Public relations firm Edelman is very proud of its crisis management practice. As its website says:
Companies must address parallel challenges which must be addressed head on: the actual issues or crisis situation and the potential reputational fall-out of not being perceived to handle the related problems in a timely and effective manner. Edelman’s specialist Crisis and Issues Management & Communications team is organised and equipped to ensure that both angles are covered through an integrated management and communications approach which anticipates and addresses both underlying risks and surface realities.
All the more amusing, then, that the News section of Edelman’s website makes no mention of the fact that a number of naked demonstrators from the Climate Camp are currently occupying their London office in protest at their PR campaign for a new coal power station at Kingsnorth…
