Evidence-Driven Advocacy sm
FaegreBD Consulting's professionals include former journalists who have devised and carried out media relations programs for corporations, nonprofit organizations and officials at all levels of government. We understand the complexities of local, state and federal public policy debates as well as the challenges of communications surrounding crises litigation and mergers and acquisitions.
Our media relations professionals work closely with client communications, government relations and legal professionals to effectively manage media inquiry response, media monitoring and media engagement – whether in a relatively "routine" situation or a full-blown crisis.
When it is important that one or more of a client's executives take a leading role with the media, our professionals work with them to hone message delivery and prepare to deal with the questions which our experience shows reporters are most likely to ask. Message delivery training also is useful when the audience is regulators or policy makers.
This work is always built on a firm basis of research message development and message testing. Our professionals also work with clients to identify appropriate allies who can lend credibility to media outreach.
FaegreBD Consulting has considerable experience working with health and life sciences industry advocacy and technical media as well as national and local media.
