Our History matterhorn pr logo icon

Matterhorn PR started shortly after David Howse and Bill Borger Jr. worked together on Bill’s $600,000 Calgary Handi-Bus fundraiser / Mount Everest Expedition of May 2011. This collaboration began in November of 2010 and saw Bill become the first-Canadian-ever (fifth-ever in the world) to have both swum the English Channel and to have climbed Mt. Everest.

Not only was over $500,000 raised for the Calgary Handi-Bus but together Bill and David created a blueprint for public relations management, strategies, and tactics. This blueprint has since been used for MANY of our clients.

The testimony to this venture is that Bill and David now share a strong friendship and regularly meet to discuss business strategies for Borger Group of Companies and for David Howse Marketing.

It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.

Testimonials

You don’t have to be the most famous to be front and center

Almost everyone has heard of Mount Everest but if a photo of Everest was in a random line-up of other mountain photos very few would be able to pick it out. Unlike Everest, The Matterhorn is easily the most recognizable mountain but it is only a small fraction the size of Everest. Sometimes you can’t compete head-on with number one and in those cases you need a good strategy to maximize what you do have.

Consider this photo. Why is the Mona Lisa the most famous painting in the world? It is small, most people are not affluent enough in art to tell you why it is so good and, if you stood next to it long enough you would hear more than one person say, “that’s it????” with a tone of disappointment.

Maybe for some things or people it is all about the story.
