Crisis communication is serious business. The future of your business, nonprofit, university or career depends on getting it right the first time because you don’t get a second chance. You need someone who has experience to guide you through the storm.
With more than 20 years of newsroom experience on our team, we’ve been on both sides of numerous crises. We know how journalists think, what they expect and how to provide them with timely, accurate information in a context to help you begin to recover your reputation, focus and future.
As a former communication director in the Iowa Governor’s Office, Eric Woolson has been through crisis drills and real-life situations on everything from nuclear power plant emergencies and chemical spills to floods, tornadoes and prison breaks. In private practice, he’s provided difference-making leadership for clients who have been faced with embezzlement, employee misconduct that drew international media attention, plagiarism charges and more.
Trevonte Diggs comes directly from the news business and understands how the media thinks in a fast-paced, digital environment. He provides effective, efficient communication strategies that will keep reporters on your side during a crisis.
We believe strongly in proper preparation. For some clients, that means we’re ready to step up when disaster strikes and represent you before the media. For others, we can provide crisis communication training and behind-the-scenes guidance so that they can be an effective public face. Either way, it means we’ll sit down with you to develop a crisis communication plan and make all necessary preparations to react swiftly and effectively.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Prepare today.
