IMPACTFUL PUBLIC AFFAIRS
Strategic communication is much more than saying the right thing. It is a management strategy that requires an in-depth understanding of our clients’ ultimate objectives.
It is a political campaign approach to winning the argument in the court of public opinion by refuting a client’s detractors and recruiting the undecided.
High profile clients face high risk if they don’t handle communications properly. It can affect reputation and your revenues. Sometimes it is the process that needs to be improved, and sometimes it is the message. And what you say to your external audience, must not be misinterpreted by your internal team. Felkel Group crafts those messages, we identify the most important outlets for distribution and monitor the reaction.
We have dealt with reform, reorganization, leaderships transitions, crisis and of course, milestone achievements and successful launches.
If your company or organization finds itself in litigation, there are two battles that must be won: in the courtroom, and in the court of public opinion. Defense teams must include attorneys, experts, and communications professionals who can make the case with a jury, the media, and the public. Proactive messaging must be executed to frame the debate on your terms on multiple fronts. You can’t afford to win the battle and lose the war.
We work with legal counsel to ensure that everyone understands how statements, comments, and perceptions both in court and in the media, work to your advantage.
Dealing with the media, taking questions, responding to inquiries, and going on camera can be intimidating for a lot of executives and leaders. And let’s face it, most don’t ever deal with the media unless there has been a problem or challenge.
We prepare leaders and spokespersons for hearings, testimonies and townhalls, training them to contend with simple questions to hostile grilling.
With ties into many private sector groups and throughout the public sector, we bring analytical, communication, and negotiation skills to assist our clients in growing their market. The ability to get our clients in front of the decision-makers is a key part of our firm’s DNA. Whether it is seeing new ways existing opportunities could be developed or finding completely new routes to market.
We bring creative thinking to our clients daily.
