What’s Next

We at Ruder Finn are focused on helping companies and leaders reinvent and inspire positive change. We encourage an ecosystem that addresses real unmet needs. We believe in communications that amplify behaviors to transform how we live and work.


We believe achieving excellence today is intrinsically connected to pursuing what’s next.

For our clients, what’s next means anticipating your every need today, while always reaching for a bolder future.

For our people, what's next means always challenging our thinking, knowing there's no limit to what we can achieve.

For our industry, what's next means staying ahead of today's innovation, while being the first to pursue tomorrow's.

What We Do

Every vision starts with a story. We help uncover and shape the stories that bring your vision to life. We apply critical insight to make sure your story resonates with your audience and achieves the desired response. We create stand-out content – from compelling narrative to electrifying design and video – to make sure your story is read, seen and heard. We continually build and evolve your story as you move from now to what’s next.

We build meaningful connections with the people that matter. We carefully map stakeholders – from media, influencers and shapers, to customers and partners, to employees and general public – to identify the right channels and voices to carry your story. We frame and spark valuable conversations through traditional and social media channels. We construct powerful brand experiences – from digital engagements to live events – that emotionally and intellectually connect to who you are and who you will become.

You can never completely control what’s next. But we monitor, manage and measure your story to help ensure that it influences the people you want, in the way that you want. We manage media channels, from owned to earned to paid, to make sure your story stays true to your vision. We employ sophisticated SEO and SEM to optimize the influence your story has on the people that matter. We proactively manage potential issues to keep your brand resilient for whatever comes next.
