Your reputation can take years to build and can be lost in a moment when a crisis strikes. In today’s information saturated world your brand is on the line like never before.

When a crisis hits, you need cool heads who can mould, project and protect your reputation across a multitude of platforms and audiences. Our award winning crisis communications team are experts in enabling clients to tell their story across multiple platforms and audiences and reacting to set the record straight.

We take a proactive approach, planning and implementing practices and methods that allow clients to prepare for a crisis before it happens, so you can be in control, rather than letting events dictate your actions.  

We use a wide range of communications tools and tactics to build and protect the reputation of our clients. These include:

  • Crisis audit – we’ll identify the most likely potential risks and issues, what could go wrong and how to deal with it
  • Crisis media and internal communications manual, agreeing who does what when a crisis happens
  • Media materials, pre-written and approved responses which act as holding statements should a media enquiry come in
  • Dedicated phone lines – mobile out of office hours cover providing a 24 hour media response in a crisis
  • Media training –  helping key spokespeople to prepare for press and broadcast interviews
  • Internal communications, ensuring the response to a crisis is co-ordinated across an organisation
  • Post crisis recovery – actively promoting clients through traditional PR and editorial campaigns, social media and lobbying of opinion formers, legislators and politicians


Whatever your budget, whether you are looking for a short-term regional media campaign or a comprehensive international media relations campaign, our Manchester-based team thrives on creating and delivering compelling media relations and PR campaigns that combine fresh ideas with solid, strategic planning. 

At the heart of all our media relations campaigns is a crystal clear focus on your objectives. Whether that’s to maximise exposure for your brand or to engage with stakeholders and opinion formers about a controversial issue.


Every single media relations and PR campaign we deliver is measurable. We know you’ll want us to demonstrate the value and effectiveness of what we do for you.
