Welcome to the Ampersand Blog
The peeps at Kel & Partners have a lot to say. After all we are public relations and social media zealots who thrive on sharing interesting news and great stories with the public. The Ampersand Blog is really the voice of our Peeps – the kick-ass team of people that work at K&P. Whether it’s a story about the way PR works NOW, the social media universe, our families, beloved pets or quirky travel experiences, you’ll find it all right here. You may laugh, you may cry, but the best part is you’ll leave feeling “wicked smaht” as we like to say here in Boston.

Get to Know Kel & Partners Santa Monica
Did you hear? Kel & Partners has gone bi-coastal, opening an office in Santa Monica, CA. And guess what? I’m here! In typical K&P fashion, our office is not in some stuffy, cubicle-filled space with grey walls and no windows. Instead, K&P’s West Coast team has taken up residence at Cross Campus, an engine of creativity and innovation.
Cross Campus is a shared, collaborative space. The co-working space is home to over 40 companies from all over the world, and we are so excited to be in such a buzzing and inspiring office space. Not to mention comfortable! There are tables & desks, sure, but there are also couches to work on and plushy chairs to rest in. And you better believe that during the World Cup games, everyone squeezed onto the couches to watch the soccer games projected on a screen over the Cross Campus stage.
At Cross Campus, we’re always meeting new people, learning about what their jobs are, and watching them conduct business in new ways. There are tech companies, SEO companies, small businesses – you name it, and it probably has a presence at CC.
And, CC welcomed K&P with open arms. We had an orientation, a new-members dinner, and even got to introduce ourselves in front of the whole community after a Friday-afternoon free lunch. I mean, what’s better than free food? Cross Campus also hosted this year’s Silicon Beach Fest, and CC members were given free access.
We couldn’t be happier with our new location and that the K&P West Coast is off and running. Keep an eye out on Kel & Partners’ Instagram for some photos of our “SoCal” adventures.
Have you ever worked in a collaborative or shared office space with other companies?
