And should disaster strike, our tailor-made communications plans minimize reputational damage.

Mergers and Acquisitions

We provide strategic communications and government relations advisory on both sides of M&A transactions, both large and small, hostile and friendly, and involving companies and regulatory regimes worldwide.

Investor Relations

We work with leading public companies to craft unconventional investor relations strategies based on thorough research, compelling narratives and campaign-style execution. We work seamlessly with lawyers and investment bankers to help see you through.

Shareholder Activism

Shareholder activism is today’s corporate buzz term.  We understand what lies beneath the buzz to achieve real success for our clients on both sides of activism battles.   Our significant experience involving leading global companies and sophisticated activist investors drives our ability to win when it matters most.

Board Advisory

Boards are becoming more critical and are under more scrutiny than ever before.  In this increasingly complex environment, we provide boards of directors with independent advice related to governance, human resources and related crisis response and communications issues when it matters most.

Public Affairs Campaigns

We are a multi-partisan team of senior leaders that have won campaigns for Canada’s most successful companies, political leaders, prominent Canadians, advocacy groups and Non-Government Organizations. We work seamlessly with your team to identify influencers, target decision-makers, fine-tune your messaging, mobilize supporters, generate earned media coverage and execute targeted advertising. When you can’t afford to lose, we’ll help you win.

Stakeholder Communications

In a complex world where you need to proactively communicate with the public, government, regulators, members of the board, employees, and other stakeholders, we can help you deliver the right message to the right audience. We use our proprietary research methods to determine break-through and meaningful messaging so that you can engage, persuade, and mobilize a coalition of supporters.

Coalition Building and Activation

Styled from our political campaign work and experience building online coalitions for advocacy groups and corporations, we specialize in converting online enthusiasm into concrete action that shifts public opinion and changes behaviour.  We identify specific demographics, conduct persona profiling and design a plan that reaches the most engaged members of the public. We monitor, in real-time, how your online coalition is responding to your messaging, and develop triggers that motivate your coalition into action.

Advocacy Advertising

Our experienced team of digital strategists works with our world-class behavioral scientists to identify the triggers that have a decisive impact on your advocacy advertising. We can get your message in front of custom audiences, influencers and constituents across platforms and devices.
