Agency for Crisis Communication

We protect your reputation

We protect your reputation

Talking about tomorrow also means being able to navigate the way there successfully. More than ever, this is a path of constant transformation and change – with a critical eye on your company and how it deals with it.

This means trust and reputation are becoming increasingly decisive factors for a company´s success – especially during a crisis. With professional crisis communication, we ensure that all your stakeholders perceive you as transparent and credible. This is how we ensure that internal and external expectations regarding information on the situation are handled responsibly. This is the basis and prerequisite for successful reputation protection in critical situations.

We are at your side in every critical situation, for example with

  • Cyber crisis
  • Insolvency
  • Site closure or relocation
  • Cases of fraud
  • Blackmail
  • Compliance violations
  • Product recalls
  • Contamination of products
  • Violations of the Supply Chain Act
  • Accidents
  • Industrial espionage

Ad-hoc crisis consulting

Ad-hoc crises occur suddenly and can threaten your company´s existence. The challenge is big because you have to react immediately. From the beginning, we are at your side to ensure that you get through the crisis well and take back control of your communication.

  • Crisis training: From the front desk to the CEO – we teach every employee how crises work and how they can help to overcome them.
