Ona Means She

Ona translates to “she” in Czech. Following a decade of working for and with agencies Ona’s Founder, Brittany Abdool, was fortunate enough to disconnect and recharge in Prague as she was experiencing the infamous agency burnout. Being met with incredible hospitality from locals and surrounded by beautiful ancient architecture that’s withstood some of the harshest elements of the world, it is here where she felt a burning desire to change the way agencies do business.

Agencies can be better for people – employees, clients, and communities.
