With the mind of an advocate, we tell the story of our clients across multiple platforms. The result? Engagement!

We offer clients Consumer Insights, Business Intelligence, Trend Watching Services and Competition Monitoring and fuse these elements into communications for clients.

Sometimes, the change occurs at both levels. We nevertheless find the balance between our radical approach and the need to respect our client’s culture.

We are not prisoners to any business tradition or conscripts to corporate dogmas. The truth we are unafraid to tell our clients is, we are unconventional!

Our stories are compelling. With them, we change The Rules Of Engagement to help deliver value to our clients.

Every wakefulness, we are driven by the conventions we can challenge and the opportunity to deliver value to our clients with audacious thinking.

Our story telling business traverses the realm of 'Word Of Mouth' to the realm of 'Word Of Mouse'.

We are 'Rebels' to tradition and conventions. We pose 'Why Not' to every 'Why'. We believe No Mission Is Impossible.

Working with us involves an undertaking to change the way your business sees the world and the way the world sees your business.

Project Description

Positioning the Port Harcourt Carnival (CARNIRIV 2012) as a Recognisable and Reckonable Global Brand

Dates of Project

December, 2012

Client Contact

Client Need/ Objective

Though a recognized cultural brand, Client identified a need for a more strategic PR communication in order to maximise the opportunities the carnival brings.

CRN Insight/ Innovation

Play-up Port Harcourt`s centenary anniversary to highlight the city`s rich heritage.

Beginning from the Flag-off Media Conference, CRN facilitated the coverage of the eight-day CARNIRIV, and some of the activities made Front Pages in leading national newspapers including The Punch.

CRN Response/ Deliverables

To deliver on the campaign objective and ensure clear messaging, CRN use a multilayer story mining approach to react each key target segment with a specific message: Business, Tourism, Social Security, Economy. 

The 2012 edition of the carnival achieved the highest level of mobilisation since its inception.


This resulted in a boost in local businesses during and even after the carnival.

The increased Sov of the CARNIRIV brand also attracted more sponsorship from corporate organisations.
