Crisis management / special situations

The words crisis and opportunity in wooden blocks on yellow background..jpg

Warren Buffet famously quipped: “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you will do things differently.” This is particularly true today, given the velocity of social media.

I work in partnership with Chief Communications Officers, attorneys, external consultants and other senior leaders to prepare for and manage sensitive, complex issues that can make or break a company's reputation. Working at the intersection of media, business and politics, I advise companies on communication strategy and reputation management through the life cycle of high-profile issues, crises and other special situations.

  • Issues counsel / reputation management

  • Litigation communications

  • Cybersecurity / data privacy

  • Corporate governance / executive transitions

Giving a Speech

Media & presentation training

You only get one chance to make a first impression, as they say. I help leaders to sharpen messaging, improve presentation content and deliver stories in credible and highly engaging ways.

As a communications consultant and former business/financial reporter (who also moonlights as an entertainer), I am intimately familiar with what resonates with audiences and can move hearts and minds. If you need help with a media interview, earnings call, keynote or industry panel, call me to find out how I can help maximize the value of your appearance or interview.

  • Media & presentation training

  • Investor day / quarterly earnings prep

  • Content development

  • Storytelling workshops

Busy Office

Corporate branding and promotion

Savvy communications leaders today are squarely focused on creating authentic, purpose-driven and compelling corporate brands. They understand the importance of communicating not just market leadership but how their organizations add value to society. A powerful corporate brand not only drives revenue and customer engagement, but provides an invaluable reservoir of goodwill and reputation resiliency during a crisis.

I work with companies to develop and amplify corporate brands from articulation and narrative development to campaign creation, driving positive media coverage, social engagement and stakeholder support.

  • Corporate branding / narrative development

  • Multi-channel campaign development / brand activation

  • Earned media strategy and execution

ESG / corporate purpose

ESG (Environment, Governance and Social) is driving profound changes for companies and communications leaders across the globe. Companies must successfully communicate their ESG story to earn the confidence of investors, pass muster with sustainability-minded consumers, attract and retain top talent, and build credibility with regulators and other stakeholders.

With extensive experience advising on ESG matters, I can help sharpen your organization’s ESG strategy or create an holistic ESG program -- from framework and program development to reporting and execution.

  • ESG strategy and program development

  • Peer benchmarking

  • ESG/sustainability reporting and content

  • Media strategy and execution

Young Businessman

C-suite communications / corporate strategy

Increasing the visibility of executives is easy; positioning them as thought leaders is hard. I can help determine how to position an executive or leadership team, what their thought leadership platform(s) should be, and what communication channels would best serve their objectives and align with corporate strategy. And in this era of corporate activism, I can help determine when and how to speak out (or when to stay silent) on various social or geopolitical issues.

Having advised CEOs, Boards and senior leaders on these matters, let me be your thought partner to help create or sharpen your corporate and executive positioning plans or provide the necessary relationships or tactical support to ensure success.

  • Executive positioning / messaging

  • C-suite media/presentation training

  • Thought leadership development

  • Communications strategy / planning

  • Speechwriting / content development
