Issues Management

An issue handled badly in the media can damage business reputation.

Cut-Through Communications develops communications plans to prepare the groundwork for issues likely to attract media attention.

As former government advisers and journalists, we help clients capitalise on media opportunities and avoid damaging headlines.

This may involve identifying pitfalls, preparing key messages and Questions and Answers in advance, developing stakeholder engagement strategies and working out the strongest storylines.

Our consultants can also brief an organisationís spokesperson on how to engage the media and provide advice during a crisis situation.

Workshop Facilitation

Cut-Through Communications facilitates strategic planning and ‘brainstorming’ workshops as part of the development of communications plans.

Half-day or two-hour workshops are our speciality, involving smaller groups of senior managers to work through significant policy and communications issues.

Cut-Through Communications helps tease out discussion in areas requiring careful stakeholder and media management.

We work with key staff to develop a workshop agenda, identify issues likely to be controversial and follow-up to implement communications plans.
