Many see a crisis in leadership. We think it's a crisis in communication. It's About Time we embrace the latest trends and platforms.
In any sort of production, there is an unobtainable triangle. It is made up of 3 fundamental elements: Time, Cost and Quality.
Why unobtainable? Because you can only prioritize 2 of these at a time. For example: you want high quality and low cost? Well, then it will take a lot of time. Conversely, if you want cheap and fast, quality will take a serious hit.
We know that in this day and age everything is About Time, so we are here to guarantee the timeliness element of the triangle.
It's up to you to choose the other 1.
So let's talk YOU; your aspirations to be part of the European and national story. You strive to do good and be a force multiplier in your quest to impact change, but you're painfully aware of today's challenges towards effective communication.
You appreciate that in today's world, one with a diminished tolerance to frustration and a need for instant gratification, the competition for people's attention has never been higher. You recognize that innovation is a basic requirement for succesful communication.
We strive to communicate Europe in a visually engaging, empathic and relatable way. Our goal? To give everyone a better understanding of an otherwise complex European political system and, above all, to promote the leaders of today and tomorrow.
At its core, About Time MMC is a start-up which offers innovative communication services focusing on European political issues and how they affect people's lives at the national and local level.
The best way to balance facts with emotions.
Once formed, impressions are remarkably perseverant. Providing people with accurate information doesn't seem to overcome their confirmation bias. Appealing to emotions may indeed work better, but is inconsistent with promoting fact driven communication. Let's strive for balance, by telling stories anchored in fact, using empathy and the power of emotions.
We provide a rich array of services. Take stakeholder outreach, where we find constituents with emotional stories worth sharing that perfectly tie into and strenghten your communication priorities. Or new concepts built from the ground up, with a proven track record for engaging the youth, such as gaming.
We are a young team with backgrounds in politics, communication, media production, cognitive psychology and information technology, with a passion for world affairs and how it all intertwines.
