video - what we do
Strategic Communications Consultation
We offer advisory services to organizations seeking to improve their communications plans and protocols. We'll help you iron out your communications objectives and determine the best course toward meeting them.
Crisis Plan Development
Unfortunately, crisis communications plans can often be (1) less than adequate, (2) overly complex, or (3) non-existent. We're extremely proud of our plan template, which is the result of years of research, experience, and trial-and-error. We spoke to fellow experts in the field to make sure our template was both comprehensive and digestible.
When we endeavored to figure out how many people we have trained over the years, we realized there have been too many to count! From first responders to organizational leadership to college students, we've seen a lot of hands raised and have fine-tuned our training over the years. The result is a training curriculum second to none.
Online & Social Media Strategy
The online environment is constantly changing. The best thing communicators can do is understand that evolution so they can operate within it. Knowing how to navigate the new media environment means getting up to speed on today and having a plan for tomorrow. We can help.
From teleconference tabletops to full-scale events, we've exercised strategic communications for hundreds of scenarios. Our experience offers clients seasoned and streamlined exercise planning and management. We are your turnkey solution to crisis communications exercises.
Training, planning, and preparing are essential components to readiness. But when the crisis strikes, we can join your team to help you successfully weather the storm. We're alongside you within 24 hours of any response, no matter where you are in the country.
