iQ 360 founder and CEO, Lori Teranishi, joined PRWeek’s editorial director Steve Barrett and executive editor Frank Washkuch on The PR Week podcast, PRWeek’s weekly round-up of everything that matters in the world of PR and communications.
Lori discussed the Hawaiian and Asian values that have shaped business and culture in Hawaii. She also offered a new perspective on communications firms and their evolving roles in the business world.
“Because the big agencies don’t have a strong presence in Hawaii and the local business community here doesn’t have rigid notions about what a communications firm can and can’t do, we’ve really taken the license to innovate here and do the work that we think matters,” Lori explained. “We take a broader scale view of communications and try to fix problems in ways that contribute to Hawaii achieving a better future and providing leadership, frankly, to the world.”
