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.
GO AHEAD!

I have been in contact with PCI Media Impact for approximately two and a half years now. Seeing the personal engagement and the empowerment of local communities by opening awareness for some of the big issues impacting them (the fight against Ebola is only one of many great projects, even if one of the most visible), is just second to none! Continue the great work and making an amazing (media) impact!

Sometimes it only takes one powerful story to inspire and motivate us towards change. PCI Media tackles pressing issues through the power of storytelling. Its entertainment-education methods give individuals and communities a voice to address existing attitudes and behaviors in order to promote positive social change. The valuable work that PCI Media, Sean Southey and his team contribute to the world offers us hope and peace; a great organization that cares about people and the environment.

When I first learned about PCI Media Impact's agenda I was amazed a group of people would get together to do this. Such a great idea using stories to save lives! Their portfolio has so much variety in terms of the issues they approach and the different media they use. I hope they continue to make more exciting projects all over the world.
