In addition to my work for Frontier Marketeer, I was co-owner and founder of Young Guns Media, a full service communications agency operating from Yangon, Myanmar. Young Guns Media currently employs 5 people and is specialized in (I)NGO, non-profit and CSR communications.
With increased calls for value for money, and a more critical review of their projects, non-profit organisations operating in Myanmar need to increase transparency and accountability, showing clear end results to beneficiaries, donors and tax payers. This trend calls for a higher visibility of projects and clear communication on what they do and what they achieve. CSR programmes of large companies face similar communication needs. Without a thorough Visibility & Communications Plan and solid execution, the benefits of these programmes to Myanmar society remain largely unknown.
Young Guns Media was founded to help INGOs, international organisations, foundations, and CSR-minded companies communicate their contribution to the development of transitional Myanmar. We bring an exiting mix to the table: founders with international experience at agencies and in the media sector, a creative team of talented locals, and deep knowledge of the political, historical and cultural context. Young Guns can ensure a good fit with Myanmar culture, customs and traditions, while delivering international quality output and addressing potential risks. and sensitivities.
