Crisis management services

We provide the expertise and advice to ensure you emerge from the crisis in the best possible position, crafting a clear and concise response that will mitigate any potential loss or damage and steer you back to business as usual.
Pre-emptive crisis planning
We help you prepare for potential crises by conducting an audit of your business, its people, company materials and channels.

This risk assessment helps us create a thorough communication plan, ensuring that any areas of concern are identified and you can hit the ground running in case trouble strikes.

Crisis response
When a crisis occurs, we can provide immediate strategic support, from message development to media relations and stakeholder communication.

We’re also able to provide media training to develop the skills and strategies required to navigate challenging conversations with the media while maintaining a positive public image.

Internal reputation management
Employees are a company’s first line of defence as they act as ambassadors to the outside world.

Through an internal communications strategy, we’ll promote transparency and open dialogue to reduce panic and misinformation as well as maintain staff morale. This strategy ensures that your team feels informed, valued, positive and ready to support your company through the crisis.

Post-crisis analysis
After each crisis, we’ll always evaluate the effectiveness of the communication strategy and make necessary adjustments and recovery plans, ensuring you’re better prepared for future challenges.

FAQs

An organisation needs crisis management PR whenever its reputation is threatened. This could be due to various reasons such as legal issues, negative media coverage, social media backlash, product failures or any other event that could harm the organisation’s standing in the public eye.

Experience. We can’t stress this enough. A defensive or opaque response can lead to serious reputational damage, which can completely ruin your ability to conduct businesses as usual. 

An experienced PR agency will know exactly the right tone to take, ensuring the consistency and transparency needed to steer you towards repetitional recovery.

We also have connections with publications and journalists, ensuring that your company gets a fair hearing and that all the facts are clearly understood by those who matter.

Success is gauged by several factors, including the preservation of your reputation, the level of trust among your stakeholders and the speed at which normal operations can resume.
