Crisis & Strategic Communications
In today’s modern world, crises are happening left and right – to individuals, well-meaning companies, and everyone in between. When this happens, rash decisions are often made from a place of anxiety, stress or fear, and can make your situation even harder than it needs to be. Having a professional crisis communications manager by your side can prevent you from making potentially catastrophic choices, and curb angst among stakeholders.
At Emerald, we know the clock is ticking and many times the situation is dire. You need to have a clean reputation attached to your personal brand or business.

That’s why we’re here to be an extension of your team when you need it most. Our crisis professionals work diligently and effectively to improve your perception and implement a strategy to mitigate any further negative press.

The Emerald Approach
It’s no secret that the best way to handle a crisis is to prevent it. Our crisis prevention program involves offering business leaders, HR representatives, and individuals guidance on how to properly control a crisis. The Emerald crisis team lays the groundwork for your public presence so that, should a crisis hit, the only narrative that is already out there about you or your business is positive.
Of course, most public crises are ones you do not see coming. Our communications experts are also skilled in reactive crisis management. For this, the Emerald team takes a highly individualized approach. While many aspects of crises are similar, we understand that every client is dealing with different personal and financial strains, and our approach to handling their stresses should be treated as such. We start by taking a holistic look at your situation, build a thoughtful plan accordingly, and execute that plan in a way that speaks to your organization’s end goal.
Our team has successfully managed crises ranging from criminal libel, business and personal litigation, discrimination, and issues in the healthcare sector, among others. We know all the considerations, sensitivities, and players involved in these various spaces to effectively navigate every crisis situation. At Emerald, we understand time is of the essence in most crisis situations. We’re here and we’re ready to defend you. With us, you can expect your crisis to be handled with the results that you desire – a clean, online image with an appropriate, guided, and controlled narrative moving forward.
