k.u.k. kommunikation –
managed by its owners and active all over Europe

We are the 'missing link'. The joint that ensures successful communication between companies and the media, but also increasingly frequently between companies and their customers.

Our formula for success:
The right strategy.

We have been providing consultancy for our clients in Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland on effective communications strategies since 1998, and in so doing we focus both on classical print media and on all the tools of the social Web. The crucial question is always which strategy is the one most likely to succeed. We act as as an external press office for many of our clients in the entire German and French speaking area.


Our method:
Sustainable and persuasive.

We see communication as an increasingly important responsibility of companies and their brands. That is why k.u.k. strategies and campaigns are tailored to perfectly suit our clients; they are designed and executed in a manner that is sustainable and contextually persuasive. Our concepts are always based on thorough research and analysis of the market and the competitors.

Regardless of whether it is classical public relations or a social media campaign – the crucial thing for us is the intelligent deployment of resources and the impact this generates ... 

advertise less,
think more.


Our media contacts:
Personal and long-term.

For us, PR is primarily about building relationships. We build long-term relationships with journalist and bloggers. And that's why we succeed in obtaining effective placements for our clients. Our topics are beauty, food and lifestyle. Our media contacts in Switzerland are just as successful, personal and wide-spread as they are in Austria and Germany.

Our team: Multidisciplinary 
and multilingual.

Both of the managing proprietors are postdoctoral scientists and scholars and have been working as media professionals for over 20 years. Our five-member team is multidisciplinary and multilingual: German, English, French, Polish and Danish.

5 creative minds –
with a predilection for communication

PR consultant and proprietor of k.u.k. kommunikation

Dr. Claudia Kübler learned PR from scratch – at the prestigious Frankfurt agency Leipziger + Partner. In addition to her doctorate, from 1996 to 1998, the historian developed the PR work for a marketing agency before founding k.u.k. kommunikation in 1998.

She may be Swabian in name and origin but at heart, she is French;– not least a pleasure for our Parisian business partners. She is very much at ease in articulating the spoken language and in putting it to paper. She advises clients in our westward neighbouring country and organises press events in Paris, Geneva and Lausanne. She was already addressing with the image of Germany in the French media in her doctoral thesis.

Thanks to her strong affinity to science and technology, not only is the agency always at the cutting edge with the latest technology and equipment, but k.u.k. kommunikation was also able to manage web portals early on and get into social media communication at a very early stage.

Dr. Claudia Kübler is married and has two daughters.

Later she worked at Südwest Presse (Southwest press) and Frankfurter Rundschau and as the press spokeswoman for the Stuttgart Kirchentag (Church Conference).

While her business partner specialised in western issues, she herself chose the east and earned her PhD in Warsaw on the democratisation of Poland – including a case study on the new media landscape.

Her everyday life at the agency consists of managing contacts and the acquisition of new business. Most of the time she is on the go – primarily in Switzerland, Austria and Poland.

The postdoctoral political scientist regularly gives lectures, runs workshops or takes on individual coaching assignments. For example, at the Protestant Academy Bad Boll, the AHK in Warsaw and at the universities in Chur (Switzerland), Pforzheim and Vaihingen.

Her latest project: establishing public relations work in Switzerland and then doing the same in the land of her ancestors – Austria.
