Reputation Management/Corporate Social Responsibility
We build communications strategies with the implicit understanding that reputation management is a primary
building block for the success of any organization. The experience of our team includes both building and
protecting reputations. We have conducted social responsibility initiatives to proactively address issues
related to environmental, litigation and community concerns.
Strategic Media Relations
One well-placed story in a high-profile publication, a wire photo that communicates our message better
than a thousand words, semi-annual deskside briefings with long-lead editors or a block-and-tackle media
relations effort targeting relevant reporters - all have their place in our toolkit. We provide client
counsel on how to use media relations to accomplish your goals.
Message Development Training
The single key to building an effective media relations program is having spokespeople who are articulate,
knowledgeable and accessible. This process is easier said than done, as the best spokespeople are
professionals who have a list of core responsibilities that do not always include media relations.
Our media training process responds to the realities of these spokespeople by teaching the fundamentals of
effective and focused communications to all key audiences including media.

business strategy and bolster the reputation of a company and its management.
