Blakeney has extended its international network with a strategic partnership with leading Brazil-based communications consultancy, Profile (

The partnership, following similar announcements with GSR and Vulcan Consulting, means Blakeney can now support clients on the ground across US, Europe, Asia Pacific and South America.

Profile is one of Brazil’s most successful communications consultancies. Founded in 2013 by Rodrigo V Cunha, it supports a broad range of clients and sectors, including organisations communicating their sustainability actions. Profile works with some of the region’s most progressive organisations, including TEDx Amazonia, Natura, Itau and Mercado Live.

Blakeney and Profile are already working together with the Tropical Forest Alliance (part of the World Economic Forum), to highlight solutions to restore and protect Brazil’s critical Cerrado region.

Michael Pooley, Blakeney Managing Partner said:

“As we began working together it was clear Blakeney and Profile shared the same view that communication is an incredibly powerful tool in the global fight against climate change.

“As we build our new climate communications offer, Blakeney Impact, our partnership will be incredibly helpful in supporting clients in a region that long been a focal point for action on climate and nature.

“More broadly, our partnership with Profile will provide all of Blakeney’s client partners unparalleled understanding and on-the-ground relationships in a key strategic region.”

Rodrigo V Cunha, Profile CEO, said:

"We are very excited about this partnership with Blakeney, an agency that has a presence on other continents and is as committed to climate action as we are.

“The first project sets the tone for collaboration between two agencies with similar profiles and backgrounds. The kind of expertise and track record we have in sustainability is still rare and this connection is strategic so that our projects can have an even greater reach."

The new partnership follows the recent launch of Blakeney Impact, Blakeney’s climate communications team that supports organisations, companies and individuals committed to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals and having a positive impact on the planet and society.
