Crisis Management & Communications

Every organisation is susceptible to a crisis, as a result of internal developments, external threats or changes to the environment in which they operate. The common theme is that a balanced response to such a crisis is essential – and the wrong decisions can have serious implications for an organisation’s reputation and future.

Pro-active engagement

At Whitehouse, we work with our clients to identify where particular issues have the potential to become crises or damage their reputation and then to mitigate this threat. Even when this is not possible and an unavoidable crisis develops, we provide a holistic crisis management approach, ensuring that every level of our clients’ communications are addressed, that members of their teams and supply chains are fully briefed on the agreed approach, and that our clients take a proactive approach to stakeholder engagement, ensuring that any issues are dealt with swiftly and effectively.

Senior counsel

Whitehouse provides considered strategic counsel on crisis PR and reputational management to our clients’ chief executives and board level executives, including exhaustive preparations for dialogue with stakeholders, the questions that could be asked of them and their organisations, and the client’s key messages.
