Graspan Frankton’s Crisis PR consultants help our customers prepare, defend, and manage reputational issues. Our preparatory service enables clients to understand the risks they face and to be prepared should they arise. Our solutions include advising through reputational risk analysis, protecting by reviewing or creating crisis management plans and strategy. We assist clients by offering counsel and tactical guidance, including support on the ground nationally and internationally.
Either alongside an existing communications team or on our own, we can act as a press office to field press enquiries, issue positional statements and respond to media, ensuring that the client’s position is communicated and understood, and inaccurate information is challenged and corrected.
