Unlike other consultants, Karen Friedman has a unique gift of telling you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. She is tough and honest so we get what we need, not what we ask for.
If your company was unexpectedly thrust into the spotlight, would you know what to do? Can you clearly communicate with the media, stakeholders and other important audiences when your reputation is at stake?
You gave us invaluable help in understanding the media environment in a time of crisis, and help in crafting our message with integrity and prudence.
