Issues management

Sometimes events happen without warning and organisations need to be confident they have the systems to deal with them.  Ascend Strategic Counsel can advise clients on ways to mitigate these issues, from a political perspective.  This can include ensuring appropriate, politically attuned media, engaging the right set of stakeholders with messages that explain both impacts and solutions and working with clients in building a political and bureaucratic network to avoid regulatory and legislative surprises in the future.

Peter has provided advice to clients dealing with the unexpected, such as assisting clients respond to inquiries established with little warning that threatened business models, proposed buyouts that triggered political controversy, or last-minute policy changes by state governments that undermined trading volumes and commercial viability.

Ascend Strategic Counsel appreciates the need to move quickly, activate the appropriate decision-making channels and campaign swiftly with the right messages to deal with the unexpected.
