XENOPHON INFLUENCES OPINIONS AND ACTIONS
Xenophon is at the top of PR firms in DC and the U.S. and we are widely acclaimed as a pioneer in advanced public communications. We create integrated campaigns, but believe that influencing professional media is crucial because credible stories drive digital content and social audiences. We work with some of the world’s best known companies, associations, industries and governments and are especially skilled in aviation & aerospace, transportation, energy, financial services and technology.
Xenophon executes precision campaigns at the local, state and national levels by targeting key audiences and surrounding them with our client’s stories and narrative. We identify the most influential journalists, educate their sources and target the social media mavens who move opinions and get attention. Sometimes we do this by pitching an irresistible news story or cutting a short, compelling, video to amuse and educate. We build social audiences based on relevance not to just get a high “follower” or “like” count filled with bots and unrelated audiences.
Washington DC is more than just a city or media market, it is the issues & reputation capital of the world. No where does the light of public attention shine brighter than here, because issues and communications influence key audiences across the nation and worldwide. DC has one of the highest concentrations of journalists of any city and has emerged as a key location for internet news.

THE PR INDUSTRY SURE LIKES US
The Public Relations Global Network is worldwide and they recently awarded Xenophon their 2017 Public Affairs Campaign of the Year, not bad considering we also won the PRGN 2015 Campaign of the Year…and the 2014 and 2011 Public Affairs Campaigns of the Year. We didn’t win in 2013 and 2016, but we were nominated and, like Meryl Streep, you can’t win every year. At this year’s award ceremony in Kyoto, Japan, Xenophon also received PRGN’s Silver Medal for Communications with Millennials.
And we’ve won tons of other accolades, including the Public Relation Society’s Silver Anvil Award for the top Public Affairs Campaign of the Year… twice… and the Thoth Award “Best of Show…. and an award from PR NEWS for Crisis Management…. Well, you get the idea.
Oh, we almost forgot. Xenophon’s digital team wanted you to know we won PRGN’s 2016 Gold Medal for Digital & Social Communications.
