The media may seem to be composed of large, impersonal organizations, but newsrooms are staffed by individuals and our contacts within the Connecticut press corps are unmatched. It’s these relationships that give our clients consistent access to the media. There’s much more to strategic communications than sending out press releases and buying advertising, so we help clients create a media strategy that achieves their goals by integrating careful messaging and targeted outreach.
MJC will help your organization design, build and execute a strategy to accomplish your political and legislative goals. Our team has significant insider expertise managing the development and promotion of policy initiatives, and experience providing strategic advice to corporations and associations seeking legislative results. DMC will help you chart a path through the political process by developing a strategic plan that takes into account the realities surrounding your policy goals.
The most effective crisis communications are based on a plan that's put in place in advance of a crisis. We encourage our clients to prepare for the worst, but we are frequently called upon to minimize the damage from a sudden challenge to the reputation of a business, organization or individual. When legal action thrusts a business, law firm, organization or individual into the public eye, a unique set of public relations skills is required. We can help. We understand not only the Connecticut media but the Connecticut judiciary as well, enabling us to create a strategy that maintains our clients’ good standing with the public and, in some cases, their own clients.
MJC knows how to prepare clients for the media spotlight. Duby McDowell spent 18 years in front of the camera, reporting the news and asking questions; Robyn Gengras prepped "60 Minutes" correspondents for interviews that were as tough as they come. They have helped CEO's, community leaders and political candidates maximize their interactions with the press.
