Communicating in good times and bad


We can:

  • Communicate on your behalf, and train you to communicate for yourself.
  • Defend you in a crisis, and train you and your people to do the same.
  • Help you test and exercise your crisis management and emergency response plans, or train you to do this for yourself.  (We can also help you prepare your plans from scratch.)

Objectivity is key to everything we do.  Without a ruthless approach to objectivity, it is impossible to communicate properly.

We have many years of experience in PR, public affairs, crisis management; emergency response planning, testing and exercising - and in passing on this expertise to our clients.

We have been helping individuals and businesses, governments and non-profits for over 30 years.
