About Us

Why We’re Different

It’s been said that it takes a lifetime to build a reputation – and only seconds to destroy it. The same is true for a business, nonprofit or government agency, no matter if there’s one or 1,000 employees.

And in today’s world of “gotcha” journalism and mobile devices capable of sending pictures and HD video to Facebook, YouTube and CNN within seconds, your business or organization can face a crisis at any time. When you call for help, you need a fast response from experts who can quickly assess your situation and resolve your issues. And because every crisis situation is different, you need someone who can effectively develop a strategy specific to your situation and concerns.

Hennes Communications is staffed exclusively by senior-level consultants with many years of experience in crisis and reputation management. We are flexible, responsive and we’re able to get up to speed quickly, understand your issues, develop the best strategy for your situation and then partner with you to execute that strategy. Most important, our entire practice is focused on helping clients prepare for and manage crisis situations and effectively navigate through issues that threaten your reputation.

We think strategically and can guide you through a wide variety of potential and actual crises. We know how to get you to the “other side” with your reputation and market share preserved – and maybe even enhanced.
