MELISSA WALKER

Born into a Scottish-Peruvian family in Germany, Melissa has always been passionate about languages, words and the craft of writing.

While studying English Literature in Scotland, she also had the opportunity to pursue another passion of hers: philosophy. And while it’s fun to muse about brains in vats, she believes that philosophy can also be a powerful ally. For Melissa, PR is a way to communicate ideas and thus acts as a vehicle for philosophy. It has the power to inspire change, to shake up our perception of reality – and may even make us question our most firmly held beliefs. Melissa is convinced that her background in humanities is a great advantage in the “cold” corporate world. She received the EUPRERA Master Thesis Award for Excellence for her master’s thesis on the convergence of PR and public diplomacy in a Scottish communications campaign.

The designer keeps rediscovering her love for design in many different areas, whether it be interior design, fashion, minimalism or typography.

LUNA KILIAN

Luna was born in Siberia, but now calls Frankfurt her home. In love with the German language, she graduated with a degree in German studies – in spite of all the sceptics.

In fact, she loves it so much that she has been known to smile to herself while writing. Nowadays, Luna is part of the content unit of HIVE Studios at Adel & Link, where she takes on a variety of text forms on any topic – whether it’s digital or pen on paper.

CHARLOTTE VON SPEE

Having been connected to Frankfurt since her university days, Charlotte returned to her favourite city on the Main as a commuter.

With stopovers in Vienna, London and Paderborn, the English Studies graduate discovered her enthusiasm for PR through internships. Although she has always had a weakness for cars and a knack for technical matters, her pit stop at Technology PR was pure coincidence. Several years of working in a B2B PR agency sparked her passion for strategic consulting for companies in the IT and logistics industries. But there is one thing that many big and small vehicle fans envy Charlotte for – her forklift driving licence. But as long as the forklift is parked, Charlotte’s everyday work is all about PR for a wide variety of tech companies. In her free time, she only needs one horsepower to be happy, because this belongs to equestrian sports – but only if Charlotte is not travelling the world equipped with her camera or discovering new cities on short trips.
