What We Do

Government Relations

We are successful in working with government at all levels including arranging meetings, providing in depth analysis of issues, preparing grants, getting legislation enacted and securing appropriations.  We develop customized programs specific to the client’s needs.

Crisis Response Planning and Implementation

We are experienced in all aspects of crisis response, from pre-crisis planning to the on-the-spot implementation.  We work to ensure that clients are prepared to respond proactively in the event of a crisis.  We serve on the front-lines of crisis communication on behalf of clients who need assistance with media relations.

We are ready to assist with audience and issue analysis, planning for community meetings, policy development of risk and crisis communications as well as development of social responsibility programs.  We also prepare reader-friendly communication materials to culturally diverse audiences.

Risk Communication and Crisis Media Training

We specialize in the development of customized training in the principles and practice of risk and crisis communication.  Our training programs include real-life case studies, hands-on practice, videotaping of participants, and discussions of risk perception, community outrage and outreach strategies.  We offer courses in Risk and Crisis Communication, First Contact Communication and Media Training.  Each training is customized to fit our client’s specific communication needs.

Public Involvement & Community Outreach

We work with our clients to develop a community outreach plan that is specific to the company’s needs.  The outreach plan incorporates what can be done at the local, state, national and international levels and includes a list of local contacts, community events, suggested advertising, supporting brochures and specific community information.
