About Us
BondPR Worldwide is an international PR agency with a difference.

We enable our clients to achieve global PR reach without incurring the costs associated with engaging global PR agencies. With a team of over 100 highly experienced PR practitioners operating around the world, combined with our ‘lightweight’ organisational structure and highly flexible operational agility, we can design and implement a wide range of communications campaigns in single countries, regions, or multiple countries – sometimes at very short notice.

Our ‘hub and spoke’ structure offers clients a single point of contact. And a single billing unit. We then take care of the rest, including briefing local teams and arranging local payment. This streamlined approach saves our clients’ time and money.

The Team
Simon-Quarendon
Simon Quarendon – CEO

Simon Quarendon has extensive knowledge of international public relations. His thirty year career started in 1982 at Good Relations followed by time spent in several other well-known UK PR agencies. He set up his first PR agency, Words, etc in 1990 before joining Ogilvy PR worldwide as the Managing Director of its UK Technology Practice.

In this capacity, he managed its largest client, IBM, an account brief that comprised managing a ‘best of breed’ PR agency network in 25 countries. During this time, Simon was Chairman of the International Committee of the Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA), a professional body representing the UK’s PR agencies.

Simon left Ogilvy to become the Secretary General of the International Communications Consultants Organisation (ICCO). This umbrella trade body represents the national trade associations of over 1000 PR agencies in twenty nine countries around the world. Whilst at the ICCO, Simon organised two Global Summits and extended the PRCA’s Agency Management Certification scheme into several other countries. He also set up the first ICCO College, that offered online training courses to emerging countries.

Simon set up his second PR agency in 2002. The Lean Agency designed and built communications dashboards, that helped manage international PR campaigns. Clients included HP and Xerox, which used it to manage fifteen PR agencies in its Developing Markets Overseas (DMO) region.

Simon acquired Keene Communications in 2009. The agency, where he is still chairman, provides corporate communications, public affairs and strategic marketing services to a wide range of clients.
