ISSUES, CRISES AND CHANGE COMMUNICATIONS
Our team presents a wide sum of experience across most industry sectors and areas of communications and public relations.
We have a genuine depth of expertise working in delicate circumstances to prepare for and manage issues and crises.
Some recent examples include:
M Bovis cattle disease issue
Mark Weldon exit from Mediaworks
Hostile takeover of Listed Property Company NPT, by Augusta Capital
Disaster response communications following Kaikoura and Christchurch Earthquakes for lead insurer, Vero Insurance
Reputation management for Chris Cairns and a multiple world champion athlete following doping allegations
Numerous product recalls on behalf of various clients.
We routinely advise clients on crises preparedness programmes, including staff training.
We also have experience in the insurance and electricity industry reforms, and in sectors that operate within sensitive markets such as alcohol, pharmaceutical and gold mining, including Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
We work alongside organisations facing major change to provide strategic communications support.
We are currently engaged by OfficeMax in this regard, following the sale of that business to Private Equity investors.
