Our approach to issues management, therefore, mirrors
that of a political campaign.
Every organisation faces a range of problems that can
escalate into a public crisis at any time. Management
must be on constant alert and prepared to respond to
any and all the serious issues that could, under the
glare of public and media scrutiny, damage corporate,
product or personal reputations.
We work alongside management when customers, consumers,
employees, investors, stakeholders, regulators and governmental
bodies are all demanding immediate answers and action.
We can do so at any time. Our experience in this specialized
field extends from product failure to international
conferences debates, from fraud and malfeasance to strikes
and litigation, from difficult restructuring to site
closings in the face of militant opposition, from bank
crisis to campaigns by activist groups and boycotts.
A brand is often is the most valuable asset a company
owns. We use a methodology that combines academic insight
with real-world experience across numerous industries
and product categories.
