Crisis Communications Training

Take Control. Protect Your Reputation

When crisis strikes, negative headlines have the power to destroy reputations. Get ahead of the negative news cycle, with our crisis communications training. We'll help your organisation put the tools, skills and processes in place to communicate with confidence and compassion when media or public pressure is at its most intense. Whether dealing with a crisis that has already hit, or preparing your staff to handle a crisis before it breaks, we'll guide you through every aspect of crisis management. From early risk assessment and reactive lines, to issuing a speedy statement, holding a press conference or utilising the 'right to reply', we'll help you understand what will contain a crisis and what could fuel the fire.

Our mainstream and social media experts have years of hands-on experience in killing negative stories and mitigating reputational fall out. So if your organisation finds itself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, we'll help ensure you emerge with your reputation intact.
