Public Relations Campaigns
Perception is reality. It’s no longer more than just sending out press releases. In this age of Twitter, there needs to be a well-orchestrated campaign of traditional media management, harnessing of social media, personal image management, etc.

Crisis Management
Can a company survive a crisis? No company or organization is immune to crisis – Giftgate, Bridgegate, GM ignition problems, etc. It strikes every type of business. Workplace violence, destructive acts of nature, the unexpected death of an executive, fire, accidents, and product recalls pose unforeseen threats and business interruptions. Crisis management is a relatively new field of marketing. How a company handles a crisis is more important than the crisis itself. Speed, transparency and commitment to managing a crisis speak volumes about how the crisis company is judged. Many experts agree that bad news, even toxic press, can be survived if organizations are image conscious on an ongoing basis. Public perception is very important to a company and sometimes more important than the bottom-line.

Using my own case studies, real world and personal experiences, I counsel organizations with implementable strategic skills and the knowledge base needed to immediately implement a crisis communication plan. I provide this service for any size or any type of organization.

I also teach seminars in crisis management at the University Of Richmond School Of Continuing Studies. (spcs.richmond.edu)
