We work hard at Sutherland Weston to make sure that your organization’s message is delivered to its intended audience. We start by developing a well-defined relationship with you… a relationship that will provide us with the knowledge to execute your organization’s strategy. To that end, we bring a diverse set of skills and a substantial understanding of our industry to your doorstep. And that allows us to help you reach further.

Earned Media Organization

What is “earned media”? Simply put, it’s getting you in the news! We make every attempt to showcase your business or organization in the media. News coverage adds influence and credibility to your company’s message because it’s distributed through a trustworthy third-party organization. Traditional mainstream outlets like print, television, and radio are typical forms of earned media. When incorporated into your marketing communications plan, earned media coverage is a commanding device.

Media Coaching

Being an effective communicator doesn’t come easy… at least, not to most people. At Sutherland Weston we offer you the tools to take control of your media appearances. The skill set we provide enables you to address difficult questions with on-point answers that support your overall message.

Crisis Management

When a major event threatens to harm an organization or the general public, executing a well-defined crisis communications plan is critical in controlling the message… as well as the outcome. Because crisis management deals with threats after they have occurred, the short decision time between messaging development and execution of the communication is typically very short. Sutherland Weston has realized some of our greatest successes during our clients most challenging times. Our firm will ensure that you are in the driver’s seat while executing your crisis management communication plan.
