WE
DO
THINGS
DIFFERENTLY.

Bhava was founded on the idea of smart, good people doing exceptional work together. We’re an extension of our clients’ teams, united by aligned objectives.

WE’RE
CRAZY
ABOUT
THE DETAILS.

Not only do we genuinely understand a wide array of complex technologies, everyone on our team is obsessed with the detailed mechanics of where and how stories are told. We nurture strong relationships with media, influencers and analysts. And since Bhavans speak fluent sales and marketing, we fit easily into our clients’ organizations and connect communications efforts to business objectives.

By integrating the latest in social and digital platforms while continuing to innovate on proven PR and marketing methods, we engage key audiences to drive the conversations that matter and enrich each client‘s brand presence.

VALUES

INTEGRITY

Be honest, respectful and transparent.

PUT PEOPLE FIRST

Stop, collaborate and listen. Approach wins and failures with a team mentality and recognize that we’re stronger together.

FEARLESS CREATIVITY

Think and innovate without limits to what’s possible. Feel the fear. Do it anyway.

PLAYFULNESS

There’s no such thing as bad pizza. Even when it’s bad, it’s good. Find the pizza in everything you do.

PASSION FOR QUALITY

“Good enough” isn’t enough. Seek the wow factor in deliverables, counsel and personal interactions.
