Trusted Advisors for the Digital Age.

Unparalleled Experience + Next Generation Thinking

 

WHAT WE DO

FOR YOU

The world has changed dramatically with an endless news cycle fueled by digital platforms and social media, and complicated by misinformation and outright fake news. That presents tremendous challenges, but also great opportunities. At the most critical junctures, today’s leaders need the right representation, an ambassador to the digital age.

 

We help companies, nonprofits and candidates navigate a world where none of the old rules apply. We know how to seize opportunity through strategic pursuit of our clients’ business or public policy goals, while protecting and enhancing their reputations.

STRATEGIC MESSAGING & COALITION COMMUNICATIONS

A crisp message is vital to the success of any public affairs effort. Targeting the right audience and building relationships is crucial to delivering it. We develop integrated communications plans that reach influencers, drive news coverage, and shape public opinion. Clients trust us because of our experience successfully bringing diverse interests together in support of their public policy positions.

CRISIS COMMUNICATIONS

 

Our team includes former officials who played a role in crisis communications around prominent issues, including immigration reform and border security, the government’s response to the H1N1 virus outbreak, and the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). We’ve led rapid response for broad coalitions and businesses to shape national and international coverage in real time. We help you take a deep breath, assess your needs, prioritize, and shape the media cycle.

CONTENT CREATION & SOCIAL MEDIA

Our team has extensive experience creating unique content for clients that can be utilized across media platforms. We have placed opinion pieces in widely read publications and crafted speeches for high-profile leaders. We work with clients to establish and amplify their digital presence, whether that's creating effective strategies for social media or executing successful digital advertising plans.

MEDIA TRAINING &
SPEECH PREPARATION

In today’s 24-hour news cycle it’s more important than ever to be well prepared for any press interview or shareholder presentation. A good interview or speech may not go viral, but a bad one certainly will. Our team has prepared the President of the United States, members of his Cabinet, as well as non-profit and c-suite executives.

MEDIA RELATIONS

Good media coverage isn’t a one-time affair. It takes developing relationships and understanding what drives media to cover issues important to a client. Our team has decades of combined experience building those relationships across a wide range of issue areas, and with diverse audiences. 

WHEN IT MATTERS MOST
WE HELP YOU TELL YOUR STORY

Our partners bring decades of experience tackling complex challenges. We’ve led communications efforts on presidential campaigns; helped clients navigate geopolitical waters; and, handled media strategy around the government's response to the global financial crisis. We can help you when it matters most.

By helping our clients better drive their agendas, we have helped them reach their goals and turned them into go-to media sources.  We know how to generate the buzz that gets their priorities noticed. In times of crisis, we help you take a deep breath, assess your needs, prioritize engagement, and shape the media cycle.
