Urvi Patel

Senior Account Supervisor

Urvi brings more than a global perspective to her work at Werth, she brings tangible global experience.

As a former communications advisor to the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Washington, D.C., she deftly navigated cultures and audiences – from diplomats and ambassadors to policymakers and think tanks – to effectively communicate key initiatives. As a communication manager with Teach for America, she articulated the need of educational equality in America’s poverty-stricken, low-income communities, and the complexity that comes with fulfilling that mission.

Urvi makes it her business to get to know real-world challenges at an uncommon level of depth. It’s this level of intimacy that fuels thoughtful recommendations on strategic communication, public affairs, thought leadership and speechwriting, and social media engagement that get results for those with whom she works.

Today her work history becomes increasingly more relevant to clients that are looking to navigate new and unchartered waters, or connect with diverse audiences whether online, overseas or even in their own backyard. In a world that is more accessible and highly engaged than ever before, Urvi’s global mindset has her one step ahead of the crowd.

Getting to know Urvi:

What’s your favorite thing about working at Werth?
That I get to do challenging, thought-provoking work daily. Public relations is a fast-paced, ever-evolving environment that brings unique opportunities and challenges, and I enjoy that I get to collaborate with experienced colleagues to drive impactful solutions for our clients.
What’s the greatest/best compliment you’ve received?
Being told that I have made the transition to motherhood effortlessly and, even more so, the transition to being a working mom seamlessly. To know that my family, friends and colleagues see me as balanced and present in everything – even when I may feel pulled in many directions – impacts me deeply and gives me great confidence.
Best advice you’ve given:
I often like to share this Hindu teaching that says – "There are hundreds of paths up the mountain, all leading in the same direction, so it doesn’t matter which path you take. The only one wasting time is the one who runs around and around the mountain, telling everyone that his or her path is wrong."
If you had to live on a desert island what would you miss most?
Winter. It’s my favorite season and I would miss all the things that come with it, including the refreshing cold air, snow, skiing and mulled wine.
