I can help you with these areas:
- Communications and public relations strategy
- Media relations
- Media analysis
- Issue management and crisis communications
- Social media
- Internal communications
- Media training
I can be your virtual communications director.
If you have employees responsible for communications but you feel that they might benefit from working with somebody who has a bit more experience – let me know. I can design a plan for them to develop, will mentor them during their development journey. In case of media crisis, I will jump in, giving you more security that it will be handled well.
The same is possible if you do not have any communications staff, but you want to develop this function internally, with people within your organization and with your personal involvement as owner or CEO.
I believe successful communications must be authentic. Therefore my role is to help you and your organization communicate effectively and not communicate on your behalf. Hence it does not matter too much what industry you are in, because you will provide industry insights.
However, in some situation, such as media crisis, time matters. And if the consultants have deep industry knowledge, their can arrive much faster at proper recommendations. From this perspective, my industry areas are:
- Aviation (I am a pilot)
- Energy (9 years industry experience)
- Pharma (10 years industry experience)
