INTERNATIONAL: Impact Asia and BBC veteran link up for crisis offer

HONG KONG: Asian PR shop Impact Asia is partnering with former BBC veteran Jill Thomas to offer media and crisis training for corporate clients in Asia.

The move sees Impact MD Susan Field join forces with UK production house Bruton Productions, of which Thomas is managing director.

The resulting company, Impact Productions, will build on Bruton's existing service, offering media and crisis training and crisis representation.

'We want to offer an integrated package of services (and) I'm very pleased we are adding another string to our bow,' Field said.

Thomas and Field already work together on accounts for the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts.

Field says the agreement will see Thomas dividing her time between London and Hong Kong, depending on the dictates of the market.
