Crisis Communications

Communicating During a Crisis

Your firm or agency is in trouble… your CFO has been arrested… hackers compromise confidential data… your product is recalled… a tank of toxic chemicals leaked and the plume is spreading… the pressure is on… the camera crew is at the door….

When it happens to you, your business or your agency, how will you tell your employees? Your customers and vendors? What will you say to your neighbors and local elected officials?

Hennes Communications has handled crisis communications for organizations of all types, including:

  • Product recalls
  • Health, safety and environmental concerns
  • Criminal and sexual misconduct
  • Financial and corporate controversies
  • Internet attacks and workplace issues

We can help you develop the appropriate strategy for responding to any crisis, large or small. We’ll work with you to develop appropriate messages and then help you put a strategy in place. We’ll help you identify the best methods to get the word out – face-to-face meetings, web postings, text messages, emails, letters, phone calls, social media, and traditional media. And then we’ll help you monitor reactions and respond appropriately.

Hennes Communications’ Crisis Communication SWAT Team is also adept at media relations. We can help you manage interactions with the media, both proactively and reactively.
