ahead of the curve + plan and anticipate before a crisis hits

respond with confidence, swiftly, and accurately + be calm, resolute, and adapt

 
Companies and organizations spend years building their brand and establishing their reputation. Oftentimes, when a crisis hits, your reputation and brand can be ruined in an instant.

Most often when disaster strikes conventional management practices are unequipped to maintain stakeholder and employee confidence, and the pressure can negatively affect the operations of your organization.

We thrive in a high stakes environment and respond swiftly, thoughtfully and confidently on your behalf.

We start by developing a crisis management plan and understand that such a plan must be nimble and adaptable to a dynamic crisis environment.

After the immediate crisis has past, our team continues to monitor and modify messaging, and helps companies as they transition back to a normalcy.

Successful crisis management requires the recognition of four new realities:

  1. News tweets it doesn’t break. Today’s crisis news moves faster than ever, shortening the timeframe a company has to respond.
  2. Stakeholder expectations demand active leadership from companies facing crisis situations. So, to be successful at crisis management companies must do more, and do it quickly.
  3. Authentic communication and engagement are crucial. As businesses respond to crises, they must continue to meet the stakeholder expectations.
  4. Every crisis has a different arc, as does the resulting news coverage and social media conversations.
