Crisis
Management

Every company is exposed to third party or direct crisis which may have different kind of impacts on companies’ reputations or might put at risk the companies’ business and staff. Our experience shows that most crisis situations can be avoided by strengthening the company’s ability to discover issues before they happen and thereby optimize crisis management. What really matters is how the crisis is handled, and not least how business is able to proceed...

Apollo Strategists has a second-to-none experience in crisis communications. We advise the management so they can stay on course and make the right choices in the midst of an intensive media crisis or calamity. We are available 24 hours a day, and with a very short notice, which can be crucial. In close cooperation with the organization, we develop an issues management system that fits specific issues.

When crisis hits, we are very often the only communication contact point to the outside world, in order to provide the companies with enough air to take care of the problem itself.

  • We also step in as fire(wo)men and are available on a 24h/7d basis for clients whether they have an emergency plan or not.

Media
Relations

A company’s reputation must be nurtured and maintained and for that purpose there is a need to establish and maintaining good working relationship with key media and journalists. Before we decide which media relations should be prioritized and engaged, we analyse the situation and on that basis give a strategic recommendation.

The effectiveness of management depends to a large extent on the ability and willingness to communicate and translate the strategy. However, the talent to communicate does not necessarily come by itself. We work systematically with management in a personal and confidential environment. Media and message training is one of the tools we use when we need to strengths the leader in communicating both internally and with stakeholders and media.
