MEAComS Love Wins Newsletter: Sharing our Aspirations for 2023 February 2023
A very happy belated new year to you and your teams. February is all about love and it manifests itself in everything we do at MEAComS. And it’s with love that we present to you another edition of the MEAComS newsletter.
The biggest news we must share with you all is MEAComS’ 14th anniversary and a move to our new office located in Downtown Cairo! We started this agency for the love of public relations and to empowering women in this field. It’s heartening to know that we have achieved huge successes in both these areas as we further our heritage to value and enjoy in the present, and to preserve and pass on to future generations.
Our newsletter also discusses new projects in public relations that we’ve undertaken, the fruitful visit of Edelman UAE’s Managing Director and Head of Regional Development Seth Hand to our office, updates on current initiatives and team bonding exercises and most importantly, our passion to empower women pulling us towards women-led Arts and Culture experiences.
We sincerly hope this newsletter keeps you informed about the work we’re doing and the impact it’s having in our community.
Thanks for your continued support and interest in MEAComS. Enjor our newsletter!
Cash and In-Kind Contributions during Covid-19 Crisis in Egypt June 2020
We are glad to share our first insightful analysis report that tackles sectors /companies that made contribution during COVID 19 in Egypt.
We mapped out companies that announced their CSR contribution from March till May 2020 and identified the main areas of contribution for those companies and who are the top contributors per sector.
In addition, the report includes the main recipients of financial contribution during the same period.
The methodology used was based on tracking the news published in top 7 niche online media outlets (Enterprise, Youm7, Al Masry Al Youm, Sada El Balad, AlAhram Gate, Al Mal, Al Bawabh) in addition to Social media campaigns during the same period.
COVID-19…No Fear: #StayHome #StayLives April 2020
Happy Spring and Happy May finally! Ramadan Mubarak to everyone and we hope you, your teams and families are keeping well as we all embrace the changes occurring in our communities and around the world.
Here at MEAComS, we believe our clients need us now more than ever to be a voice of reason and an advisor. We have all become accurately aware that the impact of Covid-19 will continue to be a reality for us over the next few months. While the bright side is that this pandemic gives us the opportunity to reconsider everything, we totally believe that we should be positive & safe.
Speaking of our work, we are ecstatic to share our lovely milestones with Majid Al Futtaim, Netpreneur, BASF, Abu Dhabi Festival, Xiaomi, and CAFU.

MEAComS goes from continent to continent October 2019
Our journey from Africa to Asia is one of learning though personal and professional development, and new experiences bringing joy beyond imagination. The many adventures of MEAComS bless me with opportunities to share so many experiences; like the time spent in Vietnam, which brought challenges and plenty of fun. I also recall Ethiopia, as MEAComS took part in Edelman’s Africa affiliate summit 2019. All bring more learnings, experience and adventure to our business. On top of this, MEAComS has a new digital arm, called “TheGingerFirm”.
Our clients’ activities continue non-stop. Earlier this year with Nissan Egypt, as a top local market performer in five years; Xioami, which launched four new phones; Gilead Sciences launching its new awareness campaign; GSK commemorating the Voltaren Emulgel semi-solid production line; and Juniper Network’s CEO stressing the importance of Digital Transformation Projects in Egypt.

MEAComS Turns 10 January 2019
It is our 10th Anniversary!
As I am writing this letter, I cannot quite believe that it has been ten years since launching MEAComS. In April 2008, I was discussing with my friend the idea of establishing my own business and one thing led to another and we began brainstorming business names. Ever since that moment, I knew deep down that my goal was to start my own business and I worked very hard to realize my dream.
But dreaming is not enough. What differentiates MEAComS from other agencies is our understanding our local, regional and global clients and providing them with strategic, integrated communications and effective implementation to support our clients short and long-term business goals.
2017: Year of Awards
That is how we call it. All the way from South Africa to Dubai, MEAComS won the African Excellence Award for the category of “External Publication” and we were shortlisted at the Middle East Public Relations Awards (MEPRA) for the category of Social Responsibility & Environmental PR for the Shell Technology Leadership 2016 (STLC) conference. Also in this digested issue, we will take you in a surreal journey to the unique places we have visited, our yummy cheese cake celebrations, and the great work we are proud to have achieved with our clients in 2017.
It is this time we reach out to thank our clients for the partnership and show our gratitude to the growing opportunities that pave our way.
Looking forward to much bigger achievements in 2018, with a bigger family and a client’s portfolio!
Our issue # 14: is all about #Travel and #Explore. Fresh from our win at the African Excellence Award for the Best Corporate Video and Film and attending the ceremony in South Africa, 2016 has been all about exploring new ideas and places.
Following great advice from friends, this newsletter details the ins and outs of London and how spoiled one can be in the city of double decker buses and shopping! London is the city that embraces you with warm hugs and spoils you with splendid sights and amazing food.

The highlight of the trip was getting to visit teams in Edelman UK and finally putting faces to names!
