Crisis Management

Rescuing reputations and restoring faith in brands through exhibitions of transparency, accountability and integrity.

REPUTATION RESCUE

STONES PR acts for companies and individuals when their reputations are on the line. We know how the media will frame a crisis if it is left unattended.

Our transparent and human approach to defending and restoring reputations is based on principles of integrity, accountability and transparency.

We provide astute communications counsel and adept media management to ease the pressure on you, while we bring your crisis under control and restore faith in your brand.

 

Consummate control

Turning a tide of opinion requires the control of information around a crisis, while focusing the media’s attention on your efforts to resolve it.

When accountability and authenticity are evident, and efforts to resolve matters are sincere, trust in a brand can be easily restored.

Gathering facts quickly, framing them suitably and presenting them with compelling communication is key to creating a favourable record of events.

Our news sense, storytelling skills and media contacts help us to create balanced coverage, clearer perceptions and more sympathetic opinions around a crisis as it unfolds.

Wraparound response

STONES PR’s wider crisis team provides a wraparound response to crises.

Our full service press office service handles media relations. A team of media trainers, body language coaches and wardrobe experts prepare clients for interview. 

Researchers and investigators are at hand to reveal true sentiment and irrefutable facts that journalists and editors have a right to know.

When required, our trusted legal partners are skilled in repressing and redressing unhelpful coverage and defamatory allegations in the media.
