Mission description

We were involved in defining crisis governance and setting up strategic and operational crisis management to avoid an acute crisis while preparing for one. We prepared the various steering committees and drew up an action plan covering the various dimensions of the crisis. This action plan made it possible to prioritise the actions to be taken and to allocate them to dedicated working groups, while refining the roles and responsibilities of each person. We advised the Head of Communications on the definition of a communication stance and strategy, and took charge of drafting the language elements. In a second phase, we made recommendations to remedy the structural problems in order to prevent a recurrence.

Our team of experts provides advice and expertise to businesses of all sizes and sectors.
