FOR SUSTAINABLE COMMUNICATION
Who trusts us
We strive to create strong, sustainable structures and reject hectic activism. Our aim is to win the loyalty of our clients and then win it back time and time again by creating communications that target their audiences. For over ten years now we have been offering our clients a living world that they can shape tangibly. The fact that our clients remain loyal to us is our most resounding success.
When it comes to making complex things easy we are true B2B professionals.
Communication by professionals for professionals.
How we work
We master the complexity of the factors that influence and effect. We oversee and control the internal and external fields of activity in your presence from every conceivable angle. We take this approach, because only integrated corporate communication has the capacity to transform communication into tangible success.
Much like master musicians, our command over our instruments makes us specialists in our field. As an agency, our core competence lies in orchestrating our skills perfectly. We offer strategic advice, we design, we write, we support and we analyse. And we use advanced technologies and tools to do so. If we see fit, we also draw on our network of expert freelancers. So that we can concentrate on what is important: our journalists and, of course, the client.
You know your target audiences. We know how best to connect with them.
We view consulting as a holistic and transparent process. The process always starts with us listening hard and then asking intelligent questions afterwards.
We focus on the best practices in your market. We approach tasks in a structured manner and set priorities. Our approach is disciplined, both in terms of language, deadlines and budget.
We use language, structure and the vivid and playful functionality of the communications activities we undertake to create added value that is both aesthetic and emotional.
We are flexible and noticeably fast - both in our minds and in our behaviour. You will find us available any time you need us during the implementation phase.
FOR EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION
What we can do
As a PR agency, we are convinced that quality and trust determine the real value of a statement. This empowers you to reach your target audience, and not just by turning up the volume or rotating the knob to a higher frequency. Our feet remain planted firmly on the ground, without having our head in the clouds. We take time for details and aspire to produce information, and not hot air. For good reason. From experience.
How can we help you?
For a better quality of reach, contact and leads - especially in B2B.
FOR AUTHENTIC COMMUNICATION
Who we are
Public Footprint is a PR and social media agency for the digital age.
We help companies to make the digital transformation, and make the success of this transformation tangible – without placing ourselves in the middle.
We are one of the first agencies to specialise in IT companies with a B2B focus, and we have more than 20 years of experience. Kai Leonhardt and Thomas Schumacher founded the agency in 2006. They have been working together as a team since 1996. As the managers responsible at the agency they have important characteristics in common:
Persuasiveness, assertiveness and authenticity – three requirements for credible communication that people trust.
…has a degree in business informatics and has also trained as a banker. In the early 90s, he rather stumbled into a job in the IT department at the networking giant Novell, where he eventually rose to become Press Officer EMEA. In 1996, he moved to Bertelsmann and then started his own business servicing clients like Lycos and Bertelsmann Telemedia. Kai can draw on over 20 years’ experience in PR and social media for IT companies, in the role of client, service provider and interim manager.
His strengths lie in thinking outside the box, breaking down normalised structures, giving lectures and presentations and social media. He likes wine, cigars, France and good food, and when he is not beavering away on a PR project, you will find him at a poker table in Hamburg, or relaxing somewhere out on the water, casting out a fishing line.

… has a MA in journalism, a certificate as a yoga teacher and a coffee barista diploma from the Cologne Coffee Academy. At the agency, he is primarily responsible for strategic topics, introducing new tools and developing new business ideas. His focus lies in writing understandable texts: in his articles, he succeeds time and time again in rendering dry technical topics in such a way that even employees from the company the article is about can learn something new from them. In the complex dance of details, he always tries to see the big picture. His mantra is: “Consider everything that causes stress an exercise in serenity.”
This approach also helps outside the office, which he gets to enjoy in an 80-year-old house, with a doting wife, two very sweet daughters and Eddie the dog. In his spare time … or, rather, during his rare breaks from this everyday ‘madness’, he cooks, does DIY, gardens, comforts, doctors, sings, plays, tinkers, reads, clears up, goes for walks with the dog and can sometimes be seen riding his bike through the Bergen countryside without any apparent aim.
