PCI Media Impact is a non-profit with heart and soul, and I would say a lot of that is because of its present CEO, Sean Southey who is a dynamic, devoted and enlightened communicator. My first contact with Sean was at a cocktail party and when he heard about my new organisation, One Minute for Earth, he was very excited, supportive and encouraging, and invited me to contact him if I wanted to talk about ideas. So I did and Sean was extremely generous with his time and inspiration. PCI has since invited One Minute for Earth to be part of their #NatureForAll campaign for which we created a New Year's campaign called "Make Your New Year's Resolution a Nature Solution". Working with PCI is always inspiring and fun, and always a learning experience. What strikes me the most about PCI Media Impact is their ability to work collaboratively. They encourage it, promote it, nurture it. We are one global community and it is through working together that we will achieve all that we dream of.

I have worked with PCI Media Impact from 5th to 8th of this month in Dhaka in a workshop named "Entertainment Education and transmedia communication for development". Working with such an amazing team of people is a great experience for me. This workshop was mainly for the development of adolescents and the adolescent members of this workshop were given the most importance. It was a very positive view. I wish I could get the opportunity to work with them again. A lot of good wishes for PCI media impact.

We at Tinta Vital, a Mexican start-up company, began collaborating with PCI Media Impact only recently, as of January 2017, specifically for the production of a comic book for the #NatureForAll campaign. Although our collaboration is very new, from the very start we have gotten a clear sense of partnership with PCI Media Impact. This is translating for us into a team-like feeling, as if it were PCI's decided intention to also create success stories by bolstering the strengths and capacities of its partners. I bet that, if I were a small, well-meaning company in a remote community of a very poor country, partnering with PCI Media Impact would empower my company's efforts towards making the urgently needed social changes for a better world. - Beatriz Padilla, CEO

PCI Media Impact values story, believes in collaboration, and isn't afraid of taking on challenging subjects. Spending time working with their team on a campaign has been an incredible learning experience. I saw first hand how much passion they have for stories that can cultivate positive change in the world. What shined the most was the teams openness. They rarely say "no", and are committed to making sure everyone who is a part of a project contributes and has their voice reflected in a final product. And, those products address difficult and complicated subjects. The lessons I have learned from the team will continue to shape me as a person. They are a special group to work with.

PCI Media Impact operates as a team of dedicated, passionate individuals who make a concerted effort to effect tangible change in the world. I interned with PCI for three months, primarily with the Environment Programs department, and can personally attest to its outreach capacity. The projects implemented by PCI are unique in their ability to captivate audiences through creative storytelling. They create real, visible behavior changes and lead to positive impacts for a variety of causes across the globe. I have been fortunate enough to experience this first-hand, and am proud to have been part of this incredible team of people.

We had the opportunity to meet PCI's Executive Director, Sean Southey, this last year and directly observe his, and his team's, passion and commitment to their work. It was impressive and inspiring and to see their level of expertise in creating and implementing a complete branding brand package for the IUCN's Nature For All program. Cheers to PCI Media Impact, and all that they do to make the world a better place through their unique nonprofit-niche.

You can measure the importance of PCI Media Impact's work by their success stories. Volunteering with them, I have heard and seen numerous examples of stories in which important and complicated ideas were communicated effectively and in new ways. By creating stories they are educating, informing, and changing the conversation for people around the world.

PCI does amazing work, using entertainment and media in this incredibly useful way to actually impact lives and communities around the world. The level of detail and care that the staff have towards the project is truly admirable. I loved my time interning at the office, I got to feel that I was doing real work. I worked on the ISurvivedEbola campaign, and I know that the videos that PCI made and the impact that they had on those African communities was immeasurably substantial.
