Contingency planning and risk analysis
We work with our clients to identify the potential risks to their business or organisation and to ensure there are comprehensive plans in place to mitigate those risks. This includes identifying potential critics, providing strategic advice and senior counsel to clients’ chief executives and boards, honing key messages and training our clients to provide a response to criticism or adverse circumstances – whether that involves giving evidence to a select committee or an interview on live television.
Whitehouse works with our clients to identify their key stakeholders, encompassing both likely supporters and potential critics, and to ensure regular communication with these political, charitable, business and journalist opinion formers. This ensures that in adverse circumstances our clients are communicating with an audience knowledgeable about the client’s activities, and that our clients also have a bank of advocates ready to provide support when needed.
Positive media relations
We work with our clients to help ensure they continue to engage constructively with the media and to provide positive news stories and comment that reinforces the reputation of their organisation and offsets potential criticism.
Our team is available at any time to provide immediate assistance in the event of a reputational issue. If you urgently need support, please contact Chris Rogers, on +44 (0)20 7793 2536 / +44 (0)7720 054189 (out of hours) or email Chris.Rogers@whitehouseconsulting.co.uk.
