’ time and talent to use in a way that will be most impactful to their specific communities and the organizations. In addition, FH teams will help these groups tell their stories and amplify their message to advance their missions.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate our 70th year by leveraging the unique abilities and enthusiasm of our talented staff to make a difference in our communities,” said Lisa Moehlenkamp, chief of staff of FleishmanHillard.

To celebrate in London, FleishmanHillard Fishburn (FHF) will be working with Career Ready, a nationwide charity that seeks to improve access to the professional realm for 16- to 18-year-old students from lower-income homes. FHF will be the communications partner for their annual event for 1,700 students, and will directly support students through mentoring and internships.

FleishmanHillard Celebrates Top Cannes Health Lions Honor for Philips Breathless Choir Campaign

June 18, 2016

CANNES, June 18, 2016 –  FleishmanHillard (as a part of OneVoice Connect, a consortium of Omnicom agencies) netted two Silver Lions for the agency’s contribution to the Philips Breathless Choir campaign at this year’s Lions Health competition at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The campaign won the Grand Prix for Pharma; Silver Lions in the Pharma – Devices & Diagnostics and Pharma – Corporate Image & Communications categories; a Bronze Lion for Pharma – Corporate Image & Communication; and two Gold Lions for Health and Wellness – Corporate Image & Communication. FleishmanHillard’s work was recognized in the Pharma – Devices & Diagnostics and Pharma – Corporate Image & Communication categories.

Breathless Choir was in integrated campaign led by Ogilvy & Mather. The two Lions are the first win at Lions Health for FleishmanHillard. Now in its third year, Lions Health celebrates marketing and advertising campaigns in the healthcare sector that harness creativity to truly change people’s lives.

The Philips Breathless Choir campaign demonstrated that Philips is a company dedicated to changing people’s lives. With the help of world-renowned choirmaster Gareth Malone and the Philips Simply Go Mini Oxygen Concentrator, 18 people with breathing conditions – for whom every breath is a struggle – were taught to sing. After five days of rehearsals, they performed at the Apollo Theater in New York City. The incredibly moving campaign launched on World COPD Day, and gained more than 15 million views across platforms, had a 20% share rate, and earned 650M+ media impressions.

“The Philips Breathless Choir was part of a campaign to change perception of the Philips brand, shifting from its traditional image as an electronics company, to its present day status as a healthtech organization that improves lives through meaningful innovations.  The choir is a great example of meaningful innovation that can actually improve people’s lives.  The PR program ensured that the Choir had visibility and awareness not just in the US where it was launched on World COPD Day but around the world,” said Eva Barrett, global head of Brand Marketing Communications at Philips.

Cannes Lions is the world’s biggest annual awards show and festival for the creative communications industry.
