Crisis Q Horizon + Global Gateway STUDIO

We bring added resources, preparedness, expertise and creativity to support and strengthen an organization's reputation and deepen its connection with audiences.

Crisis Q Horizon

Crisis Q Horizon is our suite of services and tools that helps organizations of all sizes mitigate and manage reputational risk.

In today’s 24/7 communications environment, organizations are more vulnerable than ever to a crisis arising and causing reputational harm. Most are not as prepared as they could be.

We believe prevention is better than cure. We develop a customized approach that aligns with an organization’s specific crisis communications needs.

Retainer Services

We start with a 90-day deep-dive planning and discovery period to get to know the business and identify potential crisis vulnerabilities. Then we are on call to provide counsel and guidance, and scale up to help lead if a crisis emerges.

Immediate Response

When a crisis hits, every second counts. We mobilize organizations so that communications both leads and as well as drives the response. We strategize, scenario plan, craft messages, manage media, monitor dialogue and methodically look around corners so our clients recover as quickly as possible from difficult situations.

Vulnerability Assessment

In order to stop crises before they happen, an organization must anticipate what potential or possible crises they may face in the future. We use the Crisis Preparedness Quotient diagnostic tool to analyze an organization’s risk of crisis and identify strengths and weaknesses in key areas including reputation, culture, allies, voice, digital diligence, leadership trust and planning and practice. By proactively identifying potential problem areas, we can tackle them now and minimize risk in the future.

Training + Assessment Workshops

Who leads crisis management in the organization? Are they ready for primetime? Our workshops, training courses and seminars are practical and valuable for communications professionals, full corporate teams or even individuals. Whether we refresh existing knowledge or start from scratch, we work with our clients to develop the right training session.

We believe creativity elevates ideas.
